    “The HP PhotoSmart 812 digital camera is small and...”

    Written on: 30/07/2006 by Saskabush (1 review written)

    The HP PhotoSmart 812 digital camera is small and lightweight, and the Pentax zoom lens retracts behind a protective shutter when powered off. Unfortunately, the camera sucks battery life like crazy. I have had to change batteries after taking as few as 18 pictures. The shutter button sits just in from to the power button. I have powered the camera off by accident way too many times because of this. There is also way too much lag between the pressing the shutter button and the actual shot being… Read Full Review

    Written on: 06/07/2005 by caren (1 review written)

    We baby our camera's and have never had the problems that we have had with the HP PhotoSmart 812. We are on our 3rd camera and are expecting another one from the repair center today... they have had it for 2 weeks after quoting us a 2-3 day turn around. They keep sending us refurbished camera's... one which quit working as soon as I turned it on the first time! I have never been so fed up with a company and will NEVER buy or recommend another HP product… Read Full Review

    “I'm an ameteur filmaker, but this is the first stills...”

    Written on: 29/05/2003 by Billywill. (1 review written)

    I'm an ameteur filmaker, but this is the first stills dig cam I've had. It's a doddle to use. 20 minutes with the instructions will do. Settings are no problems. A few buttons let you see your pics, magnify and see details on the pics, delete any, queue any for printing or email, or tell you how many more there's room for on the memory card.
    I'll never try the video capure!!

    Written on: 27/01/2003 by lev. (1 review written)

    I have had this camera for a month and half and overall I was extremely pleased with the picture quality. I use it intensively. The battery life is too short however. Luckily it uses regular batteries so I use rechargeable and always carry a spare. The card that ships with the camera is far too small so it is necessary to budget for additional memory cards… Read Full Review

    It's priced at around £250, so it's the cheapest 4megapixel cam there is!
    <br>
    <br>A4 pics from it's settings at 3stars setting look fine, and it's highest pixel setting is 4stars.
    <br>
    <br>For picture quality there is nothing that can touch this cam for £250!!

    Written on: 20/07/2002 by hell. (1 review written)

    I have had this HP Photosmart 812 digital camera for three weeks. It's been tested under all conditions : the camera worked perfectly under them all : indoor (with or without flash), outdoor, macro mode, zoom.

    I was amazed by the picture quality : sharp and with correct colours.
    Video mode : not great quality, but enough for a simple recording
    Sound capture : not very good… Read Full Review
