5.0 out of 5 stars A "real" camera for people who enjoy photography, December 13, 2001
This review is from: Hewlett Packard PhotoSmart C912 2MP Digital Camera w/ 3x Optical Zoom (Electronics)
I spent some time looking around before buying. This camera gives me the level of control/options/manual override that I am used to in 35mm cameras. My 35mm camera is a Pentax, so the controls and functions are familiar. I also like the SLR operation and the size/weight/feel of the camera.
A couple of worthwhile plus points:
1. The battery is a rechargeable video camera battery and has very good life - you can take a couple of hundred pictures including a good number with flash without it needing to be recharged. Much better performance than my friends have been able to get from their cameras.
2. The direct, onboard, USB connenction makes downloading images to my PC very simple and quick. The CompactFlash card format is maturing - large capacity cards are readily available and not too expensive.
Just two small quibbles:
1. The camera has a hot-shoe flash attachment but only works in manual (not automatic TTL) mode. This means my Pentax flash unit fits but doesn't work in with the metering system.
2. The 'continuous' mode takes a picture every few seconds. You'd be hoping for perhaps 2 per second. This feature isn't actually useful at that speed.
Those two small things aside I've been very happy with the camera and the results I've been able to get with it.
