  • HP Raises the Bar

    Aug 17, 2005 by wsmunch is a Lead on Epinions in Electronics
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to use & feature filled, fast, compact, great price
    Cons: More manual settings makes slower picture, lithium-ion battery charges in camera

    Summary: (This is a repost of my original review, which disappeared through some epinions crack) Once again HP outdoes themselves with their value-market but powerful technology. I had previously owned (and reviewed) the ... read more

    Pros: Easy to use, good battery life, lots of features
    Cons: Low quality video

    Summary: I love this camera. I have had it for a couple of years now. It is very easy to use. It takes great pictures. It has a lot of features that I don't even use. The pictures are clear. It is easy to transfer your pictures to your computer it you ... read more

  • Good camera - but several problems

    Mar 16, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good HP PC software, good battery life, easy use
    Cons: Many problems with LCD screen, and the camera kept freezing up.

    Summary: I bought this HP camera about 4 years ago. The camera has very good picture quality, and it is relatively easy to use. The zoom is a basic 3 x optical zoom, which I have felt have been insufficient for my needs on many occasions. I must admit that ... read more

  • R707 Was A Great Value

    Dec 18, 2006 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Great Pics for megapixels, compact, approx. 1hour for non-stop video.
    Cons: Small screen, cannot zoom while shooting video.

    Summary: I purchased the HP707 in the earlier part of 05' after months of comparison. Once ready to purchase I researched the price and found that this particular model was going bye-bye to make way for new 6 pixel. After days of footwork I found it at Office ... read more

  • Great for point-and-shoot ; may experience LCD issues

    May 29, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great overall features and flexibility, stylish, great size and feel
    Cons: Lack of included accessories; LCD is not always reliable; only one-year warranty

    Summary: This is fine to buy refurb or cheap, but even if you can get it new, I personally would pass it up for something newer and hopefully more durable. Don't get me wrong--I love this camera's functionality and the pictures it takes. I do not love the ... read more

  • Boatloads of Features

    Jan 18, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great resolution, small size, MPEG mode, onboard battery (removable), durable.
    Cons: Slow shutter speed, plethora of features: Steep learning curve for some.

    Summary: Price for me was $0 as I got it from a rep as a seed model. Sorry... They say that the determining factor in a digital camera is the lens. All "lenses" being equal, the HP Photosmart R707 is a great camera on features alone. The standard features ... read more

  • A okay camera...

    Dec 19, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sleek design. Not bulky. Easy to use.
    Cons: Takes too long to charge flash. A lot of red eye.

    Summary: I bought the HP R707 in the summer of 2004. I haven't had a whole lot of problems with it since I bought it, but there are a few things that peeve me off about it. But we'll start with the good things: It's a very sleek looking camera. Nice design. ... read more

    Pros: In-Camera Red-Eye Removal, easy to use, image quality, battery life.
    Cons: Had trouble installing software, optical zoom can get blurry

    Summary: The HP R707 is one of those cameras that everyone can pick up and use because of its user friendly style and its many options & accessories available which will keep you interested. My favorite option is the built in red eye remover thats available after ... read more

  • HP R707 - Value for Money

    Apr 6, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very simple to use camera, reasonable price tag, in depth help guide included.
    Cons: LCD of 1" which should have been bigger considering the 'free space' on the camera.

    Summary: My Uncle wanted my buy a Digital Camera and asked me for a suggestion. I wasn't too sure about his budget but recommended a Nikon to him anyway. I now found out that he went for an HP R707 and got the chance to play with it. Though not a leader ... read more

  • Loads of out-of-focus pictures

    Feb 9, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Good camera help, good zoom, easy to use
    Cons: Out of focus pics, poor battery life, unusable software.

    Summary: This is a good camera in the overall, but since I have it I am getting loads of out of focus pictures. When you shoot the subject must not move for at least two seconds, otherwise it will come out unfocused. The red-eye removal feature is totally ... read more

  • One of HPs Best for some months

    Sep 27, 2004 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Ease of producing a super sharp print from field to frame.
    Cons: The camera so compact one with big fingers may experience difficulty with small buttons.

    Summary: The HP 707 represents the best camera put out by the company for some time. It is solidly built with SS front and collapsible lens which withdraws into body after a shot. The initial cost is extremely competitive for a 5.0 megapixel digital. I purchased ... read more

  • Value-For-Money! GREAT for a beginner! Barely there for a pro-sumer.

    Aug 31, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sharp 5 megapixels. Built in Panorama guide+preview Unlimited video!
    Cons: No Manual (shutter priority) mode. Lousy Macro. Poor autofocus in low light!

    Summary: I've used many different digital cameras (Nikon, Canon, Sony, Minolta, Fuji, Olympus) before, and I wasn't sure what to expect from HP. The metal front body is excellent. I'm a sucker for smooth svelte metal finishes. It's the same as my Fisher and ... read more

  • What a deal!

    Jun 7, 2004 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: PRICE!!, 3x optical and 8x digital, easy to use menu GREAT SHOTS!!
    Cons: Zoom button could be bigger, not much else to pick on.

    Summary: This is a great camera. I looked at many different cameras Sony, Canons and the rest of the usual suspects. Then a saw an ad for this and I had to check it out. The features truly set this camera apart form all others. Not to mention that you are really ... read more

  • Nice body, Great Eyes. Excellent for direct printers.

    May 11, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great design, red eye reduction, good price
    Cons: upper midgrade optics (could be better, but the price would probably skyrocket)

    Summary: The HP 707 caught my eye because it's an HP that simply doesn't look like the typically boxy HP. I'd heard good things about the new HP line this year; apparently they've won a few awards, nothing I could testify to mind you. When I picked up the 707 ... read more

  • Takes great photos, built well, long battery life

    May 10, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Snazzy facade, easy to use, 5 megapixels, lots of manual options, takes fantastic shots
    Cons: Not very compact, could be a little faster.

    Summary: There's quite a few digital cameras to choose from in the $350 price point. For starters, you've got the Canon A80, the Canon S410, the Pentax Optio S4I, and the Casio QVR-51. So why did I choose this HP model? Well, honestly, because I got it cheap. But ... read more

    Pros: This camera is light, compact and fairly easy to use. Pictures turn out great.
    Cons: The camera recovers slowly from taking a picture and ready for another.

    Summary: I purchased my camera after going on a cruise with friend who had one. At first it took great pictures and worked great. Was fairly easy to use but recovery time from each picture is too great. After owning the camera a year the telescopic lens ... read more

    Pros: Terrific Camera for the Price
    Cons: LCD Screen Cracks/Shatters

    Summary: The LCD Screen on my HP R707 has shattered twice, both times without dropping or knocking the camera up against anything or exposure to any extreme temperatures. The first time, it was covered under warranty and HP sent me a new camera. The second time ... read more

    Pros: When it works, a good, all-round package.
    Cons: I had real problems with two cracked screens.

    Summary: I write to warn people of my experience with this camera. I am only a unit of one - and it may not represent the wider R707 experiences, but beware: In January 2005 I bought an HP R707 digital camera. It worked well, but the screen broke for no ... read more
