Great little lightweight camera/video recorder

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

This camera has great picture quality for the size. However, I wish it had a touch screen like other hp cameras. Also, when doing playback on the videos ON the camera, you can't hear the sound. Overall, it will be great to take hiking and on trips where weight can be a problem. I have had great feedback on my pics. People thought I took them with a big, fancy camera!

Great little camera, with user friendly features! Beautiful pictures!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I really love this camera/video recorder. It is lightweight, easy to use and takes crisp, beautiful photos! Transferring to my PC is as easy as plugging in a cord. All the info I may need to use it, is ON the camera menu, so even without the manual, I was able to learn all I needed by checking in the menu. Large viewing screen, and great zoom capabilities! Absolutely recommend!
