    Two answers.

    Don't buy HP cameras - ever !

    It isn't even a dSLR.

    1) Wrong newsgroup - this is for DSLRs.

    2) I find the HP cameras particularly unpleasant to use;
    the electronic viewfinder seems to freeze for a much longer
    time on a half-depress of the shutter than on other cameras
    I've tried (including some much older models).
    The resulting images seem fine, admittedly.

    Suggest you post at rec.photo.digital.point+shoot or .zlr as may apply.
    this ng is about slr type digital cameras and system components.

    Why so much animosity towards HP cameras?

    Because their crap.

    When it comes to printers I'll choose HP over all others. HP ScanJets are excellent as
    well. However, not all of their other product lines are that good. I had 8 HP Vectra
    computers. Of those eight, one was just junk, a lemon from day one. The others had
    problems that I don't see in other computers that I maintained (IBM Thinkpads, Dell desktop
    and notebooks, Sony Vaio, etc.) I will never get a HP computer again ! That same office
    bought a HP digital camera. It was junk and we shortly thereafter bought a Canon PowerShot.
    The Canon is far superior than the HP. Since then I have come across other HP cameras and
    none have compared to the Canon and Olympus P&S cameras I used before I went to a Canon
    dSLR.

    Sometimes companies think that they should enter a market and try to get a good market
    share. However, companies should not just "enter a market" without having a good product
    line to begin with. Photography is not a strong suite with HP and it doesn't look like it
    ever will. You are just far better off getting a camera from what was a film manufacturer
    that went digital. HP's foray into Digital Photography is NOT one of their better product
    lines.
