Default Any cons to the HP Photosmart 720?

Hi everyone,

We're finally able to consider buying a camera $, and after all of the great advice here and research I've done, I'm zooming in (!) on the HP Photosmart 720.

Are there any drawbacks that we need to think about before buying this camera? I've gone to the store and held it, and I like the size and feel of it. Any smaller and I would lose it!

Thanks for any thoughts anyone might offer,

Jill

It is a good camera. If you like the feel, then it can be a great camera for you. Have fun shooting.

Hi Jill

Welcome to the forum. Wow, you must be quite a wonderful time manager with three 2 y/o olds in your family!

Yes, the 720 might serve your needs.

For about a $100 more you could pick up the HP850.

You would have 8x zoom (versus 3x in 720) and
you would have 5 megapixels (versus 3.3 in 720).

More megapixels means better quality photos.

You might review Steve's reviews on the two different cameras.

Good luck
