Average picture quality, slow focus, slow start-up. Good pictures in natural light.

The HP Photosmart 318 worked okay, except for settings sticking while using it in cold weather (couldn't zoom and then change back at times). The normal to download photos is connect cable then turn on camera. Sometimes it wouldn't recgonize the camera (had to unplug camera while turned on and then plug back in to get it to work). Overall I really enjoyed it. It was my first digital camera.

The camare is really good. It is a good equipment to pass time and comes up handy on occasions. The zoom is bit less.

It's a good "starter" camera. It was the first digital camera i got, so I've not really tried any others yet. (hopefully soon!)
