HP Photosmart 635 review:


Logical, easy-to-use controls and menus; solid feel for the price; adjustable light sensitivity; above-average 2-megapixel picture quality; strong battery life.

Long shot-to-shot and shutter times; subpar LCD; no custom white balance.

This Photosmart is a simple, competent snapshooter with a competitive price.

HP Photosmart 635


The HP Photosmart 635, the perfect digital camera for beginners, has 2 megapixels and 3x optical zoom. Targeting photography newbies and analog-to-digital first-timers, the HP Photosmart 635 faces a lot of competition against many other cameras of its...

Unlimited QVGA movie mode with auto exposure ; Excellent infinity focusing

No built-in lens barrier ; Slow (Both playback and shooting) ; Macro almost unusable (Constantly out of focus) ; Movie mode resolution only at QVGA, noisy movies ; Redeye, soft macro photos and color fringing ; Inaccurate battery indicator

Overall, the HP Photosmart 635 is a great beginner's camera but lacks some functions that cameras of this class have. Image quality issues (Especially macro mode), no continuous shooting, slow playback and tremendous shutter lag leave a lot to be...

It is an extremely easy camera to use - ideal for children just starting out in digital photography. The 'wizard' function makes choosing modes a breeze

HP Photosmart 635 2.1MP Digital Camera


Overall, it’s a nice camera, but we decided we would rather find one to buy for maybe $80 - $100 if we were going to spend any money on one, rather than take this one for $25 and be forever frustrated with the battery life factor.

Good camera, but battery hungry


Great little camera. Really simple to use, and takes great pictures. I've tried several size memory cards in it and works well with all of them, even the 512mb that I have in it now. The memory card slot is inside the battery compartment, so when you ...
