HP Photosmart 735

Editor's Review

The HP Photosmart 735 is a no frills, 3-megapixel point and shoot that offers good value and reasonable photo quality. As one of the least-expensive 3-megapixel cameras available as of 12/03, the HP 735 may present a compelling option to photographers on a budget. Though its manual controls are very limited, the 735's simple design and easy operation makes it a good choice for digital novices.

HP photosmart 735 (Neil Hornby — 11/29/2007)

Not a bad camera but battery life is shocking. Page 99 of instruction booklet refers to using NiMH batteries and not NiCd.

great (tazz — 07/15/2007)

I bought my hp735 about two and onehalf years ago. It cearly states to use ni-cad bat and such. I don't know why people have such problems. I bought mine as referb and have taken over 30 min. at one time vid, plus about 300 picts on one trip to the mountains. I only have a little problem getting my 4gig card to read. But I love it. It is not a 35mm for quick jerk up and on shots but it is a digital..

Buy stock in Energizer (Tom Czyz — 12/26/2006)

This camera is aggravating, when you want to take a picture the bateries go dead after a few shots. I normally carry four extra re-chargable bateries with me. However they have no shelf life and are usually half dead when you go to use them.
Picture quality is fair to good. Features were nice if you could use them. I bought it because it had a nice package with the printer and base.
Don't buy it, I'll give you mine.

It SUCKS!!!!! TOTAL TRASH (Casey Brown — 12/26/2006)

I got this camera for Christmas in 2004. It hs never worked properly. It shuts off with the lens extended constantly. It eats batteries like crazy. It has just been an all around headache. I will never ever buy anything from HP ever again.

A Decent Camera with a few flaws (David MacLean — 12/25/2006)

If I had done more research I would likely have bought a different model but have been mostly pleased with this camera. I have never had any problems with reliability and have never had any of the problems mentioned by other reviewers. I use a 128 Mb Sandisk memory card. The "battery low" message comes up fairly quickly but it will take several pictures after before it quits. I always carry a spare set and have never run out. I use 2100 mAh rechargeable batteries. I have taken over 2000 pictures with this camera and have found the picture quality very good outdoors. Indoors in poor lighting the auto focus can be quite slow at times and I find the flash a little weak if you aren't very close to your subject. It's very easy to use and so is best suited to quick snapshots. I suggest you update to the latest firmware from HP's website as it seems to correct some the auto focus issues.

I'll know better next time (Edna Hatcher — 12/13/2006)

Purchased my HP735 spring of 2004. Camera seemed to work fine, pic quality was very good, batteries lasted long enough. Now, after limited use, the batteries die within minutes, long delay in actually taking pic, camera clears memory card at random. Now I have trouble unloading pics to my computer. Tried to unload pics a few days ago and in the process all pics were erased from card.
My next digital will not be a HP.

So so (Brendan57 — 11/26/2006)

This camera was our first digital one, we payed a mint for it too, with the stupid dock and everything, the board inside fried within 2 years but we had an extened warrenty, don't buy this camera it is poop. it's not that bad, but in campfire situations or night low-light it sucks.

don't buy - worthless (Gloria — 08/28/2006)

Yes, it did take good pictures and was great at first. Batteries lasted apx 6-10 pictures! After 6 months started to make a humming noise which hp said was fine... Well, now at 2years ot is completely dead & HP support was not helpful at all, they wanted to charge $80 to check out the camera or sell me a refurbished one with $10 off. Very rude, never an HP again!

Don't Buy (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

What everyone is telling you about the batteries is correct. They will literally last about 10 pictures and then die. I should have just bought stock in Duracel when they came out with this camera.

NO BATTERY LIFE, HOLDS NO PICTURES (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

The battery stinks. After 2 minutes the battery goes dead. If you want good quality pictures, it only holds EIGHT. But those 8 pictures usualy come out good. Really big, its not thin.

Could be good, if less battery drain (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I can't imagine what HP was thinking in selling this with no more battery life than it has. It makes it essentially a piece of junk!

Greedy for Battery (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I have had this camera for 2 years and 4 months now. I had it for christmas 2004 and one of the reasons I still have this crap is because my lovely sister bought it for my present and I feel bad to part with it...but it's time has come. This was my first camera..ever..!The reviews are right, it eats batteries like a starving Ethiopian orphan. Outdoor pictures are great, but low light or indoor pics are poor. In movie mode, the video and audio quality is ok. This camera embarrass me on my recent trip to Jamaica where it died on me for the umpteenth time when it really mattered and that was the last straw. So I am on the hunt for another digital camera. Ok so I om open to suggestions on how to buy a new digital camera.

FLASH DIED! Tec support not helpful, random strange quirks (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I received this camera as a birthday present before a school trip to New York. I was very happy with it, and it worked perfectly for about a year and a half. It did use batteries a lot, but it wasn't that horrible. But it started doing weird things like taking a picture then saying it was corrupted, or an unsupported file, and zooming in and out on its own, and taking forever to save to the memory card. Then a few months ago the flash quit working, tec support says there is nothing they can do and its out of its warranty period. So if you only need it to work for a year or two, don't hesitate to buy, but if you want something a little more long lasting, stay away. I think I'll be looking into a kodak digital camera next...

Takes great pictures (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I have taken almost 1000 pictures with this camera and today the flash finally quit working. I don't have much of a BATTERY problem when I use Lithium batteries. I get over 100 pictures with at least 33% flashes with two Lithium batteries. Alkaline and ni-cads... did not last long. Please... use Lithium... you won't have a problem. Another thing people have complained about... not bright enough... please read instructions in the manual you can set your camera to make a brighter pictures. This camera has been dropped and rough handled and has done well.

process and battery (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

Error E106 (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I won this camera in a contest to raise money for women's shelter about 8 months ago therefore I have no receipt. At least the $$$ it cost me was put to good use. Couldn't keep up with battery use then suddenly the lens would not retract leaving me with E106 error. I entered this error into my search and "wow", seems to be a big "incurable" problem. I sent email to HP with no response my next camera will NOT be HP.

Battery Monster !!!!! Decent Pictures. (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

Overall I'll have to say run from this camera because it eats batteries at an astonishing rate. Seriously, it will drain a brand new set of batteries in just a few minutes of use. Re-charagables?? Sure, that will work, but plan on carrying about 20 of them with you. I am very satisfied with the picture quality.

Totally Defective--Do NOT buy (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

From the beginning this camera has acted erratically—-it would just shut down in the middle of being used and seemed to "eat batteries". Gradually this bizarre malfunction occured more often with shorter periods of functionality in between until it simply would not stay on longer than 1 to 2 seconds. After 2 months of use it shut down with lens extended and would not turn on with any type of new batteries—-not even the "HP recommended E2 Photo Lithium" ones. It is NOT a "battery issue" as HP kept trying to convince me; the camera functions fine when plugged in to the wall. But how "functional is that"? I guess that's okay if you bought the camera for your kids to play with at home...I've since bought a Kodak. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! I've had it for 3 months and only had to recharge it's battery 3 times. I use it alot. The first week of using the HP 735 I would drain 2 AAs in one day of use. Ridiculous expense that makes this one of the most expensive cameras out there! Especially so when it dies completely and is entirely worthless.

Good Camera, easy to use (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

This is a nice camera, it is easy to use and takes decent pictures. It does have two problems: 1.) it eats batteries like they are dessert, 2.) It is slow to process high density pictures, you can't shoot another picture until the last HD picture is finished processing (10 seconds). Other than that I like the camera a lot.

Just as the Warranty Ended (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I had this camera for 2 yrs when it up and died. The only pic i see for about 2 sec. is E106, then it shuts down. Hp support tells me it will cost me $150 + shipping to repair or replace. That is almost what it cost me to buy. I had a love hate relationship with it. To get any life from Ni-Mh batteries I had to shut LCD off and use flash as little as possible.While I got some really nice outdoor shots, I found taking indoor pic's with the flash always came out dark. When I configured the settings, they had to be reset each time I turned it on. I guess what I really liked most about it was how it looked.

* indoor shoots without great lighting is dark even with flash
* Ghosting on screen when moving pics.. not fluid motion
* takes time for next shot.

2 Camera's now dead (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I bought this camera 1.5 years ago, within 7 days the first camera died. It turned its self off and hadn't retracted the lense. They replaced the camera no problems.

This one has been fine until recently; initially when using the LCD screen with ZOOM, the ZOOM would cause it to shut the camera down with green lines vertically over the lcd screen, eventually it shut down and no longer would power up.

I now have a dead camera on my hands. :(

Not good for a University student with little money to purchase another camera to keep those fond memory's of my 9month old boys first achievements.

love - hate relationship (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

The Love part: I am very satisfied with the pictures and performance. I use it for average photography, not extreme closeups or long range scenes. I use the center quality control (2 stars) and it is fine. I do a lot of editing and enlarging and have had no problems. They tend to be a little dark or too bright, so I edit that, which might be a nuisance to some.
Now comes the Hate. It devours batteries, I really thought it was a serious malfunction, now by reading comments from other owners I guess it is typical. We have the rechargeable, but they don't last any longer than one-use batteries and now don't take a charge at all.
We have good service from hp computer, scanner and printers...but wouldn't take a chance on another hp camera unless I am assured this problem has been solved.

My disposable camera is better!!! (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

This is the worst camera I have ever used!!!
I have only been able to take 7 pictures ever in one year and have gone through 3 sets of batteries. My disposable camera is better quality.....dispose of this one immediately!!!

Great Basic Camera (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

This is a great basic camera. You won't be getting alot of the features that you won't be using that some of the more expensive cameras have. I find this camera very easy to keep in focus. You do have basic control over the shutter speed. I have taken this camera on 3 trips now and have not found a need for any other camera. This has quickly become my favorite camera. I highly recomend this camera to all the basic shutter bugs out there, just like me.

Eats Batteries, Flash Stopped Working (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

This camera is horrible. Once you take a picture, you have to wait about 10 minutes to see if the picture was taken or not. Sometimes you think the picture was taken, but when you look in the picture review it says error, and your picture wasn't taken at all. My flash already stopped working. So every picture is dark. You have to wait forever just for the camera to take a picture, so NO BODY MOVE FOR ABOUT 10 MINUTES. Don't waste your money on it. It's crap.

I love my Hp735 (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I really can honestly say only good things about my HP 735 camera. I love it!

I bought re-chargable batteries that are made for high-use digital cameras, so I have no problems with battery life.

This is my second HP camera, and if it were necessary I would definatly buy another HP.

Does eat batteries, but not that terrible (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I think most reviews that I have read on this camera are very harsh, yes it does drain batteries, but there are ways around this. Buy a set of 4 rechargeable batteries, put 2 in the camera, carry 2 with you, and you should be fine. Do not leave the LCD screen on or yes the battery life will be terrible. I usually use the lowest quality setting and I am pleased with it, typically getting about 70 pictures before having to recharge. The picture quality is terrific in my opinion, in daylight works great from all distances, but if you are taking night shots, you must be close enough to your subject for the flash to help (as with all cameras). I am not completely pleased, due to the fact other cameras tend to get better battery life, and I wouldn't reccomend buying this camera unless it is cheap, but it is certainly effective for what I use it for.

Good Digi Camera except the batteries life :( (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

This was my first Digital Camera it has great outdoor pic's, but it has no battery life i have to carry 8 rechargeable batteries if i want it to last a day :(. OK in other words don't buy this it's kinda cheap but it doent worth it save some and buy a good camera. I'm saving to buy a better one because i'm tired of carrying batteries :(

Don't Buy (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I have owned this camera for a yr and a half and have been very disappointed with it. Spent more on batteries than I did the camera. Use the rechargeable with the dock and still will only take about 7-10 pics before going dead

Worse buy (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

Well, I bought this camera one year ago, and the amounts of problems I got with it is crazy. It doesn't competely eat batteries...the batterie indication is all bad. You open the camera, move around, and after two shots, it shows completely depleted. Also the processing problem, you take a picture, sometime it jammed, even in bright place, you wait like 15 seconds wondering if the picture has been taken. You also got a delay on turning it off, the len goes in, then it can takes 2 mins before it get off. The last problem I got is with transfering the pictures to my computer. The camera auto goes to off after a moment of inactivity, this include the time while transfering, so the camera clsoe half during transfert for larger cards.

I'm gonna try to return it, but sure they'll only repair it. Hope it wont get back with all the problem.

Lens...Lens....Lens (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

HP replaced this camera for me 3 times now for the same issue...lens won't close and the camera shuts down with error message I can't complain about HP support.....only problem is they keep replacing my defective camera with still another defective one.......LENS won't close........and so it goes!

Basically O.K for a while (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

If I don't use the LCD screen when taking shots the battery life seems O.K My problem is the E105 lens position issue. Have down loaded and installed new firm ware and had a full reset still no good but as previous messages have said I have the dock etc but I am out of warranty so do I run and hide or wait around for the phone to ring from HP Support?? Now where is my Pentax K1000 that has travelled around the globe 3 times with me for over 20 years with out so much as a fogged lens!!

Out of focus pictures and batteries (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I have owned my 735 for 1 year and 4 months. Now when a picture is taken it is blurry and unprintable unless you zoom into the picture which can't always be done. It does go through a lot of batteries. This is my 2nd hp and my last.

Oh where have all the batteries gone? (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I was very excited to buy this camera, then I realized how much the batteries get drained, how long it takes for the pictures to process, but I was quite pleased with it still, then I saw another newer Hp camera, used it and realized that this one is a joke. This camera may be Hp's worse camera ever. I think I'm going to sell it for 50bucks and put that money away to save for a better camera

My first digital camera (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

This is the worst camera ever! Bought it as I had to have a digital camera. What a disappointment! Have to take our 35 mm camera with us along with this camera. Can't count on the pictures coming out. Too dark if we print them from our computer, batteries go dead almost immediately and I never am able to use the LCD window! What a wasteful camera. Called HP support and they can upgrade me after I pay 1/2 of the original cost and get the cheapest camera the M307 and return the 735 photosmart. I am not a happy customer. Will never buy an HP digital camera every again!!!Also, photos would not take, said "unsupported file". What a waste of money and time. Don't buy!

Run - don't walk - from this camera (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

Took pictures for about 6 months before screen went black and couldn't take pictures. Spent hours (literally) on phone and on line with HP. Never got the same answer twice from anyone. Everytime I called they kept me hold while they reviewed all the previous calls which was anywhere from 15 - 30 minutes. Was told to wait for mailer for me to return; didn't happen. When I called was told I had to send it in. This scenario re-occured everytime I tried to contact them. They wanted me to "upgrade"and when I wouldn't, they just jerked me around. I feel stuck because I have the dock and printer and don't want to start over. But believe me I will. A $4.95 throwaway camera would be an "upgrade" from their product.

good quality picture, battery drains quickly (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

As mentioned in many reviews, it's battery power drains within few shots, even using 1800mA NI-Mh batteries I have to carry sets of fully charged batt's. I purchased a dual pocket type carrying bag for this cam to purpose of carrying batt's too !!!.when come to picture quality, really it's value for money. But, if connect direct to printer, picture is very dark; better, print through PC using photo editing software. By adjusting brightness, picture quality is excellent. As with many HP products, controls are extremely user friendly, no horrible and difficult to understand GUI's. Yes, processing time is longer as of other low cost digi-cams. Finally, this is not a professional cam. Don't expect more!!!

Regret my choice of cameras! (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I purchased this camera because compared to other digitals, it was in my opinion reasonably priced. The battery longevity is totally outrageous!!! The batteries that were included with camera were not able to withstand but only a few pictures. My camera stops in the middle of a shot with lens open. The actual pictures are not of the best quality, even with the top of the line photo paper that was highly recommended by the sales clerk. I think my choice of cameras was a big mistake.

Very decent for the price! (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

Of course, if you leave the preview screen on, as with any camera, it will eat up the battery. I can take 100-200 pics with no problems with batteries. Good features, easy to use. Pleased!

battery drain (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

Have gotten as few as 2 shots before "battery low" displays. Went back to Staples, told to stop using lcd and zoom. Book said use external charger (didn't help). Tech support said defective camera, swapped for a new one. Wrote to HP CEO, no response after several weeks. Thinking of sending camera back to CEO, tell him to keep it.

Deceiving (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

At first, I loved my camera. It was the perfect, low priced camera and produced high quality pictures. I was very disappointed the first time it broke. I went to turn the camera on, with fully charged batteries, and it didn't. Then it broke a second time. Then a third. Although HP has been good about fixing my camera for free, I would high suggest looking into other models. I would not suggest this camera to anybody. Currently, the camera is acting VERY flaky. The camera will shut off randomly when the lens is still out, zoom in by itself when I'm trying to focus, and takes about 2 minutes after every picture for it to "process". During those two minutes, I can't look through or zoom in on other pictures. This camera has been a complete hassle and a waste of my time. I would have much rather spent another couple hundred to get something much more reliable. I get scared bringing it anywhere important. Do not buy this camera, for your own sake.

Battery Usage so bad can't tell if camera is any good (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

This camera uses up batteries so fast that I haven't been able to get more than 8-10 shots before it goes dead. And it half-stops working as the batteries get low, turning off the lcd display and making you think it has turned itself off. I own several digital cameras and am familiar with them: this one is not worth it at any price.

don't waste your money (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I got this as a Christmas gift last year, had so much trouble with the batteries I thought it must just be me. I tried all sorts of different batteries, and had assumed it was just me. I actually gave up and went back to my old 35mm camera. Now that I've dug it out again it's too late to return. This camera eats batteries so fast it's TOTALLY USELESS. I only get 8 "best quality" (and best quality isn't great either) before they are dead! I think I'll give it to my 11 year old daughter to play with. I'm sorry my husband wasted the money. I'd love to hear of someplace in Canada that will accept this crappy camera for an upgrade!

Terrible battery (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

We have tried every type of battery out there and this camera eats them all. Within taking 10 "best quality" photos batteries are dead. Forget using LCD screen to view anything you'll get about 2 min use out of it before camera is dead. Don't waste your money...spend an extra $50 and get something much better.

battery drain problem cripples the camera (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I can LITERALLY take no more than 15 pics before the batteries are exhausted, and I'm talking about an experiment where I took them as quickly as possible (within 3 minutes) and didn't leave the camera sitting around between shots. The HP solution to my problem? They sent me some new batteries. LISTEN to the other reviewers who talk about battery drain. The camera is useless.

My first digital camera (anonymous — 07/18/2006)
As long as you are taking outdoor daylight pictures, this camera is great. Indoor pictures are horrible and this camera eats batteries. Rechargeable batteries don't even help. I could only take about 5 pictures before replacing the batteries. Luckily I bought a store warranty when I purchase this camera which allows me to exchange it if I'm not happy with it for any reason. Needless to say, I'm shopping.

this camera will suck the life out of your AA batteries in seconds!! (anonymous — 07/18/2006)
Inconsistent in how it captures images due to the extremely temperamental and inaccurate self-adjustment in various lighting conditions. Very difficult to get a very good, crisp image... especially when using the white balance settings for tungsten lighting. Overall, okay if you need a simple "point & shoot" to take with you on vacation or something casual... it very much ##### for any type of web/ graphics use. Should you decide to get a 735, DEFINITELY upgrade w/ more memory... oh, and this camera will suck the life out of your AA batteries in seconds!!!
