Fine for a lower end Canon point and shoot - poor image quality
21 June 2011
Summary: Pros: - 2 AA powers this - Inexpensive - Runs CHDK well Cons - Image quality not up to what I am looking for - Manual control not sufficient (CHDK can improve this a little) This is a fine lower end Canon point and shoot camera. It works well for what it is but if you want any amount of manual control, this is not the camera for you. I bought this to play with CHDK.
Summary: I'm going to write a positive review of this camera, but you should know that I ended up returning it to Amazon because it didn't meet my specific needs. I was looking for a high quality, inexpensive point and shoot digital camera when I bought this item. The reasons I returned it had nothing to do with the quality of its prints. Let me make sure I say this: they were outstanding. I loved the ease at which the A550 makes beautiful pictures.
Summary: I have conflicting emotions about my Canon A550, hence my 3-star rating. I received it as a gift about 3 years ago from someone who had done considerable research on digital cameras. Initially, I loved it: the photo-quality was fantastic, and it produced clearer and brighter images than did an older Canon we had around the house. My photos have received several compliments for their quality. The video quality is also great, and I used it frequently.
Summary: Yo tb tengo esta camara, pero tengo un problema , me consume demasiada energia , las pilas me duran nada (asi le ponga duracell), cuando coloco unas nuevas me sigue saliendo que las pilas estan bajas , y solo puedo tomar pocas fotos pq consume demasiado rapido, de hecho hasta cuando dejo de tomar lo apago , pero igual , de repente es la cámara no lo se.
