A terrific camera that easily produces great pics at a low price
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I had this camera for several years and loved it! I dropped it quite a few times and it held up very well. Eventually I used it at summer camp and ran over it with a golf cart. However, I liked it so much that I bought another Canon. The pictures that the camera produced were excellent. I really enjoyed this camera. It was given to me as a gift so I am not totally sure of the price. However, it had to be fairly resonable.
very easy to use and produces high quality pictures

Excerpt: I had never used a digital camera but in approximately one hour from the time the box was opened photos were uploaded to computer. Myself and other family members have all produced very high quality pictures. We have taken full advantage by e-mailing to family and friends.
Excerpt: I have had this camera for several months and now I wonder why I never went to digital before. It is easy to focus and shoot. I love getting the pictures developed. You can lighten the picture and zoom in on it while developing which I could never do with the old 35 mm cameras. It is light and fits in my purse so I am always ready to shoot pictures. If this is your first digital camera it is a good one to start with.
Excerpt: This is a small, easy to use camera. It has many tools on it to use for how ever you need to take that picture. The manual is a good thing to hang on to and READ. You can simply take pictures with this camera, but after reading the manual, you realize that you have purchased a lot more than you thought of in a camera. Good for beginners and pros
Excerpt: The Canon A550 is a great camera for still shots but not so good at comedy shots where you try to catch the subject unaware. It does come with great software for removing red-eye and catagorizing your photo collection. The battery life is OK and the viewfinder is excellent.
Excerpt: We use the Canon Powershot camera at work and it seemed pretty nice, so I bought one for personal use. Outdoor photos are always perfect. Flash photos indoor are pretty good, but redeye is common. It's awfully fast and shutter lag is non-existent, very nice for a lower end 7mp camera. I'd consider stepping up to a model with pop-up flash if most of your photos will be of people (to minimize red eye), otherwise, it's a great unit especially given the entry price.
Excerpt: I am not an expert photographer, nor do I understand f stop, aperture, or all the other terms of fine photography. However, when I became a grandmother a few years ago I took so many bad pictures of my new grandson that I realized I needed to update the 35 mm film camera I had, so after some research I lucked up on a Canon Powershot A550 digital camera. I have been very pleased with its quality, as well as its durability.
Excerpt: I was in New Mexico over the summer and had taken my husband camera on the trip which worked fine, until I dropped it and had to replace it right away. I went to a local office supply store and they had one Canon Powershot camera left. After careful study about this one with the salesman, I bought it. I loaded the memory card from the old camera right into the new one and was off taking pictures. The zoom is great, but can be somewhat fuzzy pictures.
