Summary: I bought it because I have grandbabies and I was looking for a good camera. I went out on the internet and searched for a good camera, so many said that this kind was a great starter. I love it, it was well kept up and I'm taking lots and lots of pictures of my 2 grandbabies. One is 5 and the other is 6 weeks old.
I love the pictures and the video is clear and the sound is good

Excerpt: I use this camera a lot. It has the best battery life on any digital camera I have ever used. I use the display exclusively and never use the viewfinder and I am only on my third set of batteries in 5 months. I take a lot of flash pictures. The color in the pictures is really great. It is a simple camera to operate. I recommend it to everyone.
Excerpt: Easy to use, produces great pictures, controls are simple. I have four dogs and it gets great shots of them running with little to no distortion of the photo. It's a real pleasure to take this on vacation because I can be confident that the pictures I take will be great. This is my second digital camera and provides a lot better quality picture. Software that comes with the camera makes it simple to download photos on to your computer and categorize them.
Excerpt: I received this Canon camera as a christmas gift last year and I love it!!! I have a 2 year old and it takes great pictures of her running, jumping, and every other time she won't sit still. I have never had a problem or taken a bad picture with it. The photo quality is just absolutley amazing! The only bad part is that it won't even turn on with cheap batteries, it likes energizer the best. But they last a good while.
Excerpt: My Canon Powershot A550 is one of the better digital cameras on the market, This is the second Powershot I've had and like it better than other brands I've used. One of the nicest things about using the Canon this model you use rechargeable batteries anywhere, you aren't limited to the battery packs like the first Powershot G-2 that were very expensive. Presently I'm photographing the construction on the bridge on RT.441 over Swatara Creek in Middletown.
Compact, Quick, Excellent Photos, Definitely would buy again

Excerpt: I reviewed many cameras before making my purchase about two years ago. I am a pet groomer and I wanted a camera that had quickness in turning on and taking a photo. Pets don't have a "stay there" pose. So, that was most important to me in buying this camera. In purchasing it, I found that it did in fact have a quick response time in grabbing it and turning it on and clicking for a photo. I also found that the type of memory card was easy to use at digital printing...
Excerpt: The Canon Power Shot A550 is one of the best available digital cameras on the market. What makes this one of the best is it's size, it's ease of use, and the great shots it takes! I just keep it in my purse on weekend getaways and I forget it's there. It's very light and compact and is ready to use at a moment's notice. I received the camera as a fabulous wedding shower gift and I put it to use immediately!
Excerpt: I purchased this camera for my daughter five years ago to take on a school field trip and was attracted to it becomes how inexpensive it was. It is a simple 7.1 megapixel camera that does the job and is a nice size. Sure the photos or videos are not so high def that it looks that you are there but if you want to capture the very memorable moments in your life through photo or video than the PowerShot A550 is the camera that can do it.
Powershot can turn an amateur photographer to a pro.

Excerpt: I have owned two Canon Powershot digital Cameras. The first one I owned I broke by accident. After that I couldn't live without my Canon so I ran out and bought the newer version. This is the most user friendly camera I have ever used. It takes awesome photos and has a lot of easy to use extra features. I mostly use my camera for taking pictures of my family.Its so easy to just turn the dial on top of the camera to set the special settings.
