Summary: bought this camera on ThanksGiving day while with the family.Needed one my other one died. Other than signs of wear which was noted before purchase, was delivered in a few days in its original box, it meets all my needs and it has a rechargable battery. I love it. always had good results with Ebay.
Summary: Purchased this used SD500 camera for my 12 year old daughter because the prices for a "quality" portable one-time-use camera is high~way robbery! I just spent $16.99 for a 24 count flash portable camera for her overnight bible retreat trip and was not pleased with the quality of the photos which cost an add'l 8 bucks to process - - - REALLY?!?!?!?!?!? I am happy with my purchase (gently used with software, battery & recharger etc.) for $80 bucks (shipping free).
Summary: I have the SD850 and bought this for my wife. It's a handy little point and shoot, with all that that implies. Not a professional-quality camera, and there aren't that many options. But it takes a good picture in good light, and not such a bad shot in lesser light. Like all the cameras in this series, it has pretty quick button response (takes a picture while the event is still happening, unlike some...).
Summary: I purchased this camera a little over a year ago. It is a solid and pretty well-built camera, compared to a CanonA530 that I also own. The SD500 is more expensive and of higher quality than the A530, as would be expected. The A530 is actually lighter than the SD500, although bulkier. PROS: The pictures taken by the SD500 are of excellent quality, and there are options to change the quality and size of the pictures taken to maximize memory card space. Macro is excellent.
Summary: I'm by no means an expert! This is the first digital I have owned. It took me a long time because I was so used to my film camera. But I searched long and hard to find what I thought I wanted. And so far I am not disappointed. At first the size threw me because everyone else had a bigger camera and I felt it would be hard to handle to take good pics. But that's not the case. I like the feel, the size...I like to be able to throw it in my purse..
Summary: The Canon SD500 and Canon SD550 are both very capable digital cameras. While they are similar in many respects, the list price is not one. With the SD500's list price at $499.99 and the SD550's at $549.99, you might wonder what you are getting on the SD550 for that extra fifty dollars. Hopefully this comparison will help you find out. The Similarities begin with the image processor. Both cameras utilize the DIGIC II image processor.
Canon Powershot works well but directions difficult

Summary: The camera itself is small, but the buttons are spaced so that your fingers can find them. The only problem I find is that the directions are difficult to comprehend and come in several different forms - booklet, foldout, etc. The manufacturers assume a level of knowledge before you buy the camera that might not be true of every user.
