lovely camera except that Canon goes cheap on key parts

Summary: The tiny plastic latch for the card/battery compartment broke almost immediately, making the camera useless. I earlier had a Model S400 Digital Elph: the plastic lid-latch to the card compartment, quite a different part design altogether, broke also. $46.75 to fix it: part $1.75, labor $45. At least I could black-tape THAT lid until it was repaired, not so the SD550. No more Digital Elves for me until Canon gets on top of this design/material flaw. Too bad.
