Exquisite litte gem
15 September 2007
Summary: I own a 20D which I absolutely love and was looking for a good digital point and shoot to replace my current S400. My two major candidates were the SD550 and the S70. If you follow the photography boards at all you realize that this is a fairly common dilemma - the SD550 vs the S70.
Summary: I got this one for 350+ after all the rebates and promotions. After carefully looking at all others in the same range, I had shortlisted it down to 2. The Casio Exilim z750 and this one. I was also considering the SD500 or the SD450 but they had either a smaller LCD or no viewfinder.
Summary: I ordered the Canon SD550 right before my vacation and I am sooo happy with my purchase! It is my first digital camera, and although I am your avg point and shoot tourist, I wanted the option of being able to take nice pics using special features.
Summary: We bought this to replace our Canon PowerShot G2, which basically became useless after the LCD died one day. This is everything the G2 wasn't. It is small but sturdy, has a quick auto focus, takes excellent photos quickly, and is so much easier to use.
Summary: The majority of the other reviews have hit it spot on. This camera is easy to use and takes a great picture under almost every condition. It's fast, and light and very portable. There some drawbacks though. The fact that the camera doesn't come with any sort of case is a crime.
Summary: If you're looking for a "can't miss" purchase for point-and-shoot digital photography, this is pretty much it. Picture quality, even with flash, is spot on. Ease of use is great as long as you don't get mired down in all of the extra features it has.
Summary: I've reluctantly joined the digital world for still shots, but I'm thoroughly pleased with my purchase. I've just begun to explore its possibilities, but so far it seems user friendly. The price, convenience and service have been excellent.
Summary: Okay, for my first review on Amazon, I give the Canon SD550 5 full stars. After reading about and reviewing various digital cameras for months, I waited for the price of the SD550 to drop below $300 and bought it about 3 months ago.
Summary: This is my second purchase from Canon (also through amazon) and I am very happy once again. I bought this as my second travel camera. I bought a S60 a few years back but it ended up being too bulky for travelling. The SD550 is the best camera you can get for the money.
