Summary: I bought this to replace one just like it that failed. This one did as well. Ugh... Quality control could be better. But, almost everyone just uses the camera built in to their smartphones these days, so I suppose this is redundant.
Summary: I still have this camera. Tough camera, still works almost like it did when I got it. Just now starting to die, taking longer to come on etc. I got it at Costco as part of a package ages ago. About $120 I think. That being said, the 12 MP is slightly deceptive TBH. The indoor photos are worse than rubbish. Everything is grainy, even in moderate light. In full natural light, a lot better... but still not that good. Motion photo is terrible, even on blur function.
Summary: I have 2 Corgi's that love to run and chase each other and play but the camera is so slow that the girls are out of the picture before I can snap it...and it wasn't a cheap camera when I bought it 3 years ago.
Great pictures in good light but having charging issues now
Dissapointed in SF, Amazon

Summary: Camera takes good pictures in light. Its weakness is in low light where the pictures are not good. After owning this camera for a couple of years it has developed charging issues and is very temperamental about charging. Otherwise I have been happy with the camera.
Excerpt: It's a decent enough camera. It was less than $100 so for that price I can't complain too much. For some reason the rechargable battery keeps coming lose so I have to adjust it occasionally. The pictures are decent. It's a bit slow between photos, which is hard because I mostly just take pictures of my kids. It's easy to upload to your computer and I like that you can tag all the pictures to make it easie to find them.
Excerpt: Kodak's 550 digital is a really good camera for the person who wants good photos at a good price. For the novice or the people from the instamatic days, this is the kind of camera most people who take photos for keeping those memories alive. In my camera, I have taken pictures of my grandson Noah, form birth up till now and he will be 4 in December. It's great to see him growiing from frame to frame.. I recommend it highly.
