The Canon PowerShot A550 is part of Canon's mid-range, affordable line, picking up where the popular A530 and A540 left off while introducing a powerful 7.1 megapixel sensor. This is about as easy as photography can get, though if you're a real power user or interested in the potential for growth, it'll be hard to take the training wheels off of this model. There are manual exposure settings, but there's greater versatility in a camera like the Canon A640. This camera was introduced over two years ago, and it's becoming difficult to find. It's still a great little camera, but we recommend that you buy a newer model. Try the SD780.
