The H55 has been replaced by the H70, a similar camera that at this point in time, tends to cost less than the H55. If you can find the H55 for a decent price, go for it. It's a modest travel zoom -- a point-and-shoot with a big lens, basically -- with enough features to stay entertaining and decent image quality. They're a dime a dozen, but Sony does them fairly well. Still, the H70 is a better deal at this point.
