The Good Very well designed; the best start-up time in its class; quick shot-to-shot performance; novel fast frame-rate movie mode.

The Bad More frequent than usual purple fringing; longish flash shot-to-shot times.

The Bottom Line The Canon PowerShot SD550 is a very well-designed, 7-megapixel snapshot camera. Just don't look for advanced controls.

For an ultracompact camera, the SD550 produced some very sharp shots (top), as you can tell from the detail above (bottom).
