Joan, Burton on Trent Point & shoot

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I still need more time to get used to the many features on this camera, up to now we are really impressed with the quality of the images especially of our young grandchildren, who hardly ever keep still , they look so proffessional. Also the quality of the video taken with the camera is a real bonus, crystal clear and quality I would expect froma much higher spec camera than this one, Our friends are also very impressed, we have just been to Northumberland for a long weekend and the quality of our pictures of the countryside, views from our hotel bedroom window and a hot air ballooon we saw are just really impressive, colours and definition is perfect.
Bad points:
Not enough time to get to grips with all this camera has to offer.

A Touch Screen That Gives Clear Feedback

What could be more useful than seeing every detail in brilliant 1,152K High Resolution before you take your first shot? How about the ST550’s vibration and audio feedback technology that reacts to your touch? After all, you don’t want any of life’s special moments to pass you by. And with the ST550’s super clear 800 × 480 display and innovative Haptic sensor technology, your camera will let you know what you’re doing with every click, swish and hum of the controls.

See deeper, go wider, get closer with the ST550

Have it all, literally, with the ST550. From its all inclusive 27mm Schneider-KREUZNACH wide angle lens to its up close and personal 4.6X optical zoom, you’ll capture more fun out of every moment and relive each detail with artistic depth and perspective, and with absolute ease. Plus, with a healthy 12.2 mega pixels of superb clarity, the ST550 delivers sharper detail from every birthday cake, natural wonder, or front row seat view than you ever thought possible. Get the most out of life with the ST550.

Tilt it, gesture with it, and you’ll control it

Tilt it to one side, and the ST550’s Smart Gesture UI will start the perfect slide show without a single touch! With the ST550’s built-in Acceleration Sensor, your gestures work as your commands. Manage camera functions, rotate or delete photos, create special slide shows and more…all without lifting a finger.

Just what you had in mind

You see the image you want in your head. You point the ST550. And Smart Auto sees it too. This scene recognition technology actually chooses from 16 different settings ranging from landscape to portrait automatically.
Then adjusts for the perfect shot. Whether it’s catching your friends on a night on the town or a waterfall off a mountain. What you get is exactly what you had in mind. Plus all the credit.

It knows you, and only gets your best side

The ST550 isn’t just smart in design. With its Smart Face recognition technology, the ST550 creates brilliance with every snap. And keeps it that way. By knowing up to 20 of your friends and family, it automatically focuses on them first, making sure the most important subjects are always in crystal clarity. And since the ST550 never forgets a face, you can also browse more efficiently by the people you’ve registered.

HD quality video. Now in a compact camera

If you prefer still shots to movies but want to leave your options open (and leave your camcorder at home) the ST550 is right for you. You’ll get 720p HD quality video at 30 frames per second. And a recording time that’s 4X longer than MJPEG video. You even can use the 4.6X Zoom to get up close and vividly personal. And when things get dicey, you can even pause your recording. You’ll give up nothing, except carrying around that extra camera.
