Nikon Coolpix S550 review
Mar 16, 2009

Got it yesterday as a b-day present for my sister.
Chose Nikon because already have Canon EOS D20 and Panasonic DMC FZ30. This is our first ultra compact experience. Design is great, slick and comfortable. I was amassed by simplicity and comfort of use. The menu is pleasant for an eye and the brain in the same time.
30 pictures i took in a day light were fine but .....

Problems:

but ... when the camera locking on target it makes annoying clicks. May be i am spoiled but i didn't like it.
ISO higher then 200 gives horrible noise.
NEVER use automatic ISO indoors!!!! Camera cranks it all the way up to the end and pictures come out as if they were taken with a mobile phone.
Bottom line - i went back to the store and switched it with CanonSD1100is. It looks ugly and not as "user friendly" as Nikon BUT THE IMAGE QUALITY !!! OH MY..
You can't compare ! And Canon is faster too !
