Purchased several years ago as a reconditioned camera. GREAT to put in your jacket pocket, works well in subdued light if you use the correction feature in the software. Also takes excellent pictures IF you use the highest resolution, gets grainy if you try to blow-up from low resolution. Recommended for no larger than 4X6 or 640X480 Problems: Sent it back once (wouldn't power on). Been using ever since, no problems after Epson fixed it for free.

It was often taken when a Nikon 900 I had would get left behind while the Epson 550 was stuffed in the pocket. (The Nikon, despite gentle treatment, died anyway. I initially rated features as "Poor," but then thought about the voice annotation, pocketability, and great battery life. Wish it had flash and a ...
