when david dreams: #canon_powershot_a550 I love this camera. When my Vivitar Vivicam 3710 died I was looking for a new 'digital holga' or a cheap P&S that I could take everywhere to show my buddies what a 'cheap' digital camera could do. I found this Canon PowerShot and was so blown away by it that I am now keeping a weekly journal and gallery about my A550 for everyone to see.
