For more details you can open up the advanced manual, which should answer any question you might have. Playback Mode The PowerShot S3 has the same, excellent playback mode as seen on other Canon cameras. Speaking of white balance, while Auto wasn’t perfect with our indoor test target, it was darn close. As is often the case, Manual white balance was better. The SD550 uses the same NB-3L lithium-ion rechargeable battery as its predecessor. More options will only confuse and invite error. The SD550 has the same new style menu system as the other cameras in the SD series.
The PowerShot SD550 looks exactly like the SD500, save for its slightly different body color. Since it was a problem with some SD500’s, I listened for any «whine» in the sound track of movies recorded on the SD550. In a totally silent room there is a bit of a whine, which I suppose could irritate some people. About the only shooting mode that seemed to be missing was a stitch-assist mode to help in creating panoramic photographs, a feature that was available on the PowerShot A530. Face Detection, available on the A570 IS, is not available here either.
Nothing to see here. On the other side of the camera you’ll find the I/O ports, which are kept under a plastic cover.
