Trust the 550D, sure can!
I bought this camera as a replacement for one that I flooded in an underwater housing some months ago, although I didn't ruin the camera, I thought a spare would be feasible. A great camera, easy to use and rewards you with good quality shots. I use mine almost exclusively as an underwater camera, and now with the spare I can also take the above water opportunities when they arise without having to undo the housing. I had thought about an upgrade, but the 550D is a great camera, so I bought a better lense with the savings, I call that a win win situation Cheers Andrew
If you are thinking about a new camera Canon DSLR 550 is the one for you
Canon have always been my first choice. I previously used a Canon film SLR and had 2 lens for it that could also be used on a Canon DSLR . I read a writeup on Canon DSLR 550 camera and because of the many options that this model was capable of I decided to go searching. I finally found what I was looking for on eBay , brand new body only so I went ahead and purchased it.When I received the camera I set it up and started experimenting . It was something special and I would recomend this model to anyone. Distant , closeup and video features are fantastic , I just wish I was able to spend more time with camera in it's case and on my shoulder.
Great easy to use camera with fantastic shots.
This is my second DSLR and took it away to Japan. So easy to use, took some amazing photos. Love my camera and looking forward to taking more shots with it soon.
I LOVE THIS CAMERA! It is so easy to use and the picture quality is fantastic and great value for money!
