The optio 555 is junk. I have had two and, on both, the lens freezes in the out position when the power is turned off. Even on a fully recharged battery. Not all the time but enough to make me afraid of the longevitiy of this camera. Yes the pictures taken indoor are dim and must be retouched. The concept of a small camera with a 5x optical zoom is a good one but the 555 has serious quality problems. I am switching to the new Canon S1 or the Olympus C 775 (both with 10x optical zoom).
