The 100 looks nifty. Sound input appears to be mono, but I do have to appreciate the f/2.8 lens, even if it drops SHARPLY to nearly f/8 at the end of the zoom range. Call me a sucker for gimmicks but the analog dials to show how much juice is in the tank is a novel touch.

The 550 looks like little more than a 500 with a few more megapixels squashed onto the same sensor and a slightly larger screen. If only Samsung had put this effort into getting the HZ10W cousin of the 500 into US Stores instead of this, they'd have my money right now! :blah:

You might be right about that - I did notice the multiple "vents" on the top, but thought the one was a braille strip to help the sight impaired find the power button! :lol:
