I "accidently" bought both the SD450 (~$220) and the SD550 (~$300). Is the SD550 significanlty better than the SD450 to warrant a $80 price difference?

I have two friends, one has the 450, the other the 550. When I ask my friend who spent $100 more for the 550 what's the largest print he's ever made with his 7MP camera, he told me he never print pictures, he just keeps them in his PC and usually takes pictures at 3MP size....

So my question to you is, are you planning on making prints much larger than 30 x 20 inch? If not, then go with the 450.

For my money, I'd actually get the $170 A520. I hate really tiny cameras.

Good Luck!

I'm not planning to ever print 30-20inch photos. But how does the quality compare at the same resolution between the two cameras?

You would not see the difference between them until the prints got up to around 11" X 14". Save the money.
