Should I go with the 450 or the 550 or another camera?

I have been looking around since the last month, and Im not decided yet!

Also looked at Sony W7.. But my wife and I seem o prefer the Canon....

If the slightly larger ( just 7mm wider) sizeand price insn't an an issue, the SD 550 wins hands down.

Both cameras are awesome, but the 550 has better perfomance, and a 1/1.8CCD sensor.

I'm ecstatic with an SD 450.

Made the choice over Sony when I realized the cost of their fast speed cards. Bought 2 fast SD cards for the cost of one Sony card. Now, with two gig's, I take hundreds of pictures, 20,30,40 small 30-second and one minute videos. Not video camera quality but right out of your pocket? Priceless moments get captured much more often.

If you can afford the extra, go with more camera in the 550

Thankyou for your answser.My friend advised me to get the CASIO EXILIM -EX-Z750,what do you think. Having a hard time deciding. Everyone has an opinion! Are the manual controls and image stabilization a good reason to get the CASIO,and if so why get the CANON? I like the CANON'S. Currently have a CANON Rebel film camera and am making the jump to digital. Please help!P.S.-What printer do you recomend? Was considering the EPSON R340 or the CANON IP6600D.Friend recomends the KONICA MINOLTA magicolor 2430DL laser printer.
