Mark-

I don't own a Kodak V-550. However, most folks are very enthusiastic about the camera and I have read very few complaints indeed about battery life.

please let us know on the Kodak forum how you enjoy it. people seem to love the colors right out of the camera--no need for post processing on the computer.

Kodak pictures tend to be more color-saturated because Kodak has apparently decided that people like them better that way. To me, they look unnatural. Fuji digicams have a much more life-like color, in my opinion.

I'm kodak V550 user, for about 2 months now, generally ok, but hv few thing you shd know:
cons:
1. Shorter battery life (to solve this I buy additional batt)
2. Don't hv image stabilizer (abit of problem if in low light situation)

Pros:
1. Big and clear LCD 2.5 inches
2. Hv optical view finder
3. Aspect ratio 3:2
4. Can zoom during video taking
5. High quality video
6. Hv date stamp (occasionally maybe useful)

But if I given an option to buy again I may want to try Panasonic FX9 :roll:
