5 Reasons For

Fairly Large Screen Size

Across all the digital cameras that have been available for more than two years the screen sizes range from 1" to 4.8". The HP P550 has a fairly large screen size (3 inches) compared to most of the other cameras of a comparable spec and age to the P550.

Alternative 3" screen digital cameras currently available that you might also want to look at include because of it's better review score, the Sony DSC-WX300, the Canon IXUS 125 HS, or the Nikon Coolpix P500.

If you are looking for a camera with a larger screen size then you might also want to look at the Nikon Coolpix P520 (3.2"), or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX77 (3.5") which also has a higher rating.

Fairly Big Digital Zoom

Across all the digital cameras that have been on the market for more than two years the digital zooms range from 1x to 810x. With a digital zoom of 5 times zoom factor, the HP P550 has one of the bigger digital zooms amongst digital cameras of this age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 5x digital zoom cameras currently available including the Samsung MV900F which has better reviews.

If this digital camera digital zoom is too small for you then you might want to look at the A1455 (5.7x), or the J1455 (5.7x) both from GE which is also higher rated.

If you would prefer a camera with a bigger optical zoom then you might want to look at the Samsung WB150 (18x and higher rated).

We compared this digital camera to all the other cameras with an image stabiliser and we think because of it's better review score, the Fujifilm FinePix X10, and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS40 is also worth considering.
