4 Reasons For

Quite Large Display Diagonal

At 3 inches, the HP P550 has a fairly large display diagonal compared to most of the other digital cameras of a similar type and age to the P550. Compact cameras that are a comparable age to the P550 have display diagonals of between 1" and 4.8", and the average display diagonal is 2.8".

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3" screen digital cameras currently available including because of it's better review score, the Fujifilm F800EXR[plb_1518759_price].

Digital cameras with a larger display diagonal that might also be worth looking at include the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX77[plb_1836487_price] (3.5"), or the Samsung Galaxy Camera EK-GC110[plb_2083466_price] (4.8") which also has a higher rating.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative digital cameras with an image stabilizer currently available including because of it's better review score, the Fujifilm X10[plb_1150_price], or the SeaLife DC1400 Pro Duo[plb_1829795_price].

If you are looking for a bigger optical zoom then you might want to consider the Nikon 610[plb_1714212_price] (14x), the Kodak Pixpro FZ151[plb_2596074_price] (15x), or the GE G100[plb_1861772_price] (15x).

Average Megapixel

With a megapixel of 16 megapixels, the HP P550 has a fairly standard megapixel compared to most of the other digital cameras that have been around for around the same time as the P550.

We compared all the other 16MP digital cameras to this digital camera and we think the Powershot A3500 IS[pl_1476759_price], and the A810[pl_408150_price] both from Canon which has better reviews is also worth considering.
