Anybody using such cameras? I'm still thinking which one to buy. Actually it's not for me but for my friend. She'll be using it for some microscopic image. So I need to know which is better when it comes to macro mode. Canon A550 or Sony S650? This cameras are all new models but I hope some techie here will drop some comments about the product.Thanks in advance!

I haven't used any of the two. But I would recommend the Canon model. In my experience with a Canon S3Is I have no problems whatsoever, it takes great photos and videos too

Thanks a lot for the picture. It seems canon is still the best when it comes to digital cameras. And I think canon is a bit cheaper than sony. So I think I might choose canon. But i still have time to think about it.

The Canon A550 is photography's best buy as of February 2007. For $199.99 (list price) you get a camera capable of making excellent photos. It's got an excellent, sharp 4x optical zoom and 7.1 Megapixels, far more than enough for making great prints at least 12 x 18" (30 x 40 cm). Sony S650 is no ordinary entry-level camera—and with incredible 7.2 megapixel resolution, 3X optical zoom lens, high ISO 1000 sensitivity for low-light shooting and Stamina® battery power for up to 460 shots1, the DSC-S650 Cyber-shot® digital camera is perfect for any occasion. A bright 2.0"2 LCD screen makes it easy to set up shots and check results. 24MB3 internal memory lets you shoot without a flash memory card or load optional Memory Stick Duo™ media in the built-in slot.
