    Is there a forum or user's group for the Olympus D550? This is my first
    digital camera, got it from a pawn shop north of Toronto, lens/picture
    quality is excellent. Just want to explore it further with fellow owners.

    Your camera probably has much more in common with other point-n-shoots
    than you think. I have an Oly C-700 of similar vintage to your D-550.
    Other than having a particular configuration of controls and menus, it
    is just a camera. The owners manual (which you should be able to
    download, if the pawn shop didn't have it) will tell you what your
    camera can do. The D-550 has limited control over exposure and depth
    of field, which means you have less things to worry about.

    Go out and take pictures. Perhaps after you become frustrated with the
    D-550's limitations you'll be back here in a year ranting about how only
    a dSLR can do what you want. :)

    Thanks Paul for your prompt reply. I have the full manual, and am trying out
    the functions as I check out the manual. I always believe in thoroughly
    learning a camera before using it. Digital requires a greater learning curve
    than film. I am, will always be a film shooter for professional work, just
    using the D550 as an extra tool. I especially like the larger, thicker, size
    of the D550 as I only use the optical viewfinder, feels more like 35mm and
    being able to set the camera to a 3:2 ratio for genuine 4x6, 8x12 prints.
    The lens quality appears excellent so I am going to see how far I can push
    this camera. Perhaps we'll chat again. All the best, Ken Kline.
