Canon digital cameras have typically performed well in this test, so we had high expectations for the A550. We ran the Canon A550 through the same regimen as all other digital cameras that come through our lab and review process. Using optimal studio lighting, we photographed the GretagMacbeth color chart at ISO 80.
After some experimentation, the picture with the most realistic colors came from a shot using a -1 exposure compensation setting in spot metering mode.
