13 July 2008
  • Conclusion: Canon's A series PowerShots were originally designed as 'entry level' cameras but since have quite clearly moved out of their original market segment. A series PowerShots have improved with each generation and - thanks to the inclusion of comprehensive manual controls and technologies such as the new DIGIC III imaging processor and image stabilization - have become a viable weapon of choice not only for beginners but also the more advanced photographer with limited...
  • Pros: Good resolution, Clean and detailed results across the frame and zoom range, Effective image stabilization, Fast, reliable focus, Reliable exposure and white balance and accurate color, Clear and understandable menu and control layout, Good feature set, Good range of in-camera tonal and color adjustments, Little purple fringing, Big, fairly bright (though low res) screen, Good balance of noise reduction and detail retention at higher ISO settings, Excellent movie qual...
  • Cons: Occasional highlight clipping, Combined card / battery compartment can make changing cards without losing the batteries fiddly, Slow flash recycling (especially when batteries are weak), Low screen resolution, Images a bit soft viewed at 100% - benefit from a little sharpening, ISO 800 and above only suitable for emergency use, Battery Life not brilliant (it's useful to always carry a spare set of batteries)

Canon PowerShot A570 IS Digital Camera Review

PhotoAxe
18 April 2008
  • Excerpt: This Canon A model stands out from the A series of digital cameras because of the image stabilization. No other camera from this series has it. Otherwise, manual controls, optical viewfinder, robust, solid design not fitting small pockets and rather resembling the buttons and controls of a SLR, good performance represented by low noise (except very high ISO), sharpness, vivid colors, slight warm white balance.

  • Conclusion: Canon PowerShot A570 Review Conclusion Canon can congratulate itself with the PowerShot A-series cameras. For the past few years cameras in this class have been extremely popular, because of their versatile qualities. It's amazing to see that the Canon PowerShot A570 IS has more to offer in terms of functionality than its competition, or even cameras in a more expensive class. This is remarkable and probably explains the PowerShot A-concept success story.

  • Excerpt: If you managed to catch the Canon A560 review I did a couple of weeks back, you'd notice me mentioning that the camera seemed so incomplete without image stabilization. Now with the A570IS in my grasp featuring everything that the A560 had to offer, along with the much needed optical image stabilization, let's see how well that works out. Build A little bulky but elegant is what I would label the A570IS as.

  • Excerpt: Lately I've been carrying around a lot of different compact, pocket and point & shoot digital cameras. We've been reviewing these things steadily over the past two years, focused primarily on Nikon. It's now Canon's turn and we're going to see just how well this powerful and respected digital imaging company is doing in the digital photography rodeo.
  • Pros: Under a wide range of what are considered normal outdoor shooting situations (sunset, sunrise, bright sunlight throughout the day, overcast and so on, the Canon PowerShot A570 IS performs like a champ. While I carp and whine about visible digital noise in low light images taken above 400 ISO, the fact remains that I am being excessively picky. The vast majority of photos are taken at ISO 200 or less. Photos taken with the A570 IS look just great, suitable for framing ...
