  • Conclusion: The Canon PowerShot A580 is a fine entry-level point-and-shooter, but for $30 more you can get the nearly identical A590 IS, which adds image stabilization and manual controls.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, even for an entry-level camera. Face detection.
  • Cons: Fewer features than the $179.99 PowerShot A590 IS. Bulky, boring design.
