Summary: This is my first Cannon Camera and I am very impressed. I am an amateur when it comes to taking pictures, but this Cannon makes me look like a pro. My favorite detail is the viewfinder that is also included along with the viewing screen. For those of us old timers who are used to utilizing a viewfinder this makes using this camera twice as fun.
Summary: Very cool camera. The fact that it takes AA batteries is the best. With rechargeable AA batteries you can always have some ready. The macro settings are excellent. All and all you will not get this great of shots with most point and shoot cameras so it is a great investment.
Summary: I purchased this camera for my sweet mom for Christmas 2012 because her older one was not working so well anymore. She was so surprised and excited when she opened it Christmas morning! Thank you so much. Awesome camera!
Summary: Ever have that terrible experience with cameras? Well for me, it's the video experiences the most. Do not buy this camera if you're wanting to upload videos because it'll cost ya! Unless you are smart, loves experimenting on technology, and handles electronics well... don't buy this!
Summary: This A580 was purchased for my 8 year old grandson who will find it easy to use and dependable. Among its best features are AA batteries, not some proprietary & costly battery designed for and (usually) only available from the manufacturer at a high price - AA's are available everywhere, and the A580 only takes 2.
Summary: Very nice camera - have another one just like it which has performed very well. I used this camera every day, have dropped it and yet it still performs well. Would recommend this item for everyday use and family photos.
