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!
Excerpt: I received this camera as a gift, approximately April of 2008. I'm still impressed that, despite its age (at least for a technology item), its features still compete well with new models. Indeed, this camera has quite a few features, especially for the price, and thus can be as hard or as easy to use as you want it to be.

Excerpt: Since the pictures you take are of some of the most important happenings in your life, your camera can make or break an event and the memories of the happening. I own the little Canon- Powershot A580 digital Camera, and have owned it for several years, and i couldn't be happier. I am strictly of the point and shoot variety and this Canon-Powershot A580 Digital Camera lets me do just that.
Excerpt: I absolutely love my Canon PowerShot A580 Digital Camera! It has been with me through all of my great life moments thus far including the births of my two beautiful children. I love all the different picture settings. I can take pictures at night outside and still have the photo turn out just as good as inside with the flash on. Works wonderfully. I also love that the batteries are replaceable and I don't need to keep a charger around to know that my camera will...
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.
Summary: I love it works very good and I am very happy. it is very easy to use, it takes very nice pictures, or short videos, very easy to dowlow pictures to the computer I recomen this camera to anyone.
