Excerpt: When we first started looking for cameras, we didn’t realize how expensive they all were. After a couple days of looking, we quickly knew that if we wanted a good camera, it was going to cost us. So we settled on the Canon A590 IS. I was looking for a camera that would take pictures inside in darker places. What we found was the opposite. In darker rooms, this camera takes terrible pictures. Even with the flash on, you will only get halfway good pictures.
Summary: The Powershot A590IS is a wonderful little camera that takes excellent picture and has enough manual controls to assure good results in more creative situations. Newer models similar to this camera have more megapixels but no IS so generally speaking image quality is no better and may not be as good. Uses AA batteries so powering the camera is never a problem.
Summary: I purchased this camera shortly after Christmas 2008 as my first digital camera - I good choice it was. This camera takes quality photos. It has manual and "semi-manual" modes (like "P"), which I like, so that I can control the results of images (previews of image results are provided via the lcd screen in the camera).
Excerpt: This camera was my brothers, but from my experience handling it, it was relatively easy to use with the regular functions of a point and shoot camera including zoom, landscape setting, macro setting, fast moving setting, etc. The only bad part is that it does require batteries and is a little bit bulkier compared to others.
Excerpt: I Love my Cannon PowerShot A590!! I takes wonderful pictures and has many different settings, which I am still learning. The picture quality is awesome and I have had many printed from local stores with beautiful results. It also has an awesom little video feature that when replayed looks just like it was a full-sized camera!! I have used it many times, including at my son's graduation. Get one n try it for yourself.

Excerpt: we bought the camera not long before we went on vacation i didnt get a chance to read much of the instuctions before we went i had no problem taking some really great pictures and im far from being a pro.
Excerpt: I bought this camera about 4 years ago on sale for $99. I LOVE it. It has been an awesome camera so far. There are tons of features, including manual settings for those of us who like to play around a little. There are also plenty of preset settings to choose from as well. This camera has never really taken good pictures in low light, despite the flash. They always come out very dark, like there was never flash used at all. Taking pictures at night? Forget it.
Excerpt: i like my canon camera because it has a face finder,and it does a lot of other stuff.like if you turn the camera sideways the pix turns to. you can zoom in at a real close range.it takes really clear pix and it looks amazing on the coputer .it also does video and sound.

Excerpt: The Canon Powershot A590 IS is a great buy for under 200$. (I got mine for 120$!) If you know how to use a camera's manual settings, this camera is a great cheap alternative to the basic point and shoot. It has the capability to take absolutely gorgeous pictures- crisp, vibrant, stunning. The Image Stabilization technology really helps those with shaky hands (like myself!), and the little camera has some other great features in its case.
Excerpt: I have had this camera for a couple of years and it still works great takes the most beatiful pictures and videos. Easy to transfer picures and videos on line and you can even see them on your tv screen. must see to appriciate.
