  • Summary: Love the camera. It takes great pictures and videos, but every couple of pictures it shows low battery. I have learned that you can take the batteries out and immediately put them back and it will go for a few more pictures. At first, I thought I had defective rechargable batteries, but then realized it was the camera. Takes great pictures up close and at distances. If not for the battery problem, I'd give it five stars.

Canon PowerShot A590 IS Review

boiler1, Ebay
9 July 2009
  • Summary: One of the few compact digital cameras that has fully programmable settings (for shutter and aperature priority), and also can use regular AA batteries. However, the camera seemed a bit on the flimsy side since the body and area around the lense were plastic (not metal like the SD series of cameras), and if mega pixels matter, it was only 8.0 (many are now 12 and higher).

  • Summary: The Canon Powershot A590 takes decent day and night time pictures for its price. It also has a viewfinder, which is cool. However, I did not like it for the following reasons: it takes AA batteries (personally I did not want this), it has a weird shape - kind of awkward to hold, its kind of heavy, the button is hard to press, it is more complicated than I wanted, sometimes the pictures blurred and most annoyingly of all, it does not take pictures continuously, so you...

Nice camera, but...

Lucinda Linde "Lucrezia", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this camera in 2008. Here are the pros and cons: Pros: Good size- fits in hand and pocket. Very good resolution- if you're taking a still, well-lit shot, your can blow the pictures up very large and still have a decent resolution. Good video and sound: you can video in fairly low light and sound is ok. Cons: They give you a tiny chip- you have to buy one large enough to hold 200 pictures. This cost me $20, but could be less now.

Do Not Buy Canon Digital Cameras!

Overstock
7 October 2008
  • Summary: I had a terrible experience w/ Cannon and this camera. Loved the camera...had a little trouble operating at first, but figured out it was user error...camera came with a 1 year warrantee, and OF COURSE, 8 months later, the camera stopped working. I was in the middle of taking a picture, and it just turned off. It was not dropped..it just stopped working.

Pros and cons

  • Summary: I bought one of these for my big bike ride across America in 2010,I was attracted to it for ability to use easy to get hold of AA batteries as charging a lithium one up isn't easy when you are camping,I also like the fact it has an ordinary view finder for when the suns to bright to see the LCD screen,also unlike most digital compacts it has decent sized button and feals good in the hand due to it's large grip,on top of that it has familiar exposer modes that I am used...

Pocket digital camera

Johnwe "Coulsford", Amazon
19 February 2009
  • Summary: After seeing it as a Which? "best buy" bought this Canon Powershot A590 on Amazon for a staggering £78 because it had a proper viewfinder. However, the viewfinder is extremely poor. Decent pictures but extremely complicated menu system. This was bought as a pocket camera to carry around rather than lug the much bigger Nikon 8800 I have. But this Nikon and a previous Nikon Coolpix pocket digital are much more user friendly.

Bella ma datata

  • Summary: Premetto che questa è stata una delle mie prime macchine fotografiche e che ho viaggiato molto con lei insieme quindi sicuramente a questa macchina fotografica sono legati molti dei miei ricordi. Dopo questa premessa però vado ad elencare pregi e difetti oggettivi. Uno dei pro maggiori è la compattezza e la resistenza, è infatti ottima per viaggiare in quanto regge molto bene gli urti (non sono esattamente una proprietaria attenta ai propri oggetti) e può essere portata...
  • Pros: compatta
  • Cons: poche funzionalità
