Summary: I bought this used and it arrived sooner than expected. The camera is good for outdoor daylight pictures. The only drawback is for indoor pictures. The flash takes too long to get ready between pictures. This camera is discontinued but it serves my purposes just fine.
Summary: This camera is amazing. This camera is for everyone. Whether you are a pro photographer who spends hours setting up a single shot or you need something to slip into your purse when you hit the town, this camera does everything. This is perfect for those quick shots where you don't want to take out a big DSLR or a DSLR is too big and intimidating to your subject. Photography is all about capturing the moment and the best camera is the one that you use.
Pros: OS and button placement:, The entire camera set-up is great. All of the buttons are in just the right places and make perfect sense. Same goes for the menus in the camera. I can always find what I am looking for and what I want to change. The Mode Dial on the top gives me quick control over how I want to shoot and unlike many other cameras in its class, it is easy to get to a full manual mode., Lens:, I love the lens. I have not yet invested in a wide angle lens for m...
Cons: Direct Print button. What a waste of a button. No one I know uses it from point-and-shoots to DSLRs, this is the most pointless button on all Canon models., Otherwise, no complains., What I expect from a camera that the Powershot A590 does not provide:, -Does not defend against ninjas. In our modern day of technology, one would expect Canon to develop an anti-ninja mechanism., -Cannot withstand fire. I've always wanted a picture of the middle of a bonfire, this camera...
Summary: This camera is very bulky and too large to really go into your pocket, but the quality of the photos, along with the price, make this a very good camera. It is very easy to use. I like the fact that it has a viewfinder and LCD screen. No redeye photos. If you don't mind having a large camera in your pocket, then this is a good choice.
Summary: I have a degree in Fine Arts Photography and am used to working with high-end cameras. After thorough research, I bought the Canon A590 as a daily simple photo camera. This camera is loaded with practical features. The image stabilizer, ease of use and different shooting modes is amazing for the price. I like everything about it except for two features. There is a short lag time in taking a picture so action shots are not recommended with it.

Excerpt: This is my review of the Canon Powershot A590IS, my awesome new camera! I start my video actually shooting with the camera, so you can see for yourself the great quality, as well as throw in a few pictures shot on the camera. It is a great camera, and I am glad that I decided to stick with the canon Powershot brand when I needed to upgrade.
Pros: LOVE the quality of pictures and video, LOVE the reasonable price on this camera, LOVE that it takes AA batteries, so I can have some spares in my camera bag!
Cons: I do not like having the SD card in the same compartment as the batteries., It is alot smaller than the older powershot A-series, so is harder to grasp, Wish it had a flip open screen so I can see what I'm doing when I have to film myself!
