Better than my cell phone camera

  • 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: See the Cons above!
  • Pros: Small camera size with manual settings.
  • Cons: The only con I can see is the price your listing this camera for! I bought this camera about 3 yrs. ago and only paid about $130.00. The price you show is way way to high for a CCD (not CMOS) sensor and a 8mp 4x zoom camera!

  • Pros: Basic Camera acts the way it should at a very good price.
  • Cons: Company organization and its supply chain impedes customer support.Local policies is apparently self serving.

  • 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 little gem was smaller than i thought it would be, but that is ok. the view screen is big enough for my mom to see, the functions are easy to set on the camera, and overall its easy to figgure out even if you are NOT a tech person (i am not). of course the book that comes with it could be bigger print, but we cant have everything!! i am quite pleased that it doesnt eat batteries like my old hewlett packard did, too. i am quite pleased with everything.
