Summary: Been a fan of these guys for a long time. Light enough to bring camping and the manual settings are badly needed on the digitals out there. Only way you can manage low-light scenarios is by controlling both shutter speed and aperture.
Very nice camera with viewfinder, too bad it is discontinued.

Summary: This is the ideal camera for me. It is easy to use, and I can carry it in my pocket. The camera has a viewfinder, which is vital for outdoor photography in full sunlight (glare is bad on a screen) and also is vital for older photographers who would have to fish around for reading glasses to compose...
Summary: I was mulling over buying a digital camera for weeks. One internet review site after another I labored and labored. I ran across a review for this jewel and fell in love! Needless to say when I got this baby home I was even more Impressed with the functionality and freedom you have with it.
Bought this for our 13 yr old daughter, she LOVES it!

Summary: We bought a refurb. piece, and found everything to be in order, all was in great shape. My daughter has used the camera consistently for the last few weeks, and found it very easy to operate. This is a great camera for the money. If my Olympus broke today, I would replace it with the Canon.
Summary: I bought the camera for my wife in the begining of the school year, she is a preschool teacher and loves to make collages of the kids and print them on large format photo paper and post or give the parents. This camera exceeded all expectations.
Summary: I am very satisfied with the Canon PowerShot A590 IS. I read many reviews of many digital cameras and I found this one to have the most features I wanted for the price. This camera takes great pictures indoors and out. The 4x zoom is great. Nice close-ups. I am glad I read the directions though.
Summary: I am very pleased with my A590. Buying "refurbished" was a very smart move, IMHO and the service was like with brand new. I photograph fiber art among other things, and with this camera I create photos that are my best ever.
