As I said at the start of the review, Ive long been a fan of Canons A-series PowerShots. The PowerShot A590 IS remains a very good camera for just about everyone. Its a relatively minor update to its predecessor (the A570), with the main changes be...

Though perhaps not as well known as Canons sexy ultracompact Digital Elph series, the companys A series of entry-level cameras are equally worthy of attention for their ease of use and high quality. The new 8-megapixel PowerShot A590 IS ($179.99 li...

Canons new point-and-shoot has a full-manual mode, macro functionality, and 8 megapixels, but can it take good pictures?...
Good Macro feature, pinpoint focus, excellent manual-mode, broad range of shutter speeds, good overall image quality...
Bad Slow image-processing, tends to over-sharpen, rare but serious viewfinder distortion, some fringing issues...
Bottom line Canons A590 IS has a manual mode that is as fully-featured as you could expect from a point-and-shoot - ISO, shutter-speed, and f-stop selections are all here, and even a workable custom white-balance - and its perfectly capable in full-Auto mode a...

Canon is in the process of rolling out a trio of new “A” series digicams that sell by the container load…and we mean tons. These point-and-shoots run on AA batteries so you’ll never run out of juice—as long as...
Good Very affordable, Optical Image Stabilization, Takes solid, accurate photos...
Bad So-so LCD quality (only 115K pixels), Only 20 fps at best video quality, Would prefer wider-angle lens...
Bottom line Canon has another winner on its hands—this camera will sell by the shipload. At less than $179 USD, the 8MP PowerShot A590IS takes the type of shots casual photographers need captured (landscapes, people and so on) and does the job well. Althoug...

It's a common sense principle that sequels are rarely as good as the original. What seemed like innovation the first time around starts to feel increasingly like little more than imitation as time goes on. Put differently, a successful performance is...
Good Good allaround image quality, Plenty of speed for most uses, Decent high ISO performance, Appealing simple interface, nice ergonomics...
Bad Enough improvements over the A570 to justify the slight initial price premium?, Battery door cheap feeling, hard to close, Flash recycle times still feel long, Canon PowerShot A580/A590 IS specifications:, Sensor 8.0 megapixel, 1/2.5" CCD, Zoom 4x (35140mm) zoom, f/2.65.5, LCD/Viewfinder 2.5", 115Kpixel TFT LCD, Sensitivity ISO 801600, Shutter Speed 151/2000 seconds, Shooting Modes A580: Auto...
Bottom line Words like "acceptable" and "competent" kept cropping up again and again in reviewing the A590 IS, and in a market where anything not praised as excellent is often inferred to be not good, I'm concerned that this undersells this PowerShot's abilities...
