Great picture quality; fast shutter speed; broad manual feature set.
Chunky appearance; slow shot-to-shot time with the onboard flash enabled.
The Canon PowerShot A590 IS's manual exposure controls and surprisingly sharp pictures make it a great choice for almost anyone looking for a sub-$200 shooter.

The camera feels just right in the hand, especially with the side grip. I was surprised at the size of the camera, having been accustomed to a bigger and heavier 35mm with assorted lenses. This was the only difference and it makes the Canon a pleasure to carry. I had done extensive online research on digital cameras, utilizing consumer product guides and rating services, this was the best bang for the buck. Best feature is the view finder. The camera has more features than I could possibly understand, but I am reading the owners guide and taking a basic digital camera course to learn to finer points of digital photography.
Bottom line is I am thrilled with my purchase. I still have my Canon AE1 and some super lenses for special photo work. But my go to camera and daily user is the Canon PowerShot A590 IS.
PROS: size, design, printed manual, ease of use, flexibility, price, larager LCD than older models
CONS: haven't found any yet - haven't tested software
This is a power house little camera.
It has enough size to it to allow for a comfortable grip without being cumbersome. While it won't fit in a shirt pocket (What are you doing putting a camera in your shirt pocket anyway? Might as well just throw it on the ground and get it over with!) it's small enough to go wherever you need to take it with no hassle. I dislike the tiny new cameras as they are difficult to grasp if you're trying to do any adjustments to fine-tune a shot. Speaking of adjustments...
You have such versatility. You can go all AUTO or you can change a number of different settings to tailor your shot to the situation. While the MENU and FUNC buttons are Canon's standard easy-to-follow buttons, an added bonus is the printed manual that explains the functions in easy to understand language.
I chose this camera over the other Canons I looked at for two reasons in particular: 1) My hands shake a lot. The IS capability provides good correction for the shaking. 2) The A590 IS allows the addition of speciality lenses. I can pop on a macro and get stunning details on a hand-painted objet d'art or use a wide angle for large sweeping landscapes.
I've just begun to use this camera and will add to this as I find any significant additional information.
I LOVE this camera!!!!! It is very easy to use and easy to hold. There is a ledge to grip where cannon is written. It feels very stable in my hands!!!!!
My 17 year old son said he thinks they should start making this camera again. (He has taken classes in school on photography and enjoys taking pictures.) He said the manuel settings are easy to use. For a point and shoot he says it's pretty good. He did say the iso doesn't go very high (1600). The camera he uses goes to 3200.
My 10 year old also loves to take pictures. She shoots videos of her animals. It doesn't disappoint thats for sure!!!! This camera works great for young and old!!!!
It is bigger than other point and shoot cameras but I personally love the size. it is the best I've found. My family and friends have also bought this camera because they have seen what mine can do. I just picked up 2 more of these. One for myself as an extra, and one for my mother. Ironically, when I gave my mother the one I bought for her, she told me she just bought one for herself. Go figure!!!!! (I have bought a couple other cameras and they don't come close to this one.) That is why I bought the 2 recent A590IS's.
I have 4 VERY active kids and I am thrilled that this camera takes amazing action shots!!!! Jumping rope for example, there is no fuzz at all. It gets the rope clear as day too. I have amazing pictures around campfire coals and fantastic shots of my kids during sporting events. My high jump shots, and waves crashing over my kids at the beach are great. Just as my pictures of faces,flowers, bugs, and animals are. Oh, I also have belly flop contest pictures. They are more than amazing!!!!! You can clearly see the water droplets and great facial expressions of those landing and those near by feeling the pain. LOL!!!! Remarkable!!!!
I love that it uses AA batteries. I use rechargeable ones and they last a long time. Unfortunately regular AA don't last long. But, it is convenient to be able to grab them on the go if needed! (I have needed.) It uses SD and SDHC memory cards. I have only used the SDHC card, as I said before, the pictures and video are fantastic!!!!!
I very highly recommend this camera to everyone. You can't go wrong with this gem of a camera!!!!!!!
I bought this camera about 3 years ago and the only reason I need a new camera is my 2 year old 'played' with it. I have taken great pics of him with it everywhere. I cannot complain at all about it. I recommend it for a general use camera due to its size and features. I like the black and white pic feature too. The software is great for the computer, too.
I purchased this camera shortly after Christmas 2008 as my first digital camera - I good choice it was. This camera takes quality photos. It has manual and "semi-manual" modes (like "P"), which I like, so that I can control the results of images (previews of image results are provided via the lcd screen in the camera). The movie mode is good enough for this camera to serve as a primary camcorder (which is good for me since I don't have a dedicated camcorder) - the VGA-quality modes (one "normal" VGA-quality mode, and another VGA-quality mode that allows for almost double the recording time of the "normal" mode) are what I would consider to be "DVD quality," a downside being that the frame rates are limited depending on which video quality setting is chosen (ex. 30 fps for QVGA-quality; 20 FPS for VGA-quality), though I think those frame rates are still acceptable; the camera can pick up tiny sounds when recording video (mono audio), which can be a good thing (when you want the sounds) and a not-so desired thing (when you don't want the sounds, like sounds coming from the camera itself, which generally seem to be minimal). The image stabilization is useful for reducing blur in images. The camera has a bit of weight to it, but nothing terrible. It's relatively quiet when operating. Delay between images isn't too bad with appropriate settings. I think this camera has been dropped at least a couple of times, but still seems to work just like it did when I purchased it 5 years ago. This camera has a spot on the bottom of it for tripods, which I find useful (it does exactly what it's suppose to do - it stays on my tripod well). The flash, when used a lot, can take some time to recharge, but I think it's acceptable (nothing horrible). Using lithium batteries, this camera seems to last a while; it seems that as this camera has aged though, "regular batteries" seem to drain quite quickly, and the AC adapter (separate purchase) doesn't seem to always work right (might be a problem with the adapter itself). The software included with this camera works well; definitely helpful with organizing pictures and doing other tasks like creating videos and "stitching" photos together. Overall, this is a great little camera that can certainly get the job done, whether it's taking quality pictures or recording quality video. God bless!
