Canon Powershot A590 IS Digital Camera

Few days ago one for my friends ask me to do a research to find a perfect digital camera for her. Her requirements were,

  • Has to be a cheap camera something around 200 usd
  • Good indoor and outdoor photos
  • Small size
  • Easy to use
The Digital camera which came to my mind first was Canon Powershot A580. Which you can get for around 150$ a brand new one and a refurbished one as low as 75$ ! But I thought its better recommend the Canon PowerShot A590 IS Because its Image Stabilizer feature. For someone who don't use Camera for everyday its a great help to get great Photos. Also you can find it for around 200$ and a refurbishedon for even around 150$.

Why Canon PowerShot A590 IS is great -

  • easy to use
  • excellent image quality
  • Lightweight/Portable
  • Bright LCD
  • Image Stabilizer
  • Features worth the price
  • Manual modes
Cons might be these -

  • Short battery life ( Usual for point & shoot camears - Keep extra AA rechargebles)
Thats the only nosiable bad thing about Canon A590IS is short battery life if you use with flash. but its just common among all point & shoot digital cameras. Since you can use Rechargable AA battires for this digital camera (2 AA's) you can keep extra sets of batteries if you want to take photos for hours. You might find some users complaining about bad image quality and bad indoor proformance but all those are because their lack of knowdage or experince using the camera.

The 4x optical zoom lens offers slightly more zoom than the average point-and-shoot digital camera, covering a range equivalent to 35-140mm on a 35mm camera. In addition to the 4x optical zoom, the PowerShot A590 IS features another 4x of digital zoom, which does a decent job of maintaining image quality despite the digital enlargement.

You can make videos and also it has manual focus and other manual options too. So if you are looking for a low price Point & Shoot camera Canon Powershot A590 IS is one of the best you can go for.

If you want to take great photos from a camera then you need to understand the camera first. Its same for this Canon Powershot A590 IS too. If you try to take photos right away without reading manual and without understand whats its strong points and weekpoints Photos won't be good. Its not cameras faults.
