There are good digital cameras and cheap digital cameras - the trick is getting both in the same package. The Canon PowerShot A590 IS is one digital camera that delivers a lot of capability and good photos at a low price.
We also like the fact that Canon A590IS is well-suited to both novices and advanced users. Total beginners can put it in "Easy" mode and snap away, but a full range of features (including full manual exposure control) will satisfy more advanced users.
The Canon PowerShot A590 IS offers 4x optical zoom, an excellent range of exposure modes and options, and is very user-friendly. Face and Motion Detection ensure good-looking portraits, even of moving subjects, and an intelligent selection of preset Scene modes offer great exposure flexibility. The Canon A590IS has a bright 2.5-inch LCD display, but also features a real-image optical viewfinder to help conserve battery power.
Not a perfect camera by any means, but a heck of a buy at its current ~$150 street price. Click here to read our Canon A590IS review for all the details!
