Canon A590 IS: a best-seller that still fits most photographers’ dreams!

It’s been around for a while, it may not have all the techno-features of the very latest competitors, but the Canon PowerShot A590IS 8MP Digital Camera with 4x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom is still one of the very best compact cameras around.

Take a look at this chart from and spot which camera (not just compact models) is the best seller! :)

The raw data:

  • 8.0 effective megapixel CCD,
  • Canon’s Digic III processor,
  • 35-140mm 35mm-equivalent lens with 4x Optical image-stabilized zoom and up to 4x Digital Zoom,
  • 2.5-inch LCD screen; Face DetectionWhat’s more, compared to other (even newer) cameras:
  • sensitivity up to 1600
  • Face Detection AF
  • 13 shooting modes, 7 scene modes including Easy Mode
  • Program, Shutter-Priority and Aperture-Priority Exposure Modes
  • 32MB internal memory
  • DIGIC III Image Processor
  • 5cm macro (!)Last but not least, Canon offers optional accessories for the A590 IS, including Selphy Photo Printer and converter lenses!Why we do love it?

    Besides high-ISO ability, the Canon A590IS is one of the very few compact cameras featuring true photographic controls hidden within the 13 shooting modes: Aperture and Shutter Priority modes, the one that really give any amateur photographer the right tools to take control over photo shooting the good ol’ way and right the same way as DSLRs do.

    Don’t dismiss the Canon A590IS and give it a second look: it’s now even more affordable than ever at US$ 109.00!
