Canon PowerShot A590 IS

 

Aiming to strengthen and rejuvenate its mid-compact range, Canon unveiled four new A-Series point-and-shoots, delivering manual control at an affordable price point; we dissect the PowerShot A590 IS

Canon PowerShot A590IS

 

My digital camera expertise begins and ends with this fact: I cannot resist the urge to photograph a couple of fuzzballs named Chuckie and Violet. I'm a classic novice point-and-shooter, and the crème de la crème of my snapshots find their way onto...

Easy to use, even for extreme novices ; Excellent optical image stabilization

Size is a bit too big ; Plastic body and handgrip get slippery
