I recently bought a Canon Powershot A 590 IS digital camera after reading a lot of positive reviews about the product, and I have to say that it was indeed one very good camera for it's price range. It's actually a powerpacked camera with: 4x optical zoom, 8.0-megapixels, a 2.5 inch LCD (bigger than most cameras of it's level), and an IS (Image Stabilizer) feature perfect for beginners.
This camera actually exceeded my expectations in terms of the quality iamges that itcreates
Once you get a grip of it's automatic and manual features (it won't take long because it's really made with simplicity), you'll feel like using a normal point-and-shoot camera with greater results almost similar to D-SLR cameras.
I highly recommend this to photography enthusiasts who wanted to get a acquainted with some of the manual features and techniques before moving to a D-SLR camera. And for those who wanted good photos with not much of a budget to start with.
I've been using this camera for 5 months now, and I've enjoyed every part of it. This really is one great deal for me.
Beginner, Enthusiasts, or Pro, this is one good camera for you.
