3 out of 5 eggs Just gonna throw this out there, but... 12/27/2008

This review is from: Canon PowerShot A1000 IS Brown 10.0 MP 4X Optical Zoom Digital Camera

Pros:

It's a Canon. It should be adequate for normal snapshots. It is more compact than it's predecessors.

Cons:

... it's the A1000 IS (Could even be the A2000 IS, for that matter) ...

People buy A series cameras for specific reasons, and those are being abandoned, resulting in a camera that's just another camera.

Other Thoughts:

all I know is a Powershot A series camera, WITHOUT manual operation mode, isn't really an A series camera at all. Removing this feature was big mistake. Also, there is a wide consensus that the new Powershots do not perform anywhere near as well up close, focus wise, as their earlier counterparts.

I don't know what's going on with these two new models, they abandon major features of older models, and you can't really argue that it's a cost cutting maneuver, as the A590IS features basically the same optics and is considerably less. I have an A540 and the A590 IS. Even from an ergonomic standpoint, the A590 is better. The unusual wedge shape of this camera seems to be another common complaint.

While it's an acceptable point and shoot camera, you can buy much better models, and Canon can build much better models. It's just frustrating when manufacturers pointlessly try to reinvent the wheel in a way that doesn't advance the product in any noticeable way.
