I purchased this camera a couple of months ago for my wife when her old Fuji A330 bit the dust. All she wanted was a simple P&S that she could get her head around. She absolutely loves this camera, the picture quality is first rate and it weighs next to nothing so carrying it around all day isn't a problem. I also own a Canon S3is which takes superb pictures but being that much bigger it's a pain to take out when I go for a ride on my motorbike. I find that her little 570 is being used more ...

I bought this a570is to replace an a530, which developed a lazy eye (intermittently sticking aperture cover blade) after two years rough outdoors use and almost 10,000 pictures. The a530 is/was a fabulous camera and the a570is (after about 3000 pictures) appears to be the same. Battery consumption about the same as the a530 ( about 400+ pictures from a set of DuraCell 2650 ma*hr NiMiH batteries). This camera is excellent. The images are sharp, the focus is reliable, the automatic white ...

I bought an A570IS for a trip to WDW in Nov 2007 specifically because I wanted a good, pocket sized (but not too small) P&S that I might have a chance at getting at least some 'big camera' type shots. I've been very happy with the choice, although, I probably should have spent a bit more for the A720IS to get the extra zoom. Video mode was a GREAT plus, although I wish MPEG4 compression was supported to reduce file size. But quality is very good considering it is a P&S. I bought this camera ...

I bought this camera from Singapore in Dec' 07 and have sold it today after having used it only for 5 months. I have no complaints with the camera as such coz it offers all the features a good camera would offer and is very comapct and easy to carry.You can play around with the settings as to your whims and fancies. However, one of my biggest complaints and the actual reason for disposing off this camera so soon was the battery life of this camera. This camera is a battery guzzler. I had ...

Have had this camera since Feb.What I really like is the manual overides,everything is on the screen with easy accsess.I can change my settings very quickly,which means more shots under optimal conditions.It,s slow to recycle,the LCD isn't the clearest eaiest to veiw.high ISO is very grainy.I REALLY LIKE this camera even with it's shortfallings. Problems: The battery compartment hatch is so seemingly flimsy,it's alarmingHaven't had a problem with it,but I'm keeping the duct tape close.

Bought this camera few days ago, had a sony P-73 but it has broken. I'm quitly impressed with the camera, IS works just fine, liked colors and the manual white balance, things that i missed in the P-73, the pictures are way better in this camera, not the sharpest pictures i've ever seen, but the best i've seen in a camera that fits my budget. Was looking for buying A720IS but here in Brazil, the price gap is around US$100 (Paid around US$250 in a country that has 60% import taxes over ...

I aleady own the competitor Nikon L11, but got the A570 hoping for the better video feature, I am very dispointed, camera is going back. Most people who buy the A570 will do it because of the IS feature. The IS is no help and has no effect on this camera. Compared to the IS results on my 200mm DSLR lens, the A570 IS feature is non-existant. Lots of blurry pictures. Image quality is NOT better then L11, even at ISO80 A570 images are noisy and over processed by the camera, lots of blurry ...

Bought it to take RAW photos w/CHDK. Yes folks, you can take RAW photos with a Canon Powershot A570 by updating the firmware. Note, the firmware is created by hobbyists, not by Canon. See here: chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page Overall I am impressed with the camera. The only two gripes that I have are (A) the video mode records a lot of audio hiss, which Canon's tech support tells me is a software "feature" not a bug, and (B) the lens motor is rather noisy & tinny. It is portable enough to keep ...

I bought the A570IS at the same time as my new 400D, as I wanted a camera that could do the things the SLR could not... 1\ Cheap, so that I could take it to events and not be too concerned about losing \ breaking it. 2\ Small, so that it could fit into a pocket or small bag, for the occasions where the SLR would be too big and annoying 3\ Take movies with sound at 30fps for as long as the memory lasts, something SLR can't do. Looking back at all of the movies I have taken with my 4 yeard ...
