I have this camera since Oct-2008. Good images, and very practical to use. Problems: High noise/textured blue skies, even at ISO 100.

I purchased the A580 as a 2nd camera that I could take with me in my bicycle saddle bag. (My primary camera is an SX-10 IS). Surprisingly enough I find that I use this camera more than I do the SX-10! No, it's not as feature-rich as the larger camera is, however the shots it takes are excellent. In many situations I can not, quite honestly, tell the difference between the two. The 580 is 8MP as opposed to the 10MP on the larger unit but it's difficult to tell the difference at first glance. ...

I bought this little gem just because I wasn´t able to afford a G7 or (better) G9. The reason why I choose this one among some other same priced options was that this one still has an optical viewfinder, like my favourite cameras (Zeiss Ikon Contax II and Kiev). The zoom range equals what I can get from my film cameras with prime lenses plus has the added benefits of being smaller as well as somewhat easier to use than my old and trustable Zeiss bodies. Problems: Not to say problems, but this ...

Just used it a little while, but it is amazingly easy to set up (works OK right out of the box), and there is even a button you can set as you want (I use it to turn off the display, when I don't need it). Simpler to use than all my other digitals (C-8080, Finepix 9500, et cetera). Fairly rigid built. Got mine for less than 100 Euro! Problems: Well, I haven't found out how to set the exposure, yet - probably need to read the manual!

Hi everyone, I bought the PS A580 to have a compact and unexpensive camera to bring along while hiking or riding my mtb in summer and while skying in winter. The camera is an average compact 8MP,it rapidly switches on and shoots such well. Focus engine and zoom are such slow but this can be acceptable when the whole camera can be kept in a fist. There's not much manual control but I didn't expect it to be possible,so I'm not disappointed. The lens aperture goes from 2.6 to 5.5,not bad ! There ...
