Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Even when the kids can’t sit still and the light is less than ideal, the amazing, the PowerShot A570 IS lets you capture life’s special moments -- perfectly. Optical Image Stabilizer Technology keeps images crisp even when you’re zoomed way in. The ISO 1600 and High ISO Auto settings reduce blur when the lights are down low. Plus, the A570 IS is packed with easy-to-use creative and convenient features you’ll love.

PowerShot A570IS Highlights

DIGIC III Image Processor DIGIC III features Face Detection AF/AE, which finds multiple faces in the frame and sets the most suitable focus point, when the shutter button is pressed halfway. And an additional new feature, Face Detection FE adjusts the flash, based on a person’s face on the screen. Exposure and flash are controlled to ensure proper illumination of both the faces and the overall scene, eliminating the common problem of darkened or overexposed faces.

Red-eye Correction detects and automatically corrects red-eye during playback for both regular and flash photography. In unusual cases where red-eye is not automatically detected, it can easily be corrected manually during playback mode from the LCD screen.

iSAPS Technology is an entirely original scene-recognition technology developed for digital cameras by Canon. Using an internal database of thousands of different photos, iSAPS works with the fast DIGIC III Image Processor to improve focus speed and accuracy, as well as exposure and white balance.

Clear, high-resolution 2.5-inch LCD for easy on-camera viewing The camera’s 2.5-inch LCD screen gives you the big picture, whether you’re shooting, reviewing or showing off your images. This high-resolution screen offers a crisp, clear picture to make shooting, playback and using the camera’s menu functions especially convenient. Clear and bright, it also features Night Display for easy viewing in low light.

ISO 1600 and High ISO Auto The PowerShot A570 IS features new ISO 1600 and High ISO Auto settings that reduce the effects of camera shake and sharpen subjects in low-light situations, giving you greater flexibility for shooting.

A variety of movie-making options With a highly flexible movie mode, you can create the movie that’s perfect for any application. Select from VGA (640 x 480 pixels) and QVGA (320 x 240 pixels), with frame rates of 30 fps and 15 fps for recording up to 1 hour or 4GB. Also Fast Frame Rate (QVGA; 320 x 240 pixels) recording at 60 fps for up to 1 minute, and Compact Movie Mode (QQVGA; 160 x 120 pixels) recording at 15 fps for up to 3 minutes. The PowerShot A570 IS also supports the USB 2.0 Hi-Speed standard, so you’ll enjoy the fastest possible data transfer speeds when using a USB 2.0 Hi-Speed compatible computer.

Shooting Modes Advanced presets for the best possible photos under certain conditions.

  • Auto The camera chooses all the settings so you can concentrate on your subject.
  • P Program Access advanced exposure compensation features while shooting mostly automatically.
  • Av Aperture-priority You define the aperture to either isolate your subject or have clarity throughout the entire picture, and the camera will choose the corresponding shutter speed.
  • Tv Shutter-priority You select the shutter speed to stop or blur action, and the camera finds the appropriate aperture. With slow exposure times, Canon’s noise reduction system activates to ensure low image noise.
  • Manual The ultimate in creative control, you set ISO speed, exposure compensation and white balance.
  • Portrait The camera sets a large aperture, focusing the subject and artistically blurring the background to make your subject "pop."
  • Landscape For front to back sharpness, the camera sets a small aperture.
  • Night Snapshot Get natural-looking pictures with brighter backgrounds and subjects lit by flash.
  • Indoor Reduce blur and improve color accuracy when shooting handheld indoors.
  • Kids & Pets Reduced focusing time freezes fast-moving subjects, so you won’t miss those special shots.
  • Stitch Assist Build awe-inspiring panoramas by neatly aligning sequential images.
  • Movie Shoot in VGA and QVGA (30 fps/15 fps for up to 1 hour or 4GB), Fast Frame Rate (60 fps for up to 1 minute) or QQVGA (15 fps for up to 3 minutes).

Special Scene Modes

  • Night Scene For impressive sunset or nightlife shots, the camera properly exposes the background and uses slow-sync flash for the subject.
  • Foliage Capture brilliant shots of autumn foliage, greenery and blossoms.
  • Snow Shoot clear snow scenes without darkened subjects or an unnatural bluish tint.
  • Beach Get clear shots of people at a sunny beach without darkened faces.
  • Fireworks Grab brilliant images of skyrocketing fireworks.
  • Aquarium Achieve proper flash-free exposure and natural hues at indoor aquariums.
  • Underwater Capture underwater images with reduced backscatter effect.(Note: Optional Waterproof Case WP-DC12 required for shooting any underwater images)

Get new batteries anywhere Power on the go with two AA-size batteries. You don’t need to worry about running out or recharging batteries. Since AA-size batteries can be purchased at any store, simply get new ones locally.

The complete print solution Print/Share Button for easy direct printing and downloading, plus ID Photo Print and Movie Print with Canon CP and Selphy Compact Photo Printers.

You can even take select Compact Photo Printers to a party or an outdoor picnic using an optional rechargeable battery.

Last year, after extensive research, I bought a Canon A540 to replace my trusty Olympus D40-Zoom. My goals for camera selection where (a) compact size, (b) standard AA batteries, (c) full manual controls, (d) outstanding image quality, (e) speed, (f) optical viewfinder. The A540 fit the bill almost perfectly, with a handful of limitations that I noted in my review.

This year, with Canon's release of the A570IS, I decided to upgrade, driven by the addition of optical image stabilization (IS). While the IS is impressive, I was surprised by other improvements that Canon has made. Image noise levels are significantly lower and more controlled for higher ISO captures. The Digic III processor seems to make more intelligent decisions about lighting and flash exposure, especially when its face recognition is engaged. Add a dramatically better quality LCD screen, slightly higher 7.1MP resolution, improved case, and support of high capacity SD cards, and I doubt I'll need to upgrade any time soon.

Like the A540, the A570IS is for me a perfect balance of size, speed, and photo quality. The A570IS is the same physical size as the A540. It's small enough to fit in a coat pocket or small belt case yet uses 2 AA batteries.

Like the A540, overall processing speed is very fast unless you're taking flash pictures (and then you should expect about 4-6 seconds between flashes depending on battery level and what flash strength the camera selected). Note that flash time is significantly better with high-capacity rechargeable NiMh batteries than with standard AAs. And, unlike some other cameras I have tried, the speed of the user interface (especially during playback) is very fast.

Picture quality in general is excellent, even in low light situations.

I've had this camera for about a month now and have taken well over a hundred photos in different settings ranging from indoor birthday parties to outdoor hunting photos of dogs.

Overall, this is by far the best digital camera I've owned. Previously I've used a Sony DSC-W5 and Nikon Coolpix L3 -- all were in the $200+ range.

Shutter lag on this camera is minimal. I've missed many pictures of my dogs in the past because they've run out of frame during the time from when I pushed the shutter button to when the camera actually took the shot. I've not had that problem at all with this camera. Using the kids/pets setting, it uses a fast enough shutter speed to stop the action as well.

I also like the Shutter Priority priority mode as well. It allows me to set whatever shutter speed I think is necessary for the shot, and the camera takes care of everything else. It flashes a warning if I have the shutter set too fast for available light.

Other useful features I've noticed making a difference is the "face recognition" technology and the "Image Shake" reduction. There are lots of bells and whistles on cameras that I do not use, but with these two I have had very few bad pictures.

The flash has FAR better coverage than the Nikon. I frequently had shadows at the edge even when the subject was fairly close. While not as good as a separate hot shoe flash on a SLR, this flash is the best I've had on a compact digital.

Finally, I love the optical viewfinder! I take many photos outdoors in bright sunlight that can be difficult to frame with any LCD screen. The viewfinder is a lifesafer in those situations. It is easy to compose a photo and so far they have turned out perfectly when using the camera this way.

This camera has tons of features that I have not mentioned. I just listed those most important to me and the way I take photos. I would highly recommend this camera to potential buyers.

My current camera is an Olympus SP-320. You can read my review on that product page, if you wish.

I like the pictures I take, but I'm no pro and there is always someone whose pictures I admire more. I have one friend who consistently takes great shots. When a bunch of us attended a wedding last summer, there was a vibrancy to her shots that mine couldn't quite match. Since she swore by her Canon Power Shot, I thought I'd give the A570IS a chance. This weekend I had both the A570IS and the SP-320 with me on a weekend jaunt and took half of my pictures with each camera, swapping back and forth between the two.

Both cameras use two AA batteries. Both have optical viewfinders. Both have more modes than the casual picture taker will ever need.

In my hands, the picture quality is almost indistinguishable. In some settings I prefer the Olympus; in others, the Canon, so the A570SI is going to be returned since I'm well within the return period. However, if I had the option of returning the Olympus, too, I'd keep the Canon. Here's why:

* The Canon is slightly smaller. The bulge on the Olympus makes it harder to find a suitable case.

* The Canon's mode selector dial clicks firmly into place, unlike the Olympus's which is very loose. The Olympus's dial often moves when the camera is removed from its case. Not so, the Canon.

* The Canon has 4x zoom compared to the Olympus's 3x. Also, the digital zoom is better implemented in the Canon. The Canon stops at full optical zoom. If the zoom slider is released and reengaged, the digital zoom is applied. This is true even in Auto mode. The Olympus's digital zoom is not readily available in every mode.
