Even when the kids can't sit still and the light is less than ideal, the amazing Powershot A570 IS lets you capture life's special moments - perfectly. This camera's Optical Image Stabilizer Technology keeps images crisp even when shot from a distance, without considering the flash. The ISO 1600 and High ISO Auto settings reduce image blur when shot under low lights. Additionally, the A570 IS is packed with easy-to-use convenient features that will ease your photo shooting exercise.
Just imagine what you can do with its 7.1 megapixels! You'll be able to crop and enlarge your pictures to reveal the tiny details and exquisite depth that make every image come alive. Moreover, the powerful Canon 4x Optical Zoom Lens lets you zoom in tight and fast. So no matter where the action is, you'll be up close. The silvery metallic body is smoothly contoured so that the camera does not slip off your grip. You can use this camera even at most challenging places without the fear of losing its grip.
With DIGIC III, you get images of superior quality, the camera functions at top efficiency and battery life is significantly enhanced. What's more, DIGIC III enables Canon's newly improved Face Detection Technology and Red-eye Correction to give you better, more true-to-life color shots. Simply press the Shutter Button halfway down, and the Powershot A570 IS automatically pinpoints the faces in the scene and chooses the ideal focus point. To keep every face look bright and natural - without scary red eyes - the camera controls exposure settings and flash.
The camera's wide 2.5-inch LCD screen lets you better compose a shot, whether you're shooting, reviewing or playing back your photos. This high-resolution screen offers a crisp, clear picture to make shooting, playback convenient. Additionally you also get to read the camera's menu functions without any hassle. Clear and bright, it also features Night Display for easy viewing in low light. The Powershot A570 IS also supports USB 2.0 Hi-Speed standard, this transfers data at the fastest possible rate when used with a USB 2.0 Hi-Speed compatible computer.

My comments mirror many I have seen on the internet about the 570is....you start getting a low battery indicator quickly, even with brand new batteries...then a short time later the camera will simply shut down, even though your batteries are fine: put them in another camera and do another 200 shots or more. I bought one of these factory rebuilt in Oct 2007...it simply totally died in April 2009...Canon said it would cost $80 to fix, more than what it costs to buy another rebuilt one. I would not recommend this model to anyone....I had 2 Powershots die the same week...they are great while they work...they just don't work very long
I have a Nikon 8400 which is a great camera, with a swing out LCD Viewer. But it is bulky. I purchased this Canon last week and took over 350 3.1MP pictures with it so far, indoor and out this week. It takes great shots under flourescent, tungsten, and incadescent lighting, as well as sunny and cloudy days. Where before I would have to tweak the Nikon for differing exposure conditions, this camera automatically adjusts and compensates. I have several comments: -There are 2 owners manuals: Basic and Advanced. One needs to switch between both to get all the information on the camera. A big pain. -This camera's focal range is 35-140mm . I would prefer a close-up range of at least 28mm. -I put in new and charged NiMH 2700mAh batteries. The camera is still taking pictures after the 350 shots. And no low battery indicator yet. -There is no provision for external flash. You have to buy a Canon adapter and flash. -It fits nicely in a shirt pocket. -Large LCD screen. -The SD card and batteries are both accessed with the same cover, so you need to power down before changing cards, otherwise the camera shuts off.
