'I love how small and lightweight it is but still find it too slow--the maximum aperture of f/3.5 simply doesn't let in enough light and doesn't allow for a shallow enough depth of field for my purposes.'
'The T1i can capture video at 1080p, but that's at 20 frames per second, rather than at 24, 30, or 60 fpsâ??which is what's required for the video to look truly fluid. 720p30 video captured on the T1i is more natural-looking than 1080p20 video.'
'And while the screen does show very fine detail, it's still not good enough for assessing subtle focus problems.'
'The Canon A580 automatically detects, tracks, focuses and optimizes the exposure on up-to nine forward looking human faces in the frame or can lock onto a specific face in the crowd, ensuring that all (or one) are in focus and properly exposed, with or without flash.'
'the zoom feature here is jerky and difficult to manage'
'Its three-tabbed menu system can get a little confusing, though; in addition to Setup, there are two Capture menus labeled Capture and Capture +, so you may have to scroll through both to find the functions you want.'
'It has no shutter- or aperture-priority mode'
'Just be careful when gripping the camera during movie or audio playback - the tiny thumb-rest sits directly below the speaker and you'll cover it with your thumb'
'All is not perfect though – the joystick is still a little uncomfortable to use, as is the zoom toggle.'
