Ever sinceI saw the press release for the PowerShot A570 IS posted on this site last month, I've been eagerly awaiting updates/reviews. The model is now for sale online andin stores, so I look forward to the nicely detailed review and sample pics Steve provides.
Itappears to be a step forward in the Powershot A-series with the addition ofimage stabilizationwhile still retaining a decent-sized LCD screen and optical viewfinder. I'm hopeful the noise will be kept well under control up to 800 ISOfor decent low-light pics. The AA batteryaspect issignificant for me when traveling with student groups to Europe.I'll usethe NiMHrechargeableshere in the US, but it's nice to have the alkaline option when constantly on the move for a week or two and not have to worry about thecharger, the converter/plugs,etc.
