Except for the zoom, is there anything that would make me want to buy the A720 instead of the A590?


EDIT: Does the A590 shoot 640x480 video at only 20 FPS? That's crazy.

For some strange reason, Canon knocked down the video quality in the A590IS. I'd go with the A720 - better video, better lens.

Alright, well what about the A580, then? The A720 is marked unreasonably higher than both.

The A580 is the same as the A590 but without manual controls. The A580 also has a maximum video performance of 640x480 at 20 fps.

The A570IS is similar to the A720IS but with a 4x zoom lens. The A570IS has similar video to the A720IS - 640x480 at 30 fps. You may be able to find the A570 at a cheaper price than the A720.

That is sort of disapointing to me.

I was looking for a camera to replace my broken A570 IS.

So, I should justget another A570 IS instead of the A720 IS?
