The Kodak M590 is a very good looking camera with good image quality overall, despite some problems with chromatic aberration. It does surprisingly well in low light situations. It has a quick auto-focus system that is reliable in good light (though not as reliable in dimmer light).

While the camera has a few ergonomic issues, its flash is underpowered and its video ability is only fair, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it at its current street price except for one major flaw – its shot-to-shot time is terribly slow. It’s hard to imagine users not becoming frustrated with waiting between five to seven seconds between shots without the flash and ten seconds when the flash is in use.
