Question about Canon Cameras

1 Answer

Just purchased a canon A590. on page 84 of user guide, continuous shooting is described. I'm somewhat familiar with SD cards, but Canon implies that I have to use their MSH type SD card to use the continuous shooting feature. When I look at the drive modes in my camera, I only see 4 possible modes....single pic, 10 sec delay, 2 second delay, and delay continuous. There is an icon for continuous shooting in the book, but it does not appear on my camera. Why?

I don't own an A590 but I've been handling cameras since the Kodak Instamatic days, so I'll try to help you. I checked out the Canon website for the A590. and they don't specifically state the MSH type SD card. The camera can do 1.4 fps or frames per second of continous shooting. But it also identifies a 20 and 30fps which refers to the movie mode. If the manual states a MSH type Sd card, it usually means that the card may be of a faster recording speed to take continous shots. But I think what you might mean continous shots could be the 3 or 5 second burst on the Digital SLR cameras. These modes are usually for sports and very good for Formular 1 racing pictures. The specs of your camera does not have a sports mode or any continous burst. So you will be stuck in the 1.4fps levels. Let me know if this helps.

Describe your PowerShot A530 IS Digital Camera Problem custom timer setting on the cannon 530


The instructions for using the self-timer (including how to set a custom time interval) are in the "Using the Self-Timer" section of the advanced user guide (beginning on page 37 in my copy). If you need a copy of the manual, you can download one from

How do I unluck the PowerShot A590 IS card?


SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

I have a canon A590 it always says the memory card is locked. Please Help we are going on vaction....


Look at the memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

BTW, if you're about to go on vacation, get a second memory card anyway. Would you drive a car without a spare tire in the trunk?

I have a Canon Power Shot A590 and everytime i try to take a picture it says card locked. What do i do?


Take the memory card out of the camera. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

My Canon Power Shot A590s card is locked and I have absolutely no clue how to unlock it. Please help


Take out your SD card. SD cards have a small sliding switch on the side of the card. The switch moves up and down and is probably in the lock position. 5748d99.jpg

What is the maximum sd carddo i need to use?can i use 8 gig to my cannon power shot A590 IS


SDHC cards go up to 32GB, which puts the upper limit on the size of cards you can use on the A590. There shouldn't be any problem with a properly-functioning 8GB card.

Canon a590 Card (not really) Locked


Remove the SD card from the camera. Slide the tiny switch on the side of the card to its other "unlocked" position. Reinsert the card in the camera. But if you've already tried this, see this link for additional things that you can try.
