The A580's movie mode has two distinct options: the Full HD 1080i AVCHD format (which needs to be decoded to edit on a computer), or a lower-resolution MP4 format that can be read straight from camera. Making both quality settings available is a huge bonus, as the often laborious process of converting the footage can be bypassed at the user's decision.
Another fairly significant feature is the decision of Sony to include both their own Memory Stick Duo format and SD in separate slots, selectable by a switch. This gives any photographer stepping up from a compact a fairly reasonable chance of having at least one usable memory card, though it's not possible to use both simultaneously.
As per most current DSLR cameras, the A580 also offers a D-Range mode that brightens shadowed areas, plus there's an in-camera HDR mode that can capture two shots and fuse them together in-camera.
