Canon PowerShot A560 Digital Camera Review

PhotoAxe
9 January 2008
  • Excerpt: The Canon A series gained in January 2007 a new member with a higher number of megapixels: 7 MP A560. An important improvement is the fact that this model is capable to take 500 shots before the 2xAA batteries rune out. The system now includes Face-detection autofocus, Higher light sensitivity, ISO 1600 (but this is not very useful) and Red-Eye correction in PlayBack Mode. Compared to A550, the LCD is 5 inch wider.

Build None of the cameras in the A500 series were very good looking, and the trend continues with this one too.

  • Summary: Another strong entry into the compact camera market by Canon, the A560 produces similarly high quality pictures to its sister model, the A550, and this time around they have packed in Face Detect, which will be a big selling point for some users.
  • Pros: Brilliantly low noise, Great colour, Speedy, Face Detect
  • Cons: Pictures a little on the soft side, Some haloing, Burst mode not quite on par with other models

  • Conclusion: La Canon PowerShot A560 è una fotocamera dal prezzo accessibile e idonea per i neofiti della fotografia. Comoda, piccola e maneggevole, presenta un display discretamente grande, varie modalità di scena, funzione specifica per la realizzazione di ritratti e funzioni per il ritocco. Manca, invece, lo stabilizzatore di immagine. Altri lati negativi sono la memoria interna e le batterie in dotazione, alcaline, non molto performanti.
  • Pros: Processore DIGIC III; Maneggevole
  • Cons: Poche funzioni creative; No stabilizzatore di immagine; Memoria interna scarsa

  • Excerpt: Firma Canon regularnie odświeża najpopularniejszą linię swoich aparatów – serię PowerShot. Od mnogości modeli może się wręcz zawrócić w głowie. Testowany przez nas dłuższy czas temu model A540 doczekał się następcy. Jest nim PowerShot A560 . Jego poprzednik nie wypadł zbyt dobrze – problematyczne okazało się sterowanie, niezadowalająca była jakość zdjęć i był zdecydowanie zbyt drogi. Już patrząc na papierową specyfikację, nie sposób nie zauważyć, że wymieniono sporo.
