Summary: This camera is a good compromise in price between the next level up and the lowest level of camera. However, the imaging chip is the same 1/2.5 CCD as can be found in any other comparable camera.
Summary: i'm by no means an expert in photography, so if you want a review of all the little thetechnicle aspects, you'll have to look elsewhere. if you're an average joe like me who just wants to know whether or not the camera is user-friendly and, well, works, hopefully i can help.
Summary: Very good pictures with this Canon camera. indoors & outside . Easy access to battery & SD card . Low cost for the fine pics you get. Auto mode works . Good reviews on the web on a560. Fast transfer to computer via USB. Lots of setting to improve pics if you need too.
Summary: You couldn't ask for much better for a point and shoot camera. The controls, menus and functions are very friendly and the quality of the image is very sufficient for my use. I don't plan on making posters.
Summary: I bought one of these for my 11-year old granddaughter. She found it easy to use and takes great pictures with it. It has also survived a number of drops from when her brothers borrowed it. It is fairly small and light, so it is easy to carry around, but it feels good in the hand.
Summary: Although my "big" camera is a Canon, I went through several cameras before finding this wonderful gem. I was very fond of my seriously outdated Nikon Coolpix, so I tried a new one - every shot was blurry, and I have a very steady hand (years of taking low-light and no-flash shots).
Summary: OK, I'm married to an electronic engineer camera geek. He has more cameras than anyone should, and I'm not allowed to touch them. Taking pictures is a major operation for him, but he loves it. I bought this for myself, so that I would have a point and shoot camera in my handbag, ready to use.
Summary: We bought this camera after our Kodak died. This little gem does just what it's supposed to--take great pictures. The menu takes a little getting used to, however, it's worth reading the manual. So far, the camera has performed as expected and well worth the money spent.
Summary: ordered this camera because my HP suddenly had serious focus problems, was really pleased that it had a view finder as old one didn't. All pictures I've taken have turned out great, having the view finder makes a world of difference in bright sunlight. Blow ups to 11x14 are clear and accurate.
