  • Summary: The Zoom Barely works have to play with it over and over gain. I bought this camera to replace the same model my wife broke that I use for my real estate business. Zoom barely works.

The canon powershotA560 is great- for a year

  • Excerpt: I bought this camera very shorty after it was released.  I was going on a vacation and desperately needed a new camera as my other one was at least 5 years old and not doing so well.  I had read many reviews before settling on this particular model, and everyone had very positive things to say about it. I received the camera, and began playing with it so I could get the feel of it before my trip.  It is pretty user friendly, and I could figure it out very quickly.

"This has been a very frustrating camera!"

  • Pros: The pictures it takes are great, when it works.
  • Cons: 1. The lens covering sticks open, and the zoom lens gets stuck half way out. 2. It doesn't turn on, or doesn't stay on... fresh batteries make no difference. 3. Had to find the "delete" function by trial and error... not in manual or help. etc.

"Se descompuso (IT STOP WORKING)"

  • Pros: Una muy buena fotografia y facil manejo, buena por el precio que se pago. Siempre he pensado que en camaras digitales Sony y canon son lo mejor y asi habia sido hasta que dejo de funcionar.
  • Cons: De repente dejo de funcionar, ningun golpe, humedad o algo que la pudiera danar, solo salio el lente y no volvio a retraerse, la pantalla se puso negra, y marca un error.(Error obj. Reiniciar camara) el cual en internet parece ser algo comun.

Canon PowerShot A560 Digital Camera

L.Robertson, Rate it all!

  • Summary: The 560 worked great through the first set of batteries. Then, the problems started. New batteries would only work for a short time, and then the low battery light would come on. I tried various brands, including rechargeable batteries, but the problem persisted. Finally, I searched online and found MANY other people with this series having the same problem. Buyer beware!
