Canon PowerShot A560 Digital Camera

R.Coombs, Rate it all!
7 November 2008
  • Summary: This is the 2nd Canon a-series camera I've had. Both have had problems relating to the lens cover. My daughter also had problems. Although the camera takes great pictures, the lens cover problems makes this series less than desirable. On the A560, the lens cover requires a finger nail assist to open. It's annoying after a while. My next camera will not be a Canon.

Good Camera but OH DEAR batteries cost a fortune

Amazon Customer "Sally007", Amazon
18 July 2011
  • Summary: I bought this camera as my second with a screen, my first did not last very long, it takes very good pictures (I am an amateur) for me but Oh dear the batteries only last for about 4 - 5 shots and then switches off and wont restart till new batteries are installed. When I test the batteries that I take out they are full of charge, I just wish someone could tell me what to do, I have even tried taking the batteries out between shots and reloading them for the next shot,...

Not great

Mr. T. P. Ardill "tomclapping", Amazon
7 July 2009
  • Summary: I have been a bit disappointed with this camera. Despite having 7 mega pixels the lens quality is poor, so it just doesn't take that good quality pictures. Also mine seems to have a fault which makes it think it is going to run out of batteries almost as soon as you have replaced them. Need to switch on and off again to rectify.

  • Summary: Yo tengo una y tres veces la he enviado al Servicio Técnico, dos veces se tapo el obsturador y una vez la dejaron mal armada en el Servicio Tecnico. De Talca tuve que enviarla a Santiago ya que en provincias no la arreglan. Muy mala máquina.

Gute Fotos allein reichen nicht

Markus-M. P., Amazon
27 November 2007
  • Summary: Die A560 macht schöne Fotos und das schnell und unkompliziert. Besser als das andere Kameras für mehr Geld können. Das stelle ich nicht in Abrede. Aber nur das allein reicht nicht. Das von der Größe sehr gefällige und optisch auch schöne Kunststoffgehäuse zieht Staub und Fusseln magisch an. Nach nur einigen Tagen hatte ich schon den ersten Staub hinter der Displayabdeckung. Wie wird das erst in einigen Monaten aussehen, wenn Staub u. a.

Canon PowerShot A560 Digitalkamera

Steffen Dittrich, Amazon
6 November 2007
  • Summary: Ich besitze die Kamera seit Mai 2007 und habe unzählige Fotos und Videos damit gemacht. Hab auch die Sonderbildfunktionen und verschiedenen Modis genutzt. Aber zufrieden stellt mich dieses Produkt nicht. Gut finde ich nur den optischen Sucher, die Möglichkeit Standard-Akkus/Batterien zu verwenden, die Videoqualität und dass große SD Karten verwendet werden können.

Letztendlich enttäuscht

Ralph Clasen-Hoffmann "Reitlehrer", Amazon
26 September 2007
  • Summary: Leider kann ich mich den positiven Äußerungen nicht anschließen. Die Canon ist mittlerweile meine 3. Digicam (Casio und Medion) und macht mit Abstand die schlechtesten Bilder im Verhältnis zum Kaufpreis, der noch bei 270,-Euro lag (nicht der aktuelle). Kaufgrund war neben dem Einsatz normaler Akkus (die Medion habe ich deswegen abgegeben) der bessere Zoom und die Möglichkeit, kleine Videos aufzunehmen.
