Summary: Do not buy a camera from this company. Came with no way to return it if defective. The batteries and chip to run the camera were removed. The lens was very dusty also. Don't know if it works because even though we put batteries in from the house the camera will not function without the chip.
Great basic camera with little to no grainy images

Summary: I bought it to create close-up photos of text on machinery. Just a few minutes of experimenting with the (easy to use) menu, and I had perfect photos, anywhere from 2ft to 3inches from the subject. The zoom is excellent at automatically focusing on a subject at any distance. I also took photos of my property from approximately 100ft distance, and those photos also turned out just great.
The camera size works out great , 16megapixel great , but sizing needs sma

Summary: This is the third small camera I have bought. I had an E550 that I dropped in Turkey -- replaced it with AX550 that work great for about a year, it just quit -- bought the AX560 about the same as the AX550 -- took it thru Cambodia, Vietnam worked great except 1 night I forgot to reset it -- couldn't get pictures that night --- next day reset it and worked fine- I use as a backup for places I don't want to take my bigger camera.
Summary: I bought this same camera at Walmart for about 70 dollars on black Friday. I also purchased a class 10 SD card. This allows for quick pictures taking especially on a moving subject in sports mode. The battery life isn't to bad. I use recharge batteries. The only problem I've notices is the blink detector. If the subject is looking down the camera detects a blink. I am sure there is a way to turn it off. It takes great pictures, quickly.
Summary: It worked for about a month, then the low battery warning came on and the camera went off, permanently. I changed the batteries, only to have the low battery warning come on immediately and the camera shut itself off. I tried several different brands of batteries, nothing works. When I did some research, I found out this is such a common problem with this model, Fujifilm no longer makes, sells, or supports it.
Summary: ~ The battery and memory chamber door broke on my Canon PowerShot SX 100 and the cost to repair was about $100.00. I paid $70.00 for this camera from Wal-Mart. The Canon is about five years old, has more wheels, switches and setting than you can poke a stick at, does a good job of taking pictures, but requires a keen memory to remember all the settings. Plus, it is a little too large to carry comfortably so I went looking for another camera.
Summary: I bought this same camera at walmart for about 70 dollars, very glad I did. I loveee this Camera! I really like some of the features such as Sweep panaroma, Soft skin mode, Baby mode, Sunset fireworks snow beach party flower text, Sport for fast moving pictures, Night and Night tripod, it has natural shots, natural light, Landscape. also has smile, face and blink detection. YOu can change the image size and image quality. The quality of the pictures/videos are great!
Summary: I want to make it clear up front, I bought the AX560 refurbished, which may, or may not make a difference in my review! Simple review, it works VERY well, and is small, and light! Detailed review, I am still exploring the features of this camera, but have noticed odd glare, or purple lines/haze a few times on the screen, BUT have since bought and used brand name rechargeable batteries, and have not noticed this wierd effect.
Can't rotate pictures, can only post one picture at a time

Summary: I am really disappointed in this camera. I wanted a camera that used regular batteries as I've had issues with the rechargable cameras (namely, no charge when you needed to use the camera). There aren't many cameras on the market now that use regular batteries. This camera has a much faster shutter than my old one, which I liked, but imagine my surprise when I went to post pictures on Facebook and found that I can only post one picture at a time.
