Great camera, great low light shooter, last of the OVF Sony cameras

kcm_enterprises, Ebay

  • Summary: This and the A580 are probably the last of the OVF camera's from Sony. I ended up returning this one because the Play button didn't work most times when you pressed it, but I then bought an A580 (same as this only 16 megapixel instead of 14) and absolutely love it. You won't go wrong with this camera.

Buyer beware of Sony Support.

  • Summary: This will probably be my last Sony camera purchase. I owned an A350 for a number of years and not once had Sony updated the firmware on that camera. I now own an A560 and see the same lack of support for this camera as well. I've owned a Sony LCD TV for just over a year now and it has had over 10 updates. I owned a little Sony MP-3 player for a couple of years and that had over a dozen firmware updates.

Stay Tuned.......

  • Summary: Waiting to see if Amazon is as good as their word. I'll provide more feedback after playing with it for awhile. The primary reason I bought Sony was it is supposed to be compatible with Minolta lenses or at least lenses made for a Minolta. Incompatibility is a non-starter, as far as I'm concerned. I bought this model for the video capability - that way, I'm down to one camera instead of a camcorder + my wife's camera and my camera. Stay tuned, folks....

Excellent Camera

Stew, Amazon

  • Summary: Everyone seems to be paying the extra $150 and going for the a580. I didn't see enough reason to do so and I have no regrets. This camera is phenomenal and a great introductory camera with room to grow to intermediate. My girlfriend and I considered the 290/390 but we wanted something that we wouldn't feel would only last us a year or two because we would feel restricted as we learned photography more and more.

Sony DSLR A-560

  • Summary: This is a really great camera. It's fast, easy to use and takes amazing photos.The camera is loaded with many features found only on more expensive products. The price to value ratio is there in a big way.

Pros and cons...

Serg "Serg", Amazon
15 March 2011
  • Summary: Pros: - fast speed shooting - combines 7 shots in 1 in SCN - Hand Held Twilight ("stable night shot") mode - impressive. I have Sony HX1 which has 6 image burst with processing in 1 (it's a little faster than a560 though). And I never will buy another camera without this feature because with that you will avoid blurry pictures especially in night time. And you do not have to carry around a tripod.

Great Camera, but be careful who you buy from

5 March 2011
  • Summary: The a560 and its big brother the a580 are excellent cameras. Take a look at the review by Tim Naff under the a580. This is a most excellent review and as a practical matter the cameras are identical but for the megapixel. http://www.amazon.com/Sony-DSLRA580L-Camera-18-55mm-F3-5-5-6/dp/B0048CE3VS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1299334269&sr=8-1 There have been some problems with inventory of Sony cameras, in particular the a33, a55, and a580.

espera mas que efectiva!

Leo Fagiano, quesabesde.com
15 January 2012
  • Summary: Tras esperar varios años para recargar mi vieja A100, llego finalmente la A560 . Estoy mas que satisfecho con el cambio. Una cámara robusta, con funciones de avanzada (HDR, Video HD, DR+5, Display rebatible y Live View) Se extraña algún tipo el enfoque durante la filmación y el enfoque de corrección directa que poseía la a100. Un poco incómoda la rueda de manejo (demasiado arriba) Lo demás es un avance significativo en las reflex de Sony.
