Easy to use
Commonly used Special Scene modes are positioned on the PowerShot A560’s Mode dial, making it easy to take tricky shots indoors, at night or when photographing kids and pets. The one-touch record/review button enables quick and convenient review of your images.

7.1 Megapixels
A 7.1 Megapixel sensor produces sharp high quality photos, enabling large prints and detailed crops.

4x optical zoom
The 4x optical zoom lens lets you get close to the action without sacrificing quality. It combines with digital zoom for 16x magnification.

Cutting edge technology
Canon's DIGIC III image processor delivers high-speed camera performance, superior colour rendition and cleaner images at high ISO speeds. iSAPS technology uses shooting scene information to optimise camera settings before a shot is taken.

9-Point AiAFb
9-point AiAF makes sure that you can keep even off-centre subjects in sharp focus.

Face Detection AF/AE/FE
Face Detection AF/AE/FE ensures superb people shots by automatically detecting up to 9 faces in the frame and setting the correct focus, exposure and flash level. Face Detection Technology also enables Red-Eye Correction in playback mode. Fix red-eyes in the camera and make them look natural again.

ISO 1600 and High ISO Auto
PowerShot A560’s high ISO setting enables you to take excellent flash-free photographs in low-light conditions. High ISO Auto prioritises high ISO to enable faster shutter speeds, reducing the risk of blurred images.
