Canon PowerShot A560 review

It's a very light, nicely designed, and very simple camera. Got it for my 11-year-old for Christmas but have enjoyed shooting stills and very decent video since it was opened up.
Best of all, my daughter has got it completely sussed and loves using it. Of course it works perfectly with iPhoto, so that's half the battle for her. The screen is good... no problems with daylight washing it out. Too bad it doesn't pop out and swivel like my old G3, but that's progress, I guess. Battery life is merely okay, but Amazon has a special on the camera with a free Canon battery charger (including 4 rechargeable NiMH batteries) for about $135. I added a 2Gb Kingston card and totaled out the package for just $150 including shipping.


None so far, except she now has 3 Megapixels more than my own point and shoot... still, the old G3 manages to take better shots and is much more controllable.
