There is a lot to like about the seven megapixel Canon Powershot A560. O.K. so it is too large for a pocket, but it makes up for that in terms of overall picture quality. It also possesses a slightly longer than standard zoom lens. Recommended.

Responsive performance; slightly above-average lens.

Images plagued with artifacts and fringing; extremely noisy at high ISO settings.

This camera's solid performance can help you forget that it doesn't have many bells or whistles.
