Cutting edge technology

9-point AiAF makes sure that you can keep even off-centre subjects in sharp focus.
Face Detection AF/AE/FE

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.
