Canon PowerShot A570 IS

“The PowerShot A570 IS and PowerShot A560 bring the leading Canon technologies powered by DIGIC III within the reach of all consumers,” said Mogens Jensen, Head of Canon Consumer Imaging Europe. “These two advanced cameras have features with the potential to vastly improve the quality of everyday photography.”

The PowerShot A570 IS and PowerShot A560 feature:

* 7.1 MP CCD image sensor
* 4x optical zoom lens (35mm equivalent: 35–140mm f/2.6 W–f/5.5 T)
* Optical Image Stabilizer (PowerShot A570 IS only)
* DIGIC III image processor and iSAPS
* Face Detection AF/AE/FE
* ISO 1600 and High ISO Auto
* Popular Special Scene modes on Mode dial
* 2.5” LCD screen with optical viewfinder
* Lens accessories (PowerShot A570 IS only)
* PictBridge and Print/Share button


Both cameras feature Canon’s own DIGIC III image processor. This smart, efficient processor enables features such as Face Detection AF/AE/FE and advanced Noise Reduction Technology. The improved Face Detection system uses new algorithms to detect faces further from the camera than ever before. Detecting up to nine faces, Face Detection AF/AE determines if a face is the main subject of the scene and sets the appropriate focus and exposure, if the flash is activated Face Detection FE sets the flash level so that the face is correctly exposed. The system also enables easy Red-Eye Correction in Playback, automatically detecting and removing unsightly red eye to leave a natural looking portrait without the need for a PC or editing software.

DIGIC III with advanced Noise Reduction Technology makes possible the use of High sensitivity ISO 1600 – another first for the PowerShot A-Series. High ISO speeds are useful for capturing scenes in low light conditions without risking the loss of the scene’s ambiance by using a flash. High ISO Auto prioritises higher ISO settings to enable the use of faster shutter speeds – reducing the risk of blurred images in dark or fast-moving scenes.

Ease of use

DIGIC III is complemented by a range of technologies that ensure high quality photography with minimal effort. 4x optical zoom lenses incorporate Canon precision optics to get the best results from the 7.1 Megapixel sensors. The PowerShot A570 IS features optical Image Stabilizer technology, ensuring shake-free images in low light conditions and at full zoom. Both cameras feature a 2.5” LCD screen, making it easier to frame tricky shots or share image playback with friends.

To aid quick and easy access three popular scene modes – Kids and Pets, Indoor and Night Snapshot – have been moved to the Mode dial. The PowerShot A560 has 14 shooting modes to cover many shooting situations, including Beach, Snow and Fireworks scene modes. The PowerShot A570 IS adds Underwater mode – for use with the optional waterproof case accessory – and creative options that enable manual control of aperture and shutter speed settings. In total, the camera offers users 19 shooting modes. The creative potential of the PowerShot A570 IS can be extended with a comprehensive range of accessories that includes telephoto, wide and close-up lens converters, and slave flash

    I would like to learn more about what is described as a “comprehensive range of accessories giving uses a choice to explore the creative side of photography.”

    I know that once I master the basics of this new digital point and shoot, sooner or later, most likely sooner, I will want to try and be “creative.”

    So if I am going to invest in this new camera, I might as well get what I am most likely to use down the road and that will be sooner rather than later.

    So do please send me additional information to when I buy the camera, I make the right choices.

    Thankyou for your help.

    Also, if I am not on your mailing list, please add my name so I will get information from you on a regular basis. I am in the process of switching over from film to digital (now I am a retired photojournalist) and with grandchildren I want to photograph and old slides and prints I want to take a look at and maybe/probably do something new with them, I want to be prepared to do the things I know I will want to do. Also, it is our plan… my wife and I … to set up a “digital darkroom” in one of our rooms at home and so we are studying what products to buy and of course we want to learn how to use them correctly so that is another area of our interests. We already have several trips booked up and I can see me wanting to write articles again and submit photos on these new subjects that will come into our lives. So photographically, I want to get prepared. As I say, digital photography is a whole new world for me. If you have a publication, review, book , web site etc you think I ought to know about, I will be happy to be informed about it. Should there be something you may wish to put in the mail to me, my postal address is: Alvin Glanzberg, 162 B Heritage Hills Drive, Somers, New York 10589. Somers is a suburb just north of New York City.
