Take the camera about 6 inches away from the card. Use P mode on all automatic settings, but use the MF flash (press the close-up tulip twice, on the bottom of the navigation wheel), set to 15 cm (use left and right buttons to adjust). Try putting the camera on a mini tripod and the card in a holder to minimize camera shake. Also, ensure that the optical image stabilizer is on. When viewing the taken picture on the camera, zoom in as you would when taking the picture to see the picture at full resolution.

Problem downloading photos


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com )

How do I delete all photos on the memory card


Go to the menu and access your memory card and then reformat, it will then verify that you will lose all pics and just click on yes...then card will be empty.

When downloading photos to the computer from my powerShot A560,must it always go back to the complete memory card, and not from where we left off.


You could use a card reader instead of the camera. Then, you could choose and highlight only the ones you want to download.

It's very hard to troubleshoot software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. But why put up with the headaches of bad software in the first place? Please see this article, as it describes the use of a card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your videos and photos.

My pictures turn out blurry


try using a camera tripod or leaning against something sturdy, like a building or tree, especially when really zoomed in! As the light dims, the camera will choose a slower shutter speed and/or wider aperture (in automatic) to produce a picture that is not too dark. As a result, the camera may take blurry pictures, especially if the camera or subject moves. There is a setting for landscape, which uses a very small aperture, and just about everything from close to far away can be in focus. Hope this helps!

Lost my Canon PowerShot A560 disk


As a solution I highly recommend that you forego the old cable to the camera route, and instead consider a card reader to download your photos to your computer. Card readers are very inexpensive, much much faster downloading photos from the camera, do not use the camera's batteries during download, and are much less prone to file corruption of the photos during the download.

You place the camera's card in the reader, and your computer sees it as a hard drive. You simply copy/paste or drag/drop your photos onto your hard drive. For all of these reasons, most professional photographers utilize card readers exclusively. Really, you'll save yourself a lot of headache. Here are some examples from Amazon. Also, don't be fooled by the cost. some of the cheap ones work just fine. Go by the reviews. Also make sure you get a reader that is stated capable of reading your card (particularly if you have an SDHC card):

For international readers, here's another source for card readers (free international shipping too :-)
