Default thinking of buying the 560. need help!!!!

Hello all,

I'm thinking of buying the 560, but I've heard that a canon model might be better since it has the low light AF assist feature. Does the 560 have this function? Does it make a difference? This is my first digicam purchase. Most of my pics will be indoors. Any advice is appreciated.

It appears that the D-560 does not have the AF assist feature.

No, the 560 doesn't have the AF assist, but for under $10, you could buy a laser pointer that would solve your problems, que sera, sera...man, aren't we glad that our current problems focus on how to get our digicams to perform better...imagine yourself in a foxhole in Iraq and you haven't had a shower or a nutritious meal in 10 days, not to mention you have the runs....
blessings, Johnny

You would shine the laser pointer on the subject in dim light and your camera would be able to focus on that spot, apparently...blessings, Johnny
