Reviews and Problems with Canon PowerShot S400 / IXUS 400 / IXY 400
Showing 1-10 of 500
Replacement for a broken camera; have custom dive case for it.
13 July 2013
Summary: I bought the S400 because I had one (actually 2) that broke and I have the custom underwater enclosure for it. There are clearly better digital cameras available, but now I can record scuba experiences again without investing hundreds of dollars in a new enclosure.
Summary: I like this camera because it takes fine pictures and does what I expect in a job situation.I need this camera to make accurate time/date stamped pictures required for the type work I repairing houses. I like it because it is small compact and reasonably easy to use.It was also cost effective for a job site where tools are always around.
Summary: i own a CANON and have not been disappointed with my photos. I purchased this product for my son and new daughter to have for their new live together. Looking forward to many great photos to come.
Summary: The zoom function on the 400 almost eliminates clarity. I had much more success with the Powershot 200. The higher number does not indicate a higher performance in my experience. Some of the less used functions, like reviewing movie segments, are not intuitive. You almost have to be a camera buff to make this thing work. I am a recreational user only so perhaps this assessment is not quite fair. I much preferred the 200 for my purposes.
Summary: Product arrived before the estimated arrival date, in excellent order, ready for use, as described in the Amazon ad. Very satisfied. Did not need the accessories as we already had them from a previous camera that had become unusable. Was purchased for high school photo class use with an underwater housing. The price was affordable for the kids.
Summary: We have had this camera for nearly six years, and it is still going strong. We recently passed it on to our kids who use it for filming videos for processing in iMovie and uploading to YouTube. Even with the abuse they give it, this Canon is holding up very well.
Summary: I started with the original Elph, and have upgraded on the line ever since. This camera is a WORKHORSE. It's self sealing, so no need to keep it in a case, unless you care to keep it shiny and scratch free. It's durable, takes great photos and is handy to capture some rough video. If you upgrade the card, you can take about 5000 photos & 10 video (enough for most family vacations without downloading during your trip).
Great Camera, Amazing Canon Customer Service, Free Repair!

Summary: I bought this camera new in 2004. I still use it and love it today! It is compact and easy to use. And it takes beautiful, sharp, richly colored photos. Recently it started having a memory card error. I called Canon, and they fixed it for free. They even paid for shipping. I was honestly blow away by the customer service. I just sent the camera in, and it was fixed and returned within about a week. Now its working perfectly, as before.
