Excerpt: I purchased this camera several years ago, and I must say even with the newer models that ahve come out I think it is still one of the best. The camera by canon always takes fantastic pictures and rarely takes a picture I feel like I need to delete. The …

Summary: I received this camera for Christmas back in 2003, shortly after it came out. I loved it, great size, great pictures, overall good camera......UNTIL a week ago. I to received the dreaded "memory card error" message that many, many other Canon Camera owners have received.

Summary: I bought an S400 seven months ago and was very happy with it. Recently, however, it stopped working without warning. When I sent it in to the factory service center, I discovered something very troubling about the camera that had I known earlier would have caused me to not purchase it.

Summary: Before you buy the S400, you should know it's already over one and a half years old, so it's in the process of being discontinued -- hence the low price on Amazon and elsewhere, even though this list price is still high.
