Replacement for a broken camera; have custom dive case for it.

mjkoenig124, Ebay
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.

Old model, but still excellent

Gadgester "No Time, No Money", Amazon
13 March 2004
  • 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. That said, this is still probably the best consumer-grade digital camera on the market today. Let me expound. First, 4-MP is the perfect resolution for day-to-day photography.

Best Value Period - Ultra compact digital camera

Daniel Limbach "Reader, writer, gadget guy", Amazon
16 January 2004
  • Summary: ... this camera is the best compact digital on the market. Sure, there are 5 megapixel compact cameras out now, but the cost is still too high. 4mp resolution makes great 8x10 prints, and lab-quality at 4x6 and 5x7. The combination if its tiny size, beautiful results, and stylish design is unbeatable at the current prices. I take it everywhere and hardly notice it. It's like carrying a deck of cards in my pocket. Most good hi-res digital cameras are much bulkier.

The right choice (but consider these extras)

John Cox, Amazon
12 January 2004
  • Summary: After much research, I got my girlfriend this camera for Christmas, and I can now report that I made exactly the right choice. She was one of those "I like film" girls...two weeks later it's like, "What's film?" She's loves it. I love it. In fact, I love it so much I'm thinking about buying a second one for myself. So obviously I'm recommending this camera. But I have a few suggestions for you folks who are about to hit that Buy Now button.

Excellent camera, highly recommended over the Sony DSC-P10

BobbyDigital, Amazon
30 December 2003
  • Summary: I just bought the S400 from Dell for $xxx a little while back and was considering the Sony DSC-P10 at the time as well. I figured I'd write up a review on amazon to help other people out that are in the decision making process. Price: ----- The Sony DSC-P10 is 5 MP vs. 4 MP for the S400. The difference in resolution may immediately sway your decision to teh DSC-P10, but I would think very carefully.

Excellent compact camera

Omar Siddique, Amazon
23 December 2003
  • Summary: There are plenty of reviews written on the qualities of this camera in and of itself, so I will not go on about its small size, well designed interface, excellent optics, and so forth. I will, however, compare it to the S330, which is the older, 2MP/3X optical model that was the previous top of the line Canon elph.

Hope this helps

Daniel Limbach "Reader, writer, gadget guy", Amazon
6 December 2003
  • Summary: This camera got the highest point in image quality (to human eyes) among digital cameras PC Magazine tested in its Sep. 2, 2003 issue. Here are things that I didn't know before my purchase. Hope this helps. Type I CF card: The box came with SanDisk 32MB card, not with SimpleTech that Canon sells on their web site. As compatibility seems to affect speed of write/read to/from the card, I was a bit concerned about buying SimpleTech.

Four and Half Stars really (A pretty good camera)

Y. Leventhal, Amazon
12 November 2003
  • Summary: I did quite a bit of research before purchasing. I wanted a camera that produces high quality images, is very compact and easy to use. I have a Sony digital camcorder. Naturally, I was initially inclined to buy a Sony. Besides, Sony cameras (of the same price range) seem to have more features and more pixels than Canon cameras.

Wonderful little camera

V. Block, Amazon
24 October 2003
  • Summary: This is my 3rd digital camera, having owned two bulkier Olympus models previously. I was looking for a smaller camera that would be easier to carry. After much research I chose this Canon S400, and it's just about perfect. The display is clear and easy to use. The included rechargeable battery and charger are easy to use, very small, and the battery charges fairly quickly after the initial charge.
