  • Conclusion: I've purchased this camera as an upgrade for my old (and still unbeaten) Canon Power Shot A560 (7.1 Mega Pixels). I've taken over 5000 pictures (family and work) with the good old A560. Now that I've tested few other new cameras it this same class, I appreciate A560 more than ever before.
  • Pros: Simple controls/menu, easy to use, optical viefinder, powered by aa batteries
  • Cons: Poor image quality, Poor Low-Light Performance, Flimsy Construction, very small camera body, very small optical viewfinder

Disappointed in picture quality

  • Summary: I have an old Canon Power Shot SD450, rechargeable type battery with "5.0 MegaPixels". The battery is bad so instead of ordering a new battery I thought this camera with "16MP" and 2 AA batteries would be great. No recharging batteries and 16MP would blow my SD450 away. WRONG!!

Too grainy

  • Summary: Gave camera for wife to use. 'Point and shoot' I told her...well, the pictures that did come out okay are too grainy and cannot be enlarged without extreme distortion. All shots were taken indoors so that may be the problem, the lighting and all.

Disappointed

  • Conclusion: I just got it today and does take good, clear pictures, but it is necessary to have the users' manual to figure out some of the functions and it is not included. You have to download which is tedious and takes a lot of space on your computer.
  • Pros: clear pictures
  • Cons: no computer download cable, no users manual included, have to download manual from canon website

Disappointing

Patrick Swerkstrom, Amazon

  • Summary: Canon is gradually eliminating all of the control features that have made their point and shoot cameras my first choice. Since I first started with my Canon A95, they have eliminated manual control of shutter, aperture, closeup mode, and others.

Good for bright light only

  • Summary: Having just put this thing through a week of testing on a trip out to California, I can report and confirm that this camera only takes acceptable photos in good light. However, I was able to get a nice night time shot in a well-lit marina by turning off the flash and setting the camera on something...

Going back to my A710

Barry Frank, Amazon
29 May 2013
  • Summary: Wanted an upgrade since my A710's USB connection seems to have died. But the A1400, while lighter and sleeker has several *downgrades*. These include: a menu search for the macro setting compared to the single button on the A710; no option for setting your own shutter speed &/or aperture; and poor...

Leider nicht so positiv, wie erwartet

  • Summary: Ich habe mir die Kamera aufgrund der vielen überwiegend positiven Bewertungen schicken lassen, habe es aber nicht geschafft, scharfe Fotos zustande zu bekommen. Die Bilder waren bei gutem Licht (Außenaufnahmen) stets verwaschen.

Fonctionne aves des piles AA...

Mika, Amazon
17 August 2014
  • Summary: Il est écrit nulle-part dans les caractéristiques que cet apn fonctionne avec des piles AA...c'est dépassé... vous devrez acheter en plus un chargeur + des batteries AA. Il est assez épais ( place pour le logement des piles ) A un viseur, c'est rare de nos jours, du aux écrans toujours plus grands...
