  • 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. I've decided to upgrade it with Power Shot A1400 hopping to get more detail in my pictures.
  • 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

  • Summary: This camera looks great and has a good view screen. However, it did not come with a complete user manual. After opening the camera and only having a basic information sheet giving instructions on how to put the batteries, we discovered no operation manual, no connection cord to download pictures onto your computer and no memory card. It would have been nice to have known these things were also needed for this camera and that they were NOT included in the price.

  • Summary: The camera takes really good pictures and the batteries are still going strong. But you have to push the button to take the picture really hard, hold it down a long time and before you can take another photo you have to wait fo rthe flash to recharge. I have read the instructions and made changes to the settings to see if I could change this but had no success. It's hard to get those quick snapshots of the kids and grandkids. This is definately going back to the store.

  • Summary: This camera was purchased as a gift for out young daughter. The camera is a very good size and has very good picture quality. However, the camera itself feels a bit cheap. The biggest issue with this camera is that it does NOT ship with a rechargeable battery. It comes with AA size alkaline batteries.

  • Pros: Uses AA batteries Has viewfinder Light and small
  • Cons: Viewfinder is to small to be useful Photo quality is marginal Too slow to focus and re-set

  • Summary: I returned it. It would be smarter to pay more and get something better than this. The new phones take pictures as good or better than this one.
  • Pros: Small Light Price
  • Cons: Slow Not Great Pictures

  • 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. Also, you can't download the pictures to your computer, unless you go buy a separate cable. I've owned several cameras and right now I am going back to my old one and see if I can return this one.
  • Pros: clear pictures
  • Cons: no computer download cable, no users manual included, have to download manual from canon website

  • Summary: After you take a picture you have to stand there and wait for the flash to charge. Didn't come with a cable to download your photos to your computer. Had to take memory card out of this camera and put it in my old Cannon camera in order to download. For the life of me, I couldn't get the strap on the camera because the hole was smaller than the strap. Bought a week ago, going back today.
