mixed feelings

Becky, Amazon
8 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought this camera with the intention of carrying it with me all the time. I never expected it to be the same quality as my DSLR, but wanted something portable, that if it got ruined, wouldn't make me cry. Best thing about this camera - a viewfinder. I've only printed out 4x6 photos so far, but the pic quality is just fine. Similar menus as my other Canon Cameras, so easy to get the hang of , even without a manual.

Problem with battery notification

KB, Canon
1 February 2014
  • Conclusion: This camera takes great photos, but it only takes about 50 photos before the low battery light comes on. After about 100 photos it no longer works due to low battery. However when I test the batteries, they are still good. Only Alkaline batteries work; others last for about 5 photos. I read one other review that reported this problem, but haven't seen a solution. I guess I need to send it in to see what's wrong.

Good starter camera

Dianne, Staples

  • Excerpt: Good if you don't want to take multiple pictures in a short time frame. Flash has to charge between pictures. Auto focus is good and the picture quality is decent.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Large Clear LCD
  • Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, Poor Flash

Great basic point and shoot digital came

AdriSue, Staples

  • Excerpt: The Canon PowerShot A1400 camera is a nice starter digital camera. The flash is slow to recharge between photos but the camera size and photo quality is good. I bought this camera for my 71yr old mother-in-law and she was quick to master the zoom and focus for photos but needed a little extra instruction for the menu options and features.
  • Pros: Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Buttons small, FLASH SLOW TO RECHARGE, Lag / Shutter Delay

Great camera except Battery life

Lhasa Dude, Staples

  • Excerpt: Great for carrying around. Fits in shirt pocket but the battery life is a killer. About a half dozen flashes kill the two AA bateries.
  • Pros: Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Short Battery Life

Web site support DREADFUL

Nadine, Canon

  • Conclusion: MAIN PROBLEM: The camera was not sold with a USB cable. I purposefully went to a camera store so I would get everything I needed -- but no luck. So if you're buying this camera, don't say "I want to buy everything I'll need to use the camera," since that request is not adequate. On the second trip, the sales associate did say that most cameras included the USB cable but I already knew that was the case with most products and that's why I didn't specify "USB cable.
  • Pros: Lightweight/Portable, easy to use
  • Cons: no usb cable, poor web site, poor instruction manual

Beware - read the product description carefully

maggie hodgson, Amazon
23 November 2013
  • Summary: Perhaps I didn't read the product description properly and if I didn't then it's my fault. The camera did not have manual but you can find one on-line. Not as convenient when you are actually using it and you need to know something. There was no lead to download the pictures. Fortunately an Apple lead did the trick for us. The camera itself has the advantage of being very light and normal battery powered and the pictures turned out as expected.
