Get something better

Samuel Harvey, Amazon
22 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought this because it was on sale. Now I know why it was so cheap. Pros: Lightweight. Large LCD screen. Great battery life. Retains settings after powering off/changing batteries. It is really small and lightweight. Cons: Picture quality is unsatisfactory. Feels cheap.

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.

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.

  • Summary: I recently purchased this Canon Powershot A1400 digital camera here, even tho it was cheaper elsewhere and available here. This camera replaces a very similar Canon Powershot camera I have now.

Disappointed

  • Summary: Received the procduct on schedule in good condition. I purchased as a camera I could take on my walks since it has a 16MP and can fit in your pocket but am not impressed with the clarity of picutres. However I compared them to the ones from my Canon T4i.

  • 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.
  • Pros: Lightweight/Portable, easy to use
  • Cons: no usb cable, poor web site, poor instruction manual

Just a snap

rosie the riveter, Amazon
11 March 2015
  • Summary: I had a Canon A630 for years. It worked well enough but I found the resolution lacking at 8MP. I thought I would upgrade to a newer Canon at 16MP. The picture resolution is definitely better. In addition, there are function keys that allow for near/far, miniature, toy camera, and poster size images.

not as good as its predecessors

aglaecwif "Old English Lin", Amazon
24 May 2014
  • Summary: I bought this after having a Canon A1200 stolen, but this has none of the flexibility of the old camera in terms of choice of modes. This is just a very basic point-and-shoot camera. I also have to say that the focusing when close to objects is poor despite it having a macro.
