Conclusion: Mydaughter Stephanie wanted to give me anicer gift of acamera I could use better and use for special occasiions when theGranddaughter andGreat come for visits a good picture taking cameralike the1400 powershot canon it says and does it all....love this gift so much!
Pros: good battery life, Good Low-Light Performance, Nice features/settings, excellent image quality, durable, Bright LCD, Lightweight/Portable, Simple controls/menu, easy to use
Summary: I wanted an inexpensive alternative to my wife's expensive Canon 60D. A camera that we could take everywhere without the constant worry about it being damaged, lost, or stolen. I mainly chose the A1400 because it has a viewfinder. Overall, I have been happy with the camera.
Conclusion: I bought this camera a couple of days ago to replace my older point and shoot camera. For me it was hard to read the box to see what was inside. The store clerk opened the box. Having no usb cable or card was not a problem, because the quality was put into the camera and not the accessories.
Pros: Good Low-Light Performance, Nice features/settings, excellent image quality, Simple controls/menu, easy to use
Conclusion: This camera is really good in bright sunlight. The shutter speed is good, and it's very clear and sharp. If you are planning to take pictures inside or in low light, do not buy. It will be grainy and a low shutter speed. The setting are easy to use, but can be tricky to get just right.
Pros: great in bright natural lighting, easy to use, sharp images in bright light, affordable
Cons: horrible quality in low light, setting can be a bit tricky, flash is horrible in low light, battery lasts only a little while
Summary: Took me months to get the hang of this little guy. At first couldn't take a decent picture or figure out what to adjust or where. Had downloaded the manual, but it wasn't helping me a lot. Menu items appear for some things and disappear for others.
Summary: With an old Mavica disk camera on its last legs, I finally bought this digital. It seems to work fine, with what I've figured out so far. Instruction sheet is grossly inadequate; it mainly just tells you how to turn it on (in 12 languages) and has diagrams that don't match actual unit.
Summary: Sale price was already down to $59. I had an Amazon credit for $20 too. So I only paid $39 for it. Hard to complain at that price. This replaced a 7 year old Canon that I had. I played around with all the settings for hours until I was able to get the best pictures possible.
Summary: This is a True Canon with excellent optics that produces very good photos. I will create this review in the form of comparison to another Canon point and shoot I use-A720IS. SIZE: The 1400 is small enough to fit in a shirt pocket. It gets lost in a normal small carrying case.
Summary: I bought this camera for my mom. She is not very tech savvy and always stuck to buying those disposable cameras. But after being picked on by the family this thanksgiving, I decided to bring her into the 21st century.
