Summary: I was looking for a camera that had the following criteria: Universal AA or AAA batteries (not proprietary Li-ion or other technologies), HD Video recording Lightweight, "easy to use" and not that many buttons, and inexpensive This camera meets my criteria. (1) Here's a further explanation of the battery issue: The problem with Li-ion batteries is that once a manufacture changes the battery pack and no longer makes the battery it becomes hard to find.
Summary: I bought this camera to take on an upcoming trip to Yellowstone. I need something small, but not too small, and lightweight. The digital display is a bit grainy, but the actual quality of the pictures seems to be good. Also, the older I get, the more trouble I have seeing small print and small screens, but this screen seems to be just the right size for my aging eyes.
Summary: I needed a camera that does not Use rechargeable batteries. It auto detects macro, and my job requires that I photograph detail numbers, the detail is great. These low end digital cameras do a better job than the point and shoot ones at triple the cost. Perfect pics. No Learning curve.
We have had very good experience using the camera.

Summary: The Cannon Power Shot A 1400 is a nice small camera that my wife can easily carry in her purse and takes very good qu8ality pictures. I like the USB port to move pictures to our computers without removing the SIM card.
Summary: I love this camera! It's got plenty of perks for a low price, starting with plenty of great shooting modes...or just leave it on auto and enjoy the simplicity of great pics with zero effort. The 720p video was a pleasant surprise as well, I find myself using it much more than I thought I would, it makes videos a breeze to shoot.
Summary: It is a simple to use camera which is why I bought it. It was for my mom who isn't super electronically savvy so I wanted a camera that mainly just took pictures without all the complicated features. I don't think she has used it much yet as nothing major has happened since I bought it for her but I think she will like it and find it easy to use.
