Summary: I bought this camera for my daughter for Christmas. It had great reviews and she loves turquoise. The camera looked like it took good pictures but when she looked at the display to take pictures, the display looked all grainy and it was hard to tell what she was taking a picture of. BUT then again, maybe there was just something with her camera. I don't recall seeing any other reviews about it. I ended up returning it and getting a Fujifilm FinePix camera for her.
Summary: I have not had this camera for long, about a month or two, but it ranks low on the cameras I have used. I normally stick with my DSLR, but I bought this one to have in my purse and to use for quick videos. The video quality could receive 4 starts, but it goes out of focus very often and the only way to re-focus it is to turn the camera off and then back on. The picture quality leaves much to be desired, I will never use this camera for pictures.
Shouldn't it take better photos than the 12.1 MP Canon PowerShot?

Summary: I bought the Canon Powershot A2400 IS 16.0 MP Camera because I needed a new camera and really liked the last Canon I owned. I washed my Canon Powershot 12.1 MP and it stopped working. I was shocked by the quality difference and not in a good way. I expected a higher quality camera. This camera is not only slower, but the picture quality is worse. I adjusted the resolution and it is still not producing the same quality of photos.
Summary: Bought this camera from Amazon during its' Black Friday event last year, to replace my water damaged Casio compact. Having now used the camera for some time now I have to give it a thumbs down in comparison to my old Casio camera. Just about every aspect of this camera ( apart from flash on or off), is auto. So no pre sets for different scenes.
Summary: Why do camera manufacturers all change their products within months. I loved my 970IS camera, but within a couple of years it developed a problem and died- at least the mechanism that focuses failed, and I could not afford repairs, hence I bought the above model A2400 IS- it is not bad as cameras go but it is nowhere near as good as the original it was intended to replace. I thought from blurb it would be better, but I fear it is pretty ordinary.
Excerpt: у нас у самих фотик Canon Power Shon SX100 - потрясающий, могу только хвалить, особенно после сравнения с A2400...так вот, к сожалению, после 5 лет исправной службы уронили из корявых рук, да сильно...полетел объектив, пришлось срочно искать замену, взяли у свекра A2400... небо и земля, конечно! уровень шума просто зашкаливает (почти на всех фото и прямо россыпью), четкость вообще никакая (у SX100 можно регулировать)...избаловал нас SX100!
Pros: маленький, удобно в руке лежит, легкий, большой экран
