Canon PowerShot A3400 IS Review
18 July 2012
Summary: The camera is priced in India at a street price of Rs.9,695. This camera looks really good and does not resemble a camera priced in the sub-Rs.10,000 category. As for the features, the touch sensitive screen can be a useful addition as one can find accessibility through the interface quick and simple. When it comes to the performance, the camera does well in outdoor shots. However, the shots indoors were not that great.
Excerpt: The PowerShot A3400 IS is one of six all new A-series cameras Canon introduced for 2012. Priced between $109.99 and $199.99, the A-series is designed for novices and includes a number of great automatic features and even a brand new Help Button to make even the most technophobe among us confident with this new gadget.
Summary: The Canon PowerShot A3400 is the mid-range A Series PowerShot for 2012, but it has one unusual feature that sets it apart from its stablemates - a 3 inch touch screen. Until now if you wanted a touch screen Canon compact you had to look to the up market IXUS range, the A3400 IS brings touch screen control within the reach of those on smaller budgets.
Pros: 3 inch touch-screen., 5x stabilised optical zoom., Small and slim, light and sleek., 16 Megapixel Sensor., Dedicated help button.
Cons: Poor High ISO noise performance., No optical zoom while in movie mode., Poor continuous shooting performance.
Conclusion: Looking towards the overall performance, it can be concluded that unless you are dead-set on a budget-priced touch screen camera, it's best to avoid the A3400 IS. You don't even have to go that far to find an alternative- Canon's A4000 IS is just few bucks more and gives you slightly better image quality and a more versatile 8x zoom lens. If you are really in the love with the idea of a touch screen, the Samsung SH100 is slightly better.
Excerpt: Once upon a time the Canon IXUS models were the good looking and well-made range of digital compact cameras. Now, it seems, Canon have shifted that pattern of focus and included some of the PowerShot range too. We're not talking about the top of the range £400+ PowerShot models, we're talking about the A3400 IS, a £120 budget digital compact point and shooter.
Excerpt: The A3400 IS was launched in February 2012 as part of Canon's range of PowerShot cameras, as well as the A810, A1300, A2300 and A2400 IS. It is available in black, bronze, pink and white for around £120.00.
Pros: Built-in help guide, Available in a good range of colours, Good creative modes, Images have really good colour reproduction, Easy to use
Cons: Only 720p HD video recording, No fast continuous shooting, Image detail isn't sufficient for large prints, Screen difficult to see in bright conditions
Summary: It used to be that Canon s smallest cameras were the Ixus brand. When this PowerShot arrived I had to look at the box to be sure it was a PowerShot as it is truly tiny and only the Canon Ixus offerings have been this small.
Conclusion: Si estás buscando una cámara sencilla, fácil de operar, con buena calidad y a un precio justo, esta Canon es ideal para eso. No solo podrás tomar fotos de tu vida sino también videos en alta definición.
Pros: La calidad de las imágenes. El diseño bien cuidado. La cantidad de efectos disponibles. Capacidad de impresión directa.
Cons: Podría grabar en Full HD y tener salida HDMI para televisiones de alta definición. La pila podría durar más para tener más disparos.
