Summary: I bought it hoping it would be a back up for my Sony cyber shot, It's not ! I'm a very experienced photographer who was hoping for a clean easy to access camera that would be tough. The workmanship was cheaper than expected from Canon, and controls are more awkward and cute than functional.
Summary: Pros: - easy to use - touch screen - sleek design - high megapixel - decent low light - Price - Zoom capacity Cons: - shutter lag - touch screen (when activated, i kept pressing it by accident so it kept taking pictures by accident..
Summary: Bought this camera because the Fujix20 isn't available in the UK yet! And I needed a camera ASAP, since I'm studying abroad and all. This camera does the job. With awesome sunlight you have great pictures. Love the wide angle lens on this camera.
Summary: If you are looking to take pictures mostly outside and in good lighting in general this camera will serve you just fine. I purchased it hoping for some decent low light performance especially since it boasted a nice bright f2.8 aperture. That's where the camera just would not perform.
Summary: The camera looks and feels nice. I bought it to take pictures of a cruise trip with my wife, but ended up using my Phone to take more than half of the pictures due to the lower "than what I am use to" quality of the pictures. 16mp camera vs 8mp Phone camera... My phone beat it every time.
Summary: i was a bit disappointed by the A3400's image performance. I took the same shots with 3 cameras and hoped the canon would top the others. sadly, this camera performed below standard. it may be ideal for beginners, but not for me, and while the images were not horrible, i expected better from Canon
