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: 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
Summary: Price is okay, however actually quality is middling. Focus in low light is hit or miss. Takes some getting used to holding because of small flash unit where your hand usually holds. Small camera, lots of features, just not as sharp as previous cameras.
Summary: Got from Amazon through Beach Camera. The case received was not the Canon one shown, but instead a Beach Camera belt case that is twice the size of the camera. Not worth returning since I bought is on sale for a Christmas gift, but I will be getting a different case.
Summary: This is the third Canon PowerShot camera that I have owned. I found this camera more confusing and difficult to operate than the first two cameras. Also, after having had this camera since Dec. 4th, today, Dec. 21st, I received a notice advising me that this camera is being shipped!
