not that great

Summary: I found good reviews about it and bought it But found its not that great reason I did not like - auto focus is not quick to focus - you really need stable hands else it does not give sharp image ^ i have found this to be a huge problem
Summary: I have used Canon P&S cameras for years and have always been pleased with them - excellent images, easy to use and the price is right. I have an SD1000 and wanted something small with IS so selected the SD1400IS. So far, I have been less than impressed with the camera.
Summary: I purchased this camera several months ago as my everyday point and shoot. I wanted something small and compact that I could easily access and take quick photos when I didn't want to lug around my slr.
Summary: This camera is very pocketable and takes good pictures most of the time - exactly what I was looking for, for a "social" camera. Only major complaint is the camera majorly underexposes shots in outdoor lighting about 20-30% of the time.
Summary: During the first few weeks I got this for my wife, I felt like I made a mistake. I've been shooting with a Nikon D90 DSLR for a couple of years now, and once you go in that direction, any P&S will pale in comparison.
Excerpt: Pros: Small, handy camera, easy to operate, good price. Not bad low light image quality. Good videos. Good quality of construction. Looks like a good toy. Cons: See at the "Problems" section below.
Summary: I had the SD1100IS that lasted me a few years and recently broke. I got this SD1400IS and don't like it as much as the SD1100IS. It is nice that you can edit the videos straight from the camera, but the zoom button is quite hard to use.
Summary: After receiving the 1400 I did side by side tests with a Canon 1300IS and a Panasonic DMC-DS5. Based strictly on picture quality the 1400 finished last. If you like the tiny size of this camera stick with the 1300.
Summary: I bought this camera on a whim after my old canon SD1100 got wet at the beach and I needed to take pics asap. Was surprised at all the features on this samll camera. The outside also looks great. Small & compact and easy to use.
Summary: I have owned several Canons. The sd700is was the camera I dropped in my pocket and took anywhere. When it broke, I bought the sd1400is. It is a nice point and shoot camera. One of the reasons I liked the sd700 so much was the choice between the led screen and an optical viewfinder.
