It’s Your Choice: LCD or Optical Viewfinder

An Optical Viewfinder Makes Capturing Images Simple and Easy
The PowerShot A1400 digital camera gives you a choice that's getting increasingly hard to find on digital cameras today. It's equipped with an Optical Viewfinder in addition to the LCD screen. Many photographers prefer this classic, familiar option that lets you simply hold the camera to your eye and shoot.

The camera's big, bright 2.7-inch LCD screen gives you a wealth of important information about the shot. However, using it to compose and focus requires that you hold the camera away from your body. Many people do this with one hand, arms away from the body, effectively creating camera shake that can distort a shot. Using the Optical Viewfinder helps ensure that the camera is held steady, and is an easy, familiar alternative to composing shots on an LCD screen. It’s also useful in bright conditions when it might be difficult to see the monitor.

The great thing is that from shot to shot, whether you use the Optical Viewfinder or LCD screen is your choice.

High Resolution, Highly Advanced Performance

16.0-Megapixel Image Sensor with DIGIC 4 Image Processor With the PowerShot A1400 digital camera’s 16.0 Megapixels of resolution, your images are rich and clear, with textures and tiny details faithfully reproduced even at the long end of the 5x Optical Zoom. This high level of resolution is ideal for creating the largest prints, and allows you the flexibility to blow up and crop any section of an image to express your creativity. The DIGIC 4 Image Processor powers the camera’s advanced systems and features, ensuring fast, reliable performance with low battery consumption.

DIGIC 4 Image Processor
Canon DIGIC Image Processors have set the standard for functionality and performance since their groundbreaking introduction in 1999. With each successive generation, DIGIC Image Processors have brought elevated performance and powerful new features to PowerShot digital cameras. The DIGIC 4 Image Processor has ushered in a new level of picture quality and accelerated processing, making possible features such as high-speed continuous shooting, HD video and Face Detection Self-timer.

Zoom in on Wider, Steadier Shots

5x Optical Zoom with 28mm Wide-Angle Lens
The 5x Optical Zoom (35mm equivalent: 28 - 140mm) in the PowerShot A1400 digital camera delivers outstanding optical performance and versatility. It gives you a great range of potential images from a single location, which is perfect for sporting events and other occasions when your shooting stance is fixed, or times when moving in too close might disrupt the action you’re trying to capture. The lens’ 28mm wide-angle perspective puts more image in every frame for dynamic, exciting shots.

A Smarter Camera Means Better Photos

Smart AUTO
Photographers of all levels appreciate a camera – especially a go-anywhere compact digital – that takes the hassle out of capturing beautiful images. The PowerShot A1400 gives you Smart AUTO – sophisticated Canon technology that makes getting that great shot as simple as pressing the shutter button. Smart AUTO automatically detects scenes by assessing various factors in both the background and the subject. Detected scenes are analyzed using 32 predefined shooting situations. The camera then makes optimal settings to ensure the best possible image capture when shooting still images. Smart AUTO also includes Advanced Subject Detection, which allows the camera to detect and track non-human moving subjects like animals and vehicles. With Smart AUTO, all you have to do is frame your shot and capture away.

With a simple push of the dedicated movie button, you'll be able to instantly record every moment in motion. 720p HD video is smooth, vivid, and beautifully lifelike, making it an ideal way to capture special memories.

A1400
*Actual frame rate is 29.97 fps

Dedicated Movie Button for Easy Video Capture
It's never been easier to shoot videos with a PowerShot digital camera. To make shooting video as natural as snapping pictures, the PowerShot A1400 has a dedicated movie button. No need to plan ahead, no need to search through menus on the LCD screen; when you feel a moment would be best captured in 720p HD, simply press the button and recording begins. The camera is always ready to shoot stills or video whenever you want.

A1400

Say Goodbye to Blur

Digital IS
Digital IS beats the blur that mars many shots by recognizing the main subject, then automatically applying the camera shake correction that best suits the situation. If the subject is a person, blur reduction processing is performed. For landscapes, cityscapes and other still scenes, the camera takes three quick successive shots and composes them into a single clear image. If the subject is moving, the camera takes 3 successive shots, then automatically saves the clearest image.

A1400

A Charge that Lasts as Long as a Memory

New ECO Mode Helps Reduce Power Consumption for Longer Battery Life
The PowerShot A1400 takes energy conservation to the next level with ECO Mode, which provides more shots per single charge through LCD monitor and camera power management. ECO Mode can be activated via a dedicated button for easy power preservation when an outlet is unavailable or the moment is too exciting to put the camera down. ECO Mode quickly wakes the camera from sleep when a button is pressed so you won’t miss the moment. When the fun with family and friends runs late into the evening, ECO Mode on the PowerShot A1400 makes sure your camera keeps up.

A1400

Power Wherever You Are

AA Battery Powered
Recharging batteries can often be an inconvenience, especially when traveling in foreign countries. With the PowerShot A1400, you'll never need special power adapters or chargers because it's powered by two AA batteries that are widely available around the world.

More Ways to Get Creative

Scene Modes
Scene Modes are fun, easy ways to give your shots a distinctly artistic feel without the need for any extra lenses and filters. Super Vivid heightens and saturates colors for eye-popping intensity. Poster Effect eliminates gradations between colors for an illustrative feel. Miniature Effect enhances perspective in a scene, blurring the top and bottom to make it look as if it were created with miniature models. You can also make a quirky portrait using the Fisheye Effect or add a beautiful single-tone effect with Monochrome. Toy Camera Effect simulates a vintage look as it capturing the photo using a "toy" or pinhole camera.

Help You Won’t Need Help to Find

Help Button
The PowerShot A1400 digital camera is designed to be fun and easy to use, even for beginners. A Help Button on the camera’s exterior brings up the help menu any time you need it, right on the LCD screen. From here, you can scroll through a variety of topics that answer your questions with clear explanations, offer helpful shooting advice, and show you diagrams highlighting the position of any buttons you’ll need.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Impromptu Camera

Pros: Decent shots. Small and lightweight. Good battery life. Tough. Takes cheap, common AA cells.

Cons: Cheesy shots with flash off. Some softness and inappropriate curves at the edges of shots.

Other Thoughts: I got this one specifically to be kept with me on my belt for impromptu shots. In good light and with the flash produces very good pictures. With the flash forced off in low light the cheese shows through, as images soften and colors become gaudy. This is just what I expected of this camera considering the size and cost. It complements a bigger, better superzoom that's too big and heavy to be kept with me all the time. It's tough- it fell from its case to a solid concrete floor, about three feet, and bounced. A little plastic tab popped partway out and I pressed it back. There was no visible damage, not even a scuff, and it still works perfectly.

5 out of 5 eggsNice all-around point and shoot

Pros: Similar nice build quality to earlier PowerShots, familiar interface, optical viewfinder, discreet body, quiet, and yes, it takes nice pictures.

Cons: flash recharge feels a little on the slow side, good enough for our needs but be aware

Other Thoughts: Picked this up for my mom, to replace an old PowerShot A520 (that one's still working great, but the early MMD/SD cards it used are getting harder to find now). The A1400 certainly has better specs and capacity than the old model, while the controls were kept close enough that it only took a few minutes to get comfortable. Battery life seems to have improved quite a bit.

This camera leaves out a few necessities. You'll need to hunt down your own SD card and mini-USB cable, and the user manual is only available online. (Once you get that manual, it's written and laid out nicely, much improved over earlier editions.) A quick setup sheet is in the box. The missing bits are reflected in the lower price, but keep them in mind if this is someone's first camera or an away-from-home purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice camera

Pros: This is a very nice camera for $85 when it was on sell at Newegg. It is small and lightweight. It has alot of functions on it, most I still have to experiment with. The "steady" shot is a must with a camera. It captures shots well while in motion. The display is large considering the camera is so small. Overall, for the $85 I paid for it, I'm quite happy with my purchase. Thanks again Newegg.

Cons: Camera did not come with memory card. But I knew this when I bought this camera, so no eggs off on this review.
Not a con----I purchased a 8gb memory card when I bought this camera, both from newegg. That's about 2100 pics that the card will hold.
