5 out of 5 eggsGreat Camera

Pros: Great camera, clear pictures, many many options and features

Cons: Low battery life, and it claims that it comes with 2 rechargable batteries, but it does not.

Other Thoughts: I HIGHLY recommend getting a charger and atleast 4 rechargable batteries with this camera

5 out of 5 eggsIt's all good!

Pros: This is a great camera at a great price. NewEgg did it again!
Unless you're a pro this camera is more then enough. Has the ability of auto or manual setting. Pictures are of good quality. Get a bigger SD card and some rechargeable batteries and you're good to go. Software works great.

Cons: Lack of a battery indicator untill you're low on charge and need to replace.

Other Thoughts: You won't find a better camera anywhere for this price on the net.
As usual NewEgg beats 'em all!
UPS service is getting better.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great quality for the price. I needed a cheap camera for occasional snapshots to use to post to the web and to send out in emails for work, so this was perfect.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: Dissappointed that UPS is the cheapest freight carrier NE uses now b/c we've had notoriously bad service w/ UPS where I live. "Guaranteed 3 Day" shipping took 5. But that's UPS, not NewEgg. Still love ya NewEgg!

5 out of 5 eggsa great canon camera

Pros: Canon has some great cameras, and the A400 and is not exception. LCD screen is nice not to small nor that big. There are tons of features with this camera. all together the zoom is about 7.0x. There is a movie mode with sound def a plus.Can even do black and white videos. A/V jack is nice to watch the videos and pictures on a tv instead of looking at the lcd screen. Def a must buy.
New Egg Rules!!!!!

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsGreat cam

Comments: This is my first digital camera and it works relly good. The bad thing is read and write time is slow. I have the blue one. This is good for the price. For batteri life it's relly good if you have nice recharge batteries. mind last 400shots.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat buy, excellent picture quality

Comments: This is a must have point and shoot camera. Photo quality is EXCELLENT! Bought 4 already, our managers who are not so computer savvy have taken quite a liking to this very easy to use camera. Time and date stamp on photo is only available in 1600 x 1200 mode. Others report battery life is short; turn off the LCD monitor when you don't need it to save power. This is easy to do. Big plus: uses 2 common, easy to get, AA cells.

5 out of 5 eggsGood beginners digicam

Comments: A great camera for someone just getting into the use of digital media. The pictures are clear and crisp and the movie function is always a plus. Only a few issues: the lack of rechargeable battery is sad since the camera (with flash and lcd on) really eats up batteries. The optical zoom is also less than superb, and the 16 MB memory card it's shipped with is lacking.

Overall, a good buy.

4 out of 5 eggsFor this price? Lovely!

Comments: I got it on sale, of course, which made it even better. :) 3.2MP is more than enough for casual use. Pictures are good, though slightly grainy in low light and at high resolutions, but within tolerable levels. Very pleased with, of all things, the fact that the memory card 'pops' out easily, somethine some cameras do not do well at all. A terrific buy for those whose lives don't warrant a $xxx camera!
