The PowerShot A3400 IS 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.

5 out of 5 eggsMy wife uses it more

Pros: It takes pictures, it's 16MP and a touch screen. Pictures and video are pretty clear.

Cons: I'm not a big fan of the battery pack that it uses, I would be more happy using the Lithium AA's.
Flash is extremely bright, my wife reflects said light, crazy.

Other Thoughts: For the price we paid, I say it was a good investment.
I would barter 8 lbs of bacon for it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat cam!

Pros: Renders shots quickly and very good quality. I bought this for my sister and she loves it. Stylish design and great build quality. The different shooting modes are awesome, love the fisheye and pin-hole effects. Didn't test the video, but i'm sure its on par with the rest of the cam.

Cons: I kind of wish it had a viewfinder to help conserve the battery, but most modern point n shoots don't have them.

Other Thoughts: I only buy Canon cams and they are tops. Quality, features, and price are unbeatable. Definitely recommend this cam for the price alone. I saw this at a dept. store for 179. This cam feels like it would cost 200.

5 out of 5 eggsAnother great PowerShot

Pros: Lightweight, decent quality shots.

Cons: None that i can think of at the moment

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my mom and she loves it. It seems i've bought everyone a PowerShot but me lately!

You really can't go wrong with Canon's PowerShot line

If you're considering a slightly cheaper different brand you should probably think again. It's worth the extra $20-$30

This is the 2nd PowerShot i've gifted (last one for gf) and they both perform excellent. Both still manage to pull off high quality shots that really justify the brand name.

I paired this one with a SanDisk Ultra 16GB SDSDU-016G-A11 & have no issues to speak of.

5 out of 5 eggsGood? no...GREAT camera!

Pros: 16MP (4608x3456) for large pictures (other options are 8M 3264x2448, 2M 1600x1200, 0.3M 640x480, and widescreen 4608x2592), 720p or 640x480 standard def video, touchscreen, touch the screen to take picture feature, 5x opt zoom, up to 20x with digital zoom, ~16 picture settings but also auto feature, does a good job managing the auto setting, rechargeable battery, small/compact, clear pictures for those who can stay still (unless you're in some sort of hurricane), has the red target where it'll light up the general direction that you are taking your picture, comes with a small stylus, customizable self-timer, has a slot for a tripod/stand, it turns itself off after inactivity and you can set how long it is, you can start taking pictures LITERALLY within 2 seconds of turning it on, fast transfer to computer, plug and play and works with Windows XP x64)

Cons: doesn't come with any SD cards, so have one (although mine came with a free one and i have a few lying around anyway), i have to look at the battery every time i put it in (which way it goes in, same with SD card), the menu beep is somewhat annoying, but you can adj the volume and it won't affect the volume when listening to videos

Other Thoughts: i didn't know where the zoom was, but when i found it it was easy to use (the zoom is the little circle around the picture taking button on top fyi), i think this camera came out in february 2012 along with the A4000, i would say that it is semi-touchscreen, sometimes you can touch and sometimes you cannot, but the buttons are easy to use and easy to learn.

You have to take the battery out to charge it, i don't believe that the usb cord charges it

Considering the price and deals I got with this, it is considerably better than the more expensive A4000 as the features are nearly identical (except for the zoom) and the A3400 has a touchscreen - which makes it cooler. I don't know why they did not implement it into the A4000 though.. This camera exceeds all of my expectations and I highly recommend it.
