4.0 out of 5 stars Great little camera.
Very pleased with the camera.The picture quality is excellent both in still and movie modes. I chose this camera particularly because it has a viewfinder. Very useful in the sunlight ! Cannot understand why there are very few cameras with this feature. I gave it a 4star rating purely because of the operating manual which is somewhat lacking in info. Nevertheless I would...

This review is from: Canon PowerShot A1400 Digital Camera - Black (16 MP, 28mm Wide Angle, 5x Optical Zoom) 2.7 inch LCD (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
Very pleased with the camera.The picture quality is excellent both in still and movie modes. I chose this camera particularly because it has a viewfinder. Very useful in the sunlight ! Cannot understand why there are very few cameras with this feature. I gave it a 4star rating purely because of the operating manual which is somewhat lacking in info. Nevertheless I would recommend this camera to anybody as it is easy to use and small enough to fit into almost any pocket.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little camera, 29 Nov 2013

A compact camera with a screen AND a viewfinder - who would have thought? Takes sharp focus shots with the minimum of effort; but also has the full range of digital options you would expect from a camera this size. Have used it outdoors in all weather conditions (and I do mean ALL). Zoom meets most needs and the unit pops inconspicuously into a pocket - great for those more formal occasions.

5.0 out of 5 stars great, 14 Jan 2014

This review is from: Canon PowerShot A1400 Digital Camera - Black (16 MP, 28mm Wide Angle, 5x Optical Zoom) 2.7 inch LCD (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
I got this for my wife's xmas present, her previous one didn't have a viewfinder and she couldn't see the screen if there was the merest hint of sun. But this has solved all that and it is easy for her to use on the basic settings. I think it would benefit from a user manual Canon should realise that compact cameras are most often brought by the beginner end of the market and they often need more help than the more experienced with the most complicated camera. but that is the only complaint, the camera is great although made of plastic it has canon's attention to detail and the pictures are sharp and crisp.

Small, neat, portable and best of all it has a view finder so I can take pictures in bright light and without having to search for my reading glasses.

5.0 out of 5 stars If its canon it has to be good., 31 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Canon PowerShot A1400 Digital Camera - Black (16 MP, 28mm Wide Angle, 5x Optical Zoom) 2.7 inch LCD (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
As a long user of canon equipment I had no hesitation when I bought this camera.
It is for a slow learning disabled son so I wanted some of this cameras attributes.
Yes it has a large viewing screen at the back to use to focus but when you have an
unsteady hand, a sharp photo can be difficult.
This is where this camera excels with its viewfinder.
To use it with the camera pressed against your face ensures a better result.
Thanks again to Canon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent little camera and above all it has a viewfinder., 15 July 2013

Because the camera has a viewfinder it can be held properly against the head where it is steady unlike most compacts which have to be held at arms length which is an unsteady position.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the price suggests, 14 May 2013

The Cannon A1400 proved to be even better than I expected considering the price this camera is selling for. It does everything I want plus lots more and the viewfinder is an added bonus.
