About the Canon A1400

Canon PowerShot A1400 is a compact, easy-to-use camera that retains the familiar feel of a classic point-and-shoot. Its large grip is easy to grasp and comfortable to hold, while the Optical Viewfinder is ideal for capturing photos in bright sunlight. A 16.0 Megapixel sensor and the DIGIC 4 Image Processor deliver stunning images with amazing detail. The 5x Optical Zoom with 28mm Wide-Angle lens brings you in close for grand shots, and Smart AUTO makes shooting beautiful images effortless, analyzing the scene and choosing the optimal settings from 32 predefined shooting situations. When the fun is on the move, capture it all in 720p HD Video using the dedicated movie button. The PowerShot A1400 runs on two convenient AA-alkaline batteries, readily available when and where you need it, and the new ECO Mode conserves power so you will still be ready to take photos long after the party is over.

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.

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.
