Awesome Camera for price and ease of use

I got this camera for my wife...She just loves it because it is lightweight and small yet produces excellent results. she is still getting used to it but she is doing rather well for a non-photo kind of person. I Got the refurbished kit because of the two year warranty that Adorama offered and We are really happy with the purchase...the kit came with an extra Battery, case and 4GB class 6 card!

Canon is the better choice


This camera will let you change the format of the photo from normal to; sepia, black and white, Vivid, intence red or green and light skin tone or darker skin tone. It will let caterlog the photo or photos. In addition to the picture quality this camera has many other features that you can change including piture size. The new ones are Wi FI capable and the soft ware is easy to use and wonderful to use for all you photo needs.


Canon PowerShot SD1400 IS


Megapixels and photo quality good. Like a lot of people, I've neglected to read the instructions so it's taken me a while to figure things out. I wish the camera had a view finder rather than just an LED screen. Also, no matter how I set the camera I can not take a photo when I hit the "take" button. It is always delayed regardless of the "action" setting or not. I wouldn't recommend it for taking photos of your kid making hoops or touchdowns as the moment would be gone. However, it takes fantastic photos of most everything else. I can get seriously great up close photos of flowers with spectacular color.

Great Product!


I love this camera! I brought it to England with me to document my entire trip! Definitely worth it! :) I love Canon and will continue to stick with it!


A wonderful little machine.


By far, the best pocket camera I've ever owned. Very fast power up to first shot. Automatically adapts very well to various shots and light levels. Only 4x zoom, but it's perfect for every day.

Not happy


I always want to keep updated with the new canon cameras, so I have been a loyal canon customer for 10 years and have maybe had 6 different cameras. I have always been happy with their products except for this one. I purchased this camera 3 months ago and was really excited about the light weight and sleek design especially for the price that it was going for. The pictures don't come out as clear as the other cameras I've used in the past. One night for my birthday all the pictures came out horrible, my iphone took better pictures than the camera did. This camera really made me want to change and see other camera companies.


An Excellent Little Camear


This camera is a gem. It takes great pictures and offers a range of settings that make being creative and capturing great shots a joy. My camera has been put through the paces this summer, and it has fared incredibly well. So worth it.

While I love the small, ...


While I love the small, sleek shape of this camera, I do not recommend it. Mine broke 4 times in just over a year (lens issues that were not my fault). Luckily I bought an extra warranty through the store I purchased the camera from. Each time the malfunction was deemed unreparable and I received a new camera. I appreciated that but seriously-- what a waste! I'd much rather buy a better quality camera that doesn't break, thereby saving me 4+ trips to the store and saving 4 products. Also, I was never impressed with the focus on close-up objects-- sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't.

Do not buy


Software disc did not load, poorly constructed, access to ports is clumsy and seems like access panel will break easily, the access panel to the battery compartment already broke and I only opened it twice, labels for menu and other function keys are printed in a small font in a dark color so the keys are very difficlut to read especially if taking photos at night or in dim lighting. This was a gift, I would not have selected this camera.

Best Camera EVER


This is my third or fourth digital camera, all of the previous cameras have been of various makers. But this by far is the best camera I have ever had. I have taken it on multiple vacations, with varying settings from busy traffic to landscapes and every picture comes out clear and perfect. I have recommended this camera to my friends, my parents and even my co-workers. I would highly recommend this camera to ANYONE who is interested in beginning to learn photography or anyone that just wants to take a great picture in any setting. If you get a chance, check out the color features, which allow you to choose one color to focus on while all the other colors are blacked out. This is probably the most amazing extra the camera has to offer, but again it was something i found after i bought the camera. So just another plus. Again... HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO ANYONE... Easy to use, easy to maintain, great photo quality and some additional advancements for those interested in photography.


Surprisingly good


I am surprised that such good pictures can come from such a small camera. I've only used a few features so far and like everything I've used. My only complaint is the packaging. I was not aware that the camera had no memory and that it had to be bought separately. Just as toys are marked "Requires 2 D batteries - not included" the camera box should have printed in easy to read letters "Requires memory card - not included". The camera as sold is not usable. But nevertheless I still think it's a terrific camera for the price.
