Good camera for beginners

Brought the camera on Thanks Giving. The Menu and settings are bit difficult to understand, but once you know it well, it gets going. Excellent camera within an affordable price range. Strongly Recommended

Lens error reoccurring

I purchased this camera for my wife and was very disappointed to get a "lens error" and have the camera turn off on me within 2 weeks of purchase. We're hoping it's a one-off and will exchange the product. Other than that I thought I was getting a great camera for a great deal, but what good is a brand new camera that has a lens issues? We'll see... I'll repost and see what happens.

from Nashville, TN

I just bought my Canon camera last night. The only thing I was wishing came with it was the USB cord to my computer. I think I'm going to enjoy this camera.

Good purchase


from Reno, NV

The camera is great, I have always been a Canon fan. The pictures are clear and perfect for our use. I do wish the cable that attaches the camera to the computer would have been included. Over all I will purchase again

Not the best for photo's.


from Martinez, Ga

Bought a Powershot SX400is based on reviews and price. I was looking for something smaller then my normal dslr to use on a cruise. Seen that it does photos and video which is a plus. Well after buying and trying to use it to get up to speed here is my review. Small light weight which is a plus. No view finder and I find it hard to look at the screen outside and actually see what I want to take photos of. Zoom is so-so. Photo quality is average. Now I also tried the video and it is ok. Still miss the view finder and zoom is. NO hard copy of the manual, which makes it hard when you are away from the computer and want to change something to do without going thru the menus. So I guess for the price I got what I paid for, a video camera as I will go back to using my dslr even on the cruise.

A camera I like


from Seattle, Wa

I bought my Canon Power Shot Sx 400 IS primarily for work, but once I started using it I really liked it. It's compact, easy to hold, takes great clear photos, the telephoto range is super. The only complaint I have, is I wish the flash automatically popped up. It tells you you need it, but...overall I would highly recommend this camera for any use.

Better than my SX100


from SE Oklahoma

Really appreciate this camera's crisp clear pic's, and the videos are a great improvement over the SX100. Taking pics of my Rhode Island Red Bantams, reveals the brilliant colors, and brings out the individual feathering. Taking videos, I can zoom in and out while filming, and the camera is able to keep a crispy clear pic throughout. For a simple to use camera, it does an excellent job.

from Randolph Center, VT

Although I am not a professional photographer this purchase has been a great purchase. The camera is helping me take the best shots I can. I live in the country and take lots of pictures of the scenery near and at great distances, animals and birds. I have even been able to get some great pics of spider webs, ice on tree limbs and frost on windows. I am also getting great pics of my two beagles. I highly recommend this camera to anyone.

I replaced my less than 2 ...


from WA

I replaced my less than 2 yrs lessor Canon camera due to a back fall and it flew and broke. I upgraded to the SX400IS kit and am hoping it is easy to learn the new features and does well as a hobbist for everything, people, pets landscapes. I have placed trust in the Canon brand and hope their support and the camera itself gives me the clarity i am looking for. So far it is one BIG gripe I have and that is THERE WAS NO MANUAL BOOK WITH IT I had to do it from online.

not what I thought


from Gulfport Ms

I thought this camera had some short video time on it. It's a good camera but my phone does just as well and i can do video on it. Not as pleased as I thought I'd be. I guess I should have done a little more research on it before I bought it.
