Introduction Sometimes it seems as though I'm fated to end up with a complete collection of Canon's long-running PowerShot A4xx series. They're popular beasts, and quite cheap second-hand, so they tend to appear both in job lots and in the occasional part-exchange deal. Curiously enough I hadn't...

Price - quality - ease of use

Lack of an optical zoom

As a long time fan of Canon digital cameras I was keen to get my hands on the Powershot A400. Having used the A310 for sometime, the A400 was an attractively priced upgrade and I'm pleased to report that with a little coercion Santa delivered the goods. So, four months down the line, what is my...

If you've read my other review on the Sony Cybershot camera that I've ended up using lately, then you'll know that this Canon PowerShot A400 has been the digital piccy-taking love of my life in recent years! Now I'm not a technical person, so the fact that this camera has 3.2 mega pixels was not...

“ If anyone can....”

Neat, chunky and solid.Great pictures

some gimmicky features

I confess, i don't own this camera. My brother does, however, and he lent it to me for the weekend and i liked it so much that I decided to review it here for your edification! It's a little belter! I have several cameras, two digital and two SLRs. Both SLRs are made by Canon and I have been...

bundled memory card, battery use, video recording.

I recently purchased this camera before a holiday, and as with all Canon products I have found that the A400 is an extremely high quality product. Having never owned a digital camera before I found it important to chose a camera that was both easy to use and offered good picture quality. This...

Idiot proof ..

None ??!!

This is my first digital camera. I agonised over all the technical details handed out in the shops - why is it whenever you are trying to buy something that you know absolutely nothing about you always get the little whizz kid - Bill Gates lookalike - confusing you with all these weird and...

Not Quite Pocket Sized, Guzzles AA Batteries

I was recently given this camera as an 18th birthday present .It was bought for £150 with some accessories, an extra 64mb memory card, a case, and a tripod. It can now be purchased for around £110 i believe. After years of using a standard camera I was worried that it would be a challenge to get...

“Lovely camera”

published 18/08/2005

Compact and easy to use

Didn't come with a case

This is my first digital camera and I've had it for a couple of months now. I'm really happy with the quality of the pictures and of how easy it is to use. It is a lovely, compact camera with menus that are easy to navigate. The instruction manual is detailed but easy to understand and not bogged...

Few mega-pixels and a small screen

I have had this camera now for two years and so far it hasn't let me down once. Although in comparison to the newer cameras out on the market it is fairly large and heavy, with a smaller screen and less mega-pixels, I've found it to be really good to use. For me the size is just right as anything...
