Pros: Small, handy camera, easy to operate, good price. Not bad low light image quality. Good videos. Good quality of construction. Looks like a good toy. Cons: See at the "Problems" section below. So, this is good camera when using indoor, but, on my opinion is not good for outdoor shooting involving people or using the Portrait mode. I lost my Olympus C7000 2 months ago. My Olympus did not have any new functions such as image stabilization, wide-angle lenses, high ISO settings, etc, but had ...

Bought the camera and used it for a few hours. Overall it's not a bad camera, but it didn't suit my needs. I use my P&S cameras mostly for videos and this one shoots big video files (3x the size of my existing P&S camera). Problems: -As others have mentioned, a little slippery to hold because of round edges. -Small buttons are difficult to press. -Can't turn off general camera sounds but leave on the audio for video recordings (unless I overlooked something). -Doesn't have 15 fps QVGA (320 × ...

I wanted a small HD-capable pocket cam, but this one is just not the camera for me. HD video is ok, but the photo quality is not acceptable. Problems: Noisy and soft photos.

Next to my EOS 5DII I desired to have an easy to carry pocket size camera. The Ixus 130, SD 1400, is a wonderful small camera with surprisingly good indoor qualities, the flash works well particularly in the fill in flash position it creates delightful pictures. `outdoors under different light conditions it gives remarkably good pictures. The features are easy to select and allow sufficient freedom for personal settings. Of course one should bare in mind that it is only a tiny CCD sensor and ...

This camera is capable of getting excellent results with a little practice. I bought it to replace a stolen 5 year old SD550 which had always done very well. My primary camera is a DSLR and I always carry a PS for a back-up. The SD1400 gets sharper pictures than the SD550 and has a more useful zoom range. Good points for me are the picture quality, exposure accuracy, good auto focus, quality of construction, useful flash, and long battery life. I find the lens performance excellent ...

I have used all of the Canon Ixus/powershot that Canon made and this is the best in my opinion. Very very light material, hard, fast on the response with the menu option (that needs some practice to understand how to use it at the best, and not to coomplicate the life). The flash it is fast in the response and the intelligent feature of the auto-shots it works perfectly and it is very comfortable and funny. I pushed the camera to the ISO1600 with/withous flash. it works perfectly in ...

I usually shoot with a DSLR, but I have had several small point-and-shoot cameras for casual/discrete use. The SD14000 is by far the best I have tried. In particular, it's low light ability is stunning. I have taken several candid indoor shots both of individuals and of whole rooms. Of course you have to be careful not to push the camera beyond its ability and indoor shooting requires a steady hand (any support is a help) and a subject that doesn't move much, but it is a very capable little ...

I have had several point and shoot cameras and SLR cameras... I am an amateur photographer and shoot hundreds of photos every week. I bought this camera to replace a Panasonic point and shoot I have. I usually shoot my SLR, but there are times when you simply don't want to lug it around and want a small compact camera. On paper this camera looks very good, and since there were no reviews of the camera at the time I bought it, I decided to give it a go. At first I thought the camera was ...
