Canon is a very highly established name when it comes to cameras. This company is known for its quality products that don’t come with exorbitant price tags. Here comes another camera from the house of Canon that provides really good features at an affordable cost. Thus, if you are looking for a new camera that doesn’t hurt your pocket much, then look no further as the Canon PowerShot A1400 is here. The brand new model PowerShot A1400 comes with a very good 16 megapixels, that is really important while considering a digi-cam buy. Moreover, it really comes with a very attractive price point. However, the camera doesn’t compromise in the good zoom range or a good high resolution sensor. As a cherry on top of the cake, the PowerShot A1400 also offers an optical viewfinder unlike the other affordable cameras. The Canon PowerShot A1400 provides a nice 5x optical zoom lens with a 28mm wide angle. Its maximum aperture varies from f/2.8 to a decidedly dim f/6.9 across the zoom range, and it does not provide any optical image stabilization option, which is really acceptable for its pocket friendly price. However, Canon includes a digital image stabilization that will help in preventing blurred images, but it is also likely to increase noise levels in the course of action. The canon A1400 features a 16 megapixel image sensor coupled with a DIGIC 4 image processor. It also provides a not so generous but workable 2.7-inch LCD screen, given its price quotient. Needless to say the digi-cam can shoot 720p high-definition videos apart from taking still pictures. The Canon A1400 draws its power from the two standard AA batteries that should last for up to 240 images. To save energy, the Canon A1400 features an uncommon Eco mode, which detects when the camera is idle and puts it to sleep mode after ten seconds. The Canon PowerShot A1400 ships from this month with a very affordable and justified price tag of around US$110.
