Memories Made Easy.
The PowerShot A1400 is a compact, easy-to-use camera that retains the familiar feel of a classic point-and-shoot. Its large grip is easy to grasp and comfortable to hold, while the Optical Viewfinder is ideal for capturing photos in bright sunlight. A 16.0 Megapixel sensor and the DIGIC 4 Image Processor deliver stunning images with amazing detail. The 5x Optical Zoom with 28mm Wide-Angle lens brings you in close for grand shots, and Smart AUTO makes shooting beautiful images effortless, analyzing the scene and choosing the optimal settings from 32 predefined shooting situations. When the fun is on the move, capture it all in 720p HD Video using the dedicated movie button. The PowerShot A1400 runs on two convenient AA-alkaline batteries, readily available when and where you need it, and the new ECO Mode conserves power so you will still be ready to take photos long after the party is over.
