Canon PowerShot A1400 Black 16.0 Megapixel Digital Camera, Model A1400BK

The Canon PowerShot A1400 is an easy-to-use camera perfect for the casual shooter looking for a no-frills point & shoot that doesn't skimp on image quality.

Continuing the trend established by the legendary Canon A-series camera line, the PowerShot A1400 contains some of Canon's best digital camera technology in a simple body. Imaging is handled by a 16 Megapixel sensor powered by the DIGIC 4 Image Processor—a combo found in many of Canon's more expensive cameras. Together, they produce photos with rich colors and clear details, giving you the ability to print large, life-like photos. Digital camera settings can be intimidating, but Canon's Smart AUTO system can take control by intelligently analyzing every scene and choosing the settings that will result in the best photo. A dedicated video button lets you switch easily between snapping photos and filming brilliant 720p High Definition Video. And a 5x Canon optical zoom lens will make sure you can always fit the entire scene into your photo.

While digital cameras clearly outnumber film cameras these days, many people still enjoy holding the camera to their eye when composing a shot. The Canon PowerShot A1400 is one of the few digicams still available with an optical viewfinder, great for those who find it awkward to frame a photo through an LCD screen, with their arms stretched out in front of them. Bringing the A1400 to your eye is a pleasure thanks to the integrated grip, a feature often missing on today's sleek, slim pocket cameras. Of course, with this Canon you get the best of both worlds, because a 2.7" LCD lets you instantly review your snapshots. And to round out list of user friendly features, the Canon PowerShot A1400 gets its power from a pair of regular AA batteries, so you'll never miss a shot while waiting for a special battery to charge.


  • An Optical Viewfinder makes capturing images simple and easy
    The PowerShot A1400 digital camera gives you a choice that's getting increasingly hard to find on digital cameras today. It's equipped with an Optical Viewfinder in addition to the LCD screen. Many photographers prefer this classic, familiar option that lets you simply hold the camera to your eye and shoot. The camera's big, bright 2.7-inch LCD screen gives you a wealth of important information about the shot. However, using it to compose and focus requires that you hold the camera away from your body. Many people do this with one hand, arms away from the body, effectively creating camera shake that can distort a shot. Using the Optical Viewfinder helps ensure that the camera is held steady, and is an easy, familiar alternative to composing shots on an LCD screen. It's also useful in bright conditions when it might be difficult to see the monitor. The great thing is that from shot to shot, whether you use the Optical Viewfinder or LCD screen is your choice
  • 16.0 Megapixel Image Sensor with DIGIC 4 Image Processor
    With the PowerShot A1400 digital camera's 16.0 Megapixels of resolution, your images are rich and clear, with textures and tiny details faithfully reproduced even at the long end of the 5x Optical Zoom. This high level of resolution is ideal for creating the largest prints, and allows you the flexibility to blow up and crop any section of an image to express your creativity. The DIGIC 4 Image Processor powers the camera's advanced systems and features, ensuring fast, reliable performance with low battery consumption
  • DIGIC 4 Image Processor
    Canon DIGIC Image Processors have set the standard for functionality and performance since their groundbreaking introduction in 1999. With each successive generation, DIGIC Image Processors have brought elevated performance and powerful new features to PowerShot digital cameras. The DIGIC 4 Image Processor has ushered in a new level of picture quality and accelerated processing, making possible features such as high-speed continuous shooting, HD video and Face Detection Self-timer
  • 5x Optical Zoom with 28mm Wide-Angle Lens
    The 5x Optical Zoom (35mm equivalent: 28–140mm) in the PowerShot A1400 digital camera delivers outstanding optical performance and versatility. It gives you a great range of potential images from a single location, which is perfect for sporting events and other occasions when your shooting stance is fixed, or times when moving in too close might disrupt the action you're trying to capture. The lens' 28mm wide-angle perspective puts more image in every frame for dynamic, exciting shots
  • Smart AUTO
    Photographers of all levels appreciate a camera – especially a go-anywhere compact digital – that takes the hassle out of capturing beautiful images. The PowerShot A1400 gives you Smart AUTO – sophisticated Canon technology that makes getting that great shot as simple as pressing the shutter button. Smart AUTO automatically detects scenes by assessing various factors in both the background and the subject. Detected scenes are analyzed using 32 predefined shooting situations. The camera then makes optimal settings to ensure the best possible image capture when shooting still images. Smart AUTO also includes Advanced Subject Detection, which allows the camera to detect and track non-human moving subjects like animals and vehicles. With Smart AUTO, all you have to do is frame your shot and capture away
  • 720p HD Video
    You can shoot high definition video anytime, anywhere right from the pocket-sized PowerShot A1400 digital camera. With a simple push of the dedicated movie button, you'll be able to instantly record every moment in motion. 720p HD video is smooth, vivid, and beautifully lifelike, making it an ideal way to capture special memories. In addition to being able to shoot 720p HD video at 25 frames per second, the PowerShot A1400 can also shoot 640 x 480 VGA video at 30* frames per second
  • Dedicated Movie Button for Easy Video Capture
    It's never been easier to shoot videos with a PowerShot digital camera. To make shooting video as natural as snapping pictures, the PowerShot A1400 has a dedicated movie button. No need to plan ahead, no need to search through menus on the LCD screen; when you feel a moment would be best captured in 720p HD, simply press the button and recording begins. The camera is always ready to shoot stills or video whenever you want
  • Digital IS
    Digital IS beats the blur that mars many shots by recognizing the main subject, then automatically applying the camera shake correction that best suits the situation. If the subject is a person, blur reduction processing is performed. For landscapes, cityscapes and other still scenes, the camera takes 3 quick successive shots and composes them into a single clear image. If the subject is moving, the camera takes 3 successive shots, then automatically saves the clearest image
  • New ECO Mode helps reduce power consumption for longer battery life
    The PowerShot A1400 takes energy conservation to the next level with ECO Mode, which provides more shots per single charge through LCD monitor and camera power management. ECO Mode can be activated via a dedicated button for easy power preservation when an outlet is unavailable or the moment is too exciting to put the camera down. ECO Mode quickly wakes the camera from sleep when a button is pressed so you won't miss the moment. When the fun with family and friends runs late into the evening, ECO Mode on the PowerShot A1400 makes sure your camera keeps up
  • AA Battery Powered
    Recharging batteries can often be an inconvenience, especially when traveling in foreign countries. With the PowerShot A1400, you'll never need special power adapters or chargers because it's powered by two AA batteries that are widely available around the world
  • Scene Modes
    Scene Modes are fun, easy ways to give your shots a distinctly artistic feel without the need for any extra lenses and filters. Super Vivid heightens and saturates colors for eye-popping intensity. Poster Effect eliminates gradations between colors for an illustrative feel. Miniature Effect enhances perspective in a scene, blurring the top and bottom to make it look as if it were created with miniature models. You can also make a quirky portrait using the Fisheye Effect or add a beautiful single-tone effect with Monochrome. Toy Camera Effect simulates a vintage look as it capturing the photo using a "toy" or pinhole camera
  • Help Button
    The PowerShot A1400 digital camera is designed to be fun and easy to use, even for beginners. A Help Button on the camera's exterior brings up the help menu any time you need it, right on the LCD screen. From here, you can scroll through a variety of topics that answer your questions with clear explanations, offer helpful shooting advice, and show you diagrams highlighting the position of any buttons you'll need
