I love this Camera!!!!I was somewhat skeptical about buying this due to the lack of reviews. There arent much reviews on a camera unless it's totally famous or new. So I bought it because it was sale for mothers day.I have been using it for about a week now, took it to the zoo. It took excellent pictures, and on top of that the video function is just awesome, it looks like a movie when you're shooting it!The only problem with this is how the price when up like crazy in a day or two. The camera b ... undle (red) was on sale for 120. Then the next day it was 130 (when I bought it), then the following week, I check it goes up to 220, then 200. Now it's in the 150's. Just keep your eye on it, don't buy if its over 150!I would recommend it to everyone, unless you're a professional, then buy a bigger better camera. I am looking forward to taking this to Europe and Asia this summer :DOh it's touch screen too, thought it was cool when I... More >

I've been into photography for almost 25 years and have more cameras then I care to admit to. I use a Nikon D5100 and a Canon SX40HS as my higher end cameras but wanted something to just throw around and carry in my messenger bag for daily events. I blog and Facebook and am always shooting pics around town. I had been using a sd700is for the last few years for that purpose but being from 2006 I figured I'de get something more up to date. The A3400is has not let me down, It takes pictures on par ... with the SX40HS and sometimes can't tell which camera shot what. It's touch screen is easy to use , it's compact and for the money you just can't go wrong. To be honest I just don't have anything I can say that is negative about the A3400IS. Low light, sunny days the photo's are all sharp. It's a great starter camera or just to leave in your bag for that special photo that comes along. I love it and for the 139.00 I paid it's a no brainer. More >

I bought this camera after somehow breaking my old one (oops). I've had it for almost a week now, and I've got to say that it's almost perfect for the casual photographer. I absolutely love the image quality, the various image modes, and the video quality.The one thing that I'm not really liking is how the image color differs from the playback screen to my computer screen. It's definitely not a huge issue, but it took me by surprise when I found out that pictures appear more cool toned on the pl ... ayback screen than they actually are.Overall, I'm glad that I decided to keep my new camera purchase "in the family." My previous camera was a Canon Powershot SD1000 and this new camera is an excellent comparison. More >
