Canon PowerShot A1400 Reviews

PCMAG reviews the Canon PowerShot A1400 and writes;
“The budget-priced compact can hold its own against competitors in good light; just don’t expect to take photos in dim situations without the aid of the flash. It’s small enough to slide into a shirt pocket, has a fairly good optical viewfinder, and a shutter lag that is short enough so that you won’t miss a shot.”
