Cameralabs reviews the Canon PowerShot A3400 IS and writes;
“It has a 5x optical zoom with the same range as the less expensive models in the range, but, crucually, with the added benefit of optical image stabilisation which makes a big difference to its ability to get good shots in low light as well as smooth movie footage at 720p HD resolution.”

“The PowerShot A3400 IS delivers good performance and high image quality for the price. This basic camera is not extremely fast nor does it offer loads of fancy features, but it delivers the goods for most everyday shooting needs.”

Photographyblog reviews the Canon PowerShot A3400 IS and writes;
“Image quality from the A3400 IS is great. Colours are punchy and bold. Primary colours aren’t too saturated and don’t overwhelm the rest of the picture. Softer colours and subtle hues are recorded sympathetically and skin tones are natural.”

Digitalcamerainfo reviews the Canon PowerShot A3400 IS and writes;
“the A3400 has a 16-megapixel CCD sensor, 720p HD video capability, and a 5x zoom lens, but its rechargeable lithium-ion battery, optical image stabilization, and in particular, a larger 3-inch LCD screen help it to stand out. Those are all reasonably solid specs for a $179 camera.”
