reviewsWhat are people saying about the SD1400 IS

"Photos taken with plenty of light will give you excellent color and very good detail" | talking about the camera's image-quality
"Canon typically does well at balancing noise reduction and noise in images, and that's the case here. Despite details getting softer, they're not smeared beyond recognition, giving you usable images straight up to ISO 1,600" | talking about the camera's iso-noise
"Image stabilization works well" | talking about the camera's image-stabilization

bad camera, poor image quality I'm going to return this camera back

this model has iso boost up to 6400 at 3MP with low light mode

I like canons but wife doesn't as she wants to the date stamp right there on the photos when she shoots them, undestandably desired feature for memories. So we had to buy nikons so far. But now canon has woken up to this silly omission and SD1400 has it!
For those who think date stamp ruins the photos (including me) just turn it off, damn it!

This is a great pocket camera. Great features and great photos, Program modes, HD movies (with zoom), Image Stabilization works well even at full optical and digital zoom, long battery life, focus assist for very low light shots. From power on to ready in less than a second. It can even look through my telescope and Microscope!
