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.
This is the greatest little camera! Fits in your pocket, takes great shots in all light. Speaking of light: with the view finder you can see in all light--no more guessing with a dark screen in bright light. This is a five-star camera.
Thanks, Canon, for the winner!

What's NOT in the box
A memory card and a computer connect cable is NOT in the box. They must be purchased before you can take a picture and download it onto your computer. Now I have to make another trip to the store before I can take a picture. Major inconvenience.

Canon A1400 HD
This is the best small digital camera I have ever owned. The photo quality is so great, So very clear and in focus.
It is the only camera I have found this small (pocket size) with a viewfinder on it. When you look at the screen in the outdoors in the sun, you cannot see what you are taking. This viewfinder takes care of that, you can see everything in the bright sun ! I absolutely love it !
The clarity of the photos from it are phenomenal !
I hope that Canon will always make the small digital ones with the viewfinder.

Love My Canon
Love this camera for the ease of use & affordability. Was looking for a camera to take on our upcoming trip to Alaska. Wanted something that was reliable & could easily fit in my pocket. The viewfinder made my choice easy because I can now take pictures in bright light.
