The PowerShot A3400 IS Touch Screen Digital Camera (Black) from Canon has a sleek design, complete with a large 3.0" touch screen LCD that helps you capture images with the tap of a finger. The A3400 IS has the 35mm equivalent of a 28 - 140mm lens with a 16 megapixel resolution CCD image sensor. It also employs advanced image stabilization technologies and techniques to ensure your HD videos aren't shaky and your photos aren't blurry. This allows you to capture clearer, truer images without unwanted blur or camera shake.

With its 16 megapixel image sensor this little camera is still able to capture poster-sized images at a maximum 4608 x 3456 resolution. This gives you the flexibility to enlarge or crop any section of your image for printing or sharing online. Digital Image Stabilization ensures those images are as sharp as possible and not blurred due to low lighting, holding the camera away from you, or aiming at a moving subject.

The PowerShot A3400 IS features touch screen technology that makes using the camera even easier and more enjoyable. Choose where you want to focus by pressing the screen and watching as an AF box appears. If you have a moving target the box will even track them around the frame. Simply release your finger and the shutter will release, capturing the image. You can also change camera settings, record and play videos and much, much more using the convenient touch screen capabilities of the A3400 IS.

The DIGIC 4 Image Processor powers all of the camera's advanced systems and features--ensuring you get fast, reliable performance with low battery consumption. With it, the camera can have its enhanced picture quality, alongside features like HD video, high-speed continuous shooting, and Face-Detection Self-Timer.

In addition to the speed of shooting, the Optical Image Stabilization and Intelligent IS work in combination to deliver sharper and clearer images to your camera and memory card. Using multiple types of image stabilization, the camera selects the best and most appropriate method to capture your photo or video without distracting camera shake.

The A3400 IS doubles as a high definition camcorder that fits in your pocket with its 720p HD video resolution. Capture more than a snapshot of your memories by recording all of them in outstanding HD quality. With the video capabilities, as well as the dozens of photography features, it is a feature-packed camera that likely takes up same amount of space as your cell phone.

16MP Image Resolution
Capture minute details and textures with the camera's 16 megapixel resolution imaging sensor, making your images rich and clear even out to the long end of the optical zoom. Having a high resolution 1/2.3" CCD sensor is ideal when you plan to create large prints, and also provides the flexibility to blow up and crop sections of an image when you wish to alter the composition.
28-140mm Equivalent Lens with 5x Optical & 4x Digital Zoom
Just because it's a small camera doesn't mean it has to have a tiny lens. This PowerShot camera is built with a Canon 5x Optical Zoom Lens, and a 4x digital zoom. The optical zoom starts as a 28mm wide-angle and can extend to its maximum 140mm telephoto zoom, when converted to their respective 35mm equivalents. This covers a wide and highly useful range of focal lengths that are great for landscape, interior, portrait, wildlife, group or event photographs.
3.0" Rear LCD Screen with Touch Shutter
As large as some DSLR screens, the A3400 IS has a bright 3.0" touch panel LCD that not only provides a larger, clearer screen but also the ability to shoot images by touch. Canon's Touch Shutter technology allows you to release the shutter by holding your finger over the subject you want in focus, then lift your finger to snap the photo. If you touch the desired subject on the screen an AF box will appear and follow them in the frame. Having a larger screen also helps you compose images better, and provides a wealth of important information about the shot as you capture it via the crisp 230,000 dot color user interface.
DIGIC 4 Image Processor
The camera houses Canon's DIGIC 4 Image Processor to power its advanced systems and features. This ensures fast and reliable performance without sacrificing battery life. Features such as high-speed continuous shooting, HD video capture and Face- or Motion-Detection are all made possible thanks to its fast processing speed and efficient design.
Dedicated 720p HD Video Recording Button
What's better than capturing brand new home movies of your family? Doing it with a camera that fits in your pocket! Shoot high definition 720p video anytime, anywhere right from the little digital camera. No longer limited to still images, with a simple push of the dedicated movie button you can record every moment in motion. In addition to being able to shoot 720p HD video at 25 frames per second, it can also shoot 640 x 480 VGA video at 30 frames per second when you need to keep the files size low to leave more room in your memory card.
Optical Image Stabilization
With a small camera that fits in your hand, you can often run into problems with camera shake, making photos and videos blurry or unusable. Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer uses lens-shift technology to correct for unwanted camera movement before it even reaches the camera sensor. Because it is an optical system, there is none of the image degradation typical with electronic image stabilizers. This provides enhanced image quality in many difficult shooting situations, like low-light indoors or out, and even when using the maximum zoom range of the lens without a tripod. Shoot at slower shutter speeds and in more low-light situations than ever before without having to boost ISO sensitivity and introduce digital noise. With camera shake and vibration reduced, you get a sharper, clearer image before it's even recorded in your memory card.
Intelligent IS Stabilization System
Going beyond Canon's Optical Image Stabilization technology in the lens, Intelligent IS detects and implements the most appropriate camera shake correction methods for any given shooting situation. When shooting still photographs the system automatically selects between Normal, Panning, Macro (Hybrid) and Tripod image stabilization modes. During HD video capture it automatically chooses among Dynamic, Powered, Macro and Tripod IS modes. Using Intelligent IS you can concentrate on your images and let the camera worry about the most effective IS settings, giving you clearer photos and videos as a result.
100 - 1600 ISO Sensitivity
With a range of sensitivities, it can shoot anywhere from a bright sunny day at the beach, to a dark room lit only by birthday candles - and anywhere in between. Choose ISO 100 when the sun is shining and there is plenty of light around your subject. This will allow you to have sharper and clearer images, with less noise due to the low ISO. When shooting at night or in areas of low light you can quickly turn the ISO up to 1600 and keep shooting despite the lack of ambient light.
Smart AUTO Scenes and Selections
Any photographer can appreciate a camera that removes some of the hassles of capturing beautiful images - especially one that is so compact. This digital camera features Smart AUTO: a sophisticated Canon technology that help to make great shots as simple as pressing the shutter button. It will automatically analyze scenes by assessing various factors in both the background and the subject. These scenes are compared using 32 predefined shooting situations and the camera then makes the optimal adjustments to ensure the best possible image capture when shooting still images. Smart AUTO also incorporates Advanced Subject Detection, which allows the camera to detect and track non-human moving subjects like animals and vehicles. With Smart AUTO, all you'll have to do is aim your shot and let it do the rest.
iFrame Recording for Apple iMovie
With the video capabilities of this camera you can also choose to shoot video in the Apple iFrame format, which is a computer-friendly standard that speeds up the importing and editing of your videos. It keeps the file sizes small, which makes it more convenient to upload or e-mail high-quality videos to friends and family, or upload them to social media sites for sharing. The iFrame format enjoys native support in compatible Mac and Windows video programs, making it unnecessary to perform time-consuming and often quality-degrading conversions to other formats.
Scene Modes and Effects
You'll notice it is surprisingly easier to create complex photographic effects with the digital camera's Scene Modes. No special lenses, filters or editing techniques are necessary, just a quick change to the camera's setting. Scene Modes include a Fisheye Effect for that classic rounded distortion, Toy Camera Effect that recreates the look of toy or pinhole cameras, Monochrome mode that adds a distinct one-color effect to your photos, among many others.
Dedicated Help Button
Find help no matter where you are, or when you need it. This digital camera is designed to be fun and easy to use, and its new Help Button on the camera's exterior brings up the help menu on the LCD screen any time you need it. Scroll through a variety of topics to get clear explanations, helpful shooting advice, and diagrams highlighting the position of any other buttons you need to find.
Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery
Having to constantly buy and store dozens of "AA" batteries can be cumbersome and expensive over time. This camera comes with an included, rechargeable lithium-ion battery that can be reused for hundreds of photoshoots and videos. Not only does it have a battery included, but also a compact power adapter that allows you to recharge wherever there's a compatible power outlet. No matter where you go, you won't need to haul around additional boxes of batteries to power up your camera and keep you shooting.

    Chose this canon because the touch screen was larger , and it has made all the difference in using it, and learning. I am 'older' and found it easy to take great pictures immediately just using the booklet. It is a dream to use ! I've been capturing my new cat in motion and it is such fun ! Honestly, I must explore the cd included with it . Am a sculptor and take a lot of macro images . Know there is more to learn, but in the mean time - easy is the word - and Canon images are the best ! So far nothing negative or needing improvement ...love taking it with me everywhere.

    My main complaint is not the camera but the instructions. They only give you a start up guide. For more detail & and advanced instructions you must download CD to your computer. I think that was kind of a dumb idea. For anyone that doesn't have a computer, you will never know all of the cameras features.

      Comments about PowerShot A3400 IS Touch Screen Digital Camera (Black):

      I bought this as a point and shoot camera for my grandparents and on auto mode it does just fine for outdoor shooting. Indoor shooting requires a little more tweaking, so if you're looking for an indoor point and shoot camera for someone with not much technical prowess you may want to look at a slightly higher end model.

      The touchscreen protective coating is a little thick for my liking, so it's not quite as responsive as I like, but it should hold up to abuse quite well.

      As with all Canon cameras, macro pictures on program mode are incredibly detailed, and this camera will easily keep up with a first generation EOS digital rebel when it comes to getting up close.

      The 5x optical zoom is also quite nice.

                      The camera is light, very easy to use, and quality of pictures is excellent. Since the camera is a touch screen, it can become sensitive at times, and take pictures unexpectedly. This isn't too big a deal, as pictures can easily be erased.
                      I would highly recommend this camera!

                          Chose this canon because the touch screen was larger , and it has made all the difference in using it, and learning. I am 'older' and found it easy to take great pictures immediately just using the booklet. It is a dream to use ! I've been capturing my new cat in motion and it is such fun ! Honestly, I must explore the cd included with it . Am a sculptor and take a lot of macro images . Know there is more to learn, but in the mean time - easy is the word - and Canon images are the best ! So far nothing negative or needing improvement ...love taking it with me everywhere.

                              the point and shoot is decent, but it takes a LONG time to capture the image (lag with shutter speed). cant take lots of photos in sequence...

                                I purchased this originally for someone else, but ended up keeping this for myself. I bought this at the recommendation of a co-worker when I told them I was looking for something compact, versatile, reasonably price and had good overall quality. Boy, THIS did NOT disappoint! Initially, it appeared a bit intimidating considering the amount of features and the touch screen capability that I'm not use to. However, once I did some hands on, I got the hang of it in no time. GREAT picture quality, surprising for something in the $-$ range. I usually don't capture video, but this did a pretty good job of snagging a few practice sequences and surprisingly was pretty stable. Overall, I rate this a 5 out of 5. Great product, great quality at a great price. I highly recommend this.

                                The camera functions as it should. The picture is very clear and sharp in natural light. However it could use some improvment in low light settings. Photos are a bit grainy . Additionally, the touch screen feature which is highly convenient is sometimes unresponsive and slow. The shutter also lags a bit, so for subjects that move, make sure you have it on a speed setting to compensate for this. The wide angle, works well for the average landscape photographer who likes to capture those moments which happen in the blink of a eye, however not suitable for portraiture, as the wide angel distorts the features of the subject. If using to capture portrait shots, a solution to remedy this problem would be to capture your subjects from at least 3 feet away. However, the camera overall is very easy to use and picture quality is good, which is typical of a canon product. I would recommend this to anyone who likes to have a spare camera with them in their day to day activities. Or, for the beginer landscape photographer or painter who may want to capture that landscape or scene for further development.

                                  This compact camera which you can place in your front pocket while traveling, is very easy to use and takes remarkably good pictures. The colors are vibrant and images come out sharp. The LCD screen is wide enough for viewing. I find using the LCD screen as a touch screen very user friendly. So far, it has'nt given us any problems. Glad I bought this camera.

                                      Comments about PowerShot A3400 IS Touch Screen Digital Camera (Silver):

                                      Big features for such a small camera. Because of the simplicity of the camera it was a perfect gift for my dad. Now with this and his iphone he's in technology heaven!!! : )
