&&&&&& UPDATED, December 21, 2014 &&&&&&&
(Upgraded from 1-star to 2-stars, due to a sudden, very large, price drop in the Canon SX400 from $199 down to $149. That reflects my slightly-improved opinion of its relative "value" when compared to other similar Canon cameras. I still don't recommend it to anyone, but to be fair I have updated my review of it accordingly. Best wishes - John)

The Canon SX400 is an orphan camera stuck in among several other superior Canon cameras, all of them at very close to the same price, and all of them with far more features than the SX400. Basically all the SX400 has is a 30X zoom (and about half of the others do, too.)

The Canon SX400 is like a very bulky, auto-mode-only Canon ELPH135, with a 30X zoom instead of an 8X zoom.

It is being advertised as "an upgrade to the Canon SX170." It isn't. And it isn't nearly as good of a camera as the older-model Canon SX510 (same 30X zoom,) either.

The new SX400 is actually a stripped-down version of the older-style SX510, using the even older-style SX170 sensor. There is nothing new or original on the whole camera. It's like Canon had a lot of spare parts and a small battery. It has no manual controls. It has no manual focus. It has no special features. And it has a very small battery. The SX400 is simply a bulky, auto-mode-only, point-and-shoot camera with a 30X zoom, that shoots lower-resolution video, in mono sound, and has a very short battery life.

The newer model SX520 and the older model SX170 are compared below to the new Canon SX400.

&&&&&&&.... The Canon SX400 vs. the Canon SX170 .... &&&&&&&
The shooting specs for the SX400 and SX170 are essentially identical.

I bought this camera at my local Best Buy, because let's be honest it saves the cost of shipping. It is a point and click camera with great zoom. If you give the camera time to think, it takes a nice photo. It does have continuous shoot with a minor (about 2 seconds) in between shots. the camera comes with everything that you need (camera, lens cap, wrist strap, battery, charger). However, it doesn't have the SD card, or a carrying bag. It's not one with 800 possible settings, or a lot of bells and whistles, it is a point and click camera with wonderful zoom, and auto settings. You manually open the flash, and the continuous shoot will not work with the flash on. Also, when you use the flash, you get about 150-200 photos before you start loosing battery power. On a full nights battery charge, I get about 500 photos or about a week of holding power before I have to charge it again. Just something to keep in mind if your going to a big event....

Bought as a Christmas present for my girlfriend and was shocked when if arrived it is SO SMALL its not even funny. I was a little annoyed at how small the camera is for the money they want. It takes decent photos and videos but again it is so small it fits in the palm of your hand. Its about the same size as my cell phone. And I almost think my phone take clearer pictures.
