Ok, let me preface where this review is coming from. I am an amateur photographer who is a "Canon Girl" and has a Canon 50D as my primary DSLR "love of my life". Therefore, this may credit or discredit me in any way that you see fit in reading this! I've been in the market for a new compact for quite some time since my beloved Olympus lost its functionality last year(which happened to be my first taste in photography believe it or not several years ago..of course electronics do not last forever). I decided to take the plunge and purchase a camera that was so new that it did not have reviews on it yet!

First things first, this may or may not be a surprise, but the package does NOT come with a memory card. I suppose I'm used to these things coming with some sort of crappy low memory card to at least get you started. But, no worries, SanDisk makes a pretty inexpensive and of "ok" quality card. Amazon does not list what kind of memory cards this takes, (SD, SDHC, SDXC)

Second, MOST surprisingly, I actually read the users manual. I, like many others, tend to want to go the "I'll figure it out as I go" route. The manual was helpful and explained things at length.

Third, software installation pretty simple...however, I did have some trouble figuring out how to actually upload some sample photos that I took, but the manual gave me a fantastic instruction. That said, this will just go to show that the manual is pretty well written and in laymen's terms should that be of concern.

Fourth, went out to test drive it a bit. I suppose I feel as if I should have the knowledge/mental capacity being that I lead a part-time job being a photographer, however, it IS something new and change is difficult...BUT, it was simple to operate not to mention that it's pretty cool that the screen shows you AND MOVES with your targeted subject. I got clean, crisp photos. My favorite part of this camera is that when working with difficult "subjects", which in my case happened to be my rambunctious boxer/pit 2 2/12 year old dog, the moment you close on the shutter release, it captures exactly what you were intending. So, no more blurry head moves and smiles that you did not catch in time. BRILLIANT.

Overall, the reason why I gave it 4 and not 5 stars is because I read about all this nifty artsy stuff you could do with the camera, however, I couldn't seem to figure it out right off hand. (I JUST got this yesterday). Regardless, so far it seems to be a great little camera and I am looking forward to utilizing it more with events in my life that don't have much room for my big DSLR to be attached at my hip!! (note: I may update later when I get further into using it)

UPDATE: 4/3/12
I've had the camera now for a few weeks. I JUST figured out YESTERDAY how to use the "artistic" features for the camera. It took me forever to figure it out. Apparently, Canon has gotten a bit lazy and you now need to DOWNLOAD the ENTIRE manual from the CD you receive. My co-worker and I had a blast playing with the features. The toy camera, fish eye, and the miniature art features are really fun. Which is EXACTLY what I was looking for in this camera. Therefore, I upgraded my review for 5 stars!

I do not know a lot about photography, but I was recently in the market for a small, easy to carry point and shoot camera to replace my 4 year old Canon. I decided to stick with the same brand, as I had no problems from my last camera - I just wanted something a little more up to date. The A2400 has satisfied my needs. It is great for taking photographs indoors as well as outside. My photography mainly focuses on taking shots of my son and the products I review (I am a blogger), and the many different settings allow my photos to be more fun and unique than before.

I do have problems getting a clear photograph sometimes, even when my son or other subject is completely still and the camera is on the auto setting. I don't exactly know what is causing it not to focus on the subject - but it's quite annoying, especially with a toddler. Other than that, I have no complaints.

I usually use my Canon EOS 60D, but I wanted a small camera to just take along to have a quality camera with me, that's not too heavy and bulky. The image quality is great. I love all the gimmicky features, some of which I used to create with Photoshop later, thus it saves me time :) It looks neat and until now I haven't had any problem with the shooting delay I read about. I recommend to get a nice secure camera bag for this one, to avoid scratches to the screen and body.
Overall I love it and the images and videos are excellent!

I bought this camera for my wife. She's owned a number of P&S models of all types (Nikon, Samsung, Sony, Kodak) over the last 10 years, but this compact model seems to surpass them all for ease-of-use, quality and sharpness. The battery stayed charged through a 3-day trip through NYC. I research the CANON PowerShot prior to purchasing it at Amazon and had to be careful to pick the right model, the A2400, because CANON seems to have a diverse product line. It also seemed that most purchasers of this model were content with the purchase so that sealed the deal for me.

This camera goes with me everywhere I go. It is so small and lightweight, and delivers fantastic pictures. The ONLY complaint I would have is the lag time the camera has after taking the shot, it seems that is a bit long. However, I am used to it and only occasionally find it irritating. I do love it! I also have anSLR Canon, and this one gets more use because of its size and quality. Nice.

Got this camera for my wife. Good little camera but the shutter speed is VERY SLOW. This is good for outdoor still shots but forget taking action shots.

This camera was my back up for when I didn't want to lug the big camera around. It stopped working almost immediately and I lost valuable irreplaceable pictures! WORTHLESS. Bought it Feb 2013, fatal errors within two months! WASTE OF MONEY!
