Like its predecessor, I enjoyed spending time with the SD1400 IS. It’s small, sleek and easily transportable, and has very good build quality. It takes nice-looking photos and movies and has many interesting features. It has a high-quality lens that takes sharp pictures with small amounts of distortion.

The camera does have some limits: low light ability, relatively short focal range, and limited manual controls. But it’s a solid buy if you’re looking for a first-rate snapshot camera or a pocket-sized companion to a DSLR.
