Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"Sometimes when the battery is weak, it may take a lot of time to take a picture (and a lot of frustration), so this is not a cam to capture any special pictures or kodak moments."
_
"My only negative is that it is a battery hog."
_
"I guess the only problem I would have with it is the same as with almost any digital camera and that is battery life."
_
"There is only one drawback - it draws too much current and uses batteries way toofast."
_
"The only drawbacks I found is the short battery life, and the 16MB memory."
_
"SD slot, AA batteries, screen size are good features."
_
"I've felt the life of a battery set is pretty good, but I've been using nice rechargeable ones."
_
"I would definitely recommend rechargeable batteries.."
_
"It's a great feature to be able to use regular size (AA) batteries, but i had to purchase rechargable ones to save money."
_
"But consider the price, the quality of the images (very nice), the good battery life, and the fact that it is a Canon."

Setting

Setting:
"Powershot a400 has almost solved this problem and its function in indoor settings is really great."
_
"The problem most of digital cameras suffer from one way or another is that they don't function well in indoor settings or low light situations."
_
"There is one small qualm tho, the battery life is short (the batteries supplied are virtually useless, be sure to buy some highpowered duracell for best battery life)I bought this camera from Frys in Austin TX, and my friend bought the canon powershot a75, and i honestly cannot see the advantage of having the a75 other than the manual settings are more accessible and the lens is interchangeable, if you are into lens' then you should be buying an SLR, if you are into high quality fun photography, get the a400, its a winner, also the lcd is AMAZING quality."
_
"The settings are pretty easy to figure out and change and 99% of my photos were taken on the auto setting and came out pretty good."
_
"The camera is user-friendly and provides exceptional photos in any setting(light dark)."
_
"Automatic Exposures vs. Manual - This camera ships with automated settings selected (for best exposures without you having to understand all the technicalities of photography) to make your life easier."
_
"These settings make any photographer take great pictures."

_
"SD slot, AA batteries, screen size are good features."
