>>Josh Goldman: Hi, I'm Josh Goldman, Senior Editor for CNET Reviews and this is a look at the Cannon PowerShot SD1400IS. The most remarkably thing about this camera is its size, its height and width are roughly that of a credit card and it's barely more than half an inch thick, yet Cannon was able to squeeze a wide angle lense with a 4x zoom in front and a 2.7 inch LCD on back. Controls are pretty straight forward, though they are small so fast setting changes maybe difficult for some, but I never had a problem doing it. Shooting modes are geared towards users who leave things in auto, too, so there might not be much reason for you to fiddle with settings anyway. Cannon's Smart AUTO on this camera is also one of the more reliable auto modes I've tested and you might expect something this size to be quick but shooting performance and battery life are farely middle of the road and neither good nor bad. Its 14 megapixel resolution doesn't do anything to improve photo quality but the results are still very good considering its size and price. For a grab-n-go pocket camera, it's one of the best ultra compact designs available.
I'm Josh Goldman and that's the Cannon PowerShot SD1400IS.
