Photography is my favorite pastime. I have been using a Canon PowerShot SD400 digital camera for the past 5 years. I had purchased it offline after doing thorough research on many brands.
I settled for this particular model while purchasing as it was very sleek, compact and also had 5 mega pixels. Nowadays there are many sleek varieties with high mega pixels.
One normally needs higher mega pixels if he/she needs to print posters. This particular model cost me 15,000 rupees and is worth the money. I love my camera very much. I have used it in extreme conditions and the pictures have come out very well.
I had gone to Kashmir in the month of January when there was heavy snowfall. But the pictures that I took at that time have come out real perfect. Even while holidaying in Andaman and Nicobar Islands, I had done a few underwater shots as the camera has features that can help you shoot under water.
I have taken indoor, outdoor as well as underwater shots and it has worked perfectly fine. The camera has video features where you can shoot for 10 minutes. I have also taken a few video dance shots of my daughter while she was performing.
I have taken tons of pictures as we always love to visit new places. The battery life is very good and does not discharge easily. I have been using the same rechargeable battery since the day I have purchased it. Normally after the photos are taken, I upload them on my computer to view.
The camera does not have an optical image stabilizer that helps in reducing the blur from shaking of hands, so one needs a steady hand. This is the only disadvantage. The pros of the camera outweighs the cons and it is value for money.
