The Canon Powershot A3400 IS is one of the cheaper options if you are looking for a digital camera offering touch screen capabilities. Aside from the touch screen the Powershot A3400 IS operates as a fairly typical point and shoot digital camera.
Key features include a 3 inch LCD screen, 16 megapixels and a 5x wide angle lens. The Powershot A3400 IS can record High Definition movies. Canon have equipped the Powershot A3400 IS with image stabilisation. This can be used to remove unwanted blur from still images and also ensure your movie clips look that bit steadier. There are also a small number of movie scene modes. Selecting the most appropriate scene mode can improve the overall quality of your movies.
For close up shots the macro mode is able to focus from 3cm away from your subject. Canon have added a help button that gives you general assistance for using the camera and understanding its different functions. This helps to make sure you get the most out of your camera.
