12 Reasons why Canon PowerShot A1400 is better

Comparing Canon PowerShot A1400 vs Canon PowerShot A1200

1.Clearly more megapixels (photo)
16MPvs 12.1MP (Canon PowerShot A1200)
174gvs 185g (Canon PowerShot A1200)
3.Measurably better video recording quality
720 x 25fpsvs 720 x 24fps (Canon PowerShot A1200)
4.Vastly faster maximum shutter speed
0.0005svs 0.000625s (Canon PowerShot A1200)
A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.
94.7mmvs 97.5mm (Canon PowerShot A1200)
6.Substantially less body volume
174.12cm³vs 187.07cm³ (Canon PowerShot A1200)
61.7mmvs 62.5mm (Canon PowerShot A1200)
29.8mmvs 30.7mm (Canon PowerShot A1200)
9.Has an optical viewfinder
Yesvs No (Canon PowerShot A1200)
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.
10.Vastly greater zoom range
5xvs 4x (Canon PowerShot A1200)
The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.
11.Significantly faster flash X-sync
0.0005svs 0.000625s (Canon PowerShot A1200)
Flash synchronization is defined as the firing of a photographic flash coinciding with the shutter admitting light to the image sensor. In general, faster flash sync speeds are better if the photographer needs to flash-fill subjects that are backlit and wants to avoid motion blur, or wants to increase depth of field by using a high aperture.
12.Sizably longer maximum focal length
140mmvs 112mm (Canon PowerShot A1200)
A longer maximum focal length allows you to focus in on a small part of a scene, and offers a narrower angle of view than shorter focal lengths.
