Powerful 8x optical zoom

The slim, compact body boasts a 28 mm wide-angle lens with an impressive 8x optical zoom capability, giving you the flexibility to frame your perfect shot. The wide-angle lens allows you to fit more in the frame, which is perfect for group shots, whereas the 8x optical zoom range enables you to get up close and capture all the detail, even when photographing distant subjects.

Incredibly sharp images whatever the situation

The PowerShot A4000 IS benefits from Canon’s Intelligent IS technology. Whether you’re shooting stills or movies, Intelligent IS automatically identifies the shooting situation and then selects the most appropriate type of optical image stabilization from 6 modes. For example, when tracking a moving object the camera will automatically select Panning IS which will make adjustments for vertical movement, ensuring that your subject is sharp and blur-free. However, when filming distant subjects with the zoom the camera will switch to Powered IS which provides a higher level of compensation for hand movement. This allows you to focus on framing the image you want, safe in the knowledge that the camera is working to eliminate as much camera shake as possible, even if you need to move with your scene.

Large, high-quality display

The PowerShot A4000 IS features a large 7.5 cm (3.0") LCD. This high quality 230k dot screen makes framing and reviewing images easy, even from difficult angles or in bright light.

Effortless shooting, superb results

When you're taking photographs, the only thing you want to think about is your subject, so Canon’s Smart Auto mode removes the worry of deciding which settings to select. It enables the camera to intelligently select the appropriate settings so you can concentrate on your subject.

In Smart Auto mode, Canon’s Advanced Scene Detection Technology automatically analyses shooting conditions – detecting people, distance, brightness, colour and movement information – then selects the perfect setting from 32 specially defined scenes. So whether you're photographing flowers, a captivating sunset or friends in the park you can be confident you're getting the perfect image.

Smart Auto is also more than just scene detection. It allows the camera to identify moving subjects to ensure the focus and exposure are always correct. For sharp close-ups the camera automatically switches to Macro mode and Smart Flash Exposure optimises exposure and flash controls to ensure your subject is perfectly lit whilst dark and light areas are accurately reproduced.

Additionally, you can switch to Smart Auto mode at any time with just one press of the Auto button. This means you can explore different modes and settings, safe in the knowledge that you can always jump straight back to the safety of Smart Auto mode in an instant, so you’ll never miss that crucial moment.

Help button

The PowerShot A4000 IS extremely easy to use, but for times when you need a little extra guidance there is an instant Help button. This provides one-click access to helpful information – it will guide you through the basic controls of the camera and explain more advanced features, such as ISO speed.

In many modes, the camera will even apply the settings from the stills mode you are currently, allowing you to capture movies with stunning creative effects such as Monochrome for traditional black and white scenes or Miniature Effect to transform ordinary scenes into miniature scale models.

    This camera takes great photos and the zoom is pretty good, better than the 5X zoom of others. Well built and a decent brand in a choice of colours. Put up the brightness so you can see the screen in sunlight. I did this to my other camera and its made a difference. I would pick up a spare battery from ebay so you are not caught out. The colour reproduction is better than a Panasonic I tried. Good for taking on holiday or for general use although not so good in low light.

    I bought this little beauty for my partner on a special deal recommendation from Amazon. Its incredibly good. I shoot with a Canon 7D and in good light for regular street/landscape/everyday shooting, its hard to spot on the PC which camera took the shot.

    Battery life is great and its never been set to anything but full auto and it hasn't muffed a shot yet.

    Excellent value for money for an everyday compact camera or even a backup on a more serious shoot.

    This camera was bought for my wife just before a holiday in London. She used it on numerous occasions both in the dark and in the daylight, catshing the christmas festivities onto a disc. After a little editing we were surprised at the quality of the photographs considering the camera arrived on the day of our departure so she had no time to familarise herself with the finer points. All in all a very nice piece of kit, small enough for a handbag, sharp enough for good snaps, user friendly, and most of all resonably priced. She is delighted with it.

    Looked at various cameras before deciding on this model, and my wife wanted a red one. She is very pleased with the results so far

    I bought this for someone as a birthday present. It was fine for about 2 months and then the pictures taken started to look very blurry, eventually just being like a 'white-out' with nothing visible. When it was working the photos were never as good as my own Panasonic compact digital camera. I have bought Canon before and they were fine but this just seems like a cheaply made camera. Not worth the money

    I am an lorry photographer and use a Canon EOS 400 which gives me good results. However, I find it a little heavy to carry around when just out for a walk and so purchased the Powershot A4000. This fits into my pocket and gives me terrific results when photographing stationary lorries. I never leave home without it.

    Takes excellent pictures and has a large screen. Would prefer to have had a complete instruction book rather than a information disc but that seems to be the way these days.
