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 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 is brilliant and was a great deal. It is just the right size and weight for me and the viewer is a good size. The photos are of a very good quality. I am loking forward to taking some photos of birds in the bird sanctuary where I often walk my dog. I am just excited to be able to pop it in my bag and be ready when out to 'snap' interesting/unusual sights.

Takes a good picture and is very compact.
Not brilliant in low light without flash even with "low light" setting.
Controls take some getting used to; it's not intuitive how to get to the scene settings.
Lovely big screen.
Good value (at £90).

Took my new purchase on holiday to Croatia and found it easy to use and handle. Quality of pictures was excellent when printed.
Only downside was no viewfinder for taking pics in bright sunshine, so found I was looking at an image of myself most of the time rather than looking at the subject being taken.
Still good value for money though.

Hi, bought this camera and used it at a 50th to get used to it. I wanted to be able to use it on our hols, had no trouble at all, simple and easy to use. Very pleased with all aspects of taking the pictures and seeing the results on camera, and they looked even better on my lap top. Would certainly recomend this cannon camera to one and all.

I received the camera quickly and well packaged, its been a little while since I last had to buy a new camera, my old one being a canon power shot A630 which had a flip screen - Loved it but cant buy it nowadays!. This little beauty took me by surprise as it didn't have the flip screen, was small and a lot lighter (something I have to get used to as in my mind cameras are supposed to be a bit chunky - but like all the mobiles, cameras appear to have gotten a lot lighter!) There are various screen shots you can take as stated in the product description e.g. you can have it phasing out at the top and sharp at the bottom, or as a fish eye which is a bit weird really but some people may like it and at least it gives you options etc. And in a more general view the pictures seem to be quite sharp. I have yet to try this out though on a close shot of a flower. The unfortunate thing though (and perhaps it was me being a bit dim) was that it didn't come with a SD memory card I will now have to buy that separately. The same goes with the case, this doesn't come with any sort of canvas case, so ive ordered one which matches the colour of the camera (blue) and is water proof, so that's another little extra you will need to buy. All in all I was humming and harring whether to give this a 3 or 4 star, but the functions of the camera and the picture sharpness really does make it a 4 in my books, its still early days and I have yet to go snapping about and haven't used the recorder so if I change my views I will update this review to reflect either a 5 or 3 depending.
