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.

    I have bought this camera as a replacement for my Canon A640.
    Pros:
    Photo quality is very good and it's simple to use. Comparing photos from A4000 and G10 which is much more expensive it's hard to tell the difference - maybe if you're an expert, but clearly not an average user.

    Cons:
    Battery life - lasts for 1-2 days when you use camera on holiday so you need to take a charger with you or buy a spare battery. I guess that's the price you pay for a pocket size.

    In summary, great camera FOR THE MONEY that you pay.

    A great camera, love the zoom, so much better than the bog standard camera. Auto does a nice job or you've got all those extra settings if you want to play about with them. Very glad I made this purchase, and it works with the card out of my old camera, so I could try it out straight away!

    Incredible value (an Amazon special offer) and a really good product. It's unusual to get a good optical zoom (8X)in such a small, compact camera. Combined with it's 16MP and 3 inch LCD screen, this feature makes it an unusally good small camera to carry with you in a pocket. I would have preferred to have an optical viewfinder as well, but the large, clear built-in screen will be suitable for most occasions. All round, a good buy

    Very disappointed with this camera, very "noisy" images in anything other than bright sunlight, indoors using the flash is even worse, I have a five year old olympus SP550uz which performs far better than this, I only paid half the RRP and thought I was getting a bargain, perhaps there is a good reason for the price reduction, camera returned for a Fujifilm Finepix F660EXR hope this performs better

    I love photography but don't always want to carry my Digital SLR and gear around so opted
    for this to ensure I always have a camera with me to catch those unexpected shots. With 16 megal pixels
    and various functions it is quite a versatile little camera. However, it is a very small camera and handling
    it can be a bit fiddly but overall, value for mone and good snaps make it a handy accessory.

    Good camera, so good this is a replacement for my previous A4000 which i loved and lasted me a little over a year. One downside is you have to be careful to not accidentely activate the shutter button when it is in a confined space ie your pocket as this can damage it and can break the mechanism which i think is what happened to my original one [it would probably stand a few mishaps before breaking and i think this is not isolated to this camera alone]. A compact case was included which is a good thing and the package and delivery was o k. No box or instructions which was not an issue for me as i already have that as well as a cable to attach to my laptop which also was not included , most instructions are on the camera itself and are pretty easy to follow even without much techno knowledge . Info and spare parts can probably all be got on line so not a major problem. Camera as described with little noticeable wear there were more than one to choose from when i ordered having waited a while for more choice which i am glad i did as availability of second hand products can vary a lot.
