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.
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.

For moments that are best caught on video, the PowerShot A4000 IS offers the capability to record high-quality HD movies at 720p. Plus, a dedicated Movie Record button allows you to start filming instantly so you never miss a moment of the action. 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.
The PowerShot A4000 IS compatible with a range of accessories including a stylish soft case (DCC-520), a high-power external flash unit (HF-DC2), an AC adapter kit (ACK-DC90) and a spare battery (NB-11L).
Top Customer Reviews
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.
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.
I liked the price of this Canon camera and the ease of using and understanding - in fact it is very similar in set-up to my previous/current Canon camera which is bulkier and which has not got such a big zoom but has taken some excellent photos in difficult and dirty terrain. This time I have forfeited the "eye-spy" and got a much bigger back screen. On occasions this also can prove difficult to see onto in bright sunshine but it is a win-some lose-some situation.
I liked the size as it is easy to slip in my pocket and keep handy for those holiday snaps and family occasions. I wanted this bigger zoom facility for animal snaps and it also was easy to download on to my computer.
I am not sure yet about the rechargeable battery as if I was really stuck with being unable to recharge on the old camera I could use quite long-life lithium batteries - I am not yet sure what my altenatives will be on this one and have not yet had time to sit down and sort it all out. Some places off-the-beaten-track do not have good facilities for recharging.
Ease of use is obvious to me as my grandson of almost 11 borrowed it to take photos at a family Christening 2 weeks ago and mastered the basics immediately and in fact showed me how some things worked! This was such a surprise to his parents that they rang me last week for details of the camera so that they could purchase one for his birthday next week!
The size, capabilities and zoom as well as my confidence in the reliability of Canon made this for me an excellent purchase which I would recommend to anyone of any age virtually.
