Canon PowerShot A4000 IS

 

Canon's PowerShot A4000 IS crams an 8x optical zoom and image stabilisation into its small body. But can this budget point-and-shoot compact deliver where it counts? The Canon PowerShot A4000 achieves a number of highs: it's affordable, there's an 8x...

Close-up macro, budget price point, centre focus works well, includes AF-point zoom in to confirm focus

Misfocusing in auto mode, face detection can go haywire, slow focus and shot-to-shot times, competition offer more extensive features

The Canon PowerShot A4000 achieves a number of highs: it’s affordable, there’s an 8x optical zoom range with image stabilisation and the close-up macro mode are all appealing points.

Canon PowerShot A4000 IS review

 

Canon's flagship A-series compact with 8x optical zoom

Slim metal body ; Simple to use ; Good low ISO performance ; 8x optical zoom

Slow shot-to-shot ; Short battery life ; No optical zoom for video ; Poor in low light ; Some rivals go wider/longer

Buying GuideBest Canon cameras 2012 The Canon PowerShot A4000 IS is a 16MP camera that sits at the top of Canon's A-series of affordable, beginner-level compacts. And It really is a compact camera: viewed from the front, the Canon A4000 is not much...

A mixed bag, but it might be worth living with image quality concerns and slow performance to get an 8x zoom in such a slim, low-cost camera

Canon PowerShot A4000 IS

 

The Canon PowerShot A4000 IS can capture sharp photos and has a nice 8x zoom lens. It keeps noise low at higher ISOs, but sacrifices a good amount of image detail in doing so.

Sharp photos. 8x zoom range. Optical image stabilization.

Slow to start up and recycle. Excessive noise reduction. Limited to digital zoom during video recording.

Performance and Conclusions The A4000 isn't the fastest camera in the world—but it is by no means the slowest. It can start up and shoot in 2.2 seconds, requires you to wait 1.4 seconds between shots, and records a modest 0.2 second shutter lag. It did...

The Canon PowerShot A4000 IS performed beyond our expectations for a sub $200 point-n-shoot. While it doesn't have a ton of bells and whistles, it captures nice 16-megapixel photos, has a versatile 8x zoom, and it won't break the bank. Read more in our...

Nice compact frame with durable metal construction ; Comes in five colors ; Captures some very nice 16-megpaixel images ; Low noise for a Sub $200 point-n-shoot ; Records nice 720p HD video ; Smart Auto captures great photos, with no fuss over camera...

LCD screen shows cooler images than what are captured ; No HDMI output ; Optical zoom not available while recording movies ; No the greatest battery life; we recommend you snag a spare pack
