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

Make no mistake, this is an entry-level point and shoot if you've ever seen one. At first glance, though, you might be like me and figure you're getting a higher-end model – it's got a cleaner, sturdier look and feel to it than many of the budget...

Nice, simple control interface ; Inner-navigation is incredibly simple ; Just enough extra options to keep exploring

You’re limited with it comes to ISO ; Average low light performance at best

While the PowerShot A4000 IS isn’t going to blow any minds, it will fit the bill as a dependable, quality camera for quite a few.

Canon PowerShot A4000 ISDigital Camera Review

 

The Canon PowerShot A4000 IS is a mid-range entry-level model sporting an 8x optical zoom lens in a body slim enough to slip into your pocket. The camera features little in the way of manual control or creature comforts relative to the more expensive...

The Canon A4000 IS is as about as simple a point-and-shoot as it gets. With little in the way of flashy design, headline-grabbing features, or manual control, you’d be forgiven for thinking that the camera wasn’t capable of great images. In great...

Under the right conditions, the Canon PowerShot A4000 IS is a camera capable of capturing some very nice photos, although you'll quickly lose detail if you set its ISO too high. Its optically stabilized 8x zoom lens is impressive when you consider the...

Sharp photos. 8x zoom range. Optical image stabilization

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

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.

A scientific, in-depth analysis with side-by-side comparisons

Stunning color accuracy for a compact camera; Decent sharpness with good macro ability

Lack of control an issue for all but novice shooters; Slow shot-to-shot times and poor high ISO performance
