Summary: For a beginner-level camera with a sub-$200 price point, it's not really surprising to see that the Canon PowerShot A4000 IS is a pretty good camera when shooting outdoors in good light and tends to struggle when shooting indoors in low light. Those types of pluses and minuses are pretty common with a beginner-level camera.
Summary: The Canon PowerShot A4000 IS is a very compact camera that's easy to use, with dedicated help screens for beginners. It features a high resolution and a long zoom but there's more noise in the results than there ought to be, and some light streaking in movies. While very well priced, spending a little more would pay dividends.
Pros: Compact design; Accurate colour reproduction; Inexpensive.
Cons: More noise in some results than there should be; light streaking in movies; No optical zoom in video mode.
Summary: Canon's flagship A-series compact with 8x optical zoom
Pros: Slim metal body, Simple to use, Good low ISO performance, 8x optical zoom, The Canon PowerShot A4000 IS is easy to get to grips with via its intuitive menu navigation and controls, and a Smart Auto mode that's mostly effective.
Cons: Slow shot-to-shot, Short battery life, No optical zoom for video, Poor in low light, Some rivals go wider/longer, It's a slow-shooter, and the disappointing high ISO performance and so-so image stabilisation mean that it's not a particularly good choice for low light photography.
Conclusion: 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. But the auto mode’s autofocus is hit and miss, the camera’s image quality is nothing special, it’s rather slow to operate, has so-so battery life and, despite its low price, there are other models out there with wider-angle lenses, longer zoom ranges (10x with image stabilisation) and...
Pros: Close-up macro, budget price point, centre focus works well, includes AF-point zoom in to confirm focus
Cons: Misfocusing in auto mode, face detection can go haywire, slow focus and shot-to-shot times, competition offer more extensive features
Excerpt: Camera manufacturers have started to come to their senses and called a truce on the megapixel race – something that has been fairly disastrously for compact cameras' image quality. However, a new battlefront is being drawn over zoom ranges. Our natural inclination is to roll our eyes wearily, but in fact, this could be a good thing.
Conclusion: Esta puede ser una excelente opción como la primera cámara familiar o para aquellos jóvenes que buscan una cámara digital compacta, cuyo costo no sea elevado y ofrezca buena calidad de imagen.
Pros: Es un modelo que ofrece una buena relación costo beneficio. Su diseño compacto la hace fácil de llevar a todas partes.
Cons: El alcance del zoom no es muy bueno y en la modalidad de video no puedes usarlo.
Excerpt: Fazit: Eine ordentliche Ausstattung zum fairen Preis zeichnen die PowerShot A4000 IS aus. Die Bildqualität überzeugt jedoch nur bei Tageslicht, dann aber richtig. Bei Schwachlicht stören Bildrauschen und der geringe Dynamikumfang. Die Geschwindigkeit der Kamera ist zu langsam.
Pros: Bildqualität bei Tageslicht, Einfache Bedienung, 8fach-Zoom zum günstigen Preis
