20 March 2015
  • 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.

CNET

  • 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.
  • 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.

TechRadar UK
29 September 2012
  • 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.
  • 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.

10 April 2013
  • 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
  • Cons: Bildrauschen, Farbsäume, Autofokus-Geschwindigkeit, Display-Auflösung
