Reviews and Problems with Canon PowerShot A4000 IS

Broke rather quickly.
2 September 2014
Summary: Broke after about a year. Canon must be lowering its standards because my son's older silver canon can at least still turn on if he fiddles with the lens servos. This one won't even extend the lens out before posting a "lens error" and he never mistreated this one to the best of my knowledge. Especially since he was super sad about breaking the lens servos on his silver camera which he's now forced to use. We bought a fuji to replace this.
Summary: REALLY like this camera--takes very clear, balanced photos, lots of nice features (including movies and zoom), easy to download photos to computer with cable attachment (can use downloadable software from Canon, together with iPhoto), nice-looking and sturdy (I dropped mine, with no ill-effects). My one criticism is that the battery life is not all that long--but if you're not out all day on a photo expedition, this shouldn't be too much of a problem.
Summary: Yes, I really loved it in the beginning. Then suddenly it lost the whole lense protecter !! How could this have fallen off? Wonder what I do now? No-one has this part -my whole camera is not worth much anymore. Had several cameras in my life, this has never happened before. What a terrible loss - so very upsetting. Will Amazon do anything about this? ???
Summary: I'm a camera buff and semi-pro photographer. I've been in galleries and all that. Fine art. I've had over 40 digital cameras, as well a a bunch of film ones. This is my go-everywhere camera, believe it or not. Small, fairly light, and takes great pictures AND video! Bring the pics into Photoshop and with a couple clicks you end up with REALLY stunning shots. But even straight out of the camera I'm amazed. Especially for the money.
This was a replacement for a camera that I dropped - quick & easy to use

Summary: I had a camera just like this before, but I dropped it. This camera takes good pictures for a small, inexpensive camera. I really like that I can carry it in my purse or pocket. It is quick & easy to use! I've happy with my purchase! :) This time I bought the 2 yr. insurance for approx. $10, in case I drop my new camera.
Summary: At the begining i couldn't find all the options that it has, but with the use i found all that i needed in a very simple way, I always carry it with me and the quality of the photos is very good, not a pro but very good for amateur ;-)
