Great photos in low light and fast

Kevin Berridge, Amazon
23 February 2013
  • Summary: Bought this camera before a trip to Europe and have loved it. It's performance in low light is outstanding. I hardly ever take a picture with flash when using this camera. It does enhance colors in low light, for example the sky could be very dark but in the photo it may appear bright blue. That might not be what you're looking for, but for me I've always been really happy with the results.

Acceptable camera, but Canon wouldn't honor warranty.

S. Power, Amazon
17 January 2013
  • Summary: This camera has been a pretty good compact camera, but it recently developed a flaw where it places a dark spot on all of my pictures. I paid to send this camera it to Canon for them to do a warranty repair, and they agreed that it was in warranty, but said that the repair wasn't covered by the warranty. They wanted me to pay $140 to repair the camera.

Little jewel, CHDK available now

J$B, Amazon
7 January 2013
  • Summary: Won't add much to the other comments about features. My experience has been surprise at the jewel-like build quality and ease of use. It's worth noting that the f/2.0 really only applies to 28mm wide angle, and quickly zooms to a slower shutter than even my Canon long zoom bridge camera - so the vaunted low light is for full wide angle only. And of course zoom is not a strong suit of this camera. Image quality is excellent.

wouldn't buy one of the older or used ones

N Rabbitt, Amazon

  • Summary: I have had two of these die on me with a screen error that Canon later fixed. this was too bad because I really liked the features on this camera. I have an SD1300 which is working great for me now. The older models had a problem with a screen error which Canon wanted $100 to fix at factory.

In defense of this discontinued "overachiever": Poor man's Sony RX-300.

Samuel Chell, Amazon
9 October 2012
  • Summary: Despite highly favorable ratings from Consumer Reports, the SD4000 proved to be a more erratic camera than most Canon Elfs. Having used a number of them, I can say that the SD4000 is a solid, even heavy, nicely designed machine that works well as a "role player." Of course, its wide-aperture lens of 2.0 has since been replaced by the Sony RX300's even wider lens.

Auto mode is so-so, manual mode is impressive

Christos G, Amazon

  • Summary: I kept this in the normal point and shoot mode, and was unimpressed with it. Switched it over to manual, and that is really where this camera shines. Pretty happy with the results, in such an inexpensive camera.

Wonderful camera - even in low light

Amazon
5 July 2012
  • Summary: We have owned this camera for over a year and it has been the best point and shoot for two reasons -- (1) We DON'T NEED THE FLASH to take good pictures in decent lighting. It's amazing. I am now disgusted at seeing pictures from other cameras in indoor situations where the flash ruins the color or brightness/exposure of the subject you're shooting. Without the flash, the shots of still subjects are in focus and very natural coloring.

Great camera, Great lens, takes Great pictures!

M. Bumbaco, Amazon
27 May 2012
  • Summary: The Camera is easy to learn how to use. Picture quality indicates that this camera has an excellent lens. Colors are very vibrant. Picture quality with the flash turned off is impressive. I'm 52 years old and I was able to figure out how to use it without having to do a ton of research. Consumer Reports review of this camera was a major reason that I decided to purchase it. I found this camera to be worth what is being charged for it.

Canon Powershot SD400IS

Daniel, Amazon
11 May 2012
  • Summary: I just purchased this camera to replace a Canon SD800IS with was ruined by heavy rain. I received the camera on time and in good condition. When I started using it the lens cover would not close completely. The bottom half of the lens cover would stay partially open and would leave the lens exposed. I purchased the SD4000IS after reading several reviews including the review by DPreview.com. I am disapointed with the camera.
