Canon Powershot A4000 Camera Reviews Roundup


TechRadar - Oct 03 2012
"If you're looking for a fuss-free family compact camera, then the Canon PowerShot A4000 IS's versatile 8x zoom range, good build quality and undemanding point-and-shoot operation are likely to impress. However, while Canon has delivered a reasonable set of features for the price, there are some sore points. With its slow shot-to-shot rate and lacklustre con..." More »

"The sensor is a 16-megapixel 1/2.3-inch CCD delivering 4,608x3,456-pixel images. That's an awful lot of pixels on a small chip. Unfortunately, there is some noise evident in images, even at comparatively low sensitivities. I performed my tests with the A4000 IS set to fully automatic, using the automatic white balance and sensitivity settings to emulate the..." More »

"The PowerShot A4000's 16-megapixel images are good enough for their purpose - casual snaps - though aren't likely to blow your socks off. For the target market though it's not going to be a major concern. The shots that come out of the camera are bright, well exposed, full of colour and more than do the job. However, closer inspection shows chromatic aberra..." More »

It's a digital compact that works well as a day tripper camera - something to throw in a bag pocket or slip in a coat before setting out with the family. The wide-angle lens will help capture those vistas while the 8x optical zoom should provide adequate coverage to afford you the luxury of..." More »

"There is very little barrel and pincushion distortion, with no vignetting noticed. There was some purple fringing in the shot of the trees above and some chromatic abberation (CA) in the shots of Thoresby Hall at both wide and telephoto zoom. The macro mode lets you shoot with the subject roughly 1cm from the front of lens, it's also possible to zoom slight..." More »

"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 lighting conditions, however, the A4000 IS is a sterling performer. The A4000 IS certainly struggles in several..." More »
