    The little camera is a charmer. The picture quality is color perfect. Has a big LCD display. The response time of the controls and zoom are very snappy. It has 8x optical zoom and if you keep your finger on the zoom it continues after a slight warning pause onto digital zoom for 32x. Yeah, the pic will get a bit grainy at that level but you’ve got lots of pixels to work with. What I really like is the light weight and it fits into my shirt pocket. Or, get the Case Logic case and snug it into your pants pocket or a purse. It’s so light, you will actually take this one with you and use it. The price is great for the quality and I love the blue color. Yes, the purist will say there are compromises with a super small camera like this but it’s not a concern for the average person taking snapshots and the occasional movie. I’ve had larger Canons but I like this one the best because it’s usable and has plenty of features. Macro photography (closeups) is automatic and really easy. Canon did a great job on this camera.

    Nice camera for the money, October 20, 2012

    This is my fourth or fifth Canon digital P&S, over the years I’ve worn all the others out. This one has lived up to my expectations of Canon quality. All the controls do take a bit of experimentation to figure out, but you can leave it on AUTO and let the camera do all the work. The only disadvantage for me, there is no manual control of shutter speed and F-stop. However, in P mode you can index the exposure (+/-) and set the ISO speed for some creativity. The pre-programed modes have a good variety and they all basically work giving you the desired effects. Image quality is excellent IMHO for any P&S camera in this price range. There is almost no difference in image quality between ISO 100 and 200. ISO 400 begins to show a tiny bit of noise or artifacts. ISO 800 and 1600 do show some noise but it looks to me like the camera automatically despeckles the picture, which eliminates most of the noise but noticeably softens the focus. Close focus mode works accurately. A couple of hints: First, set the camera to ISO 100 (rather than AUTO ISO) and you will get great pictures in most lighting conditions. Second, learn to use the white balance for the appriate lighting conditions (sunlight, cloudy, tungsten, etc.) Although the auto white balance works, it often won’t work as well as setting it for the proper balance. Also, learn to set the flash functions. You often don’t need flash to get a great picture and with the flash off you’ll save battery charge. You can certainly preview your pictures to get the best results. Need to get that quick picture with no time to set the adjustments? Just hit the AUTO button!

    Strengths:
    Very small and compact, fits in shirt pocket when turned off.
    Excellent image quality with very adequate zoom range.
    Large easy to see LCD screen.
    Easy to use AUTO-mode with plenty of pre-defined creative modes.
    Rechargeable Lithium Ion battery.
    Camera can be set for personal preferences, like sound volume and LCD brightness.
    Rapid downloading of pictures to your computer.

    Weaknesses:
    No optical view finder.
    Controls are small and a bit cramped.
    Zoom control is in an awkward position.
    No case or SD card included.

    Great features. Image quality is lacking., May 8, 2012

    I purchased this camera to replace a PowerShot SD780 IS ELPH that I have had for 3 years. The A4000 has decent reviews on other sites, so I bit. I wish I would have paid more and bought another Canon SD/ELPH.

    One thing the A4000 only takes 720p video at 25fps. My old SD780 did at 30fps.

    For my review, I am almost directly comparing the A4000 to my old SD780 which is 3 years old.

    A4000 Pros:
    1) Taking video with the steadyshot works very well.
    2) Miniature effect and other modes are fun
    3) Takes fast photos
    4) Zoom is phenomenal. 8x optical + 4x digital.
    5) View screen is large and sharp
    6) Construction feels really solid

    A4000 Cons:
    1) Video seems choppy and heavily compressed (blocky) compared to the SD780
    2) 720p is only at 25fps when most other models are 30fps
    3) Photos don’t seem as sharp as the SD780
    4) Sound recording quality isn’t as clear as the SD780
