From the Manufacturer
Zoom in on Wider, Steadier Shots
The 8x Optical Zoom (35mm equivalent: 28–224mm) in PowerShot A4000 IS digital camera is the most powerful ever seen in Canon’s A-Series. It gives you a huge range of potential images from a single location, which is perfect for sporting events and other occasions when your shooting stance is fixed, or times when moving in too close might disrupt the action you’re trying to capture. The lens’s 28mm wide-angle perspective puts more image in every frame for dynamic, exciting shots.
Optical Image Stabilizer
Handheld shooting can often lead to camera shake, making photos and videos blurry. Canon’s optical image stabilizer is a sophisticated system that uses lens-shift technology to correct unwanted camera movement. It makes handheld photography more practical, providing excellent image quality in many difficult shooting situations: outdoors at dusk, inside without a flash and even at the telephoto end of the zoom range without a tripod. For photos, it enables shooting at slower shutter speeds, accommodating more low-light shooting situations than ever before without having to boost ISO sensitivity. With camera shake and vibration reduced, you get a sharper, steadier image. And because it is an optical system, there is none of the image degradation typical with electronic image stabilizers.
High Resolution, Highly Advanced Performance
With the camera’s 16.0 megapixels of resolution, your images are rich and clear, with textures and tiny details faithfully reproduced even at the long end of the big 8x optical zoom. This high level of resolution is ideal for creating the largest prints and allows you the flexibility to blow up and crop any section of an image to express your creativity. The Digic 4 image processor powers the camera’s advanced systems and features, ensuring fast, reliable performance with low battery consumption.
Digic 4 Image Processor
Canon Digic image processors have set the standard for functionality and performance since their groundbreaking introduction in 1999. With each successive generation, Digic processors have brought elevated performance and powerful new features to PowerShot digital cameras. The Digic 4 image processor has ushered in a new level of picture quality and accelerated processing, making possible features such as high-speed continuous shooting, HD video and Face Detection Self-timer.
A Smarter Camera Means Better Photos
Photographers of all levels appreciate a camera – especially a go-anywhere compact digital – that takes the hassle out of capturing beautiful images. The PowerShot A4000 IS digital camera gives you smart auto – sophisticated Canon technology that makes getting that great shot as simple as pressing the shutter button. Smart auto automatically detects scenes by assessing various factors in both the background and the subject. Detected scenes are analyzed using 32 predefined shooting situations. The camera then makes optimal settings to ensure the best possible image capture when shooting still images. Smart auto also includes advanced subject detection, which allows the camera to detect and track non-human moving subjects like animals and vehicles. With smart auto, all you have to do is frame your shot and capture away.
Gorgeous HD Video From Your Still Camera
You can shoot high definition video anytime, anywhere right from the pocket-sized A4000 IS. With a simple push of the dedicated movie button, you’ll be able to instantly record every moment in motion. 720p HD video is smooth, vivid and beautifully lifelike, making it an ideal way to capture special memories. In addition to being able to shoot 720p HD video at 25 frames per second, the PowerShot A4000 IS can also shoot 640 x 480 VGA video at 30* frames per second.
Dedicated Movie Button for Easy Video Capture
It’s never been easier to shoot videos with a PowerShot digital camera. To make shooting video as natural as snapping pictures, the PowerShot A4000 IS has a dedicated movie button. No need to plan ahead, no need to search through menus on the LCD screen; when you feel a moment would be best captured in 720p HD, simply press the button and recording begins. The camera is always ready to shoot stills or video whenever you want.
With the PowerShot A4000 IS digital camera, you can also shoot video in the Apple iFrame format, which is a computer-friendly standard that speeds up importing and editing of videos. It keeps file sizes small, making it more convenient to upload or e-mail high-quality videos. The iFrame format enjoys native support in compatible Mac and Windows video applications, making it unnecessary to perform time-consuming and often quality-degrading conversions.
See the Image On a Big Screen
The PowerShot A4000 IS digital camera’s large 3.0-inch LCD screen gives you the big picture, whether you’re shooting, reviewing or showing off your images. This high-resolution screen offers a crisp, clear and bright picture. It also features Night Display for easy viewing in low light.
A Steady Image Is a Beautiful Image
The latest advance in Canon Optical Image Stabilization technology, Intelligent IS analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation. For stills, the system automatically selects among normal, panning, macro (hybrid) and tripod IS modes. When shooting video, the system automatically selects among dynamic, powered, macro and tripod IS modes. With Intelligent IS, you can concentrate on image capture, letting the camera make the most effective IS settings to assure the steadiest possible image.
Help You Won’t Need Help to Find
The PowerShot A4000 IS digital camera is designed to be fun and easy to use, even for beginners. A new help button on the camera’s exterior brings up the help menu any time you need it, right on the LCD screen. From here, you can scroll through a variety of topics that answer your questions with clear explanations, offer helpful shooting advice and show you diagrams highlighting the position of any buttons you’ll need.
More Ways to Get Creative
Scene modes are fun, easy ways to give your shots a distinctly artistic feel without the need for any extra lenses and filters. Super vivid heightens and saturates colors for eye-popping intensity. Poster effect eliminates gradations between colors for an illustrative feel. Miniature effect enhances perspective in a scene, blurring the top and bottom to make it look as if it were created with miniature models. You can also make a quirky portrait using the fisheye effect or add a beautiful single-tone effect with monochrome. Toy camera effect simulates a vintage look as it capturing the photo using a “toy” or pinhole camera.
Charge Up and Go!
The Canon PowerShot A4000 IS digital camera uses a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery. This compact, powerful battery helps make it a lightweight and slim camera. Charge-up is quick and easy, so the PowerShot A4000 IS will be ready and waiting for those special moments.
A Color Just Right for You
While the classic black camera will always be right for a lot of photographers, Canon recognizes that others will long for colors that express their individuality. Accordingly, the PowerShot A4000 IS digital camera is offered in a range of hues from subtle to vibrant, fun to chic. Take your pick from black, silver, blue, red and pink.
