In a Class of Its Own.
Loaded with first-of-its-kind features and high-end capabilities, the Canon PowerShot SD4000 IS Digital ELPH gives ELPH lovers all new reasons to step up. Never before has Canon equipped an ELPH with a back-illuminated CMOS sensor-driven HS SYSTEM or an f/2.0 lens - both of which deliver incredible images in low light. And shooting action or sporting events has never been so fun, with High-Speed Burst mode and the Super Slow Motion Movie function to mix things up. You'll control shots like a pro with Aperture- and Shutter-priority modes, and play your 720p HD movies effortlessly on your HDTV. All this from a super-slim style icon - what more could you ask?
We could reecommend this camera to anyone. wE are very happy with ours. We get good quality photos with ours. It is small enough to carry, but does the job of a much bigger camera.
Great for a quick snapshot. The auto focus is great. Wish the playback screen was a bit bigger...love the camera, tho'.
First of all I was verry satisfied about the price, I found the best offer on Adorama. In general this camera is one of the best product on the market, I was realy impressed when I used it in Low Light Condition, it makes incredible pictures even at hi-ISO and records incredible HD 720p video. The build quality is also impresive it gives trust. The only one limited thing is the zoom only 3.8x Optical zoom. But if you like just to make good pictures and amazing video quality this one is the right choice !
The ratings for this Canon SD4000 praised simple point and shoot qualities in low light conditions using the automatic mode. The camera was purchased at the last minute before attending a wedding so minimal time was spent reading and using written documentation. After reviewing the shots taken at this event, plus the pictures taken from my years old Canon SD800is I am reminded of how good the older Canon cameras are and what a poor choice this new Canon is. I will now take the needed time to review and hopefully set up this new camera to improve picture quality but I can safely say this is NOT a pick up and shoot indoor camera.
I use this compact point&shoot camera as my pocket camera with 5D Mark II. This little one has superior low-light performace. You just can't go wrong with F2.0. Plus, the red color is HOT. Highly recomend it to everyone.
Great camera to take along with you on any trip. Small and compact. Doesn't have all the whistles but most people don't use them, otherwise get a SLR. Only con I have is that image stabilization could be better with moving objects.
A great choice! This camera performs just below a DSLR and has a fast lens. Has many advanced features but is a snap to use.
It is really great and useful for someone like me who wanted to buy a DSLR, but have a very low budget. With regular camera, when you use flash, the photos will turn out not that good. But with this camera, if there are a little light at the background, and we use flash, the photos will look very beautiful. When I was in Las Vegas, I tried taking pictures with flash + the lights from the Eiffel Tower, and my photos were superb! For video: I would say that it is also superb because everything is recorded in HD.
I liked it while it worked. Great little camera! Developed a focusing problem after just three month. All photos are focused about one third the distance they should be focused on (3 meters instead of 9 meters for example), which makes for out-of focus pictures when wide apertures are selected. Tried various focus settings, narrowing down focus points to only the middles of the screen - the problem persisted. Most noticeable at wide lens settings, less with telephoto. I am sending it in for servicing.
This camera is a joy to use, the fast, sharp F2.0 lens and consistently accurate exposure metering make for excellent photos. The video quality is also excellent, with no visible rolling shutter artifact as is often seen in CMOS based cameras. It feels very solid in hand and the newer conrol layout actually works better than previous ELPHs. As with any camera, take time to fiddle with the settings a bit before doing any serious photography. A spare battery is also a wise investment for any camera and a good fast card will also improve battery life.
