Introduction

The Canon PowerShot A4000 IS is a mid-range entry-level model sporting an 8x optical zoom lens in a body slim enough to slip into your pocket. The camera features little in the way of manual control or creature comforts relative to the more expensive models in the PowerShot lineup, but is simpler to operate. The A4000 IS is the head of Canon's entry-level "A" series and features a 16-megapixel image sensor, 3-inch 230k-dot resolution screen, and optical image stabilization. Available in blue, red, silver, pink, and black, the Canon A4000 IS goes for an MSRP of 199.99.
