Canon PowerShot A4000 IS Reviews

CNET reviews the Canon PowerShot A4000 IS and writes;
“Colours were accurate throughout my tests, with the A4000 IS producing really punchy results that were consistently true to the original subject matter. Even when shooting directly towards the sun, which naturally increases the contrasts and darkens off shadows as it compensates for the increased background lighting, the A4000 IS performed well in reproducing what was visible to the naked eye.”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

Techradar reviews the Canon PowerShot A4000 IS and writes;
“The Canon A4000 IS is easy to carry with you all the time, so you’ll be inclined to use it more often – and it’s for this reason that it represents good value for the money.”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

Photographyblog reviews the Canon PowerShot A4000 IS and writes;
“The pictures we got from the A4000 IS are very good. We received the A4000 IS in the middle of one of the wettest and gloomy Aprils in the UK’s history, so the first sunny day we got was when we shot. The camera handled complex light well as well as strong colours. Primaries aren’t too over saturated, subtle colours are accurate and skin tones are realistic.”
Rating: ★★★★½

PCMAG reviews the Canon PowerShot A4000 IS and writes;
“If you’re on a budget, the Canon PowerShot A4000 IS isn’t a bad camera—as long as you are aware of its limitations. Image quality is quite good as long as you keep the ISO set at 400 and below, which will require you to use the flash in poorer light.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

Expertreviews reviews the Canon PowerShot A4000 IS and writes;
“Videos are recorded at 720p with stereo sound. Image and sound quality were both excellent and clips ran for up to 30 minutes… if a big zoom is essential and the budget is tight, the A4000 is a solid option.”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

Digitaltrends reviews the Canon PowerShot A4000 IS and writes;
“Video and audio playback was smooth as well, and zooming in and out you could tell the image stabilization mechanism was doing its job. It gets quite grainy on extreme close-ups, be forewarned.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

Pocket-lint reviews the Canon PowerShot A4000 IS and writes;
“The Canon PowerShot A4000 achieves a number of highs: it’s affordable, there’s an 8x optical zoom range with image stabilisation and the close-up macro mode are all appealing points.”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

Ephotozine reviews the Canon PowerShot A4000 IS and writes;
“The Canon Powershot A4000 IS’ strengths lie in its image quality, with excellent colour, exposure, and good levels of detail. Macro performance is also very good for a compact camera.”
Rating: ★★★½☆
