    On a train/bus trip west this summer to see some of our National parks, my previous camera "died" the night before departure. When we got to the first hotel in Salt Lake City I immediately went camera shopping and decided on this model -the Canon Power Shot A4000. I spent 20 minutes reading the manual and then over the course of 11 days I took over 400 beautiful pictures that will be treasured by me forever!!! Thank you, Canon!

    On my recent vacation I used this camera for the first time. I bought it as I am a long time Cannon user, this is my 6th Canon camera, and I wanted a simple point and shoot. I found it simple to use, light weight and it took fairly good pictures. However, it has some major short comings: the LCD is diificult to see in bright sunlight and there is no view finder to use as an alternative. I also found battery life to be short as I was changing batteries more than once a day. Another major design flaw is that you can't recharge the battery using the USB connector. That means you must remember the bring the charger.

    Comments about Canon PowerShot A4000 IS Blue Digital Camera:

    Works great for snapshots and family photos--simple to use--pictures are great--however there is some delay when taking a picture and the subject can move and you "lose the moment".

          Comments about Canon PowerShot A4000 IS Blue Digital Camera:

          I have had this camera for less than a year and have had it break twice already. The first time the lens wouldn't come out and the second time it wouldn't flash or use any lighting at all so every picture turned out really dark. When the camera was working, it took good pictures and was nice to carry around. It had some good features too. But if it breaks, then they are useless.

My only complaint is that there was too much delay between pictures and that on the LCD, the images are grainy, but the pictures turn out great. One of the best, most affordable, cameras I have owned.

                      2 weeks after using this camera, a piece of debri some how got behind the lens and can not be removed. The flash burnt out after 5 months of use. NOT warrantied. Warranty is only 90 days. the pictures where awesome but the Price and the inferior construction for a Canon product,, I will warn anyone not to buy. The flash burning out was my turning point to flag this camera as well as the entire power shot series there all made the same!

                        I wanted a simple P & S to keep in my bag. I got the A400IS a month ago and I'm happy with it overall, but can't find a way to change the aspect ratio without losing resolution. I would love to be able to change the ratio to 3:2 so I can print in 6" x 4" size without losing too much of the photo in the cropping process. So far this is the only disappointment I have with this camera - it gets a bit tedious having to resize every photo manually before having them printed. Otherwise I'm pleased with the performance, easy of use and quality of both the camea and the prints.
