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.
*Actual frame rate is 29.97 fps.
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.
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!

A nice P & S
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.

Lens keeps getting stuck
I haven't been particularly impressed with this camera. I got it 9 months ago brand new, and since that time, the lens always jammed. I called it in for a warranty claim four months ago but on the factory reconditioned camera that they replaced mine with the lens jammed badly and the camera is now unusable. I'm currently in the process of making a second warranty claim in less than a year on that camera, hence the low rating.

Great Camera for Family Activities
This camera is an excellent choice for general family use. Canon quality & durability in the construction give me peace in letting my seven year old carry it around our acreage snapping photos at random. 16 mp & 8x optical zoom give me the photo quality I need to capture the special moments in my hobbies (son's first buck, etc.). Intuitive software makes it easy to edit, delete, and back up my photos. In a word...thrilled.
