The 8x Optical Zoom (35mm equivalent: 28–224mm) in PowerShot A4000 IS digital camera is the most powerful ever seen in Canon’s A-Series. It gives you a huge range of potential images from a single location, which is perfect for sporting events and other occasions when your shooting stance is fixed, or times when moving in too close might disrupt the action you’re trying to capture. The lens’s 28mm wide-angle perspective puts more image in every frame for dynamic, exciting shots.
Optical Image Stabilizer
Handheld shooting can often lead to camera shake, making photos and videos blurry. Canon’s Optical Image Stabilizer is a sophisticated system that uses lens-shift technology to correct unwanted camera movement. It makes handheld photography more practical, providing excellent image quality in many difficult shooting situations: outdoors at dusk, inside without a flash, and even at the telephoto end of the zoom range without a tripod. For photos, it enables shooting at slower shutter speeds, accommodating more low-light shooting situations than ever before without having to boost ISO sensitivity. With camera shake and vibration reduced, you get a sharper, steadier image. And because it is an optical system, there is none of the image degradation typical with electronic image stabilizers.
I HIGHLY RECOMEND THIS PRODUCT TO EVERYONE
I ENCOURAGE EVERYONE, NOT JUST PHOTOGORAPHERS,BUT TO WVWRY ONE THAT JUST NEEDS A GOOD CAMERA FOR GOOD PHOTOS ;) :) :P =)

Very disappointed with this camera..Used in low-light settings and ended up with blurred pictures..It also hangs too long in between pictures so you end up missing shots..
Will go back to using my Canon Powershot SD790 IS.I never had a problem with this camera ever..

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!
