Canon 4251B003AA overview

  • 1Description

The Canon PowerShot SD4000 IS Digital ELPH Camera is a small camera with big camera features. The 3.8x optical zoom lens has a blazing fast f-stop of f/2.0. This allows you to shoot in low-light, and you can also create out of focus backgrounds with sharp subjects. The 28-105mm lens (35mm equivalent) gives you the flexibility to shoot a variety of subjects.

The 10.0 megapixel CMOS sensor along with Canon's advanced DIGIC 4 image processor are the main components in the Canon HS System. This system along with the camera's bright f/2.0 lens, ISO settings of up to 3200, and optical image stabilization allow you to get quality images in low-light.

You can compose your images and play them back on the bright 3" LCD monitor. The display has a wide viewing angle and is easy to see even in bright light. Perfect exposure is easy with auto mode and the 23 scene modes for difficult conditions, but advanced users have complete control with aperture and shutter priority mode. In aperture-priority mode, you set the aperture and the camera automatically selects an appropriate shutter speed. This lets you create sharp subjects with beautifully blurred backgrounds, or landscapes with foreground, middle ground and background all in focus. Shutter-priority mode lets you choose a shutter speed while the camera automatically selects the aperture. Higher shutter speeds are great for catching stop-action shots of moving subjects, while lower shutter speeds can create atmospheric blur.

Take your photos to the next level with the camera's creative effect modes. Miniature Effect creates an illusion where very large objects appear in miniature proportions. You can also use the Fisheye Effect that uses barrel distortion to warp the image around the center, giving a distinctive curvature effect to the photo.

Action photos are easy to take with high-speed burst mode that allows you to shoot 8.4 fps when you hold down the shutter button. If you want to capture your subject in motion the SD4000 captures 720p HD video. You can get creative with the Super Slow Motion Movie function. Whether you're going for a dreamy, creative slant when documenting family moments, or making a highlight film of your kids' greatest sports plays, you'll love the high quality capture of this feature. You can play back video or stills on your HDTV by connecting the camera directly to the TV with its mini-HDMI connector.

Canon HS System
The Canon HS System takes the frustration out of low-light shooting. The system delivers clear, blur-free photos with all the ambiance intact, and frees you from the sometimes unwanted effects of using the flash. Beautiful low-light shots are possible at both low and high ISO speeds, and the dynamic range is expanded to retain maximum detail in highlight and shadow areas.
Bright f/2.0 Lens
The Canon PowerShot SD4000 IS Digital ELPH lens sports an f/2.0 aperture, perfect for creating enticing portraits, by drawing attention to the face and blurring the background.
High-Speed Burst Mode
High-Speed Burst is needed when you're trying to capture fast-moving action. In High-Speed Burst mode, the camera automatically shoots continuously at 8.4 fps when you hold down the shutter button. This mode lets you shoot sporting events, kids in motion, wildlife and any situation with unpredictable movement.
Shooting Modes
The camera features 23 advanced shooting modes for the best photos under difficult conditions.
Aperture and Shutter Priority
For photography enthusiasts the ability to control aperture and shutter speed is key. The Aperture and Shutter priority modes on the SD4000 make it easy for anyone to take extra control over the look and feel of their photos. In Aperture-priority mode you set the aperture and the camera automatically selects an appropriate shutter speed. This lets you create sharp subjects with beautifully blurred backgrounds, and landscapes with foreground, middle ground and background all in focus. Shutter-priority mode lets you choose a shutter speed while the camera automatically selects the aperture. Higher shutter speeds are great for catching stop-action shots of moving subjects, while lower shutter speeds can create atmospheric blur.
Creative Effects
The camera offers creative effects similar to those found in certain professional lenses. Miniature Effect creates an illusion where very large objects appear in miniature proportions. The Fisheye Effect uses barrel distortion to warp the image around the center, giving a distinctive curvature effect to the photo.
Shoot Video in HD and Enjoy Easy HD Playback
The Canon PowerShot SD4000 lets you record video in beautiful 720p high definition (1280 x 720 pixels). The camera also makes it easy to enjoy HD movies (and still photos) on your HDTV with a mini-HDMI connector for direct connection to a high-definition TV monitor. You'll enjoy the HD experience with no degradation of image or audio in the signal, plus the ability to display up to 130 still images at once.
Super Slow Motion Movie Function
Give your movies a whole new look with the Super Slow Motion Movie function. Whether you're going for a dreamy, creative slant when documenting family moments, or making a highlight film of your kids' greatest sports plays, you'll love the high quality capture of this feature.

    Canon 4251B003AA reviews

    PowerShot SD4000 IS Digital ELPH Camera (Red) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 113.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bright lens and sharp images I have been using the Canon SD450 for five years and after 10,000 photos I was ready to replace the camera. My new SD4000 IS has no trouble with low light photos, even in poorly lit rooms the image snaps bright and sharp. I'm an obsessive macro photography nut and this new model gets even better shots - because of the shorter focal length plus the brighter lens. The LCD screen could have been better protected. It is flush with the camera back and is actually the only flat surface on the camera, making it the only face to set it down on a table without it falling over. The screen should have been recessed a bit in the body, it's bound to scratch up he screen over time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best point and shoot yet Untill Cannon comes out with a version of this camera with Infa-red and night vision and weighs 1 oz, this is the best point and shoot I have ever held in my hands. The super big f 2.0 is great for night shots of drunk friends even if you have shakey hands like I do. Super slow motion video feature is quite fun especialy when there is a fast moving street brawl going on in the alley behind your house. HD Video is clear but has some lighting problems when you zoom in while shooting. Solution, dont zoom in. The black model had a slight wrinkle paint texture effect for improved grip with sweaty or greasy fingers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great camera, great sales help! This is my FIRST digital camera, I was actually nervous coming into the store not knowing that I would want to enter the digital camera world. The person who made all the difference was the man behind the counter Norman Perkel. He was extremely patient, compared features of a couple of models based upon my checklist and this camera was the one. I have been able to photograph people pets and entertainment with still shots and short videos with great results. I was skeptical based upon my preference for the 'warmth' of 35mm photos, however the clarity and quality of the images has been extremely impressive, even for a newbie like me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding sub-compact I just spent 4 days in Washington, DC visiting many museums, monuments and historic sites. My wife and I took over 200 shots with the SD4000. Only a few were discarded. This camera works beautifully both indoors and outdoors. The F2 lens is what sold me. The indoor shots without flash come out as good as the ones I took with flash. In the past many shots would have required using an SLR. I spent years carrying SLR cameras, extra lenses etc. Too much weight when you're supposed to be enjoying yourself! I swore that from now on if I can't put it in my pocket it's not coming. I think that Canon has finally achieved something in a sub-compact that's head and shoulders above the competition.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Camera I take this little camera with me whenever I think there will be a memory worth photographing. I purchased this camera for its ability to take better pictures in low-light conditions (where many of my memories seem to occur), and I was not disappointed. While there is still a clear degradation in quality in low-light vs. daylight, I don't get the completely unusable blurred photographs that my older SD400 used to give me. My second favorite feature is the super slow motion videos. I'm a big fan of high-speed photography of physical phenomenon, and the fluid videos I made of water dropping into a glass and a campfire at night were very interesting and a lot of fun. The only complaint I have so far is that the camera doesn't balance on a flat surface, like a table or countertop, due to its curved design. I was used to doing this before for group photos in a pinch, but for this camera, a photographer or a tripod is required.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Some disappointments with the SD4000 I use this tiny camera for general snapshots, when I don't want to carry a bulky SLR or bother with a lot of careful settings. In general, the performance so far (limited experience) is very good. But I have some disappointments: 1. The program mode favors ISO125 too heavily when ISO is set to Auto. It uses ISO125 even with shutter speed of 1/30 and aperture of f/2.0. I would rather use a faster shutter and smaller aperture, even with a bit more noise at higher ISO. My last point-and-shoot was the SD700, which had a HI Auto ISO setting. I miss that. 2. I bought this model because of the advertised f/2.0 aperture. It turns out that it is f/2.0 at 28mm, but go to 29mm and the max is f/3.2. That's too fast a drop. I'd expect maybe f/2.5 or so. 3. The default is too saturated, especially the greens. Fortunately I can adjust the saturation. But then I can't use full Auto mode. 4. The software no longer has a delete photos from camera after download option.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from HIGHLY recommend! I love my DSLR, but sometimes, I just don't want to lug that beast around. So I got this point and shoot to keep in my purse at all times so I will never miss another photo-op. I bought the PowerShot SD4000 because I think Canon makes the best point and shoots. I settled on this one particularly for the CMOS sensor that is best for low-light and will not eat up the battery. This camera is awesome- takes tack-sharp pictures and settles on the focus quickly. I'm still getting used to the fact that it doesn't have a view-finder, but that leaves room for a much bigger screen which I totally dig. The menus are very easy to navigate, I'm thankful I haven't been forced to read the manual! The video quality is surprisingly good as well. If you're looking for a mega-zoom, however, this is probably not the camera for you. Other than that, I couldn't be happier with it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE This camera My first grandchild was recently born and I wanted a small camera I could carry in my purse all the time. The size is right.I also wanted a camera that took quality pictures in low light settings. After reading reviews for days I went ahead and purchased this camera. Again, this camera fit that bill.I don't have any complaints. I am just happy not lugging around full size cameras and having it with me so I don't miss any precious moments.
