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 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.

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..
