    Love this camera! 3/17/2013

    I bought this camera to upgrade from the Canon Powershot I previously had. What a great investment! Super easy to use, and a great value! I love that the camera is so compact, and does not require AA batteries. It takes great pictures, and uploading is a breeze!

    HELPFUL?: Yes No

    Good value 3/15/2013

    I got this camera for hiking and active trips where there is a good chance it might get broken, so I didn't want to spend too much yet still get a good zoom. This model really fits the bill. It's quite basic, but it gets the job done.

    HELPFUL?: Yes No

    good standard camera 12/12/2012

    My husband could use a few more features, but I'm happy with a good "point and shoot" camera, since I'm already baffled by a few things this camera can do:)

    HELPFUL?: Yes No

    No problems and as advertised 11/27/2012

    I've read only good reviews of this camera, realizing it is only a point & shoot. Looking forward to putting it to use. The first couple of shots looked good.

    HELPFUL?: Yes No

    Love Canon Cameras 11/25/2012
    Tom from Rural New Jersey  

    Love Canon Cameras especially when they are bargain priced on Buy.Com! This compact packs a wallop and has features you can't believe at the size and price! Under $100 - half price - UNBELIEVABLE! I bought this camera to give as a birthday gift and my friend flipped when he saw it. He loves it! This is the 2nd camera I bought here and both were Canon and both were CHEAP compared to local stores! Thanks!

    HELPFUL?: Yes No

    Nice little camera 11/23/2012

    Ordered as a gift, but it had all the features my girlfriend wanted - nice basic little camera, takes good pictures (decent in darker lighting), and the price dropped again. This one had all the features that she needed, and seeing as how it was less expensive than a slightly better Sony I was considering (with more features) it was the right product for us at the right price. I also own a Cannon camcorder that I have had no problems with (except that cannon uses a weird file format for video)

    HELPFUL?: Yes No

    Easy to use 11/21/2012

    Just got this camera and it's simple to use. Very nice viewing screen and it fits in my pocket. It was just what I was looking for.

    HELPFUL?: Yes No

    Super-fast delivery 11/20/2012

    Can't beat it for the price 11/2/2012
    Daniel from Miami, Fl.   

    The Canon A4000 series is great for a compact camera. It has lots of features, is well built and is fashionable. Small and powerful you will probably not have any complaints. Larger hands may be a problem, I suggest seeing it in person before buying.

    HELPFUL?: Yes No

    nice 11/1/2012

    HELPFUL?: Yes No

    Good for the $169 4/11/2012
    Len from CO  

    Good camera for the $169. Would be better if it were wireless or touch screen.
