28mm wide, 8x optical zoom
A versatile, Canon 8x optical zoom lens lets you get closer to distant subjects and focus on the detail while the 28mm wide-angle fits more in the frame for sweeping landscapes and great group shots.
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.
Capturing all the detail from the genuine Canon lens the 16MP sensor delivers superb quality images that are perfect for large-scale prints (A3+) or creative cropping.
With the camera's 16.0 Megapixels of resolution, your images are rich and clear, with textures and tiny details faithfully reproduced even at the long end of the big 8x Optical Zoom. This high level of resolution is ideal for creating the largest prints, and allows you the flexibility to blow up and crop any section of an image to express your creativity. The DIGIC 4 Image Processor powers the camera's advanced systems and features, ensuring fast, reliable performance with low battery consumption.
