3.0 out of 5 stars Takes good pics but NO optical zoom in movie mode, June 2, 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Canon PowerShot A4000IS 16.0 MP Digital Camera with 8x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom 28mm Wide-Angle Lens with 720p HD Video Recording and 3.0-Inch LCD (Blue) (OLD MODEL) (Electronics)
Good solid camera, high quality built and looks, nice LCD screen and easy user-friendly functions. Takes good pics and records HD movies.....only one problem, HD movie mode DOES NOT HAVE Optical Zoom. Which means, if you do zoom (digital zoom) while making HD movies, it'll start blurring. So that's the only big downside, other than than...it's a great camera, just not a good camcorder.

I think 'guy' (reviewer) pointed out that it does zoom but only in digital and not optical mode.
