Canon's A-series has been their budget line, yet the features on these models are more than enough for the casual shooter. They're a little boxier than the ELPHs and certainly not as stylish, yet these latest models feature 16 megapixel sensors and decent zoom ranges. The A4000 adds a longer zoom range to the A3400's feature set, a useful 8x in a slightly thicker body. It still uses a touchscreen, unfortunately, but there's no alternative with the same lens.
