The Canon EOS 4000D is the most budget-friendly Canon DSLR and features an 18MP APS-C-size sensor.
It uses Canon's DIGIC 4+ image processor which offers an ISO range of 100-6400, expandable to 12800, as well as 3 fps burst shooting.
It features a 9-point AF system with a cross-type sensor at the center. The 4000d uses a 2.7-inch, 230,000-dot LCD or, of course, an optical viewfinder.
It features a host of scene modes, including a Scene Intelligent Auto mode, plus numerous creative filters. Full HD can be captured at 30p, 25 or 24p.
The 4000D also has Wi-Fi for sharing images via Canon's Camera Connect app.
The Canon EOS 4000D is completely made of plastic, including the mount. The same applies to the EF-S 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6 zoom lens. The two therefore form one extremely light whole. A weight of 630 grams for a camera with standard zoom is not much, and you can easily take the 4000D with you. The zoom lens is specially made for this camera and has no image stabilization. This of course reduces costs but means that you have to increase the speed of the camera in low light in order to avoid blurred shots. The 18-megapixel sensor is a somewhat older model that was included in almost all APS-C models from Canon a few years ago. Other things that Canon has saved on are the viewfinder without diopter adjustment, the relatively small screen for modern sizes and the limited number of buttons. There is no separate on/off switch, but the 'off' position is simply on the selector. What do you get for so little money? A new camera that gives you access to the entire Canon range of EF-S and EF lenses. A body that is easy to use thanks to Canon's good interface and with which you can take pictures with the well-known Canon specs praised by many photographers. A camera and lens with which you can, with sufficient light, make good photos.
The body of the EOS 4000D is a study in cost savings. To begin with, it is completely made of plastic, including the mount. Apart from that mount, we have no problem with plastic bodies. They can easily endure years of enthusiastic amateur use. That mount means that you should not change lenses very much. If you want more telephoto, you could consider upgrading to 18-135mm or 18-200mm, so you only have to put the lens on once. We do not find an on/off switch on the body. It is integrated in the selection button for the exposure modes. It is a simple and effective solution, although it means that sometimes you have to turn the selector dial more to use your favorite setting. With a separate on/off switch, you can of course simply leave the camera in the mode with which you prefer to work. There is also no button to fold up the flash. Folding and collapsing is simply a matter of moving the flash manually. On the back, we find the 2.7" screen and the usual Canon buttons. Only the texts that are normally on the buttons are now printed on the body, so Canon did not have to print every button. What is strange is that almost all buttons have a different shape. You would say: make them all the same. That is even cheaper to produce. The tolerances are good, and nothing breaks the 4000D. Also, in this price class, Canon knows best how to make a good body.
SCREEN AND VIEWFINDER
The viewfinders of entry models from Canon are, as usual, quite small. But with other brands that’s no different, unless you switch to mirrorless cameras with electronic viewfinders. A large optical viewfinder is expensive and also, inescapably, bigger and heavier than the compact pentaprism viewfinder of the 4000D. It is possible to work with it, though spectacle wearers may regret the lack of a diopter setting. The screen is smaller than we are used to from many Canon entry models and the resolution is not very high at 230,000 pixels. If this is your first camera, then of course you will not mind because you’re not accustomed to bigger.
MENU AND OPERATION
The menus are what we expect from Canon: logical and clear. And of course they are a bit shorter than on, for example, a Canon EOS 5D Mark IV. There is less on this camera. But what is on it, you can easily find, and it will not take long to understand the 4000D.
With the 18-megapixel sensor of the EOS 4000D, you can make beautiful, sharp shots with a lot of detail. Actually, it is rather the kit lens that is the limiting factor in terms of image quality rather than the sensor. Put a 50mm f/1.8 from Canon (or Yongnuo) on this camera, and you suddenly see a significant increase in sharpness. Of course, the sensor is not as good as the one in an EOS 80D or M50, but then we are talking about cameras where the body alone is twice as expensive as this kit.
The sensor shows its age as soon as you start to push the dynamic range to the maximum. The standard profile of Canon is cool, with a lot of contrast and nice, deep shadows. If you open it up, to reveal extra details or if you try to lighten an underexposed image, you will soon see noise. There is still some room for maneuver in the RAW files, but not as much as with modern sensors. Of course, you will not see much of it if you do not do a lot of post-editing or if you use the jpegs directly from the camera.
The color reproduction has been one of Canon's strengths for years and the reason why many photographers remain loyal to the brand. Sassy colors and strong contrasts, but at the same time few annoying overtones in skin tones or shadows ensure beautiful reproduction.
