Canon Powershot D20 Summary
Canon Powershot D20 Assessment
Canon's second rugged digital camera is encased in a more conventionally-designed body while providing a hefty amout of protection. The Powershot D20 can be taken underwater to a depth of 10m while being shockproof to falls from 1.5m and freezeproof down to -10C.
The D20 features an internal wide-angle 5X optical zoom lens with built-in stabilization paired with a 12 CMOS sensor with ISO 100 to 3200 sensitivity range and capable of capturing full 1080p HD video. A GPS rounds off its headline features.
Overall, the Canon Powershot D20 performs inline with such rugged cameras that always compromise on image quality due to their tiny lenses and small sensors. Still, for small prints and web sharing, the D20 produces usable results in good light.Neocamera detailed review
