The Canon Powershot D20 model was released just last year, in the month of February. This particular model is an upgraded version of the PowerShot D10, which has been around three years before the release of the Canon Powershot D20. This camera has been improved and designed for various outdoor activities and is known to be a freeze, water and dust proof camera that comes in three different colors—white, blue and yellow. Even with all this, the camera has a price tag of only $279.
The features of the Canon Powershot D20 include being waterproof to a depth of 10m, being able to function in cold temperatures up to 10 degrees Celcius, as well as being shockproof from a height of 1.5m. On top of all this, it's also dustproof, which makes it perfect for extreme adventures. The camera has a 12.1 megapixel sensor, which provides great shots even in low lighting, eliminating the need for a flash. The Canon Powershot D20 can be zoomed in 5 times while still taking high quality shots.
The Canon Powershot D20 also has GPS settings that make it easier to tag your location and help you keep track of where each of your pictures were taken. The camera has a Smart Auto that gives the user 32 different settings and its underwater functions include automatic focus for super clear shots! The Canon Powershot D20 also has a high definition video recorder with full 1080p quality. This model allows five times zooming and can be connected to a HDMI or HDTV for viewing of your photos and videos. The Canon Powershot D20 specializes in underwater photography.
The Canon Powershot D20 has a unique exterior cover and shape. It's made of rubber which provides a better grip for photographers. The buttons are large and knobby, making it easier for people with gloves to man these buttons when needed. The Canon Powershot D20 is programmed to allow you to view and check back on photos while the camera is switched off. One part of the camera that's tricky to open is the battery latch. You'll be able to figure it out, but it has an advantage when underwater since it would be hard to unintentionally open the battery cover and flood the camera.
The Canon Powershot D20 is a three inch camera and it's good to use for those who are adventurous. The camera has a great LCD screen that is clear and bright for viewing. The battery lasts long enough to take almost 280 shots, but sometimes it can take as many as 350.
The Canon Powershot D20 is a great camera to use, and compared to all the other cameras in the market, the Canon Powershot D20 offers great features along with image quality. The camera isn't perfect and there may be some features lacking in innovation but if you've tried the D10 and were impressed with it, then you'll be even happier to have the Canon Powershot D20.
