Canon PowerShot D20

 

Hands-on with Canon's latest tough, waterproof compact.

Water, dust, shock and freeze proof ; Big buttons make it easy to operate ; Good range of shooting modes and digital filters ; Super Slow Motion movie recording

No manual control ; Top buttons a little close together

On the back of the D20 you’ll find a 3in, 460k-dot PureColour II LCD monitor, which represents a fairly substantial upgrade over the 2.5in, 230k-dot screen found on the D10. Indeed, the screen on the Canon PowerShot D10 was always one of its weaker...

Canon PowerShot D20

 

We've tested a whole bunch of tough, rugged and waterproof digital compact cameras. They may well be shockproof, freezeproof and dustproof too, but, truth be told, no company has got the full package quite right after many years' worth of attempts....

Waterproof, tough, rugged, GPS, lens-based stabilisation, 3-inch 416k-dot LCD

Awkward design, bunched up zoom buttons placement, easy to get in finger in front of lens, slow autofocus, lack of user-defined controls (AF point placement, manual shooting), so-so image quality

There’s a lot of choice out there when it comes to tough and waterproof compact cameras. The Canon PowerShot D20 certainly ticks the boxes when it comes to underwater use, but it’s the awkward design and the lack of the core image quality elements that...

A rugged waterproof camera with dependable image and video quality

Canon PowerShot D20

 

Slightly different to most Power Shot offerings as this is waterproof, it still however has all the normal facilities and enhancements of a standard digital camera but in this case getting it wet will not be a disaster at least in the short term.

The Canon PowerShot D20 measures 9.5x6.5x2cm and weights 228grams. Normally I am a fan of sober colours and the predominate black of this unit pleases my sober personality. However as this may be lost under water the bright yellow buttons and...

The Canon Powershot D20 is a rugged camera with a 12.1 megapixels sensor. Canon claims that it is water, shock, freeze and dust proof. It has a 28mm lens with a 5x optical zoom and Canon's Intelligent IS technology to cope with outdoor use and...

If you need a camera that is tough enough to withstand the odd knock, and can do a job underwater the Powershot D20 does a fantastic job for the price, otherwise you’re better off looking elsewhere. Canon Powershot D20 is tagged with Canon, Powershot...

Canon PowerShot D20

 

While other camera manufacturers have been making rugged cameras for many years, Canon didn't enter the market until early 2009 (preferring to create optional waterproof housings for many of its 'regular' compacts instead). Canon's first truly...

The Canon PowerShot D20 is a capable compact camera that offers good photo quality (for its target audience), plenty of fun features and, of course, the ability to handle water, dust, cold, and the occasional impact. The fish-shaped body is made of a...

Canon PowerShot D20

 

The GPS-equipped Canon PowerShot D20 is a well-built but large rugged camera with a sharp lens. It produces good-looking images at every supported ISO, but isn't the fastest tough camera that we've tested.

Sharp lens. Good high ISO performance. Integrated GPS.

Large, even for a rugged camera. So-so speeds. 1080p video limited to 24fps.

Performance and Conclusions The D20 is no slouch when it comes to performance, but it isn't the fastest tough camera we've tested. It starts and shoots in 1.4 seconds, can fire off a photo every half second, and records a 0.2-second shutter lag. The...
