Features

Waterproof, Shockproof and Freeze-resistant Design
Canon created the PowerShot D20 to be the tough, practical companion you'll want to bring on all your outdoor adventures, making it possible to capture truly impressive stills and video while doing what you love. Scuba dive, snorkel, paddle surf and more: the camera is waterproof all the way to 33 feet. Performance is fast and reliable in temperatures from 14° to 104°F, so it's safe for everything from winter sports to summer hiking. Shockproof up to 5.0 feet, the PowerShot D20 is also able to survive the accidental falls and bumps inherent to mountaineering, biking, and other outdoor activities.

Canon HS SYSTEM
The Canon HS SYSTEM lets you take bright, clear photos in an even wider range of shooting situations. Beautiful low-light shots are possible with minimal noise and maximum detail in highlight and shadow areas. The system is the result of two technologies brought together in PowerShot cameras: a high-sensitivity imaging sensor, which is able to capture more light; and the DIGIC Image Processor, which actively reduces noise with high-speed image processing.

Canon DIGIC 4 Image Processor
The DIGIC 4 Image Processor has ushered in a new level of picture quality and accelerated processing, making possible features such as high-speed continuous shooting, Full HD video and Face Detection Self-timer.

Canon Full HD Video Advantage
In addition to the Canon HS SYSTEM, the combination of the advanced CMOS sensor and DIGIC 4 Image Processor in the PowerShot D20 makes it possible to shoot crisp, clear high definition video. In addition to being able to shoot Full HD 1080p video at 24* frames per second, the PowerShot D20 can also shoot 720p HD video at 30† frames per second.

Dedicated Movie Button, Wind filter feature and Optical Zoom for easy video capture
The PowerShot D20 has a dedicated movie button that lets you start and stop recording instantly. The PowerShot D20 also incorporates an electronic wind filter, which suppresses wind noise that can muffle or distort the sound. The PowerShot D20 also lets you use the full range of optical zoom when you're shooting a video.

5x Optical Zoom with 28mm Wide-Angle Lens
The PowerShot D20's optical brilliance is a perfect match for the outdoor adventures the camera's tough design supports. The 5x Optical Zoom (operable during video recording, too) brings wildlife and other difficult-to-approach subjects close. The 28mm Wide-Angle Lens (35mm equivalent: 24-140mm) makes all your shots more dynamic, and allows you to capture landscapes with their magisterial breadth intact.

Optical Image Stabilizer
Handheld shooting can often lead to camera shake, making photos and videos blurry. Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer is a sophisticated system that uses lens-shift technology to correct for unwanted camera movement.

GPS Technology
The PowerShot D20 digital camera is equipped with Global Positioning System (GPS)‡ technology. Now you can travel the world and let the camera automatically record the locations§ and local times of your stills and videos.

Intelligent IS
The latest advance in Canon Optical Image Stabilization technology, Intelligent IS analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation.

Optional Accessories
A full range of optional accessories designed specifically for the PowerShot D20 take its fun and functionality to new heights. A Waterproof Case and Float are perfect for shooting in deeper waters down to 131 feet. A Carabiner Strap and Shoulder Strap keep the camera at hand during biking, climbing, hiking or any physical activity. A Silicone Jacket and Soft Case provide protection from the elements without adding extra weight.
