The Canon Powershot D20 is a tough, robust digital camera. It can be used in almost all weathers and challenging conditions. The Powershot D20 is waterproof to depths of 10m, shockproof to drops of 1.5m, freezeproof to temperatures as low as – 10 degrees centigrade and dustproof.
More standard features include 12 megapixels and a 5x wide angle lens. Owing to the fact it can cope with the odd bump and bruise and its ability to cope with unexpected conditions the Powershot D20 is popular with people taking a holiday. With this in mind Canon have equipped the camera with GPS tracking so that you can record where you were in the world when a picture was taken.
For close up shots the Powershot D20 is able to focus from 1cm away from your subject.
It can also fill in for your camcorder from time to time. It is able to record Full 1080p High Definition movies. Image stabilisation works for movies as well as still photos. This helps to minimise any video shake. You also have the option to record slow motion movie clips.
If you would like to use the camera at greater depths there is a case available to buy that is waterproof to depths of 40m.
