One camera. Endless adventures
Rugged and reliable the PowerShot D20 includes HS system and 5x optical zoom with Intelligent IS to bring high performance stills and movies to every outdoor adventure, plus GPS to track the thrills.
The PowerShot D20 is rugged enough for the most extreme outdoor activities, from snowboarding to snorkelling, while HS System ensures exceptional results whatever the adventure. Advanced DIGIC 4 processing and a high-sensitivity 12.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor let you capture the real atmosphere of the moment without flash or tripod even in low light.
Constructed for harsh conditions, the camera is waterproof down to 10m, shockproof to drops up to 1.5m, operates in temperatures as low as -10 °C and is fully protected from dust.
Fit more in the frame with 28mm wide-angle for panoramic landscapes and great group shots and use the 5x optical zoom to get closer to distant subjects. Intelligent IS keeps photos and videos sharp and detailed even on the move, at full zoom or in low light, automatically adjusting the optical Image Stabilizer to the scene from 7 modes.
GPS tags the location of your photos and videos while the Logger function can keep track of your journey. Use the supplied Map Utility software to pinpoint shooting locations and to share them with friends.
A large, high visibility 460k dot LCD screen with multiple coatings provides good visibility in all conditions from sunshine to underwater. Active display with Tap Control offers comfortable reviewing of images even when wearing gloves.
Use the movie button to instantly record Full HD (1080p) movies with optical zoom, while Intelligent IS keeps footage steady. An HDMI connection ensures high quality playback on an HDTV.
Effortlessly shoot great photos or movies with Smart Auto, which detects the scene and selects optimal settings from 32 variables (21 in movies).
Movie Digest and Super Slow Motion Movie add more ways to capture the action on your adventures.
Capture stunning shots underwater with functions like Underwater Macro for sharp close ups and Quick AF for fast automatic focusing. Custom and White Balance Compensation quickly adjust colours to different aquatic environments.
Get equipped for more adventures with an optional waterproof case (40m) or the Accessory Kit that includes Shoulder Strap, Carabiner Strap, Softcase, Silicon jacket and Float.
