Summary: There is nothing special about this camera, it is basic point and shot with all the related problems everybody knows, such as slow and unreliable focus, noise in low light, etc. The only reason to consider this camera is because it is sealed, you can take it with you to pool, underwater, etc. Now, you may seen this in other reviews, camera is made entirely of hard plastic. By looking on pictures I thought it is rubber and metal, but this is not true.
Conclusion: I've had this camera for a little over a year. It was fun while it lasted. The camera may not seal correctly thus causing the unit to be flooded with water. So much for the underwater capability. All of my cameras are Canons but I would think twice about purchasing this unit.
Summary: After using this camera I personally like the old model better. Picture quality is okay, but not as good as last one. I also don't like where some of the buttons are located. Ie. The playback button and the on/off button are on top so I am constantly turning off the camera instead of taking a picture.
Summary: Having owned, and heavily used, two previous Canon PowerShot D10 cameras, we were disappointed by changes in the feature set of the updated PowerShot D20. Improvements: 1. Larger LCD view screen 2. Underwater macro mode 3. Dedicated video recording button Disappointments: 1. No "sunset" mode 2. No "children and pets" mode 3. No "flowers & foliage" mode 4. Only one carrying strap placement option (compared to 4 on the previous model) 5.
Summary: Pretty good camera it does what it says it will do but I returned it only because I found a better deal at my local walmart for around the same price, the new fujifilm that can go up to 50 feet under water, but if I hadn't found this camera I would have kept the cannon, good camera over all.
Summary: Pros --------- 1. Great water protection. Used it for reef pictures and videos around 2-3 meters deep and the seal stayed perfect. Cons --------- 1. Flash is super slow to recharge. If you bought this camera, you will be using this on a beach or a sunny area for sure. In bright light situations such as beaches, you must turn on the flash for most photos or else you will get overexposed shots due to sunlight.
Summary: I purchased this camera for a Caribbean vacation. The waterproof feature and underwater videos are fantastic. The camera is attractive, compact and has a solid built. However, there were a number of things I wasn't too satisfied with.....see the list below. The lens would quickly fog from underwater to above water. Outdoor pictures would appear with a reddish hue if camera is set at underwater mode. Upon surfacing from underwater a water drop would form on the lens.
Summary: Canon D20 good features: rugged waterproof good quality stills good quality video OK zoom range with no lens pop-out Bad features: slow at multiple shots slow focus bulky (I understand must be to be rugged & waterproof)
