Great for underwater- not for video

CO_dogs, Canon
4 December 2014
  • Conclusion: I purchased this camera for a special trip to use for snorkeling. It performed wonderfully under water and fish photos turned out great. It takes good pictures for day to day things, but the 5x zoom is not enough for many situations.

Not-so-waterproof

Sorrento, Canon
13 November 2014
  • Conclusion: I owned my D20 since 2011 and I have been very happy with it. It produces very good quality photos, very easy to use and a lot better than than other water-proof in size and looks. I have always been a fan of Canon, so I chose this for my weatherproof camera as well.

Not happy with image quality

Art Chik, Amazon
15 August 2014
  • Summary: I needed a water resistant camera for use on a kayak. Did not really need anything totally waterproof, just resistant in case I was splashed or took a spill. Sadly, such a camera does not exist so I looked at waterproof cameras.

Ok camera for its purpose

DynaBoss "DynaBoss", Amazon

  • 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.

User Review

Rich, Canon
24 July 2013
  • 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.
  • Pros: great pic quality
  • Cons: camera may not seal right

new vs old

  • 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.

  • Pros: worked well
  • Cons: stopped working at 2 years

Canon's mediocre upgrade

B. Menke, Amazon
22 June 2012
  • Summary: I bought the Canon D10 when it first came out and have enjoyed the camera very much. I had two issues with it though, the body was too fat and the video was only 640 x 480. When the new Canon D20 came out it looked like just what I was looking for, slim design and HD video.

Be Sure To Understand The Trade-Offs

Thomas Regner, Amazon
3 June 2012
  • Summary: It's easy to be mislead by the marketing hype and glowing reviews, as I was, that this is a high-end general purpose pocket-sized 12 megapixel camera that takes stunning photographs and just happens to also be waterproof.
