Better than expected

  • Excerpt: It takes great pictures. Don't let the 12.1 megapixel sway you. The quality is good, in or out of the water.<br /><br />The not so good.....I've had no issues with it, but it doesn't feel as durable as the Olympus. <br /><br />Hard to beat its price point in the waterproof capabilities category.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

Great for Vacation!

  • Excerpt: I purchased this a week before I went on vacation to Disney World as I wanted a point and shoot specifically for vacation that was waterproof. We have two iPhones but I didn't want to rely on those during the rainy season in Florida and we wanted to take them to the water parks.<br /><br />For the waterproof park it worked great! Took it into all the pools and water parks and had no issues.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Poor Button Placement

  • Conclusion: I was worried about this product when I read a bad review on it but I've had it for a while and it hasn't disappointed. The only things that I didn't like about this camera is there is no panorama button and the zoom isn't very good. I just got the standard camera without any additional zoom but I found when I was taking pictures of birds that were kind of far away that the zoom didn't cut it.
  • Pros: doesn't leak under water
  • Cons: zoom isn't great

Great, but no lens cover

  • Conclusion: I'm buying another D20, after superb performance for two years. My bad-- I caused a leak in salt water.Two complaints, one serious: 1) slow to shoot, but aren't they all, and 2) NO LENS COVER! Hand it to a friend for a shot, or forget, and you've got a lens smudge.But, the camera goes anywhere I can, takes professional quality images for magazine use, does excellent video. Since they seem to be hard to get, I wonder if Canon is revamping.
  • Pros: tough high qiuality
  • Cons: no lens cover!, slow to shoot

Nice Cross of Camera and CamCorder

  • Excerpt: I bought this camera for beach/boating use. This camera offers a great trade-off between camera and camcorder. Pictures are a little on the saturated side, but as good as you can expect from a point and shoot. The ability to zoom during videos was an important decision factor for me. I have used this several times in the Atlantic ocean (no diving) without leakage. A little less detail than my Canon S90 on a side by side comparison of the same subject.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Battery Life, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact

User Review

  • Conclusion: I had the d10 camera and was looking for a smaller version of the same camera. when I first looked at the d20 , I thought the specs said it would have a time exposure setting of up to 15 seconds. That was the one feature of my d10 that I used to capture auroras in AK. When I got the camera home I couldn't find the setting for long exposures. I called Canon's helpline and was told that the new models are not able to do time exposures.
