Canon PowerShot SD20


Canon PowerShot SD20 Digital ELPH

Category: Point-and-Shoot

The Canon PowerShot SD20 Digital ELPH (aka Digital IXUS i5 in the UK) is an ultracompact JeansPocket™ Certified digital camera for the fashion conscious photographer. It comes in four colours: Garnet, Midnight Blue, Zen Gray, and Silver.

The Canon SD20 has 5.0 megapixels resolution (1 MP more than the SD10 it replaces), a F2.8 maximum aperture and a shutter speed range of 15-1/1,500 sec. There is no optical zoom, but a 6.5x digital zoom.

You can shoot 30 secs clips of 640x480 movie at 10fps, take night pictures with a long shutter speed of 15 sec., and new Scene Modes automate exposure settings for 5 different shooting situations.

Small enough to fit into a fashion purse or trousers pocket, the elegant Canon PowerShot SD20 Digital ELPH makes a fashion statement in any circle. Plus, you have the added confidence of a Canon lens and DiG!C Image Processor for high resolution pictures.
