Sis recently bought a Canon Powershot D20. She bought it just before we went to Estrellas de Mendoza for Ykaie’s advance birthday celebration.
The D20 offers a host of improvements over its predecessor, Powershot D10,that include the use of a CMOS sensor (which Canon touts as ‘high sensitivity’), plus a 5X zoom lens (versus 3X), larger/sharper LCD, built-in GPS, and 1080p video recording. While the D20 can be submerged as deep as its predecessor underwater (10 meters), it’s slightly more shock resistant and able to take a slightly higher drop than before (1.5 versus 1.2 meters).
- 12.1 effective megapixel BSI-CMOS sensor
- F3.9-F4.8, 28-140mm lens (5X)
- Optical image stabilization with ‘Intelligent IS’ feature
- 3.0 inch LCD with 461,000 dot resolution
- Built-in GPS with logging function
- Waterproof to 10m, shockproof from 1.5m, freezeproof to -10C
- 1080/24p movie mode
Sis practiced it’s waterproof ability by taking a lot of Ykaie’s photo underwater. All she needs now is an extra battery so she can still take photos even if her battery runs out. I recommend she buy a batteryheads.com digital camera battery.
Now, that camewa is all she wants to bring because it’s light and compact. The good thing about it is she lets me use her lenses.
