What People Are Saying:
Critics say the Canon PowerShot D20 is definitely rugged, but somewhat slow compared to rivals, and a bit bulky with somewhat awkward button placement. Consumer Reports recommends it, saying the manual focus makes it more versatile than most rugged point-and-shoots. User reviews are primarily positive, with most saying the D20 is easy to use and takes good underwater pictures without leaking, although several note that it's a little slow. Complaints center on problems with leaking and dissatisfaction with indoor images.
- PCMag.com: " The GPS-equipped Canon PowerShot D20 is a well-built but large rugged camera with a sharp lens. It produces good-looking images at every supported ISO, but isn't the fastest tough camera that we've tested."
- US.Gizmodo.com: "[The Canon D20 is] a decent camera, but the Panasonic TS4 and the Olympus Toughcam TG-1 both out-perform it in image quality and ease of use."
- DigitalTrends.com: "The Canon D20 is a better-than-average looking tough cam that sports a surprising sharp lens and impressive underwater stills capability. But get ready to sacrifice action shots, because a speed demon this is not."
