Canon PowerShot D20 Digital Camera Review$349.99
Auto and Program modes are available. Scene modes include Underwater, Underwater Macro, Snow, Portrait, Handheld NightScene, Low Light, Fireworks, Long Shutter, and two Stitch Assist settings for shooting panoramas
The closest that the D20 comes to manual control is a manual focus mode. Since the LCD is relatively low-res, and there's no dial with which to control the focus, the utility is limited.
Focus is quick and accurate in good lighting, and reasonably quick and accurate in dimmer lighting. The only notable issue is the action on the stiff shutter—half-pressing the button requires some finesse.
Maximum resolution is 12 megapixels in a 4:3 aspect ratio. It's JPEG-only (no RAW) and there's just one quality level (we're assuming that it's the best they can muster). Other aspect ratios include the standard 3:2, 16:9, and 1:1. Four sizes are available in each aspect ratio, for a total of 16 shooting resolutions.
