- Canon PowerShot D20
- Canon's latest tough-cam is a solid outdoor shooter, but doesn't offer enough to stand out.
Canon PowerShot D20 Digital Camera Review$349.99
Effects, Filters, and Scene modes
A helping of scene modes and picture effects are available. Notably, it's missing a sweep panorama mode.
Durability is the main attraction on the D20—that's why an otherwise average point-and-shoot costs $349. See our Durability section for more.
The D20 comes with a GPS antenna for geo-tagging photos. For some adventurous photographers, it’s a must-have feature. They can map out their photos and figure out exactly where they took their favorite shots—and share that info with friends and other outdoor enthusiasts.
GPS works best in wide-open areas, but we could get it to sync with the satellite even in relatively dense urban settings. The GPS can be disabled entirely; used only while the camera is turned on; or with the GPS Logger activated, it pings the satellite every few minutes to track its movements. This last setting really kills the battery life, especially if left on overnight.
If GPS is a critical feature for you, the D20 works well, but the best in-camera GPS system we’ve seen is in the Panasonic TS4.
