Canon PowerShot D20 Digital Camera Review$349.99
Speed and Timing
The D20 is responsive, though not particularly fast compared to some of its peers.
Aside from single-shot mode, just one drive mode setting is available. It shoots at full resolution. While capture slows down after about 7 or 8 frames, there doesn't appear to be a cap on the number of shots captured per burst.
We clocked the D20 at a shade under 2 frames per second. That's not bad for a point-and-shoot, but with plenty of cameras hitting 10fps, it feels slow.
The usual 2-second and 10-second options are available, as well as a custom timer with interval shooting.
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.
