Canon D20 underwater camera gets announced

The last time we saw something similar from Canon is with the PowerShot D10 many years ago. Today Canon announced the successor to that rugged line-up — the Canon PowerShot D20.

The previous Canon D10 was announced way back in 2009 so we’re a bit curious why it took this long for them to out a newer model.

Canon Powershot D20 specs:
12MP CMOS sensor
DIGIC 4 chip
28-140mm equivalent
5x optical zoom
1080p video
Image stabilization
built-in GPS
3-inch LCD

This rugged point-and-shoot camera got a complete redesign with a smaller and slimmer profile with an odd shape.

The Canon D20 is waterproof up to 33 feet, shockproof up to 5 feet, tolerant to temperatures between 14 to 104 degrees Fahrenheit.

Canon promises the Canon D20 will be available in May for about $350.

    I agree, it took them so long to come up with a new version. Actually wanted to get the D10 version but thinking that a new version will probably come out I waited for a while. Then finally, I decided to get a different brand. I had a friend who use the D10 for videos while swimming with the whale sharks in Donsol. The UW videos were so great that’s why I waited for the new version. Yuga, hope you could do a review on this product. Probably, do underwater test shots in Boracay.

    I hope this will be better than the D10. My friend had one but it kept on malfunctioning. A review would really be great and maybe a comparison with Lumix TS3 which is I think the best value waterproof camera in the market.
