The PowerShot S20, equipped with a 1/1.8", 3.34 million-pixel CCD sensor. PowerShot S20 allows users to produce 8 x 10 prints boasting a level of image quality that rivals those from 35mm film. The high-performance 32-64mm (35mm format equivalent) 2x zoom lens incorporates three aspherical lens elements to correct for a variety of lens aberrations at all focal lengths and deliver sharp images with reduced distortion, even toward the outer perimeter of the image frame.
An Canon proprietary dedicated digital signal-processing integrated circuit maximizes the performance potential of the 3.3 megapixel CCD through high-speed high-precision image processing. The camera's built-in buffer memory realizes a shutter interval of about 2.2 seconds, facilitating stress-free operating ease.
The PowerShot S20 offers five picture-taking modes for a variety of shooting conditions and user preferences and includes such features as spot metering, AE lock and ISO equivalency settings.
