Product Description

The PowerShot SX20 IS combats blur with Motion Detection Technology. Several advanced methods determine camera and subject movement, ISO settings are then adjusted for optimum results. Blur is also combated by Servo AF/AE, which retains focus on moving subjects while continuously adjusting exposure.  For perfect portraits, the PowerShot SX20 IS features Canon Face Detection Technology. Face Select & Track lets you select a particular face as the main subject, while FaceSelf-Timer makes group photos easy – taking a shot after an extra face enters the frame.  In shooting or playback, enhanced i-Contrast optimises dynamic range according to the scene- retaining detail in shadows and preventing overexposure of highlights. The result is natural images with the best possible contrast.  Shoot HD movies (720p, 30fps) with CD quality stereo sound – ready for sharing on any HDTV via an HDMI connection.
