Powerful Imaging Performance
By combining a 10.0 megapixel CCD sensor and Canon's advanced DIGIC 4 Image Processor, the PowerShot SX20 IS offers amazing image quality with dramatic low light sensitivity. Impressive ISO 1600 capability reduces blur and subject movement for crisp photos with spectacular sharpness and clarity.
20x Optical Zoom Lens
Built to the highest standards, Canon optics bring rich color and uncompromising quality to every subject. The 20x optical zoom range (28-560mm 35mm film equivalent) of the SX10 takes you where the action is. From landscapes to telephoto sports and nature shooting, you'll never have to compromise on your vision.
2.5" Vari-Angle LCD
Easy to view at any angle, the razor-sharp 2.5" LCD of the SX10 makes composition a snap. The screen offers 270 degree tilt and 180 degree flip for easy shooting at any angle. Framing and reviewing your photos is a pleasure, even under the brightest sunlight.
Multiple Shooting Modes
With 24 Shooting Modes including 11 Special Scene Modes, you're ready for whatever shot comes your way. When you're taking pictures, the only thing you want to think about is your subject. With the PowerShot SX10 IS, you can count on exact focus no matter where your subject is in the frame. You've got Shooting Modes including Special Scene Modes that give you breathtaking, exhilarating pictures even when shooting conditions are tough.
Optical Image Stabilization
Canon's optical image stabilizer counteracts camera shake caused by unwanted movement. Vibration sensors detect the angle and speed of hand movement and send this information to the processor, allowing the camera to compensate. This adds stability to hand-held, telephoto and moving shots and enables shooting at shutter speeds of up to three stops without the use of a tripod.
Advanced Face Detection Technology
Canon's Advanced Face Detection Technology keeps every face in focus. The latest in focus-tracking technology coupled with Intelligent Contrast Correction, and Red-eye Correction deliver consistent sharpness and natural, life-like skin tones.
Intuitive Manual Controls

From Aperture and Shutter Priority to full-on Manual control, the SX10 is the perfect camera to help you capture your creative vision.

The Print/Share button makes direct printing easier than ever.
