High Resolution Imaging

By combining a new 12.1 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 3200 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 SX20 IS takes you where the action is. From landscapes to telephoto sports and nature shooting, you'll never have to compromise on your vision.

HD Video Recording

Record family events or unlock your inner filmmaker with smooth 30 frames per second HD video. The SX20 IS captures broadcast quality 1280 x 720 video with life-like stereo sound. The camera even provides use of the optical zoom while recording. Easily share your memories on a big screen HDTV by connecting the camera with an optional HDMI cable.

2.5" Vari-Angle LCD

Easy to view at any angle, the razor-sharp 2.5" LCD of the SX20 IS 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.

Smart Auto Technology

Concentrate on your subjects and let the camera handle the technical details with Canon's Smart Auto Technology. The SX20 IS analyzes your situation and shooting conditions with 22 scene settings. Whether you're photographing flowers, a sporting event, or a night out with friends, the camera maximizes image quality while minimizing effort.

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.

AA-size Battery Convenience

This AA battery powered camera enables you to easily power up. Since AA-size batteries can be purchased at virtually any store, simply get replacements wherever you go - no special power adapters or chargers are needed.
