    Wide-angle superzoom
    A 20x wide-angle (28mm) optical zoom provides outstanding telephoto reach for stills and movies alike; plus, with Ultrasonic Motor (USM) and Voice Coil Motor (VCM), zooming and focus are fast, accurate and near-silent. Canon’s optical IS technology works across the zoom range, to counteract the blur caused by camera shake.

    12.1 Megapixels
    A 12.1 Megapixel sensor captures the detail you need to make stunning, large-scale prints, or creatively crop images to perfection.

    2.5" vari-angle LCD
    A 2.5" vari-angle PureColor VA provides a comfortable way to shoot from almost any position. Quick-Bright and Night Display functions enhance screen visibility in bright or low light.

    Smart Auto and Shooting Modes
    Smart Auto mode analyses subject brightness, contrast, distance, hue and movement. Intelligent Scene Detection Technology then selects the scene type from 22 variables, applying the best settings for optimum output. 24 dedicated shooting modes include full Manual for complete control.

    DIGIC 4 processing
    Canon’s DIGIC 4 processor drives exceptional processing speeds, responsive operation, superb image quality and colour reproduction. Advanced Noise Reduction ensures richly detailed, clean images, even at high ISO speeds.

    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.

    Face Detection Technology
    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.

    HD movies and HDMI output
    Shoot HD movies (720p, 30fps) with CD quality stereo sound ready for sharing on any HDTV via an HDMI connection.

    Speedlite compatible
    For extended shooting options and creative lighting, the PowerShot SX20 IS is compatible with many models in Canon’s EX Speedlite flash range.
