The Canon PowerShot D20 is an excellent waterproof digital camera with a 12.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor and a 5x Image Stabilized zoom lens and a 3 inch LCD.
The Canon D20 isn’t just an underwater camera, however. It performs very, very well in low light situations. In fact, the D20 seems to best the highly acclaimed Olympus TG-2 at ISO 1600 and above.
Here is a screen shot close-up of a section of the the D20’s ISO 1600 sample image (scroll down and use the magnifying glass feature to see such details):
Notice that while there is a fair amount of noise, the text on the coin is still readable, colors are fairly accurate, and the black lines are still distinguishable.
Studio Low Light Sample Images:
Our photography specialists took the Canon PowerShot SX280 to task in this low light image test. Notice how even at 800 ISO, there isn’t a great deal of noise considering the low lighting situation. Cameras that preform well in low light are especially good for parties, as good light is often hard to find in a restaurant, bar, club or hall.
Check out these low light image samples from the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS. Notice how sharp the images are with ISO 400! The ELPH series are a great companion to a Canon DSLR for more “everyday” shooting. Its compact and light weight design make it a breeze to always have the camera with you and never miss a moment.
