Canon PowerShot D20

Canon hasn’t been too active in releasing rugged cameras, with their first ever (and only) rugged digital camera being the PowerShot D10 released 3 years ago. But after being missing all these years, Canon is back in the market today with the arrival of their new PowerShot D20 rugged camera. If you read our review in the link above, you’ll see that the new 2012 PowerShot D20 has a completely reworked design: It looks more ‘conventional’ looking (opposed to the funky and bulky design of the original D10), more compact and looks to have a more rubbery finish (great news for ergonomics!)
