5 New Scene Modes and the Print/Share Button for greater ease of use

Tough shooting situation? No problem. The PowerShot SD20 Digital ELPH has 5 preset Scene Modes that let you handle just about anything - perfectly.


  • Portrait - The camera sets a big aperture, zooms the lens and creatively blurs the background - automatically.
  • Landscape - For front to back sharpness, the camera sets a small aperture.
  • Night Snapshot- Now it's easy to properly expose the night scene - at the touch of a button.
  • Indoor - Get natural-looking color and shake-free performance even under artificial light.
  • Underwater - Capture the underwater world in true-to-life color.

Print/Share Button

The SD20's Print/Share Button makes direct printing easier than ever. Simply connect the SD20 to a Canon Direct Photo Printer or PictBridge supported printer, press the Print/Share Button and print! Also use the Print/Share Button to transfer images directly to a computer (Windows).


Print your own ID photos in 28 different sizes or use the Movie Print function to output multiple stills from a recorded movie on a single sheet using any Canon Compact Photo Printer.


Razor sharp images that automatically display right side up - High-precision 9-point AiAF for sharp photos every time and Intelligent Orientation Sensor automatically rotates images for playback.


With its 9-point AiAF, the PowerShot SD20 Digital ELPH gives you super-accurate focus you can count on - even if your subject isn't at the center of the frame. Once you've shot your picture, the Intelligent Orientation Sensor automatically rotates images to their correct orientation during playback.


Garnet Color - The entire body is given a coat of original paint, embodying the "depth" that stands as the trademark of mellow red wine via this rich body hue. Yet another distinctive characteristic is the starry glitter portrayed on the surface, as if created of needle-like crystal formed from natural stone.
