Powershot D20 replacement / update?
« on: October 07, 2013, 06:13:55 AM »
Just wondering if anyone as heard anything regarding a update for the Powershot D20?  I appreciate that it's a bit specialist, but I'm interested to find out if anyone truly believes that Canon wil be releasing an update to this underwater camera next year, as I have a bit of a diving holiday planned for mid next year and don't really want to fork out the >£1K for a DSLR case or risk my 7D getting ful of fish.  At the moment, it seems that the Panasonic FT5 and Olympus TG-2 are surging ahead in terms of underwater colour rendering and (Panasonic) in MP and scoring well in reviews, but I would rather keep with Canon.

cheers,

Grant :-)

The D20 is a quick shooter, but it's hard to make adjustments while using it one-handed. You can leave it in auto mode, or dive into the menus to tweak controls, but it would be better to have a happy medium.

I got a review as well for it but lets c i dont go dare devil though

I looked at one of these, but in the end I didn't bother as it doesn't shoot raw. Add that feature and I'm definitely in.
Some cameras… With Canon written on them. Oh, and some lenses… Also with Canon written on them. Oh, and a shiny camera with Fuji written on it too...

Feel free to have a wander round my flickr

I've also been looking for a serious all weather/waterproof camera for kayaking/fishing/....  Yes I know I can get a housing, but its not quite the same.  The Nikon 1 AW1 (http://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/acil/bodies/aw1/) seems to be the most serious contender so far.  Think I'll wait a while longer and see how it holds up before pulling that trigger.  An EOS M AW would be interesting, but I won't hold my breath ;-)

Hi guys,
thanks for your responses.  I've got a bit of time to go, so I'll wait until closer to the date before purchasing.  Interesting abot the Nikon - I'll keep an eye out.

thanks,
