SOME cameras suit particular types of holidays and if your getaways usually involve water, this one fits the bill. The PowerShot D20 from Canon can be thrown in the deep end for underwater photography and full HD video, withstanding depths of 10m and temperatures of below 10C. Put through its paces in surf or snow, the attractive aqua and black, 12 megapixel PowerShot is superb in its simplicity, seamlessly focusing and refocusing as you zoom in and out and eliminating unsteadiness. It takes sharp images, even in dull lighting, and is shock-proof. Separate photo and recording buttons mean you won’t get your modes mixed up and a GPS automatically records location data.
