This Canon Powershot SD20 ( IXY Digital L2 ) is really nice camera I got .
The camera is most smallest and light weight from Canon , even now 2014 they are marked as record.
The fixed lens ( not Zoom Lens ) makes very nice pictures under SUN LIGHT .
However in dark condition, the recent models show better performance.
I have SD10, 20, 30 , 40 …
Most best one is this model… 20 …
The 30/40 are not good compares to SD10/20 for the image .
( however still smallest in Canon product list )
I put this camera in my business bag always and when I need to take pictures, I use it rather than iPhone camera. ( Much Better images than iPhone4s/5s )
( as remind me camera , this is the best camera I have )
Love the very small size. Takes great photos and decent videos. Has sound too. I've taken videos for over 2 mins. I don't know if there's a time limit for avi or if it just depends on the size of your sd card as to how long you can shoot a movie? I really don't see any negatives here. I would suggest to buying 2 lithium rechargeable batteries (1 ready in camera and 1 on charge). If you're just taking photos, battery seems to last a good while. I'd highly recommended this little guy for a step up camera or as a nice little spare. You'll truly love it! Fairly easy to learn how to use.
The battery life is terrible, had no memory card and I bought a USB cord and the camera still won't upload to the computer. Very disappointed.
