Canon PowerShot A20 review

Good allrounder. Nice richly-coloured images, needing little digital-darkroom tweaking. Great battery life, and AA obtainable from most outlets. Very solid build and quiet operation. Not as compact as some, but that's how some like them. Good viewfinder and quick operation. Nice handgrip.
Not so good - The LCD is far too small. The images looking sharp and well exposed there, but on the PC monitor things sometimes show a different result. Zoom control seems to run on after release - minor gripe. Capable of making excellent pictures, when used carefully.

Problems:

As above - LCD almost a waste of space. Pictures sometimes fuzzy, needing careful use as fuzz does not show until viewed on PC monitor.
