Canon PowerShot A20 Review
Optional Lens thread adapter / Wide angle lens
Surrounding the lens is a plastic bezel which unscrews to enable the (optional) LA-DC52 lens adapter to be fitted, this provides a 52 mm thread just clearing the furthest extent of the extended lens. Add to this the (optional) WC-DC52 (x0.7) and you now have an equivalent focal length range of 24.5 - 73.5 mm, a very useful wide angle.

Optional CBK-100 Battery Kit / Charger
The CBK-100 Battery Kit and Charger consists of four NiMH AA 1600 mAh batteries (NB-1AH) and a charger (CB-3AH). A full charge takes around 220 minutes (3.5 hours) and the powerful batteries should provide several hours of life in the A20.
Optional ACK-600 AC Adapter
The ACK-600 AC Adapter is rated with an output of 4.3 V @ 1.5 A, input of 100-240V AC (50/60Hz). It will provide the A20 with DC power without batteries.
Optional SC-PS600 Soft Case
The SC-PS600 soft case is made from a black suede-like material, has a small pocket on the inside to hold a spare Compact Flash card and a belt loop on the back.
Optional WP-DC200 Waterproof Case
The optional WP-DC200 waterproof case is compatible with either the PowerShot A10 or A20, it converts them into fully waterproof, fully operational digital cameras that can be used at depths of up to 30 m (100 ft). The case is (of course) fully air-tight and held closed with a tight, catch locked, claspe mechanism. Useful for diving, in the rain or for days at the beach! All buttons are repeated on the outside of the case and the lens window is made of coated glass. The case with the A20 weigh a total of 705 g (1.55 lb). (Note: case is supplied with a strap)
Kudos must go to Canon for this excellent case, it seems to work very well (though I've not been diving recently ;) is very well built and doesn't inhibit the cameras ability to take great shots.
