This is the PowerShot A20 and PowerShot A10, the
digital cameras for those of us who would rather learn
to surf or mountain bike or scuba dive than to master
the intricacies of digital technology.
Get Digital With It:
The Fun-loving
PowerShot A20 & A10
3x Optical Zoom
Either camera fits right into your lifestyle, and
right into your pocket. They’re compact, lightweight and rugged for go-anywhere fun. Their
simple, easy-to-understand controls help you
get the best shot under every set of conditions,
but they’ll never get in your way or confuse you.
Brilliant images, rich with color and detail, reward
both the beginner’s eye and the more advanced
photographer’s demands, thanks to the A20’s 2.1
megapixel CCD and the A10’s 1.3 megapixel CCD.
Canon’s world-renowned optics are represented in the
sharpness and clarity of the 3x optical zoom lens (the
A20’s 2.5x digital zoom and the A10’s 2x digital zoom
let you move in even closer). And from focus to flash,
the A20’s and A10’s operations are automatic, so you
can concentrate on capturing the moment.

*Approximately equivalent in
the traditional 35mm film format.
By attaching it to the A20 or
the A10, the WC-DC52 wide
conversion lens lets you take
shots as wide as 24.5mm*.

With the A20 and A10’s Direct Print Mode, skip your
computer altogether and use the Card Photo Printer
CP-10 . You’ll have a print to show to your friends in
under a minute. Just plug the camera and the printer
together with the direct printer cable, follow the
instructions on the camera’s LCD monitor, and in less
than 60 seconds you will have a credit card-size print
or 8 mini-labels of your image.
Shoot and Show:
Printing Was
Never Easier
Designed specifically to complement the A20 or A10,
the CP-10 is as easily portable, and as simple to use
as the camera itself. It delivers high-resolution – 300
x 300dpi – borderless credit card-sized prints, using
the dye-sublimation printing method for superior color
gradation and neutral tints. A protective overcoating
keeps your prints from fading due to handling or
exposure to sunlight.
The CD-300 is another way to get great prints
of your digital images. Don’t bother with
complicated connections – just pop the A20’s
or A10’s CompactFlash™ card right in the
printer and choose between 4” x 6”, 4” x 10”
or multi-image print sizes. Dye-sublimation
technology ensures vibrant, high-quality prints
and protective overcoating means they’ll
stay that way.

Speed and versatility are what digital photography is
really all about. Forget waiting until a roll of film is
finished. Forget waiting for the lab to develop film and
send it back to you.
Instead of all that waiting, the A20 or A10 lets you
share your images as soon as you’ve captured them.
Take a picture of your child or your dog or a lovely
vacation spot with it. As soon as you’ve taken the
picture, you can share it with family and friends.
The Digital Difference:
Share Your Images
Use your Macintosh or PC computer to display your images
on screen, print them on paper, or e-mail them to your
friends and family. All of the software to do that is
bundled with your A20 or A10, including
ZoomBrowser EX 2.6 (ImageBrowser
1.6 for Macintosh users) and
PhotoStitch 3.1.
PhotoStitch can assemble dramatic panoramic images
from pictures taken with the Canon’s exclusive Stitch
Assist Mode.
ZoomBrowser (or ImageBrowser) gives you the ability
to display, download and save images. It also lets you
perform simple cropping and color adjustments and
arrange an onscreen slide show. Want to send images via
e-mail? ZoomBrowser automatically resizes and compresses
the images, and starts your e-mail application.

Hike with it. Mountain bike with it. Lie on a beach with
it. Going kayaking? There’s a waterproof case for it that
will let you take it along on water sports adventures,
too. The case is so protective, in fact,
that it will enable you to take your
A20 or A10 scuba diving with you
to depths of 100 feet (30 meters).
Wherever you go, you won’t run out of power, because
the A20 and A10 run on AA batteries that you can find
anywhere in the world. The CompactFlash™ card provides
removable digital storage for your pictures.

And All Reasons
For greater photographic variety, both the A20 and A10
will accept the WC-DC52 wide conversion lens which
reduces the camera’s focal length to 24.5mm for a wideangle effect. For extreme macro work, the Close-up Lens
250D 52mm can be used. Both lenses require the use
of a lens adapter, which will also accommodate 52mm
filters for a range of visual effects.
