In the conclusion preview writes:

The Canon PowerShot D20 is a capable compact camera that offers good photo quality (for its target audience), plenty of fun features and, of course, the ability to handle water, dust, cold, and the occasional impact. The fish-shaped body is made of a mix of metal and composite materials and is as solid as you’d expect from a rugged camera. The D20 is waterproof to 10m/33ft, shockproof from 1.5m/5ft, and freezeproof to -10C/+14F. It has two sealed compartments (one for the battery and memory card, the other for I/O ports), and they’re locked so tightly that you’ll never open them accidentally. We took the D20 in swimming pools and the ocean, and had no problems with leaks.
