Never miss a great memory because of some water. The DC-A20 is an attractive waterproof camera with a protective casing that takes great pictures, even up to 10 feet underwater. Add the built in 6x digital zoom and you will always be close to the action. The DC-A20 is not only very easy-to-use, but it's also sleek and powerful and a great value for a waterproof 9-megapixel camera. Less than one inch thick, it provides amateur photographers with a 6x digital zoom and a 2.5-inch LCD screen. All of these features provide just what you need to get that perfect shot, whether it's on dry land or underwater, up-close or a few feet away.
Also included are advanced features such as Smile Detection, Red Eye Reduction, Face Detection, Self Timer and More. Powered by two AAA batteries means you never run out of power - just pop in more batteries! You never run out of memory either as this unit is compatable with SD and SDHC memory cards up to 16gb.
A megapixel (one million pixels) is a unit of image-sensing capacity in a digital camera. A pixel - shorthand for "picture element" - is the basic unit of program- able color on a computer display or in a computer image. In general, the more megapixels in a camera, the better the resolution when making larger prints.
A waterproof camera is sealed against the elements allowing you to take pictures in the rain, on the beach, on the slopes and even up to 10 feet underwater without worrying that you will damage the unit.
Digital cameras use the LCD screen as a viewfinder by providing a live video feed of the scene to be captured. The LCDs normally measure between 1.5" and 2.5" diagonally (Haier LCDs measure 2.5 to 3 inches).
Electronic Image Stabilization
Image Stabilization automatically overcomes shaking or blurring caused by accidental hand movement, helping you take clearer, sharper pictures.
The camera's sensor detects when subjects are smiling and releases the shutter automatically when the smiles reach their peak. No more battling shutter lag times to get the perfect picture.
The camera detects faces in a scene and then automatically focuses and optimizes exposure for them. This technology helps when taking pictures of large groups, when a person is in the distance or when the subject moves into the frame.
ISO denotes how sensitive the image sensor is to the amount of light present. The higher the ISO, the more sensitive the image sensor, which means improved ability to take pictures in low-light situations. With a digital camera, you can change ISO speeds on the fly because you don't have to replace rolls of film rated for those speeds.
Red-eye removal provides users a tool to remove the appearance of red eyes in subjects, which sometimes occurs when pictures are taken using the flash.
If subjects blink as a photo is snapped, the camera alerts the user afterwards. This allows the photo to be immediately retaken.
