Part of being digital is about communication. Specifically, it's about the ability of your PowerShot camera to communicate with your computer. The PowerShot S20 brings your communications into the digital universe with its cross-platform USB connection. By connecting your S20 to your computer (PC or Macintosh) via the included USB cable you can download your photographs at 20 times the rate of the older serial connections. With today's high-capacity storage devices, a quicker download is essential, and with the USB connection, you can now communicate at digital speed.
