Canon EOS 20D DIWA Platinum Award : The eleven member websites within DIWA Awards continuously test and review digital imaging products for their readers. For digital cameras, more than 200 details must be checked, tested and evaluated. Then, each review is carefully monitored and compared by DIWA (Digital Imaging Websites Association) to ensure error-free, reliable and comprehensive test results. Top ranked products will receive DIWA Awards in the value of gold, silver or bronze, based on summarized average scores. At the end of each year, one of the gold winners from each of the three digital camera categories is selected by the members as the best of the best, honoured by a "DIWA Platinum Award". |

Sparked by an ultra-fast DIGIC II image processor, the EOS 20D overtakes many of its rivals in terms of shooting speed, processing speed, storing speed and camera response. Professionals and serious photo enthusiasts alike embrace the camera for its outstanding value for money.
DIWA Awards - Fast growing independent, authoritative, industry organization
The Digital Imaging Websites Association (DIWA) is a fast growing group of independent Web-based specialist publications dedicated to digital imaging. DIWA harnesses the collective talent and expertise of its members, resulting in industry awards that command unparalleled confidence and value, both for consumers and the industry, alike. DIWA awards come in the form of bronze, silver and gold medals.
DIWA Awards - Unique bullet-proof test scoring procedure
DIWA product test awards are exclusively decided through the analysis of multiple test scores from different DIWA testers, testing different samples of the same product. A very detailed and comprehensive standardized scoring procedure is employed, tailored carefully for each category of product. Multiple testing eliminates the chance of an isolated unrepresentative product sample or test error, or even hidden bias, from affecting the trustworthiness of the overall result.
DIWA Awards - Awards throughout the year
DIWA is also unique in its policy in issuing awards for deserving products throughout the year, culminating in annual best of the year Platinum medal awards.
