Canon PowerShot D10

Digital Photography Interface
23 September 2013
  • Conclusion: Take the SD1200 Digital ELPH, wrap a rugged/water-tight design around it as its body, throw in a bit of cuteness, a few new functions and a big leap in ergonomics and what does it become? The Canon PowerShot D10, of course! The PowerShot D10 is a waterproof, freezeproof, shockproof, very solid digital camera; and it’s Canon’s first attempt at the rugged camera market as well. My first and foremost praise is regarding the camera’s design.
  • Pros: Good image quality with good color accuracy and overall sharpness, Solid construction (sturdy, waterproof, shockproof, freezeproof); huge buttons for easy operation, Design is appealing to kids and anyone fond of ‘cute’ things; four on-board connectors for attachments, Good LCD visibility in variety of conditions, Fast in terms of performance (except continuous shooting), Decent point-and-shoot feature set with ample scene modes (two ‘manual controls below are a...
  • Cons: Noise reduction smudging from ISO 400 onwards; slight color fringing, Bulky size (compared to other rugged cameras); camera doesn’t fit in pockets, 3X lens doesn’t go very wide (starts at 35 mm); least zoom among rugged cameras, Sluggish continuous shooting frame rate, Camera doesn’t include any lens cap/cover, Lacks manual exposure controls and a live histogram

Canon PowerShot D10 Digital Camera Review

28 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Canon’s PowerShot D10 is certainly not the first waterproof, freezeproof and shockproof digital compact camera to land on the Buy-n-Shoot.com review desk (although it is a first in the extensive Canon line-up) but it is certainly one of the favourites so far. Its most immediately striking feature is simply that the D10 actually looks like a waterproof camera: its sturdy almost globular little body and fixed porthole inspired lens scream, ‘take me for a swim’ and there’ll...

Canon's first waterproof, freeze proof and shockproof digital camera is off to a good start

30 November 2011
  • Summary: The PowerShot D10 is Canon's first entry into the waterproof/rugged camera space where it joins offerings from the likes of Olympus, Pentax, Fuji, Panasonic and a number of specialty manufacturers. The somewhat playfully styled camera is is a bit on the bulky side, but is also well equipped to handle most of the abuse it may encounter outdoors.
  • Cons: 3X optical zoom starts at 35mm instead of wide, Only one underwater mode and one underwater white balance, Protruding dome makes camera feel bulky, Dome blocks flash in macro photography, No high-def video, Zoom in/out works backwards, Flimsy battery compartment latch that gums up

Canon PowerShot D10: Review

Electronics Made Easy
12 December 2010
  • Summary: Underwater amateur photography is not the big money making genre that other camera classes are, so it is pleasing to see Canon taking the effort to provide a worthwhile purchase for consumers. This unit is great for holiday or amateur use, but anything more than that will require a more heavy duty expense. Perfect for those underwater diving adventures or holidays to the snow.
  • Pros: 12.1 megapixel, Waterproof to 10m, 3x Optical Zoom, Optical Image Stabilization, PC & Mac Compatible
  • Cons: There are no cons for this product

PC Magazine
21 March 2010
  • Conclusion: The PowerShot D10 is waterproof, freeze-proof, and shock-proof, and it pumps out great-looking images, but if you're looking for a slim camera, this isn't it.
  • Pros: Fast performance. Top-notch image quality at most lens positions. LCD provides excellent contrast. Waterproof to 33 feet. Freeze-proof to 14 degrees Fahrenheit. Drop-proof up to 4 feet.
  • Cons: Twice as thick as most competing rugged cameras. Protective window shields lens from water and damage, but not fingerprints. No HD-video capture.

Canon Powershot D10

Camera Labs
1 October 2009
  • Summary: The Canon PowerShot D10 is a 12.1 megapixel compact with a 3x optical zoom and 2.5in LCD panel designed for use in and around water and other environments that would be considered hazardous for ordinary compacts. It's waterproof to a depth of 10 metres, and dustproof and shockproof to a height of 1.22m. The most distinctive thing about the D10 and one of it's strengths, is its design and apearance.
  • Pros: Great styling and survives depths of 10m., Good image quality., Fast and responsive., Bright LCD.
  • Cons: Limited zoom range., No HD video., Poor AF underwater., A tad bulky.

Expert Review

24 June 2009
  • Excerpt: The PowerShot D10 is Canon's first attempt at a waterproof compact, and straight away it looks different from the rest. With a chunky, bulbous design that certainly looks the part, but which may have been needed to accommodate a larger, more conventional lens.

Canon PowerShot D10 Review

Digital Camera Review
14 June 2009
  • Summary: There really isn't much to complain about with the D10. It's cheaper than the closest competitor from Olympus, it goes a little deeper than many of the other underwater cameras in its class, and it has the toughest wrist strap ever to grace a compact digital. I've been using Canons for more than 10 years and I've only been disappointed once.
  • Pros: Affordable, Waterproof, Shockproof, Dustproof
  • Cons: Battery life is below average, Images are soft in the corners

Canon PowerShot D10 review

12 June 2009
  • Summary: The design of the Canon PowerShot D10 is spot-on for a ruggedised camera. It feels good to use and, most importantly, it’s very easy to use. It takes clear photos but we’d have liked more contrast. Pick it up if you’re after a ruggedised camera for the outdoors.
