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...
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
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.

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 wish it rendered them with more contrast. Pick it up if you’re after a ruggedised camera for snorkelling, or just to use while you hang around the pool.
Pros: Waterproof to 10m, drop-proof to 1.2m, dust-proof, easy to use, well designed
Cons: Images lack contrast, sometimes overexposes shots in bright sunlight
Summary: This is quite a squat offering and it looks almost child like with large buttons and rather garish colouring, very unlike recent PowerShot offerings, there is however a rather good reason for the PowerShot D10 strange appearance.
