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.
Pros: 12.1 megapixel, Waterproof to 10m, 3x Optical Zoom, Optical Image Stabilization, PC & Mac Compatible
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.
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.
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: In a world where rock climbing, mountain biking and sea kayaking are all perfectly acceptable pastimes, the lifespan of a digital camera can be pretty short. Canon's latest PowerShot D10 is a rugged beast that can take a beating, dunking or freezing and still snap happily away.
Excerpt: Sleek, shiny and super slim are the buzz-words when it comes to digital compacts. We're asked to admire the wafer-thin dimensions of the latest model and reach for our wallets when we see how it slips into our jeans pocket without an unseemly bulge.

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.
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
Excerpt: 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 PowerShotD10 strange appearance.
