Summary: I recommend spending your money on a different brand’s waterproof camera.
Pros: Water-proof Typical photo quality Typical camera size
Cons: I have had many issues with this product. The camera was typical of an underwater camera, but the issues and service were not. A year after getting the camera there was an error with a sensor that required service. Canon an outrageous price for service, regardless of how simple the issue is to so...
Excerpt: The picture quality is quite good and I was happy with this camera until I used it for the first time under water. I only managed to take four pictures on a snorkel trip to Maui, nothing more than two feet deep. The screen turned dark and upon inspection I found the camera full of sea water.
Cons: Failed on the second day. Literally worked fine on day 1 and then day 2 water entered from either the batter door or the A/V out door. I was pretty careful to make sure that we did not accidentally knock those open in the water. Its just a lousy design. Be aware and look elsewhere. Im a long time...
Summary: Again, reiterating the above, but I strongly recommend you look elsewhere for a waterproof camera. I have returned this to Newegg once, and the problem exists in both the first unit received, as well as the second. I'm returning it to Newegg. Buyer beware!
Pros: The camera is of good quality, as normal for Canon. Under the right conditions, it takes great photos and video. It being waterproof was the reason I purchased it, since my mom's last camera met its demise in a cup of coffee.
Cons: Please read this fully. I strongly urge against purchasing this camera. The problem is a fatal flaw with the camera, also indirectly confirmed by Canon. They claim that the camera "doesn't understand" that level of brightness. Anytime you take photos or video, and the subject of either is brightl...
Summary: I am a huge Canon fan and have purchased many of their cameras in the past. I initially loved this camera. We were out on vacation when a huge thunderstorm came out of nowhere. No worries. The camera does take great pictures although it is a little bulky.
Summary: I purchased a Canon D10 on ebay from Hot Digital USA. This camera is rated to 10 meters underwater. It is endorsed by most diving organizations and diving magazines, internationally. I purchased this camera brand new and on first use it leaked in one meter of water.
Summary: I should have read the reviews before final ly deciding to purchase the product. This would have been a big help as these are firsthand experience from the users, rather than just relying on the product specifications/details and claims from the company.
Pros: It takes good shots and videos and sounds for video is clear, user friendly and a lot of great features/settings. Cool and unique shape (like a submarine) and color, big lcd screen for viewing.
Cons: Too bulky to carry around and disappointingly unwarranted waterproof feature.
Summary: My husband and I purchased this camera to take on vacation in Hawaii. We took about 3 pictures on the beach before going snorkeling and they looked fantastic. Unfortunately, the second we brought it in the ocean with us it filled with water and never turned on again.
Summary: I bought this camera before going to Hawaii and was going to snorkel with the sharks for the first time ever. The camera worked great until I had it no deeper than a foot below the surface for a few minutes to take underwater shots.
