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.
Summary: I bought this camera for a Great White Shark diving trip and I was SO DISAPPOINTED because it worked for about 30 minutes. I did not see evidence of moisture inside until the display seemed to have some condensation after a couple of days after sitting, unused.
Summary: Ordered this camera for cruise trip so that kids can have fun. It works fine underwater, however the quality is bad. Use for one trip only at first 3 month, the camera stopped working and got lens error messenger. Sent back for warranty repair at my own costs and received "repaired" item back.
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 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.
Summary: At first I was very excited when I received mine in the mail, bought all the accesories, etc. Only used it once or twice before my trip to Jamaica for my wedding. Upon arrival everything seemed to work great, pictures not as good as my other canon, but not bad.
Summary: The camera leaked the fourth time I took it in the water. I brought it back to the store as it was only a few month old. Canon refused to replace the camera saying the battery compartment must have been open or I must have taken it beyond 10m water depth.
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: My husband and I purchased this camera in December 2009. We are active kayakers, hikers and adventurers, so we wanted a camera that could handle a variety of conditions in and out of the water. We were very pleased with the camera, initially.
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.
