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. I removed the card and battery. I then rinsed the camera with fresh tap water.
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. I have been to canon, written emails to customer care, canon SA and canon America. The response is pathetic as not to be expected from a 'professional global company.
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. I just find it really absurd to have a waterproof, shatterproof, freezeproof camera (up to a certain feet), and not have a warranty for it.
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.
