Excerpt: This has been a great little knock about camera that I use for work. I climb towers for a living and it has been bouncing around in my shoulder bag to take technical shots with during repairs with no protection and it hasnt missed a beat. Within the limitations of this style of camera I have no hesitation in recommending it. Small negative is I would have preferred a wider angle lens than 35mm but I have still got plenty of good photos from it.
Review for canyoneers - specifically in/out of water situations

Summary: My husband and I bought this camera just before a recent canyoneering trip to Monterrey, Mexico. Our Olympus failed on the last trip (to be fair - it took quite a beating), so we thought we would get something with better photo/video quality that could still handle the harsh environment.
Summary: Have owned for 3 months. Solid Canon with usual benefits - easy to use,fast and 'smart' - facial recognition and auto scene selection really do work. 12 M chip allows for lots of digital zooming but often is soft at max - likely due to limits of lens in compact camera and aperature speed of shot. Not a problem however if you stay (as you should) within optical zoom range.
Conclusion: Unfortunately my experience with this camera is ended too prematurely for a construction defect and so I can't say nothing good of it.
Pros: Unfortunately my experience with this camera is ended too prematurely for a construction defect and so I can't say nothing good of it.
Cons: The camera had "drink" ocean water the first time that I put it in a 0.5m white sand lagoon. Only the "display last picture" button was working for a minute or so and then a blank monitor had ruined my holiday.
Excerpt: I have a DSLR but I always like to have a point and shoot camera to serve both as a back up but also as alternative for situations where its more convenient to have a small camera. The Canon D10 serves as my second camera and I've had ample opportunities now to use this camera and so feel confident to review it accurately.
Excerpt: This is a really good underwater camera, it has many plus points but does have a few negative as with every product. The camera itself is very sturdy, feels like it is pretty much indestructible. The D10 is a odd shaped camera but is very comfortable to hold. You can hold the camera in one so it is not excessively big. I bought this camera from online so was not exactly sure on how big it was. It was smaller than I thought which was good as I do not like large cameras.
Pros: Good underwater pictures and video, Size, Ease of Use
Cons: Screen sometimes hard to see, Seals around battery compartment do not seem up to job
Summary: It is claimed to be waterproof up to 10 meters, freeze proof up to -10 degrees, shockproof when dropped from a height of 1.22 meters and dust proof. But be very careful of the warranty on this product. I contacted Canon support and after being transferred to a supervisor I was told the warranty does not cover water damage, sand/corrosion damage, dropping the camera.
Summary: It is claimed to be waterproof up to 10 meters, freeze proof up to -10 degrees, shockproof when dropped from a height of 1.22 meters and dust proof. The camera has a 12.1MP sensor, 3x optical zoom and a 2.5" LCD, and includes Smart Auto Mode, Face Select & Track, Blink Detection and Face Self-timer. May be no better than a cheap disposable camera, but you aren't paying for development and you get immediate confirmation of your picture quality.

PowerShot D10 in the water, cold and vibration performance, all have outstanding performance, it has a water capacity of 10 meters and can withstand the cold of minus 10 degrees and 1.2 meters of free fall drop.
