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.
The Canon PowerShot D10 Digital Camera is one with style.

Excerpt: The Canon Powershot D10 is the perfect camera for underwater use. It's very protective and won't be damaged. But unfortunately you can't take off the protective covering and is quite a poor design for an everyday use camera. It's also slightly expensive and to some may seem unattractive. But that extra layer that it has keeps is safe from the cold up to as low as 14 degrees Fahrenheit, from drops of up to four feet high, and in the water at depths up to 33 feet.
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: I purchased this camera for my wife. I own many Canon camera's ranging from a DSLR to my newest SD780 IS. PROS: Camera is extremely durable Customizable strap location CONS: Lag in shutter time.
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.
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.
