Summary: I am very happy with the picture quality, construction, and the portability of the Canon PowerShot D10. I have always wanted a camera to take pictures while in and around water. My only suggestion is to add a view finder. It is difficult to frame a picture in the LCD viewfinder.
Finally, a "full service" waterproof camera for all those fun-filled vacations, let the kids go crazy!
9 June 2010
Summary: So many of our family's vacations are at beaches, lakes, water-parks, or hikes and bringing along the sensitive digital camera has always been a problem. If I carried it then I could not get in water and I spent more time worrying whether the sand would damage it than taking pics of my family.
Excerpt: Excellent inexpensive camera. I initially purchased this camera for it's underwater feature only and figured I could use my other camera for everything else. After seeing how clear ALL of the pics turned out, I've used it as an everyday camera. The camera's video mode is quite nice too.
Summary: Purchased this camera to use snorkelling and have used it about six times so far without any problems. Having said that I did meet someone while on holiday who had experienced a leak with the same model.
Pros: Ease of use, Image quality
Cons: Battery life is a bit short, RAW format would be nice
Excerpt: This camera is a joy to use. If you're going to be in/around water I can't recommend this camera enough. Peace of mind! I walked, hiked, swam and kayaked around Hong Kong for ten days, rarely touching a setting, and wound up with properly focused macros, portraits, landscapes, and watchable video...
Excerpt: Just returned from a snorkeling trip to Hananuma Bay (Oahu) and Molokini (Maui). The D10 allowed me to bring back some amazing underwater memories. With the underwater setting, all colours came through in true and sharp detail. The buttons and menu system were easy to use and read in the water.
Summary: Here is a quick review from an average user about this camera. I got it for a family vacation in Michigan by Lake Walloon and it performed great. I also live by the beach and go swimming with my girls in the ocean. To say the least, we are a bit rough with this camera.
