Ok camera for its purpose

DynaBoss "DynaBoss", Amazon
28 November 2013
  • Summary: There is nothing special about this camera, it is basic point and shot with all the related problems everybody knows, such as slow and unreliable focus, noise in low light, etc. The only reason to consider this camera is because it is sealed, you can take it with you to pool, underwater, etc. Now, you may seen this in other reviews, camera is made entirely of hard plastic. By looking on pictures I thought it is rubber and metal, but this is not true.

Good camera, has limits

Martin G, B&H Photo
14 August 2013
  • Excerpt: I bought the Olympus TG-2, but it leaked the third time I took it in the water. Never went deeper than 2 feet into water. Anyway, everything else is Canon, so I sent it back and ordered the Canon. So far, so good. The Olympus had faster autofocus, this one isn't quite as fast. Even so, I bought it just for the pool, and it takes good pictures. A bit pricey for that purpose, but then again, so was the Olympus.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Battery Life, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay

User Review

Rich, Canon
24 July 2013
  • Conclusion: I've had this camera for a little over a year. It was fun while it lasted. The camera may not seal correctly thus causing the unit to be flooded with water. So much for the underwater capability. All of my cameras are Canons but I would think twice about purchasing this unit.
  • Pros: great pic quality
  • Cons: camera may not seal right

new vs old

Susie, Amazon
17 June 2013
  • Summary: After using this camera I personally like the old model better. Picture quality is okay, but not as good as last one. I also don't like where some of the buttons are located. Ie. The playback button and the on/off button are on top so I am constantly turning off the camera instead of taking a picture.

  • Summary: Pretty good camera it does what it says it will do but I returned it only because I found a better deal at my local walmart for around the same price, the new fujifilm that can go up to 50 feet under water, but if I hadn't found this camera I would have kept the cannon, good camera over all.

questionable human factors

Bababoe, B&H Photo
9 September 2012
  • Excerpt: This is the second canon underwater camera I have purchased. all in all the camera works well. But the hand strap is designed for a left handed person. There are two places to put the hand strap. If you put the quick release on the bottom, then the camera does not sit flat on the table. If you put it on the top, a right handed person has to take it off the hand to use it.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD
  • Cons: Poor Strap Human Factors

Canon's mediocre upgrade

B. Menke, Amazon
22 June 2012
  • Summary: I bought the Canon D10 when it first came out and have enjoyed the camera very much. I had two issues with it though, the body was too fat and the video was only 640 x 480. When the new Canon D20 came out it looked like just what I was looking for, slim design and HD video. I bought it from Amazon and couldn't wait to try it out. At first I wasn't sure if I liked the new curvy design, but it has grown on me and is functional for holding the camera.
