Conclusion: I live on the Gulf Coast and purchased my first Canon Power Shot D10 just before the 2010 BP oil Spill. We liked the fact that there are no moving external parts and found it to take great pictures. I sampled twice weekly as the oil was coming ashore and took thousands of great pictures...and then one day the camera was dead.
Excerpt: The first thing I had trouble with was the position of the on/off switch on top of the camera. There was a lot of times that i accidentally turned it off while taking a picture. The Switches should have been in a different location. The GPS worked well but only outdoors, If you get this camera and intend to use it all day get 1-2 backup batteries since it's battery life is only fair. I used an average of 1-2 extra battery while on vacation taking pics all day.
Excerpt: I am an outdoor nut and love to capture the moments. Canon has always been my choice but I have killed two powershots from the elements, last being rain. So I chose to try the Power Shot D20. So far it is working just fine. Like all the Canon products, you can not beat the quality and the image quality. I have used it on the water and love the camera. The only improvements I would like to see is a stronger optical zoom and a panoramic mode added.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD

Summary: I bought this to take on a cruise. this camera worked great as a normal point and shoot. and once we figured out how to change the setting for underwater the images were pretty good. don't make the same mistake i did, spend some time playing with this camera before taking it on a trip. pros- solid and very water proof, great battery life, pretty good color under water cons- the power button is close to the trigger, so its easy to turn the camera off by accident.
Excerpt: I bought this camera to replace a Canon Powershot that had died. I use my camera a lot, particularly outdoors, so I wanted one that would hold up to water exposure. The camera is heavier and bulkier than a similar, non-waterproof camera would be. It's easy to use and takes decent photos - although my biggest disappointment is that my iPhone actually takes better photos.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light
