Excerpt: I used the product to take underwater images as well as to take images above water while in pouring rain. The images underwater are pretty good - certainly not close to a DSLR but impressive for the ease of use and size. Using it in the rain was less than ideal, actually, because the lack of hood / shelf of any kind allows for unavoidable rain spots on the lens (a problem avoided by full underwater submersion). Overall, works well for its intended purpose.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Battery Life, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: This is the first waterproof camera I have ever owned and I haven't tried it underwater yet. In the meantime, I am pleased with the image quality I am getting. The edges look better zoomed in than a P&S I paid $ for. I do like the slight heaviness of the camera. It makes it feel solid and dependable in my hands. You have to use the camera relatively often to remember how to get to some of the features in the menu.
Excerpt: Bought this to take out on sailing. It was great. The colors are good. Comparable to my 60d . The quick video button was really handy as it let you go to video mode instantly. The quality of the video is super.
Pros: Easy to Use, Great Resolution, Small / Compact
Excerpt: Great camera, great pictures. Only 4 stars because when it's in the UW case (Canon WP-DC45 Waterproof Case) and I'm in the water, I'm worried that it might time out and go off and I won't know it. It hasn't happened yet, but I don't see any light on and the lens doesn't visibly extend. The only way to tell if it's on is looking at the display. But it's a good camera! Low shutter lag and great quality pictures!
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.
