Not Waterproof Over Time


As a sea kayaker I need a waterproof camera. The Canon D10, like the Canon D20, is rated for underwater use to a depth of 33 feet. However, when the camera was just over one year old, my kayak caught a large starboard wave, capsizing my kayak. I immediately rolled back upright. My Canon D10 camera was no more than three (3) feet underwater for no more than six (6) seconds. The camera did not function after that. When I returned home I opened the battery case and observed that water had entered the camera. I contacted Canon and they wanted to charge me $179.00 plus tax plus shipping both ways for a refurbished D10. I expected Canon to stand behind their product, but they did not. I just purchased a second D10 because Adorama offered such a good price and am hoping this one will last longer that my first camera. When functioning, the D10 takes good photographs, although for action shots, it takes the camera forever to focus and take the picture after the shutter button is depressed. However, mechanically, especially in terms of waterproofing, it is NOT robust. The seal for the battery compartment wears out relatively quickly and Canon does NOT sell replacement seals. Unbelievable!


Versatile Camera


I really got tired of using separate and expensive water proof casing for my P&S cameras. The D10 solved the problem. Whether fishing rivers or snorkeling I know I can count on this baby to do the job!


Best little camera I own


Best little camera I own. My main camera is an advanced Nikon DSLR system. But I always have this little Canon with me. I have used it in water, mud, on my bike, etc. It is great. Takes great pictures and is virtually bomb proof. If you are active and always want a camera with you, this is the camera for you.


Awesome underwater camera


Bought it for taking pictures underwater. This will also be great for skiing and kayaking. My Canon EOS digital Rebel is too heavy and bulky for those activities. Love the macro. Have not tried all of the different features and can't wait to try.


Great shots, but clunky.


I bought this for kayaking. It takes excellent photos for a point-and-shoot. It also starts much faster than the Pentaxes I used before. The one drawback is that the lens bulge makes it difficult to pull out of the pocket of my PFD -- or any pocket, for that matter.




I wanted a rugged point and shoot to use when there was time to use my dslr. It was handy in the downpour I experienced in Uganda while trekking to mountain gorillas. This year I intend to use it in Devil's Pool at Victoria Falls!




I take this into bad weather and salt and fresh water and has performed very well. Good IQ for the size. Good for close ups underwater as well. Don't like the design too much, but it contributes to the ruggedness and I can get it easily out of my pockets when sailing since it has nothing which can snag on things. Can take a fair amount of abuse snowboarding and skiing as well. Overall brilliant.


Love it !


We use the camera during snorkeling at the Carribean and we took amazing pictures/videos underwater and they turned amazing !


best underwater camera

Great underwater camera
