The Canon PowerShot line of digital cameras has long been known for providing its users with high quality user-friendly cameras. Canon has recently joined their competitors by releasing an all-weather 12.1 megapixel waterproof digital camera.
This camera can provide you with quality photos as it features Canon's signature scratch prooflens, 3x optical zoom capabilities, 4x digital zoom capabilities, a variety of ISO setting, and numerous shutter speeds. This camera can take your pics without flash in lightning storms or dark and is durable enough to perform in rain, snow, and underwater.
Since the Canon PowerShot D10 only features 12.1 megapixels, it will not take the high resolution pictures that some of the other waterproof cameras we reviewed are able to. Particularly when underwater, we recommend that you take multiple pictures of the shot you are trying to capture.
While this may not be our top underwater pic, it does offer a variety of special features that you may not come across with all of its competitors. The D10's settings can be programed to adjust topanorama mode, contrast correction, blink detection, and scene modes that include night exposure, kids and pets, long shutter, color accent, sunset mode and color swap.
If you are purchasing this camera for underwater use, we assume you are heading on a vacation. That being said, this camera is a bit bulky. It has rounded edges opposed to square, which can prevent the camera from scratching items it is packed next to. The camera is just over 4” wide and 2” deep, making it the largest underwater camera we have reviewed. Its size does allow for a 2.5” LCD display screen.It is still stylish in its design, but it is not have the most modern of appearances.
We are impressed by the PowerShot's ability to perform in water that is up to 33 feet deep, it is shockproof from a full 4ft, and it functions it temperatures ranging from 14-104 degrees Fahrenheit.
The PowerShot comes with a rechargeable battery, software, wrist strap, and USB cables. The battery can take at least 200 photos per charge. You must remember to purchase a memory card or your photos will not be saved.
As always any Canon products comes with Canon's impressive customer support. All of their cameras are protected by a full 1 year warranty for any parts and labor that is needed for the camera if it is used within its stated weather conditions. To learn more product specifications and to read customer reviews go to Canon's website. Here you can find the PowerShot D10 owners manuel and find the answers to its most commonly asked questions.
While this camera only features 12.1 megapixels and is a larger and bulker than most cameras, it makes up for what it lacks in durability, ease of use, and its vast variety of features. We recommend this camera for children, teens, and accident users of all ages.
