“The design of the Canon PowerShot D10 is spot-on for a ruggedised camera. It feels good to use and, most importantly, it’s very easy to use. It takes clear photos but we wish it rendered them with more contrast. Pick it up if you’re after a ruggedised camera for snorkelling, or just to use while you hang around the pool.”
“Canon's first attempt at an underwater camera is pretty impressive. There are a couple of areas to improve on like its video implementation and overall design, but for the most part the PowerShot D10 gets it right.”
“A decent compact camera with a separate underwater housing would cost as much, if not more, than the PowerShot D10, and you wouldn't get the other benefits or convenience either. The D10 will mostly appeal to the more active user, but is still a good bet simply for taking to the beach this summer.”
"Canon's entry into the world of the water, cold and shockproof, the CyberShot D10, distinguishes itself by being comparatively inexpensive ($329.95), rounded and brightly colored in design, and able to handle up to 33 feet of water. On the downside, it only has a 3x zoom, and is far too big to fit in a pocket."
“As a camera for using in extreme conditions, the PowerShot D10 offers a lot, but in order to take advantage of this, users will have to settle for some compromises in terms of features and performance. As the saying goes, you pays your money and you takes your choice.”
“While we are not usually to be blinded by gimmickry, we have to admit it was the company's new waterproof PowerShot D10 that first caught our eye — mainly because it's a bit of an odd-looking camera.”
