Canon D10 Review

Kevin Pereira and Alison Haislip cover the Canon D10, a weatherproof digital camera that could be perfect for your next camping trip where you scuba-dive into the Artic Ocean.

What You Need To Know

  • The Canon Powershot D10 is 2" thick, a slightly odd shape to hold and a fun detachable lanyard.
  • It's larger than the Olympus weatherproof 1030SW camera but the Canon's larger body with bigger buttons makes it easier to use.
  • The camera was hardy enough to survive our AOTS tests, which included multiple drop-kicking, surfing and snowboarding.
  • The snowboarding pictures came out great despite the crazy storms.
  • It's pretty close to the best weather-proof camera that can take good photos inside and outside.
  • Colors are accurate and bright, and very little noise even at higher ISOs.
  • Indoor shots aren't bad and sometimes blur too much. The flash over-exposes a little bit, as well.
  • Overall, pictures look great, it's easy to use and useful to have around.


  • $280.00
  • This is a good deal for the camera, but doesn't mean you should replace this with your regular poitn and shoots for normal occasions.

    With the features like Waterproof, Shockproof, Freezeproof, the Canon PowerShot D10, like most of the company s models, is a technological marvel. Combining low price, high-tech, and ease of use is a Canon specialty. They ve raised the bar to new heights in this case.

    what you failed to take into account, this camera will go down to 33 feet!!!!! A vast number of divers never go below that but they do go below the 3-10 foot range which is as deep as the olympus will go. So for an avid skindiver or casual scuba diver this is a GREAT camera not just good. You do not have to buy a housing which at the VERY least i.e. for a Canon G9, costs $150 going up to $1,500 (for just a housing).
