This has been a great little knock about camera that I use for work. I climb towers for a living and it has been bouncing around in my shoulder bag to take technical shots with during repairs with no protection and it hasnt missed a beat. Within the limitations of this style of camera I have no hesitation in recommending it. Small negative is I would have preferred a wider angle lens than 35mm but I have still got plenty of good photos from it. Problems: The battery door has a microswitch on ...

The picture quality is quite good and I was happy with this camera until I used it for the first time under water. I only managed to take four pictures on a snorkel trip to Maui, nothing more than two feet deep. The screen turned dark and upon inspection I found the camera full of sea water. I removed the card and battery. I then rinsed the camera with fresh tap water. With both covers open I used a vacuum cleaner on the battery chamber and hot air from a hair dryer on the USB opening. I ...

I bought my D10 because I wanted a small rugged camera I could take on vacations instead of my bulky dSLR. The D10 seemed a good choice, as I had good experiences with Canon Powershot cameras before, and it had received good reviews here on dpreview. At first I thought my camera was defective, but it's been serviced and apparently this is really how the camera is. The automatic modes are effectively unusable due to extremely poor white balance and metering. I have found the only way to get ...

Excellent inexpensive camera. I initially purchased this camera for it's underwater feature only and figured I could use my other camera for everything else. After seeing how clear ALL of the pics turned out, I've used it as an everyday camera. The camera's video mode is quite nice too. I recorded the entire "changing of the guards" at Arlington Cemetery and it was crisp and clear. It's nice to finally have a camera you can take literally EVERYWHERE and not worry about it getting banged ...

This camera is a joy to use. If you're going to be in/around water I can't recommend this camera enough. Peace of mind! I walked, hiked, swam and kayaked around Hong Kong for ten days, rarely touching a setting, and wound up with properly focused macros, portraits, landscapes, and watchable video clips. We were all impressed with the auto mode intelligence. Save for night shots, which this camera does *not* do well (seriously, I'd tote another just for night), image quality was more than ...

I just bought this camera for a trip to Mexico. Excellent images under water and I don't tell you the faces of the people around me : Is this a underwater camera ? Yes and a very good camera for every moment in holidays. Problems: No problems found. I just clean it after going to saltwater and dry it. Perfect.

I bought this little Camera prior to our trip to Jamaica. My girlfriend did not want to have to drag either my 1D or 5D and lenses on this trip. After reading several reviews, I made my purchase and could not be happier. The first thing I will say to anyone that buys a new camera is to read the manual. On the plane I thumbed through the manual and found everything to be laid out pretty well and easy to access. I am not normally a point and shoot person but this little camera is fun to ...

Brilliant little camera. I get best results in P mode, vivid and -1/3EV. Low light performance is quite good with ISO400 very usable. Problems: AWB is not quite there yet.

Just returned from a snorkeling trip to Hananuma Bay (Oahu) and Molokini (Maui). The D10 allowed me to bring back some amazing underwater memories. With the underwater setting, all colours came through in true and sharp detail. The buttons and menu system were easy to use and read in the water. The camera performed flawlessly up to and perhaps beyond the 10 meter limit at Molokini when free diving with friends who were using special underwater housings on their cameras. The lens and LCD ...
