Canon PowerShot D10 Review at Engadget
Engadget has posted a review of the Canon Powershot D10, along with some sample images and underwater video.
All told, Canon’s PowerShot D10 is a stellar adventure camera. It’s more than just a waterproof camera that’s only marginally larger than a standard P&S, it’s a rugged, lightweight shooter that should suit most everyone but the professionals in attendance.
With the new EWC10 camera housing, you’ll be ready for the pool side and the pool bottom this summer.
Norderstedt, April 2007 – Glorious blue sky and sea, rich green palms and shimmering white sand: a colourful scenario that every holiday-maker yearns for. Equipped with the bright red EXILIM snorkel housing EWC-10 for CASIO’s two digital compact cameras EX-Z75 and EX-Z65, aquatic athletes can now capture the resplendently multi-coloured fishes directly in the photo. Thanks to the perfect protection by the EWC-10, snorklers can take their EXILIM down to a depth of three meters. The housing is also the perfect companion on the beach, as it keeps sand away from the camera. The operability of EX-Z75 and EX-Z65 remains pretty easy with the EWC-10, as the individual control keys can be found on the housing. The new underwater housing EWC-10 from CASIO – a stylish eye-catcher and all-round protection for the two latest EXILIM Zoom models.
