5.0 out of 5 stars Great Camera April 22 2011
By Frank G
I bought this camera because we were going on a cruise and were stopping in a lot of ports, so we were going to be doing a lot of snorkling with the kids. I always hated buying the disposible ones(the pictures always come out grainy). I read all the reviews, some good, some bad. Screw all the bad reviews. This camera was great. Excellent pictures and videos. Its very easy to change settings underwater. My 9 and 10 year old kids even found it easy to use underwater. It also takes great pictures while not in the water. Canon developed this camera around the porthole looking lens, not like other how designed their cameras to be slim and to fit in your pocket. Lets face it, if your going snorkling, scuba diving, and your carrying all that equipment with you, a little bulkier camera with better features won't be a issue. I would recommend this camera to anyone. The battery lasts a very long time. I think i shot about 80 pictures and 10 minutes of video before having to change the battery. I do recommend you get a second battery. It's always good to keep one on charge. You should also get at least 16gb (10c)HD sim card. You never know when you going to need that little extra video. If you want to se some pictures email me at I'll email you back some .

5.0 out of 5 stars Canon D10 Under Water Dec 24 2010
By Deborah
Length: 0:24 Mins
This is a video inside my Rivulus cylindraceus (killifish) aquarium. Nice clear video; it was difficult manoeuvring but that's not the camera's fault, just the confined space. Camera takes video in .mov format; software it comes with converts it to .avi. Added the music in later in my own Pinnacle Studio program which I use to make DVDs/convert to mpg. Only had the camera a month so far but I am quite impressed. It is a larger camera compared to other waterproofs; I specifically wanted a Canon as I was used to Canon controls on my other digitals. Still images are also great; better "dark" photos than a Canon PowerShot A480; on par with PowerShot A610. Only 3x zoom because of the waterproof enclosure but sufficient. Wrist strap can be attached on any of the 4 corners of the camera. Battery seemed to last quite long. (One review I had read stated the video mode doesn't record sound but, indeed, there is a small mic that captures sound and quite well - I had to lower the sound level in my final rendering because it was too loud and also added the music to muffle the loud aquarium noise.)

1.0 out of 5 stars Suffers Canon's longstanding lens error Oct. 13 2012
By Chris TOP 1000 REVIEWER

Picture quality from this camera is EXCELLENT; both above and under water. While I'm used to using DSLR cameras on full manual to extract the best possible picture quality, the automatic scene modes on this camera do a great job at taking excellent photos. Great job Canon.

The lanyard that comes with the camera attaches via a bayonet mount to any of four corners of the camera with a metal to metal connection. This is wonderfully convenient feature and facilitates tying the camera to your wrist, backpack or piece of clothing in whatever why would make it most convenient to use. Another great job Canon.


After using this camera for about a week, doing light snorkeling in warm water in the Caribbean, it simply stopped turning on. All the usual remedies were tried - remove and replace batteries and memory cards and so forth. Nada.

Well within the warranty period (it was a few weeks old), Canon replaced the camera. I promptly sold the new camera.


There is a large body of literature online pointing to a longstanding problem with Canon point-and-shoot camera; Google "Canon E18 error". That and similar messages indicate a mechanical lens error that prevents the camera from starting up and/or shutting down. This goes back YEARS and affects multiple camera models. I had a very old Canon Powershot A60 that did the same thing. I chalked that up to just an old camera wearing out, despite being babied. Not so, apparently - bad on you Canon.

I won't be buying a Canon point and shoot camera again.

5.0 out of 5 stars love this camera Jan. 16 2011
By kimp
My Dad and I both purchased a underwater cameras this year... he took his Olympus to Mexico, I took my Canon to Hawaii. His broke sitting by the pool the first day (the instant it got wet) and mine took beautiful underwater pictures and video, even after it was smashed against the rocks (unintentionally of course).

The only downside to this camera is that you cannot change battery until you take the camera home and soak it in fresh water and allow to dry. This is the only way to get the salt crystals off and ensure the seals maintain their integrity. The upside is the camera battery has a long enough life that you should be OK for the day as long as you start with a full charge.

Definitely worth the extra money! 5 stars for sure!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Camera Jan. 6 2013
Verified Purchase
Got this camera on sale just before Christmas and it was well worth every penny. Did lots of research prior to choosing this camera and many other underwater cameras had terrible reviews compared to the great reivews this one consistently received. Word of warning, any underwater camera you purchase will require a bit of extra care and work on the part of the owner (eg. needs to be soaked in fresh water after use in salt water to keep seals from drying out and causing leaks - make sure to charge your battery before use in salt water so you won't have to open it while it's salty and always read the manual for care guidelines). This camera worked amazingly well in and out of the water and was great for snorkeling, kayaking, rainy days, etc. Almost didn't need my more expensive Cannon as this one was much more convenient and took the same quality pictures.
