There are several models of Canon underwater cameras to choose from but the first, and still the best, is the Canon PowerShot D10. This Canon underwater camera features a 12.1 megapixel sensor along with a 2.5-inch LCD screen. Additionally users will enjoy the 3x zoom. While this camera is less than sleek looking, it offers top of the line photographs for under the water photography. The Canon PowerShot D10 features rounded corners and an enclosed lens housing which helps it remain water resistant without being bulk. The manufacturer claims that this Canon waterproof camera can be used at depths of 10 meters.

The layout of this camera is designed for easy use. First, the rounded edges and thick housing offer two waterproof seals that cover the important components of the camera. The buttons are slightly more risen than other models and are overall easier to use under the water. This Canon underwater camera is light weight and compact for even the smallest of divers. It can operate at temperatures as low as -10 degrees and is not only shockproof but also dust proof. The only downfall of the Canon PowerShot D10 is that the battery recommended does not share the same temperature range. For this reason the battery is likely to run dry quickly and possible leave you without enough pictures from your underwater adventure. On average, users are able to take 220 pictures during the life of one battery. The upside is that the batter compartment is designed to stay 100% dry at all times.

Another positive feature of the Canon PowerShot D10 is the built-in flash. This has a maximum range of 3.2 meters. There are several flash setting as well including on, off, auto and slow synch. Additionally you can apply red-eye protection while taking your pictures. Many cameras tend to take poor quality pictures once the zoom is in full function. This is not the case with this Canon underwater camera. In fact, the Canon PowerShot D10 offers superior quality photos no matter what. The zoom button is appropriately placed on the top of the camera and is easy to access and adjust while underwater. The continuous blur action option will allow you to take pictures of animals moving under the water without getting blurred images. To make photography easier, there is also an autofocus option on the Canon PowerShot D10. The face recognition feature is drastically better than previous Canon cameras. The camera also has manual focusing options.
The Canon PowerShot D10 underwater camera is ideal for someone looking for a camera to use on water adventures and snorkeling. While this Canon underwater camera is not designed for deep sea diving, it will still offer supreme pictures. The compact, lightweight design makes it easy to carry and the larger buttons help the camera be more user friendly. With the 2.5-inch, brilliant screen adding to the mix, this is one underwater camera that is sure to impress.
