Among the dozens of new P&S cameras that Canon Philippines introduced yesterday, the Powershot D10 attracted the most curiosity. And no, it’s not because it looked like a submarine of sorts.
Actually, the Canon Powershot D10 can be considered as a submersible since you can bring it on a diving trip up to a depth of 10 meters (33 ft). =)
This 12.1 megapixel camera is waterproof, freeze-proof and shock-proof. It’s cold-resistant between 14-104Â°F and can survive a 4 feet drop (not too high but a reasonable height). The lens is re-enforced with a steel/aluminum alloy to protect it from shattering during a fall.
There’s a large high-tension cord that crews into the sides of the camera. Canon also included a number of face-plates you canchoose from.
We challenged the Product Manager to a drop test which he willingly obliged.
They did not give any price for this but it’s already listed in Canon USA for $330.
