Anyone have a point and shoot camera that is "supposed" to be waterproof? Like it or no? Recommendations?? There are times I think one might come in handy, especially when I don't want to expose my 50D to potentially wet elements. LOL

I would also be interested in any review/recommendations from anyone that has one of the waterproof cameras. I have been considering the new Canon Powershot D10 for my kayaking trips and this review is encouraging: http://www.switched.com/2010/03/08/what-underwater-point-and-shoot-camera-should-i-get/

More reviews here. The Canon does well in the reviews, but there are other good ones.

A friend and I both purchased the D10 for a recent boating trip. The pictures are crisp. Water pictures work out as long as you realize that the shutter speeds are slower due to lower light and while snorkeling as an example it is impossible to hold still. A friend found that the LCD screen did not work until thoroughly dried after a water encounter. But, worked again later. I found that in intense light setting when using the camera in a portrait position I lost the LCD screen. Have fun choosing. They come out new and better all the time.

Olympus has a nice one too, I believe this, (or a similar Olympus), was the one used on Daily Pics 132 for the water shot in Australia.

Ouch...a little more than what I can afford to spend. The Canon is more in my price range.

Yes, it is pricey, I'm hoping the price drops a little...

Strever, what kind of photo editing program are you thinking about? ...and to do what do you think I should do with it? :-)

most of the photo editing programs (some are free) will do what i did with your image
i removed the blue cast from your original image giving the other colors a chance to show up better

I purchased a Canon D10 in August and I must say that I am totally impressed with the quality of the pix it takes. I took it to Cancun last month and even took some underwater ones of the floating seaweed just to see how it would do. After getting out of the water, I immediately rinsed it off under the fresh water beach shower and have had no problems with it since. I'm glad I got it; saves me taking out my 50D in less than ideal conditions.

The video portion takes great fireworks videos too. I put it on the tripod and let it video away, only moving the camera when needed, but that is usually not needed if I set the height at the beginning in the right "sky range".

Great news. Glad you like your new toy. It sure sounded like a winner from the descriptions.

Good to hear you liked the D10. I still take it out like you in less than ideal conditions. It has been a fun toy to play with.
