I started with a G9. Had serious dust issues with it. Eventually moved over to a DSLR. But always missed the P&S because of its (pocket) size. I've been thinking about going back to the G line. But that dust issues was always looming overhead. After reading about the D10 I think I found my new P&S. In a shoot out with 5 or 6 other waterproof cameras the D10 came out on top.

I am curious to see how it's image quality and macro features compared to the G9.

Is there a image posting section for the P&S cameras? Or only for the big SLR lenses? It would be interesting to see some sample shots.

Cheers!

I recently bought a D10 and took it on a short trip, used it for the indoor pool. The photos were not as good as those I got from my waterproof Olympus, I am hoping the outdoor capabilities are better.

Anyone ever hear about certain problems with the D10? Leaking? Etc?

I have one and it worked flawlessly with pics being very nice as well(check out my other post of the D10) https://photography-on-the.net …hp?t=648484&hig​hlight=d10 . I have since sent it in to be fixed as it gave a lens error and wouldn't reset. I believe that is the common problem you might have with this camera. Seems the lens is inside the body and doesn't protrude so it will "stick" and cause the error message. Otherwise, if you take the time and clean it after use in salt water especially, then you should have no problems with leaking with this camera. Having said that, the lens issue does pop up on occasion. I did get it working the first time I had it. Just not the second time.:rolleyes: Hope that helps a bit.

Lens error after 600 shots. I got it working again but we will see for how long. Otherwise a flawless, fun camera with surprising IQ.

I am up to 156 shots. :) I all carrying it around with me pretty much all the time. I figure if it is going to break I will make it happen within the first year.

Snap away Xbox! I have 5 months left on the warranty. If it is going to break I hope it does it soon. I have this with me every day too. Fun camera!

Yeah I got the error after 10 months of having the camera and had to send it in. Love this camera. I sent it in to canon repair and I got it back in 3 days! Works like new. Enjoy it as I do.

I just rented the D10 from lensrentals.com for our trip to Jamaica. I used it underwater several times, and the more I used it the better results I got with it. Here are a few samples of the shots I got.

Awesome shots Mizzouman, can't wait to get back in the water with mine. Hopefully get some really nice pics of loggerhead turtles and other sealife.

Any reason why you went for the D10 over the Pentax W90?

Thanks, BTL. :) That was my first experience with underwater photography. It did nice video, too.

Just to answer this question, even though the thread seems to have moved on.

The D10 is a nice little camera. The G series, however, creates even higher quality images and the macros turn out sweet :) Whether it's worth the price difference is something each user will have to determine individually.
