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

For me, it was simply because I have a Canon DSLR already and trust the brand. Also, bought it from a home shopping network so the return is really no questions asked just in case I was needing to return it.

I got a D10 to take on a trip to the Florida Keys last week. I used it during snorkeling and kayaking. A few samples below water:

I also took a video of a Spotted Eagle Ray that was cruising by. That video was a highlight of the trip! Great camera, but I've heard rumors they are discontinuing it.... the price has gone down a bit since I got mine. Perhaps it will be replaced with something newer?

I loved my D10 - bought it because we live in the Bahamas, and own a boat. I figured I couldn't go wrong for quick trips without worrying I'd drop the 5D Mk II into the sea.

I agonize over research, and do huge amounts before deciding on a camera. And I did that for the D10.

The photos were great - as you've seen in the samples fellow posters have provided.

And I got the Lens Error within three months. I can't do that, I live in the middle of nowhere and I don't have a camera store here (we don't have a grocery store here!) so I had to let it go, and replaced it with something non-waterproof, and that I worry about.

Still wondering if I should have tried another D10... but I'd just had my 40D get error messages (hence the 5D Mk II) and I didn't want more problems in another camera.

If Canon has fixed that Lens Error issue - I'd say go for it!

Same thought here, but looking at the features of the W90 compared to the Canon and it makes me really want to go for the Pentax. Particularly the 5x zoom and the HD video capabilities....just cant find much information about the picture quality of the Pentax.

Love my D10. It's been great on kayak trip. Used it at the local splash pad. Water drops sticking to lens create a gray blurry area on what is otherwise a great image.

Mine came up with the "lens error" after some 300-500 shots. Actual count not known. Only by taking the battery out did it go away. I will take it in for service if it happens again. Pretty sad to see these kinds of failure rates in a product line. This is my second canon P&S that has had an issue. I think for my next camera I will be looking somewhere else. Maybe I'll be luckier then.


I'm in Canada. Isn't that weird!

I've had a D10 for a couple of months.

Not used it in the sea yet but plan to on my hols later this year.

so far i've dunked it in streams and rivers with no problems.

It also take decent shots above the water and often gets bounced around when biking.

I really like this camera for when i'm out and about in the hills and don't want to take my dSlr with me.

No problems so far.

Here's a couple of random shots.

Had the same problem. Sent it in to Canon 2 times with short return times. The third time I sent it in , they replaced the lens assembly and i got it back just before my trip. I'm now currently in Akumal Bay, Mexico and have been snorkeling with it every day without fail. I will post pics later as I acquire more photos of the Awesome turtles this place is known for.

Way cool turtle! You may have done so already, but be sure to set your 'scene' mode to underwater.

Yeah. Thanks MizzouMan. I usually forget to take it off of underwater. LOL.
The water was a bit murky for some reason this day.

Great captures. My D10 came up with the lens error twice. I sent it in for service before the warranty runs out. Hope to get it back soon.

You will get it back in working order soon. Enjoy it when you do.

Well looks like I spoke too soon. Used mine the other day for a couple of random indoor shots and had the 'lens error, reset camera' message displayed. Camera would switch itself off and if I tried to turn it back on it would beep, display the above error message and turn itself off.

I removed the battery and left it. Put the battery back in and was able to access the menu. I scrolled to the reset all settings and after this camera seemed fine.

I took more pics and all came out ok. I'll see how it goes but if the error comes back I’ll send it in.

Here's a couple more shots from mine.
