Or get a waterproof case for a standard compact P&S? Canon do cases rated up to 10ft depth for the "Elph" range for around $60.

Is it for under water or just to keep it dry in the rain? Canon does housings for various Ixus models with a rating of about 40m. Ikelite does housings as well. Apart from the housing, you really need an accessory wide angle lens + strobe to get the best results underwater.

If you just want to keep it dry in the rain or dunk it at the beach, Ewa Marine does soft cases.

You might try GOOGLE, they seem to know a lot about all kinds of things! OR, look at Canon's offerings on their site. B+H is another up to date vendor...

Semantics comes into play here.

"Waterproof"...No. you would have to use one of the very expensive underwater diving housings by third parties or the less expensive Canon housings that are designed for several Canon P&S models (ie some G series, SX series).

If by "waterproof" you mean can I take it underwater to around 30 feet with no supplemental housings: Yes... there are two Canon D10 and D20.


Lotsa stuff, running outta room and a wife...I keep looking at her and wondering??? :lol:

Don't look at the D10,
The D20 is superior in every sense -
It has a much wider lens, a longer zoom, a better sensor, 1080p video,
a closer macro range, a built-in GPS and a higher shock-proof rate.
True, the D10 is $100 cheaper, but I'd take the D20 over it without hesitation.
My only pause would be to check out Nikon's AW100, which is a strong competitor to the D20.

I have been waiting for the D20, but I don't think I will have it in time for a trip next month.

Most Canon point and shoots also have Canon underwater (albeit expensive) cases available. These are also great for blowing sand etc.

Another vote for D20 if you can hold off for release it's going to be an amazing little camera. :-)

Here's the DPR waterproof reviews the D10 was included in 2009;

Here's the latest waterproof reviews on DPR, but they did not include the D10, because it had been covered in 2009, and the D20 was not out last year at the time.

http://www.dpreview.co​m …terproofcompact​grouptest/ (external link)

The D20 should be better, but so far it's an unknown. Best guess is it will be better.

I have the Canon underwater case for my G9, and it works well, but it makes the camera large and bulky. I only use it when kayaking, so something like the D10 or D20 would better for me in those circumstances.
