Launching in February 2009, the D10 is designed for adventure. It has a 12.1-megapixel CCD sensor and new smart auto mode (at the time) with Scene Detection technology. Moreover, its 18 scene modes deliver worry-free shooting.

For use from surfing and snorkeling to skiing and mountaineering, the P&S is waterproof to depths of 33 feet, withstands the shock of a 4-foot drop onto a hard surface and functions at temperatures down to 14ºF.

Thanks to a connection system on the camera body’s corners, you can tailor a setup for different activities. Plus, you can customize the camera’s appearance with an optional colored front cover set.

The D10 also has a 2.5-inch color LCD and a 3x optical zoom, 35–105mm-equivalent f/2.8–4.9 lens with framing options. An image stabilizer helps prevent camera-shake from causing unwanted blur, and Canon’s Motion Detection technology detects camera and subject movement and adjusts settings accordingly. canon_D10_back

Other features are face detection; blink detection; i-contrast that brightens dark areas in an image without blowing out lighter areas; special scene modes, like underwater, snow and beach; and the ability to record 30-fps VGA movies. In addition to SD/SDHC and MMC memory cards, the D10 supports MMCplus and HC MMCplus cards. It retailed for $329.29 at launch.
