Rugged Design: The Rugged Canon PowerShot D10 digital camera allows
you to take it almost anywhere - waterproof to 33
feet (IPX8), cold resistant from 14-104°F, shockproof up to 4 feet, and
Canon engineered this digital camera to be durable enough
to go where you go and still produce great images. This unique camera is
waterproof down to 33 feet so you can take it scuba diving, snorkeling or
surfing. It is also freeze-proof and can withstand extremes of temperature from
14-104°F so it is also ideal for snowboarding, mountaineering and more. Plus,
the D10 is shockproof up to a 4.0 feet drop and is dustproof.
Note: The camera cannot be used in hot
springs or other mineralized waters.
PureColor LCD II Monitor: The Canon PowerShot
D10 has a 2.5" TFT color LCD monitor featuring approximately 230,000
