I bought this camera and found it to be a decent camera with one major problem not identified in the review. When you turn it off, or it times out, the camera remains unresponsive for up to 20 seconds before you can turn it back on. The Canon rep told me this is how it works. This is a major fail on the part of Canon. I have had several missed shots because the camera had just timed out and shut itself down when I wanted to turn it on to take a picture. No luck, and the scene I wanted was gone before I could get the camera back on.

Great review, I would be using this as a second camera, specifically for holidays on the water or at a pool, moist conditions. It would have been nice if you would have shown us some under water pics hence this being an underwater camera.

Remko was right. all your sample images are not under water. there is one half immersed but im not satisfied with it.

Just got the camera thru “Airmiles”. Got the blue one, yellow and silver not available thru airmiles.
Happy with it so far, waiting for my Dominican holiday to try the underwater shots.
Its fairly heavy which I like, very sturdy, buttons are very good to use. I certainly would use the strap since camera is a bit ‘slippery’ and that when its dry.

The comment by Jeff Peters; I experimented and its only a few second delay on mine when turning off and on again.

Took some pics and video in a fast streaming river and they were awesome. !

The camera is reported to be water proof to 33 feet.  It is not.  I really liked mine until it took it snorkeling and the camera flooded and died.  The factory charged me $190 to replace it.

Why does no one mention the LCD screen visibility in bright sun?  The D10 is the only camera I’ve found where you can actually SEE the screen in sunlight.  Is the D20 the same?  One would think Canon would be boasting about this feature, which is kind of critical on an outdoor camera with no viewfinder.
