Suddenly there seem to be an avalanche of waterproof/adventure type camera as of this year. AFTER I’ve bought my Olympus mju1030 which I’m not too happy with!
This one seems to look good. I like the funky design too!
Canon has launched the PowerShot D10, its first waterproof digital compact. It is claimed to be waterproof up to 10 meters, freeze proof up to -10 degrees, shockproof when dropped from a height of 1.22 meters and dust proof. In addition, there are a range of optional protective accessories available. The camera has a 12.1MP sensor, 3x optical zoom and a 2.5″ LCD, and includes Smart Auto Mode, Face Select & Track, Blink Detection and Face Self-timer.
RRP: $330 / RM1,400 (Approx.)
Here’s another that caught my attention. Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT-1/TS1
Panasonic’s first rugged digital compact and the world’s first to feature AVCHD lite HD video recording. The TS1 (FT1 in Europe) is designed to be dustproof, waterproof up to 3 meters and shockproof up to 1.3 meters. It incorporates AVCHD Lite video compression in 3 quality levels to allow longer HD video recording. Sporting a 12.1MP sensor, 28-129mm equivalent lens and 2.7″ LCD, the camera also includes features such as Intelligent Auto Mode, Optical Image Stabilizer and Face recognition.
RRP: $400 / RM1,500 (Approx.)
