Seeking better waterproofness!
Well, we finally broke down and did it, we ordered a new point-and-shoot waterRESISTANT camera. As much as we love our Canon PowerShot D10, because it has allowed us to take underwater photos like this…
and underwater videos like this…
…we fear it has lost its “waterproofness.” I contemplated purchasing the exact model again, and then taking better care of it this time around, but as far as cameras go, it’s pretty old technology. I don’t know why Canon hasn’t upgraded it!
After much debate, the camera we chose to replace it with is the Nikon COOLPIX AW100. One of the important features that this camera offers, aside from the cool orange color 🙂 is that it shoots HD video in full 1080P, the same as our GoPro HD Hero 2.
And speaking of the GoPro, we also ordered the brand new Dive Housing for it. This relatively-inexpensive add-on apparently fixes the issues that this cool little camera has with underwater pics and videos.
I hope that, armed with these two new tools, we should now be all set to offer up even better visual content on our blog.
Edit May 25, 2012: Apparently Canon has updated the D10. Behold the recently released Canon PowerShot D20. Had I known about this camera I might have ordered it instead.
