A perfect point-and-shoot device to gift

Why not gift a good camera that is built to last to your relative, friend or colleague. He or she would like to receive a highly functional and sturdy camera with a resilient body.

For slightly rough usage, a camera that is both water resistant and shockproof will be a perfect choice. In effect, it will make an ideal companion on trips to muddy hiking trails, sandy beaches, and even underwater adventures. If you can afford, you can certainly consider gifting a camera that is perfect for those tough moments in life.

Let us check the worth of Canon PowerShot D10 as a gifting option. It pitches itself directly against Olympus’ Tough range. In fact, the PowerShot D10 is Canon’s first native underwater camera. It comes with optional longer straps and a super-strong wrist leash.

Also, the Canon’s tough, funky chassis keeps it safe from water as far as 33 feet deep and even from a four feet fall. It can deliver some great imagery. The issue with many rugged cameras is the picture quality. D10 seems to have all the basic components of a comprehensive camera, as is the feature of other Canon’s PowerShot models.

Basic specs are a 12.1 megapixel CCD imager, a 3x zoom lens with optical image stabilization, and Canon’s latest DIGIC IV processing. The extended battery life, which lasts up to 190 shots at single charge, is another big plus. This definitely makes it a great choice outdoor shoots.

As proclaimed, it is waterproof, freezeproof as well as shockproof. It carries an accurate autofocus. However, its 3x zoom along with a 2.5” display is not really high-end for cameras. But if you want to gift just a point-and-shoot device, its comprehensive range of different scene modes make Canon D10 at a price tag of Rs 20,995 a good choice.
