Part of my job is taking photos. The better photos I take, the more desirable my work is to editors. Most often I use a Canon Rebel T2i with various lenses but when I’m hunting or working on a range I need a compact point an shoot camera.
One problem hunters have with cameras is water. I was on a red stag hunt in New Zealand. A place that when it rains, it really rains; “like a cow pissing on a flat rock” is what grandpa used to say. Even though I had my point and shoot camera in a pocket under rain gear – Gortex by the way – it was ruined. I needed a waterproof, compact camera.
The answer was the Canon Powershot D10.
This little gem is waterproof, freezeproof and shockproof. Plus it’s got all the high performance features you expect from a Canon digital camera to include 12.1 megapixels of resolution.
I’ve taken photos under water, photos that were used as two-page spreads in magazines, video for the web and even the great LUCK SHOT seen in my last post. If you are looking for a compact camera for hunting or for the range, this is a great deal for less than $ 300.
