Tips for caring for the Canon D10 waterproof camera

  • Always check the seals around the compartment doors before using the camera. Make sure they are correctly closed. If sand, hair or debris gets between the seals — the camera will leak.
  • Remove droplets of water from the lens before taking out-of-water photos
  • Canon recommends soaking the camera in fresh water for a couple hours after using it in the salt water, which helps protect seals and other camera parts. Read the manual for complete instructions
