Hi

I'm trying to make as informed decision as possible about getting either the Canon D10 or Panasonic TS2, I've weighed up plenty other options (Pentax W90, Sony, Olympus, & Fuji) but these two seem to consistently have good / better reviews... now to decide on one.

It's water purposes would be used mainly for snorkeling, and paddling / river kayaking etc - on top which it needs to be dragged up cliffs and over mountains. Have always had Canon's so trying not to be biased, the clunky unpractical shape is a big deterrent, especially for helmet mounting for paddling, think its going to pull the helmet over my eyes!

Both seem to have as good an image quality as each other as can be expected for u/w point-&-shoots, though the ts2 video seems better...

Any pearls of wisdom (or comparisons of shots to show image quality) that you have to share would be greatly appreciated.

Eric

I've been screwing around with a TS2 for a few months now, including snorkeling in kona.

It has wider angle, and much better shutter lag the the d10, which is why I bought it.

It is fun, and works fine.

I've had the D10 for a couple of years now and can't fault it, gives great photos and is tough as boots :)
