Has anyone tried a Canon Powershot D10 "waterproof" camera?

After doing some research and finding Australian cavers using the Canon D10, I bought one. I tried it out this weekend in a multi-drop wet cave. The pictures came out nice, and it was easy to use with wet, muddy hands.

I also used it in some underwater caves in Mexico. Aside from the problem of the flash being close to the lens, it took pretty nice pictures there too.

I bought the Powershot D10 earlier this year and it has been on SEVERAL cave trips. It is by no means a professional camera but it is perfect for quick shots. I have crawled 1/2+ miles with the camera in my pocket on one trip and so far it is still taking pictures. The camera is always in my pocket to take GREAT pictures. It is really tore up now a days with scratches on the back viewing screen and front but it does work. Now a days I wouldn't take it out into the public but it is purely a caving camera. The camera has been through water, dropped, and the works. I definitely recommend it for the savy caver who wants to take a few pictures while in the cave.
