26 Reasons For

Good Brand

We checked 19,570 expert and user reviews for Canon cameras and found that on average Canon has good reviews. We also found that Canon has good reviews specifically within its waterproof cameras range.

Very Large Screen Size

At 3.2 inches, the EOS 1DC has a very large screen size compared to most of the other waterproof cameras that have been available for a similar time to the EOS 1DC. The smallest screen size of digital cameras of this type and age is 1.8", the largest is 3.3", and the average screen size is 2.8".

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3.2" screen digital cameras currently available including the EOS 5D Mark III (£1,499.99), or the EOS 1D X (£2,999.99) both from Canon which has better reviews.
