23 Reasons For

Canon Has Good Reviews for Its Digital Cameras

Canon is one of the better rated digital camera manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and users, and Canon also has good reviews for its waterproof cameras.

Fairly Large Display Diagonal

At 3.2 inches, the 1D C Body has a quite large display diagonal compared to most of the other comparable spec digital cameras that are a similar age to the 1D C Body. Cameras that were released more than two years ago have display diagonals of between 1.8" and 7.7", and the average display diagonal is 2.9".

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 3.2" screen cameras currently available including because of it's better review score, the Canon EOS 1D X[plb_1384067_price].

If this waterproof camera display diagonal is too small for you then you might want to consider the Sony DSC-TX30[plb_1621820_price] (3.3" and higher rated).
