The kit includes a soft camera bag and three different colored covers to spruce up your D10. These are truly accessories. These are of little use to me, but you might like them.
So why only four stars for something I find essential? Because of the high price. I think this kit is way overpriced and thus I knocked off a star. But I recommend it if you use your D10 as I do and can afford it.
IMPORTANT REVISION Oct 30, 2009. One of the straps, the one which you can adjust its length, is secured with a clip. THIS CLIP CAN SPONTANEOUSLY OPEN allowing the camera to fall. This happened to me twice whiie canoeing. Once,I held the camera over my head and this caused the strap to twist, openning the clip. Another time, I turned the camera to portrait mode and again twisted the strap and opened the clip. Each time the friction of the cord against my life preserver kept the camera from falling free. But it could easily have gone with the waves. DO NOT USE THIS STRAP unless you secure the clip permanently closed with duct tape. Alternatively, use the strap with no adjustment and no clip.
That said, I consider this a must have for those who plan to take their camera on snorkel and/or SCUBA trips. I have no doubt that it saved me from losing our camera. We used the straps on several snorkel trips, including a night outing. With the long strap I could stick the camera in my pocket, and even if it came out the strap which I clipped to a loop on my shorts kept it from floating away. The longest one can wrap around the shoulder of an adult male like a lanyard, so the camera is handy, but not in the way. Cleaned up easily and weathered our salt water excursions nicely. Salt can be very hard on gear.
The Neoprene case with Carabiners (clip) was very useful for our hikes. Keeping the camera handy, but not taking up valuable pocket space.
You could try to save some money and use the wrist strap that is included with the camera, but it does not really leave your hands free for swimming. You can let go of the camera, but you risk it swinging around and hitting you, or anything that your hands are near but shouldn't be touching (e.g. coral).
I had broken the "lug" that came on my Canon D10 camera. I found it impossible to replace. It is not an "accessory" but a "repair part" and only available through Canon authorized repair facilities. And I could not locate one through that channel either.
This accessory kit was not inexpensive but it provided LOTS of options. I am currently using the "long leash" which has two integral "lugs" to hang the camera around my neck when I kayak. That was worth the price of admission to me as I was afraid of losing the camera overboard.
One of the "leashes" has a clip that I can use to attach the camera directly to my PFD.life vest. And that includes a lug with a larger ring that will fit a snap on the leash so it doesn't all simply hang down. Also useful when snorkeling.
The padded pouch is nice, though I can not use it with the "long leash attached to the camera.
The three colored pieces pictured are optional body covers. I like the factory original blue, but I fitted the grey for a "custom look". LOL
