Canon Powershot D30 review

 

Canon makes its latest tough compact a waterproof wonder

Good ergonomics ; Class-leading waterproofing ; Acceptable image quality Bright, clear screen

Noise at higher sensitivities ; Underexposes high-contrast scenes ; Narrow aperture lens ; No crushproof rating ; No Wi-Fi or panorama mode

The D30 excels underwater and its new external design makes it one of the most ergonomic tough cameras on the market. However, the D30's direct rivals can go deeper. Image quality isn't bad compared to rival cameras, but a tendency to underexpose can...

Although it's still a new toy, I have no reservations in applauding Canon for the D30. Having spent a fortnight in Italy recently I took some 500 shots on the D30, not one on the EOS 3, which I also took with me! The lure of the innovative gadget?...

Canon PowerShot D30

 

The Canon PowerShot D30 can go deep underwater, but feels pretty dated in terms of image quality and performance.

Waterproof to 82 feet. Sharp 5x zoom lens. Slow motion video mode. GPS.

Images on the noisy side. Slow shot to shot time. 1080p video limited to 24fps. No Wi-Fi.

Canon PowerShot D30 Review

 

The Canon PowerShot D30 is the newest digital compact camera in Canon's underwater line-up. Now waterproof to an impressive 25m and drop resistant to 2m, the built-in GPS system will let you know exactly where you were so clumsy. Add to that a 12.1...

Canon have really pushed the boundaries on their tough cameras by increasing the integrity of the chassis. While the 2m drop is already matched in many tough cameras – and even bettered – the PowerShot D30 is unsurpassed in the depth that you can swim...
