Description & Features+

Your Partner in Adventure. Need a camera that can keep up with your adventurous lifestyle? The tough and sporty PowerShot D30 is the ideal choice for intrepid types who often find themselves outdoors, underwater or in extreme situations. Currently the camera with Canon's deepest waterproof performance, the PowerShot D30 dives to a full 82 feet for excellent scuba and snorkeling flexibility. Bikers, hikers, skiers and climbers can also confidently pack the PowerShot D30 to document the day's action: the camera is shockproof to 6.5 feet, and temperature resistant all the way from 14° to 104°F**. The camera's built-in GPS*** tracker records the location and time of all the images and videos you capture, and the new Sunlight LCD mode makes it easy to see the monitor even on bright, sunny days. Whether you're underwater or on dry land, images are beautifully clear, steady and loaded with detail and natural colour thanks to the Canon HS SYSTEM and Intelligent IS. When you're too busy to choose camera settings, Smart Auto does it for you by Automatically recognizing 32 predefined shooting situations, capturing the best quality with every shot.
