The Canon PowerShot D30 is a tough compact camera designed for the great outdoors. Its clever design features a shell that is waterproof down to 25m, shockproof against drops of up to 2m, freeze-proof down to -10oC and dustproof. These characteristics ensure reliability is present during your adventures when you need it most.
A 12.1 Megapixel HS System combines with Canon’s Intelligent Image Stabilization (IS) to deliver beautiful image results, even in challenging low-light situations such as scuba-diving or relaxing with family and friends around a campfire. A 5x optical zoom allows the user to zoom-in on the action and frame the subject accordingly while an Underwater Mode and Custom White Balance ensure superb aquatic shots are achieved effortlessly.
A generous 3-inch PureColor II LCD screen with Sunlight LCD mode makes image reviewing and Full HD 1080p video recording an enjoyable experience. A Super Slow Motion Movie mode delivers additional creative freedom in the way action may be shot. For added point-and-shoot convenience, a Smart Auto mode contains 32 preset scenes when time is of the essence.
A built-in GPS provides location tagging as well as journey logging to ensure that a photographed location is never forgotten.
For your next big weekend party, holiday or action adventure, ensure that your treasured memories are reliably captured with the rugged Canon PowerShot D30 compact digital camera.
