The blue PowerShot D30 Waterproof Digital Camera from Canon features a depth rating of 82' for beneath-the-surface exploration. Its rugged design is shock-proof to 6.5' and freeze-proof to 14°F. The camera has a 12.1MP, 1/2.3", High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor and DIGIC 4 image processor, which together produce high-resolution still images and 1080p full HD video via the dedicated movie button. The sensor and processor combine to form the Canon HS SYSTEM that helps provide excellent low-light performance. The D30 is also equipped with a 5x zoom lens featuring a 35mm equivalent focal length range of 28-140mm, covering wide-angle to telephoto perspectives.
The camera's 3.0" monitor offers a Sunlight LCD mode, which helps reduce glare for improved outdoor visibility. Smart AUTO intelligently selects the proper camera settings for given situations, based on 32 predefined shooting modes--leaving you free to focus on getting your shot while the camera does the thinking. Intelligent IS automatically chooses from six different modes to give you optimal image stabilization, helping to ensure your shots are free of blur. Additionally, a built-in GPS tracker records the location and date your images were captured.
12.1MP CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 4 Image Processor
- The 12.1MP, 1/2.3", High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor and DIGIC 4 image processor together produce high-resolution still images and 1080p full HD video via the dedicated movie button, and also allow for fast, accurate TTL autofocus. They combine to form the Canon HS SYSTEM, which helps provide superb performance in low-light conditions, producing images with minimal noise and maximum detail in highlight and shadow areas. The sensor incorporates advanced light reception technology that enhances sensitivity while the DIGIC 4 Image Processor actively reduces noise, expanding the usable ISO range to a high of 3200.

5x Zoom Lens
- Equipped with a 5x zoom lens for getting closer to your subject. The 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 28-140mm covers wide-angle to telephoto perspectives.
3.0" PureColor LCD Monitor
- Sunlight LCD mode helps reduce glare for improved outdoor visibility.
Waterproof, Shock-proof and Freeze-proof
- Unlock the secrets of the deep with the D30, which features a depth rating of 82'. Its durable construction also makes it shock-proof against drops from up to 6.5', and freeze-proof against temperatures as low as 14°F.
Video Recording Details
- In addition to shooting full HD 1080p video at 24 fps, the PowerShot D30 is also capable of capturing 720p HD video at 30 fps. You also have the option of recording in the Apple iFrame format, a computer-friendly standard that speeds up importing and editing of videos and is ideal for sharing via social networking sites and emailing. Super Slow Motion Movie lets you record your clips in high speed (approx. 240 fps), and then watch playback in slow motion.
- Intelligently selects the appropriate camera settings for given conditions, based on 32 predefined shooting situations--whether you're shooting stills or video. Automatically detects scenes by assessing various factors in both the background and the subject. Smart AUTO also includes Advanced Subject Detection, which allows the camera to detect and track non-human moving subjects like animals and vehicles. Focus on getting the shot you want and leave the thinking to the camera.
- In this mode, the camera automatically selects shooting settings for optimal quality and records up to 4 sec of video every time you capture a still image--without using the REC button. One day's worth of clips are then combined into a single video.
- The camera automatically and intelligently selects the best aperture/shutter speed combination based on the shooting conditions.
- This mode brings the subject into focus while beautifully blurring the background.
- Triggers the camera to automatically take a photo when people smile, wink or get into frame.
Handheld Night Scene and Low Light Mode
- With Handheld Night Scene, capture clear and steady pictures at night without the use of a tripod. Low Light mode improves image quality in a broad range of dimly lit situations.
- Play around with the Fisheye Effect option to achieve that classic wide-angle distortion without a fisheye lens.
- Use this option to give images a miniature look, emphasizing perspective by blurring the top and bottom of the shot.
Toy Camera Effect
- Enables you to simulate photos taken with toy or pinhole cameras, darkening the image at the edges to create a vignette effect.
- Choose from three single-tone effects: black-and-white, sepia and blue.
Super Vivid, Color Accent and Color Swap
- Super Vivid intensifies existing hues, saturating the scene with bright colors. Color Accent lets you choose to retain a single color in your image while other colors turn monochrome. The Color Swap mode allows you to replace a selected color with another that you specify, in order to create special effects.
- Combines several similar shades into one color, turning subtle gradations into eye-catching, scene-popping contrasts.
Underwater and Underwater Macro
- Underwater mode allows for the capture of images beneath the surface with reduced backscatter effect. Also available, Underwater Macro gives you detailed close-ups by capturing a magnified image of the subject.
- Easy-to-use guidelines simplify the shooting of aligned multiple frames that can later be combined to create super-wide panoramic photos, using bundled software.
More Shooting Modes
- In Snow mode, shoot clear snow scenes without darkened subjects or an unnatural bluish tint. Fireworks mode creates brilliant images of skyrocketing fireworks displays. Long Shutter is ideal for blurring moving subjects for artistic effect.
- Canon's optical image stabilization technology, known as Intelligent IS, automatically analyzes camera movement and chooses from six different modes for optimal image stabilization, so your images will be sharp and free of blur. For stills, the system automatically selects from Normal, Panning, Macro (Hybrid) and Tripod modes. When shooting video, the system automatically selects Dynamic, Powered, Macro or Tripod mode. Normal mode corrects for a wide range of camera movement when shooting stills. When Panning mode is selected, panning motion is detected so that IS does not interfere with desired camera movement. Macro (Hybrid) corrects for shift-type camera shake, which typically occurs in macro (close-up) shooting. Dynamic mode is effective for video shooting at wide-angle focal lengths, eliminating the unwanted shaking that typically occurs while walking. Powered mode compensates for hand movement when shooting video at the telephoto end of the zoom range, where camera shake is magnified. Finally, the Tripod mode ensures that the Image Stabilizer is stopped when tripod use is detected, because it is not needed and could interfere. With Intelligent IS, you can concentrate on image capture, letting the camera worry about counteracting shake.
- My colors off, vivid, neutral, sepia, black & white, positive film, lighter skin, darker skin, vivid blue, vivid green, vivid red and custom color are available. Custom Color enables adjustment of contrast, sharpness, saturation, red, green, blue and skin tone.
- Approx. 10-sec and 2-sec. delay options, as well as a custom mode offering the following: 0-15 sec in 1-sec increments; 20, 25 or 30 sec; selectable number of shots (1-10 in one-shot increments).
- Auto, flash on, flash off and slow sync modes available. Recycling time is about 10 sec. or less.
- A built-in GPS tracker records the location and date your images were captured. You can travel the world and let the camera automatically record the locations and local times of your stills and videos. The camera can also use the GPS unit to automatically set the exact time. You can maximize the usefulness of the GPS feature by using the special bundled Map Utility software, which employs Google Maps and makes it fun to share the memories of your world adventures. In addition to displaying all your image capture locations on a world map, the system can also track your route from image to image. You can even create and share custom maps and personal mini-travel guides. Keep in mind that GPS tracking does not work underwater, and that in certain countries and regions, the use of GPS may be restricted.
