Product information
Tough, reliable and ideal for all your outdoor activities, the Canon PowerShot D30 Tough Digital Camera delivers comprehensive digital photography on all occasions, including in deep water.

Rugged build

This neatly compact and stylish camera has a hardwearing body that can withstand shocks, freezing temperatures, dust and water. Constructed for the harshest of environments, the PowerShot D30 is perfect for your extreme adventures like snowboarding, scuba diving and much more. You can take this compact down to depths of 25 m, so you can really capture your deep-sea diving moments.

Great photos

With an unbeatable combination of a high-sensitivity 12.1 megapixel CMOS image sensor and a powerful DIGIC 4 processing unit, the Canon compact achieves brilliantly detailed photos with natural colours and rich tones.

You can shoot great low-light photography shots thanks to the camera's HS system. The HS system excels in difficult light and darker underwater environments, so your moments aren't compromised by poor conditions. There's also an Underwater mode and Custom White Balance to assist with adjusting the natural colours for a great-looking result, even in aquatic environments.

Optical excellence

Equipped with a 28 mm wide-angle lens with 5x optical zoom and Intelligent IS, the Canon D30 allows you to shoot a vast range of photos. You can zoom in closer to distant subjects without losing detail, capture broad frames of people or landscape and enjoy stunning extreme close-up photography with 1 cm macro shots, great for marine life.

The Intelligent Image Stabilisation keeps your photos and videos in sharp, crisp and blur-free detail, even when on the move, at full zoom or in poor light.

GPS functionality

You can tag location information to each photo with the GPS tagging feature. This handy logger keeps track of your journey, so you can relive your adventures in more detail. The Map Utility software pinpoints where each shot was snapped, so you know exactly where the photo was taken.

Smart Auto

Shoot fantastic photos without the effort of changing settings with the built-in Smart Auto function. This helpful addition works by automatically detecting the scene and selecting the best possible camera settings for 32 variables (21 in movies).

Full HD movies

A dedicated movie button instantly shoots Full HD movies so you can quickly capture that one-off moment. The optical zoom and Intelligent IS operates during recording and an HDMI port allows a swift connection to an HDTV for playback.

Enjoy special movie modes and capture the action with a creative approach, a Movie Digest mode records up to 4 seconds of action before each still, it then stitches the shots together into one fun movie clip. You can also slow down the action with the Super Slow Motion Movie.

You can frame and playback your moments in exceptional clarity on the bright 3” LCD screen. The high quality monitor ensures viewing clearness even in bright sunlight or underwater. The active display with tap control offers an intuitive and comfortable way of reviewing shots when wearing gloves.

Capture and track those thrilling adventures with the Canon PowerShot D30 Tough Digital Camera in blue.

Seven GB Point & shoot
I work on a nature reserve and the camera does exactly what I want. Robust and waterproof for both work on land and in the water. For a reasonably priced camera - can't fault it.
A slightly better zoom would nice.

Surrey GB Experienced amateur
I used the SD card from my previous camera that still had images on. Although you could review the images in the camera they disappeared when I inserted the card into the laptop, they were also not now present when the card was back in the camera. Needed to delete all the old images before I could get the Canon images to my laptop.
