DPReview Tested June 2014
The Canon PowerShot D30 is a perfectly functional rugged camera that takes good quality photos - especially underwater.
Jeff Keller Jeff Keller

Conclusion

The PowerShot D30 isn't the most feature-packed rugged camera, with basic GPS functionality, dated movie mode and no Wi-Fi. Importantly though, it takes good photos in nearly all situations, including underwater.

Reasons to buy

  • Good underwater white balance and image quality
  • Class-leading maximum depth
  • Solid autofocus performance
  • Long lens for its class

Things to consider

  • Limited GPS functionality
  • LCD has bluish cast, low contrast
  • Out-of-date video specs
  • No built-in Wi-Fi

Suggested for

Shooters who want a good everyday camera that performs well underwater, and don't mind the lack of Wi-Fi.

Not suggested for

Low light shooters, those seeking more data than location alone, social network photo sharers

The Ideal Traveling Companion

GPS Technology

The PowerShot D30 digital camera is equipped with Global Positioning System (GPS)* technology. 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 that makes it fun to share the memories of your world adventures. In addition to displaying all your photos' locations on a world map, the camera's GPS system can also track your route from photo to photo – a great way to visualize each trip! You can also create and share custom maps and personal mini-travel guides with friends and family members.

* In certain countries and regions, the use of GPS may be restricted. Therefore, be sure to use GPS in accordance with the laws and regulations of your country or region. Be particularly careful when traveling outside your home country. As a signal is received from GPS satellites, take sufficient measures when using in locations where the use of electronics is regulated. GPS tracking does not work underwater.

The Map Utility software uses Google Maps for displaying maps.

Reduced Glare for Shooting Convenience

Sunlight LCD mode

The PowerShot D30 is the perfect companion even in the brightest sunlight. The camera has been equipped with a new Sunlight LCD mode that reduces glare, making the LCD monitor easy to see even in bright light. This enhanced visibility not only makes framing and shooting easier, but also makes it easy to review what you've captured and show it to others.

A Smarter Camera Means Better Photos and Videos

Smart AUTO

Sophisticated Canon technology that makes getting that great shot as simple as pressing the shutter button, Smart AUTO automatically detects scenes by assessing various factors in both the background and the subject. On the PowerShot D30, detected scenes are analyzed using 32 predefined shooting situations. The camera then makes optimal settings to ensure the best possible image capture, whether you're shooting stills or video. Smart AUTO also includes Advanced Subject Detection, which allows the camera to detect and track non-human moving subjects like animals and vehicles. With Smart AUTO, all you have to do is frame your shot and capture away.

Shooting Modes
Smart AUTO The camera automatically selects the best shooting settings for optimal quality based on subjects and environmental factors to provide point-and-shoot simplicity.
Program The camera automatically and intelligently selects the aperture/shutter speed combination based on the shooting conditions.
Movie Digest Automatically selects shooting settings for optimal quality and records a video clip every time you capture a still image. One day's worth of clips are then combined into a single video.
Portrait Brings the subject into focus while beautifully blurring the background.
Smart Shutter The camera automatically takes the photo when people smile, wink, or get into frame.
Handheld Night Scene Take clear and steady pictures at night without the use of a tripod.
Low Light For high quality image capture in an amazing range of dimly lit situations.
Fisheye Effect Now you can get the fisheye effect – a classic photographic distortion – without a fisheye lens.
Miniature Effect Give images a miniature look with an effect that emphasizes perspective by blurring the top and bottom of the image.
Toy Camera Effect Simulates photos taken with "toy" or pinhole cameras, darkening the image at the edges to create a vignette effect.
Monochrome Choose from three single-tone effects: Black-and-White, Sepia, or Blue.
Super Vivid Super Vivid intensifies existing hues, saturating the scene with bright colors.
Poster Effect Poster Effect combines several similar shades into one color, turning subtle gradations into eye-catching, scene-popping contrasts.
Color Accent Choose to retain a single color in your image while other colors turn monochrome.
Color Swap Select a color and replace it with a color you specify for special effects.
Underwater Capture underwater images with reduced backscatter effect.
Underwater Macro Enables close-ups by capturing a magnified image of the subject.
Snow Shoot clear snow scenes without darkened subjects or an unnatural bluish tint.
Fireworks Create brilliant images of skyrocketing fireworks.
Long Shutter Use to blur moving subjects for artistic effect, ideal for urban night photography.
Stitch Assist Easy-to-use guidelines simplify the shooting of aligned multiple frames that can later be combined (using bundled software) to create panoramic photos.
Movie Record video; unwanted scenes can be deleted in playback mode.
iFrame Movie The Apple® movie format, iFrame, makes it easier and quicker to import and upload videos while retaining high image quality.
Super Slow Motion Movie Record your clips in high speed (approx. 240 fps), and then watch your videos in slow motion.

Actual results may vary from examples shown above.
Final image may vary depending on picture composition.

A Steady Image is a Beautiful Image

Intelligent IS

The innovative Canon Optical Image Stabilization technology, Intelligent IS, analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation. For stills, the system automatically selects among Normal, Panning, Macro (Hybrid) and Tripod modes. When shooting video, the system automatically selects among Dynamic, Powered, Macro and Tripod modes. With Intelligent IS, you can concentrate on image capture, letting the camera make the most effective IS settings to help capture the steadiest possible image.

Normal Corrects for a wide range of camera movement when shooting stills.
Panning 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 Effective for video shooting at wide-angle focal lengths, eliminating the unwanted shaking that typically occurs while walking.
Powered Compensates for hand movement when shooting video at the telephoto end of the zoom range, where camera shake is magnified.
Tripod When tripod use is detected, the Image Stabilizer is stopped because it is not needed.

Received my Canon D30 on 04/25/2014. These will be my impressions after about 3 months of weekend use. I have taken the camera underwater on many occasions, and had the camera underwater for several hours in saltwater while snorkeling and on various trips to the beach. No issues. The seals seem to perform very well. Just remember to rinse the camera off in fresh water after being in salt water. If you forget to do so, the buttons will have a "Crusty" feel at your next use.

I started a Flickr Group for photos taken with this camera- Go to Flickr --> Groups --> Search Groups --> Canon PowerShot D30. (Amazon will not allow me to post the link??) I posted some photos of the camera itself, as well as a demonstration of the "Sunlight LCD Mode" Scroll all the way to the bottom of the group to see these.

Impression is 4-Star.

It is impossible to compare this camera to a DSLR/SLT, so I will evaluate it on what it is- a point and shoot that you can take into the water, and can take a little punishment.

The build quality is very good, and the camera feels solid in my hand. The body is made of a nice composite material, and the rubber grips seem tacky enough to hold on to in cold/wet conditions.

The buttons are well positioned, and the menus are intuitive.

The power up is lightning fast. It takes about one second from pushing the power button until you can take a shot.

"Turnaround" time between shots is rather slow, in my opinion, however, I improved this slightly by turning OFF the preview function.

High ISO performance is typical of a point and shoot with a lot of noise.

Shooting underwater is a ton of fun.

This camera took great pictures and video. It was fast and had a nice large viewer that worked well in daylight and underwater. We really liked this camera. But, after a couple of days of relatively light use in pools and the ocean, it leaked and broke. Water got in through the USB/HDMI hatch and was visible behind the lens. The camera was never deeper than 5 feet in the water and the USB/HDMI hatch wasn't ajar and it wasn't opened underwater. After the camera dried out, it just displayed an error when you try to power it up "Lens error..."

Canon offered to repair it (but not replace it). However, as always, Amazon was great about it and refunded our money since we were within the return window.

I'm hopeful, we just had a lemon since I liked everything else about the D30 and would consider buying it again. But, I'm going to keep an eye on these comments for the next couple of months to see if others have similar issues before hitting the "Add to Cart" button.

I took this little baby for some rides down to the coral reef and it exceeded my expectations: AWESOME.

PROS:
1.- 82 feet deep (...and maybe more) without bulky cases? Cool!
2.- Made for diving: Compact, good grip, easy one-hand operation even with gloves, dedicated video button, etc. A diver's dream.
3.- The subaquatic mode (software filter) really WORKS! Kudos Canon, colours pop out as if the camera had a strobe attached; most of my underwater pictures were GREAT without any tweaks, just point that turtle and shoot.
4.- Long battery life. I charged mine after six dives just to make sure, but it may have lasted longer.
5.- Great underwater video too: full HD with autofocus.

CONS:
1.- Bigger than my previous cameras.
I had a thin and small Sony TX30 but it died at 90 ft (OK, it was rated for 33 ft, my fault). Anyway all my buddies have cameras WITH cases, they all look like huge daguerrotypes when compared to this Canon D30 :p so I can't complaint.
I've also used a GoPro, it was smaller too, but it had no LCD screen, battery lasted 1 or 2 dives only, and photos were not good at all. Anyway this camera makes better video IMO than the GoPro, down there in the deep.

I guess all the 1 or 2 star reviews are from non-divers expecting DSLR quality in dry land. If you dive look no further: this little wet bottom camera is for you. The best diver's camera for ~$300.

I own the predecessor to the Canon D30; the D20. I love it! Good image quality (IQ) for a waterproof camera (Sorry, IQ really is relative as non-waterproof point-and-shoot (PNS) cameras at this price point have far better IQ). My D20 handles continuous bouncing in my front pocket while trail running with no problems yet after about 6 months of solid use. 50 to 100+ miles of bouncing in my front pocket or backpack so far. I love the Color Swap effect mode as well. I have not submerged it yet but it has been rained on many times without incident.

So this brings me to the D30. I cannot find anything different with it other than the case (and modest button layout change) and depth rating from the D20. They both have in common:

12.1MP 1/2.3" CMOS sensor
DIGIC 4 image processor
5.0mm-25.0mm F3.9-4.8 lens
ISO 100-3200
3.0" 461,000 pixel screen
Flash range 1 to 11 feet
Same Scene Modes
Shutter Range 15sec-1/1600sec
1.9fps maximum frame advance
NB-6L battery
And on and on...

I honestly believe that the D30 is the same camera as the D20 in a different case. And I have to admit, I can't stand the D20's case as it's got a very awkward shape and it is very slippery. I literally smeared Shoe Goo all over the front and sides of it for grip. My girlfriend HATES the way it looks now but has to admit it solved the slip problem. The D30 addresses the slipperiness of the D20 with an actual finger grip on the front. Plus the D30 has a totally different depth rating of 82 feet, which is 49 feet deeper than the D20's 33 feet. This is something that really interests me as I had a Lumix TS3 fatally leak at literally under 8 INCHES submersion shooting video in a koi pond while being rated for 40 feet.
