Great Water Camera

EmmyJones, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I purchased the Canon D30 right before I went on vacation. I receieved it the next day which makes shopping at B&H a stress free experience. Although I only used it in 15' deep water, I feel confident this camera would be ideal for light scuba diving.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact

Great for SCUBA

Tom J, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: We took this camera to the Cayman Islands. We took it on numerous dives on all three islands there. If you set the white balance on the sand where you want to get the shot, the photos are fantastic. We took the camera to 80 feet deep. The buttons are very easy to see and use while underwater. The underwater macro mode was best all of the time in the water. The one downside is that if you take a lot of video, then the batteries don't last two dives.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact

Nice camera

Yearbook, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I bought this to replace my D10, which died on the beach in FLorida after about 5 years of use. I thought the D10 was the best point and shot I have owned. I decided to go with the D30 because the D10 version I had isn't available any more and I liked the idea of the GPS and greater depth ability of the D30.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Battery Life, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Needs Sunset Exposure Mod

A DIVER'S DREAM

Ramon GT, Amazon
12 June 2014
  • Summary: 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!

Photos OK, but very disappointed in video quality

Robert P. Wederich Jr, Amazon
11 June 2014
  • Summary: I've been doing underwater photography and cinematography since the 70's, and was hoping to find a small decent underwater camera that does not need a housing, that would produce quality photos and videos. I have some Go Pros, but while they shoot full HD at 60 fps, they do not yet have image stabilization (IS). I was hoping the Canon D30 would prove a nice solution for steady hand-held u/w video while diving.
