Canon D30 Reviews Powered by TurnTo®

Reviewed by 2 customers


Excellent images capture, good video


I am a professional photographer, and I bought this to take with me on expeditions that include swimming. The camera is excellent for underwater and above water image capture. The camera only captures jpg images, and I hope Canon comes up with a RAW underwater camera in the future. I do not do much video, but the video function appears good. Since I am used to DSLR pro cameras, I have some difficulty with the menu when trying to acheive settings other than full auto, and the menu is not very intuitive for me. I had to download the full user's manual since the manual shipped with the camera was very basic and I could not figure out how to set the camera up without the detailed manual.


Great Camera!


My husband and I purchased this camera for our recent trip to the Cook Islands. We are loyal Canon customers and have used Canon products for many years. As expected, we were not disappointed by this camera. We used it for both underwater and for land photos where a DSLR wasn't practical. Our underwater photos & videos were crystal clear (so was the water!) and perfectly in focus. This is an all around great camera and would highly recommend it.

Shopper  is there a CMOS sensor and what is the mm of the lens ?
Shopper  Does the wrist band float?
PAUL B  No but you can purchase one that will float the camera. I've used the the strap that comes with the camera for many days of snorkeling and have never had a problem or felt that I would lose it.
