Sony’s packaging their new Sony Walkman within a bottled water just to elaborately claims that it’s waterproof and you can easily grab it through vendo machines in New Zealand. If we are talking about solid waterproof rating as a selling point, Canon has just unveiled its latest Powershot D30 a successor of D20 that ultimately packs the waterproof rating from 33 feet to 82 feet —-something scuba divers would love to hang on their suits.
The new Powershot D30 features a 2.1-megapixel CMOS sensor paired with a DIGIC 5 processor that’s capable of 1080/30p video. However, looking at the aperture of f/3.9-4.8 at 28-140mm is a bit slow for underwater shooting though you can easily adjust light sensitivity through its ISO settings. There’s also a 3-inch 461k-dot LCD for you to frame your shots that is capable of adjusting through brighter conditions through its sunlight mode.
Furthermore, the D30 is also made shockproof and cold-resistant to add extra-ruggedness plus it includes GPS on its repertoire, however, there’s no WiFi connectivity.
The rugged D30 will be available by May 9th with suggested retail price of $330. You can pre-order now the Canon D30 at Amazon.com
