Our opinion:

Having owned the grandfather of this camera, the D10, for the past 6 years or so, the arrival of the new D30 is really exciting. The reason being: it's capable of most leisurely scuba diving depth without the need of an extra housing.

This is actually a big deal because thus far, tough cameras could only go down to 10m at best - and most dives are around the 20m mark. The scuba camera housings normally cost around ?200 on their own, so this is a considerable saving. Plus, it solves the entire fogging up issue that most underwater housings are prone to (so annoying when it happens).

The D30 has a brilliant Auto mode, which copes with adverse lighting conditions with ease. In particular, backlit people are exposed perfectly for their faces, rather than captured as silhuettes. Compared to it's predecessors, it now has full HD movies and a GPS (don't worry, it's the hardware type, rather than the one which you have to connect to your smartphone).

This is a very useful travel camera - one which will have many scuba divers excited. *****
Manufacturer's Description
"Rugged camera - advanced waterproof performance

This compact and tough digital camera offers leading waterproof performance that lets you shoot underwater down to 25 m. Constructed for harsh conditions, the PowerShot D30 is also shockproof to drops from up to 2 m, freezeproof for using it in temperatures as low as -10 ?C and is fully protected from dust - so it's ideal for the most extreme outdoor activities, from snowboarding to SCUBA diving. It's also ?childproof' and can withstand the rough handling that children might subject it to on family adventures.
Superb underwater shots

Capture great shots under any light with HS System - an exclusive combination of a high-sensitivity 12.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor and a powerful DIGIC 4 processor. HS System excels in low light - typical of underwater environments - while Underwater mode and Custom White Balance allow you to quickly adjust to the natural colours at depth, so it's easier to capture the real aquatic atmosphere. Use Underwater Macro for sharp, clear close ups of marine life.
28mm, 5x optical zoom; Intelligent IS

Shoot panoramic landscapes and great group shots with 28mm wide-angle and use the 5x optical zoom to get closer. Intelligent IS keeps photos and videos sharp and detailed even on the move, at full zoom or in low light, automatically adjusting the optical Image Stabilizer to the scene from 7 modes.

GPS tags the location of your photos and videos while the Logger function keeps track of your journey. Use the Map Utility software to pinpoint shooting locations and to share them with friends.
7.5 cm (3.0"") PureColor II LCD with Sunlight mode

Enjoy excellent visibility whether you're in bright sunshine or underwater using the large 460k dot LCD screen. For enhanced clarity in very bright conditions, Sunlight Mode activates a stronger LED backlight for maximum brightness. Active display with Tap Control offers comfortable reviewing of images even when wearing gloves.
Full HD movies

Use the movie button to instantly record Full HD (1080p) movies with optical zoom, while Intelligent IS keeps footage steady. Enjoy high quality playback on an HDTV via the HDMI port.
Smart Auto (32 scenes)

Effortlessly shoot great photos or movies with Smart Auto, which detects the scene and selects optimal settings from 32 variables (21 in movies).
Special movie modes

Enjoy more ways to capture the action. Movie Digest records up to 4-seconds of action before each still shot, joining the day's clips into a bonus HD movie. Slow down fast movement with Super Slow Motion Movie.
