Waterproof and Underwater Cameras

When it comes to capturing stunning shots on challenging outdoor activities you need the best waterproof camera for the task – the rugged PowerShot D30. Alternatively you can add a waterproof case to any compatible Canon camera, for shooting underwater and providing protection from sand, sea and snow.

Dedicated rugged camera vs waterproof camera case

PowerShot D30 rugged camera

The PowerShot D30 is ideal for those who need the rugged performance of a tough sports camera on a regular basis. Durable enough for the most challenging outdoor activities, it’s waterproof down to 25 m, shockproof and freezeproof – ideal for every adventure from snowboarding and climbing to deep diving. It’s also ‘kid tough’ and can withstand the rough handling that children might subject it to on family adventures.

Add a waterproof camera case to a compatible camera

Add a waterproof camera case to any compatible Canon camera and you can shoot underwater down to 40 m - more than enough for snorkelling and scuba diving - with easy access to all the controls. They are also an excellent way to protect the camera from water, sand and snow - ideal for beaches and pools as well as winter sports activities.

Why Canon Underwater?
