Canon has announced its latest "lifeproof" camera, the PowerShot D30. The camera boasts a temperature-resistance from 14 degrees to 104 degrees Fahrenheit and the ability to survive drops of up to 6.5 feet, but what makes the D30 particularly impressive is its 82-foot waterproof depth rating. The 12.1-megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS image senor and DIGIC 4 image processor are capable of recording Full 1080p HD video.

The D30 also features a 3.0-inch LCD Display that is designed to be bright and clear underwater, and adds a Sunlight LCD mode to improve visibility under bright conditions. The 5x optical zoom lens is pretty standard for a lifeproof-style camera, and Intelligent IS (Image Stabilization) will be helpful in reducing shake in videos and blurry stills. Smart AUTO automatically chooses between 32 predefined settings to ensure proper exposure for just about any shooting conditions. And, finally, the built-in GPS adds location to the standard date and time metadata recorded with each photo. Many photo editing and cataloging apps are able to use this metadata to map your pictures to the places you've been. And with a PowerShot D30, your adventures could take you to many, many places.
