For the Aspiring Indiana Jones DAD
CANON PowerShot D30 (RRP: $399)
Scaling mountains, exploring ruins or taking nose-dives off a cliff into the ocean – if this describes anything like what your dad does on his holiday itinerary, there’s no better choice than this camera to document his adventures.
The PowerShot D30 is the world’s deepest underwater camera, and is able to handle deep plunges to a depth of up to a whopping 25 metres without any underwater housing or protective casing. Accidental knocks or drops? No sweat. The PowerShot D30 can withstand drops of up to 2 metres, which means it will even survive a drop from head level. The New Sunlight mode allows for easy viewing of the 3-inch LCD monitor even against the sun, so there won’t be a need to cup the screen or to strain your eyes to view the screen. Finally, the 32-scene Smart Auto mode automatically detects scenes and applies the appropriate algorithms and/or subject-tracking to produce true-to-the-eye colours in the photos. To top it off, you can even geotag the location of where your photos were taken via the in-built GPS function, down to the altitude and latitude!
