Re: Cannon Powershot D30 -- Been waiting 25 Years for this!!!

In diving, 33 ft would be 1 additional atmosphere of pressure. At sea level you are at 1 atmosphere, at 33 feet 2 atmosphere. If the D30 can do 82 ft that would be a great diving vacation camera.

I have been diving and taking photos for 20+ years and rarely  need to go deeper than 70 feet, unless looking for some thing specific. I think the early waterproof cameras were for snorkeling, but the D30 shows promise as a dive camera.

If Nikon ,with their Nikonos rangefinder camera could do 50 meters of depth, 40 years ago, certainly the technology was there to copy.
