Why Has it Scored 79?

our review analysis indicates that it has good user reviews but average expert reviews with an average overall rating of 74%, based on 139 reviews. This digital camera has received three awards including a "Recommended" award from PhotographyBlog.com plus one other site and an "Editor's Choice" award from Tomsguide.com.
It is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer digital cameras with better features are available. However this Canon digital camera has good reviews so it may still be worth considering.
The PowerShot D30 has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Ok optical zoom
1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels video resolution
Rugged camera - advanced waterproof performance
Superb underwater shots
Intelligent IS
GPS
Enjoy excellent visibility
Full HD movies
