Need urgent reply as I'm going to buy in 2 hours' time.

http://www.dpreview.com/articles/2491269399/2014-waterproof-camera-roundup
refer to the above & I'm considering to get Canon D30.

I've had water resistant watches that when I put them into only 1m water, water
seeps in.

Q1:
What's the difference between water proof & water resistant?  

Q2:
If I go diving with those water proof cameras above (within the specified depths),
will they last?  Esp in sea/salt water, will they go rusty ?  Or it's only meant for
fresh water?

Q3:
Do I need to get extra 'water proof casing' or just those cameras alone can
withstand the sea water depths specified?

Q4:
if I go deeper than the specified depths, will the manufacturer be able to
detect them & void the warranties (maybe say I exceed by 3m) ?

Q5:
Any idea what's the warranty period for the D30?

Q6:
Does this digital Powershot has the other Canon Powershot features
(as the word 'PowerShot' is there though I don't know what Canon
 infers by the term 'Powershot' )
