I'm rough on those little buggers. I go through a PnS every 8 months. Of the last 5, I've had Casio, Olympus, Nikon, Canon and Fuji and all have met their demise through impacts, water or dirt ingestion. The Casio was the toughest, with the Nikon second (submerged in a Boundary Waters lake, dropped on a rock to break the screen, but still took good pictures). The Fuji was the most fragile. A couple of farts and the lens wouldn't open. Now my little L22 has finally stopped doing anything, and I'm in the market for a new camera. The missus has the upper end covered, so I don't need a high dollar job, I'm looking for a point and shoot that is water/dust/freeze/impact proof that can accompany me on dual-sports, trail rides, canoe trips, backpack trips, ice riding/fishing all the outdoor activities I want pictures of but tend to destroy cameras while doing. Are the current crop of malfeasance resistant cameras worth the extra cost, or should I just get another $80 Nikon and try to take it easy?
