I tend to use cameras out and about, and they get a lot of exposure to the elements, such as wind rain, dirt dust and so on, my curent compact after survivng getting rained on, dropped onto various surfaces, and a few other things that it wasnt designed to withstand has finaly met its match - dust behind the lens, in each and every photo there is now a a few blobs, i can see the dust/marks inside the lens but i am unable to get to it as the lens assembly is both hard to get to, and without dis assmebling it any further it looks equaly hard to re-assemble, if not impossible.
so with all that, can any one recomend a dust proof/water proof compact camera that doesnt cost alot ( £150 ish ) and soent look like a childs toy ?
I have a sony cybershot DSC-TX10 that I bought to trek with after beating up several compacts in less than a year. Dust proof, water proof, drop proof - all with limits of course. Can say personally it has survived rainy days, a dip or two in the river, dropped from my hand to cement pathway (has a little mark on the corner it hit on from that), dropped about 15 feet down a cliff (no bounces on that trip) and lots of dust blowing.
Have had it at least 2 years and love it. Not sure about the exchange of the pound to US dollar, but think it should be in the range.
(we still have not replaced her dead one).
