You want pro conditions? My Pentax K10D has gone through trekking in the mountains and rapids of Kinanbalu, survived a 8 hour trek in the rain with me, and survived really well even even in the extremely wet rain forest of Taman Negara.

And it's still working fine.

Gregory :

I must say that it's very cool of you still sticking around after all the jokes . This site is very "funny" place .

On the other hand they do make a camera which does okay after 5 ft drop : The M1 Abrams MBT !

It will take photos up to 3K meters and the best thing is you can shoot them sky high if they don't like your photos

Sorry , I am weak tonight ,can't help it

This is the dumbest thread I have ever read and would be a waste of my time to read past the third thread.

I keep my camera with me by my side whenever i go out. Which is most of the time. You never know when the magic moment will hit..

I was out at a tattoo studio, camera slipped off my shoulder and hit the ground at a specific angle. It's a simple flaw. Some rubber added to certain points on the body would prevent this from happening in the future. Let's hope the next camera fixes this issue
It's a simple flaw; you’re clumsy...

FWIW; Pentax doesn't handle hammers to good either...

Now I read your first sentence and thought that perhaps you failed to have a sense of humour but you came across in the end! Hammers! Hahahahahaha!

Some of the threads here are just for the sake of entertainment, we all need a laugh now and again.

Might I suggest you place the camera somewhere else, like around your neck. Then it should stay with you, unless your head falls off.
Damn, Now I have coffee all over my keyboard! That was funny!!!

Admit you screwed up, or had a bit of bad luck - whatever! - but don't blame the manufacturer because the product did not do something it was never intended to do.
Nuff said. Not a camera on the market built to take a hard drop. I saw a 5D with the lens mount snapped off from a 3 foot drop on a tile floor. Wasn't worth the repair costs. As Jeff said, use the strap and keep your head on!

Or if you don't mind 'fuzzy' shots, you could try this:

sure, this will keep the camera warm, (like you I live in the great white north) and if you make the whole camera body out of this it can;t possibly crack, but I am not so sure it will keep the lens alligned with the focal plane

In 6 years of shooting, I've never dropped my camera. I've taken it to 10,000 feet, on airplanes, through forests, on beaches, sidelines of hockey rinks, football games, you name it. Be more careful.

Hey no problem..hope the product is what you need. Most people here just like to have fun and enjoy a thread like this once in a while.

I am a clutz with cellular phones and understand the dropping technique when you least expect it. With my cameras though, I have a death grip holding on to them because one drop could do more than cosmetic damage. If I could get camera armor for my older Pentax I would have bought it.

Somehow, I am not sure you could go many places with an M1A1. Then again, who's going to argue with you?

I'm sure homeland security would have a fit, let alone the guys who try to x-ray the thing at an airport

I dropped mine the other day and guess what - the impact fixed my leaning viewfinder problem. Stranger than fiction but absolutely true.
