You should watch the full segment about what all he does to the WG2. He freezes and cooks it....literally cooks it on an open fire, and continues to record. I have personally thrown mine in the washing machine.

The fire and crush tests were some seriously tough challenges and it's amazing it survived them as well as it did.

I think I know which camera I'll be getting when my back is in good enough shape for white water rafting again.

Wow... I hope my WG10 is built to the same standards of toughness But I'm not going to do the testing to find out! I will certainly be comfortable taking it out on the kayak after seeing this...
