    What the heck is wrong with a good old fashioned sledge hammer!

    Man these new fangle dangle cameras really are getting sissyfied.

    Watching that video, I think you could use the S1 AS the sledgehammer, and it would continue to function :)

    I'm just curious what happened after the fire burner.
    I just don't see the point of using fire to say 'Panasonic camera is built tough'.

    By the way, when I was doing audio, I found this 'shootout' video to be funny.

    Jump over 4:40 mark.

    I think Panasonic needs to do 'Truck Drive Over' and 'High drop' tests to claim really their camera is built tough.

    That's a good amount of water dumped on the camera. It seems that Panasonic has taken weather sealing quite seriously with the S1/S1R (so seriously that they decided to create a video about it!).

    And they chose just ice for cold temperature test.
    That's not actually cold enough. They should drop the camera into liquid nitrogen, and see what happens.:biggrin:

    I was hoping they would wait until the ice would melt so that the camera would be partially submerged.

    Haha, you can see that the rubber zoom ring was not particularly happy after the fire test. It's definitely looking quite wrinkled and the worse for wear (as expected).

    I'm curious to see how these cameras do in the new Imaging Resource scientific weather-sealing testing program.

    You did WHAT to our camera? IR weather testing version 1.0

    I don't get the point of these videos? That's what insurance is for! ;)

    Why not the tripping over and letting go test?

    If nothing else, it's good entertainment :) 

    And maybe, that's why the S1/R is a little more expensive than the NiCanony competition?

    Ever heard of Panasonic Tough Books? I think they might know a little bit about building a robust electronic device :) 

    Relax. Enjoy.
