We've given the SL605 a grade of C.

Editor's Review

The SL605 is marketed as a "durable" camera, which dubious at best, a crock of you-know-what of at worst. True ruggedized or durable cameras are shockproof and should at least be able to survive a fall off of a table. The SL605 is simply a boring point-and-shoot with a metal plate on the front and some scratch-resistant coating. So let there be no confusion -- this is NOT a truly durable camera in the vein of the Casio G1, Olympus TOUGH series, or Panasonic TS1/TS2.  Image quality has so far proven to fall short of average too.

yay (Jen — 01/27/2011)
I really liked this camera... I have owned 3 different digital cameras and this was my favorite. The pictures come out great for me and the videos turn out great too. It recently got stolen but I plan on getting it again

A very good camera for the price. (Kristle — 01/17/2011)
I don't understand all the negative reviews. People forget you get what you pay for and you paid for a basic digital camera and that's exactly what this camera is. Don't expect it to do all the fancy stuff the much more expensive high tech models do. I find this camera is very good for me, it takes much better pictures than my older Samsung model. The pictures are clear, have bright colors and are very sharp. See for yourself

Don't Drop It! (Burton — 07/06/2010)
My daughter dropped this camera inside a case ... and the LCD broke. It is definitely not a durable camera. Pictures, were not bad for an inexpensive digital.
