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.
