NOTE:

Go to the forums at http://www.mavican.nu and look under the boards there. There is a regular poster there named "TimD" who is a digicam repairman, and he works on Sony cameras. From what I understand, he's fast, good, and is MUCH cheaper than Sony is.

P.S. Check with your home owners or renter's insurance company about a "floater" policy on the camera. It will cover stuff like what you describe, with no deductable. usually only a couple of dollars a month.

Also... I really don't remember seeing Sony as advertising this as a "pocket" camera, but I HAVE seen some local stores advertise it that way. Due to this large sceen and it's ability to be easily damaged, I would think these folks would rethink advertising it as such. It really isn't a "pocket camera" per se - it's just a small and lightweight camera.

If you want a pocket camera that is very hard to break, really, the Sony U30/U40 models are closer to it. The tiny 1" screens are much harder to break and they're small enough that there's no large areas of surface to crack or break easily. Only 2MP though, but a safer "pocket alternative".
