My mom dropped my two-week old DSC-W1 from about four feet on concrete. It survived the drop with a minor minor scratch ona corner. Nothing rattles inside. Phew! :shock:

Tie on the wrist strap!

I don't mind people using my W1, but I better see them use the wrist strap! Saved it twice so far.

For the LCD to be OK, what corner got hit?

The top-left corner on the back side.

At Disney World a family passing by asked me to take their picture as the park was closing. I took the picture alright, but as I was giving the camera back to her, she wobbled it in her hand and smashed it on the floor. There was a mad rush for people leaving the park so they disappeared. I'll never forget the look on her face though. It wasn't my fault, yet I felt bad for them. Since then, I'm very careful of having others use my more expensive camera's to take pictures of me and my fiancé.:|:?:

Oh my goodness! I would have felt so bad too. Poor lady. I hope it didn't break or that she's really rich and can pick another camera up easy.

Hehe, sorry to hear about the drop... but it's good to know that this camera is rugged enough to survive such a drop. BTW, is your camera made in Japan or China? should say so on the bottom where the hole for the tripod is.
