Topic: How much abuse can a analog camera take - your experiences?
thought I'd start a topic about a rather unusual question that I kept asking myself for quite some time:
How much abuse can a simple (i. e. your average SLR equipped with nothing electronic except for the light meter), analog camera take?
With "abuse" I mean things that frequently mess up digital cameras, like...
- being splashed by sea water
- heat/coldness (like in the desert/arctic)
- being dropped
... or alike.
I started wondering about this because I plan to take one of my analog SLRs with me on future holidays, just as a backup for my DSLR or for those occasions where I think a DSLR could easily brake - like photographing ocean waves crashing onto a rocky beach with water splashing all over the place, looks absolutely spectacular, but is dangerous for cameras.
What do you think?
