    There are camera's that are pretty good weather sealed. My old Pentax for example, I could wash dirt of of it under running water. No problem. My new Panasonic gx7 is weather sealed, but I won't try it out under running water. But in rain there's no problem.

    I frequently carry a Samsung ST72 digital camera. It connects to my cell phone, and can instantly send a photo anywhere in the world. (Kind 'a scary when you stop 'n think about it!)

    Only $110.00 at Walmart with a gigantic 64GB, Samsung microSDXC, UHS-1, Extreme Speed Memory Card! No wide angle, no long distance either; but it takes very nice snapshots and good document and forensic close-ups, too!

    It isn't pro, but... It is currently sold around 200USD in most places. One great but usually forgotten feature: this camera charges with usb and can use same charger/cable as most phones. Smaller than my wallet :)

    I chose best looking video for the underwater part, sorry for cyrillic text. I have no idea what is written there...

    To warn you, the GX7 is *not* weather sealed... Panasonic don't claim any weather sealing for it at all, just the standard build quality.

    For cameras that are weather sealed, it is also well worth remembering that the sealing is very dependent on the lens on the front - put a standard non-sealed lens and you break the 'seal', so a sealed lens will be needed to complete the system (handily normally the kit lenses that match said cameras).

    I EDC (when I have a bag) my Nikon d7100 with 35mm prime. It's at about the limit when it comes to comfortable weight. Any bulkier lenses and it's just not worth the effort unless I'm going out specifically to take photos. At some point I'd like to switch to the Fuji X system, probably an XT1. Much prefer their lens lineup, drooling over their 56mm 1.2!

    By weather sealed I mean that the camera can take a bit of rain. Splashproof, called in english??

    I haven't been able to find any mention of it having any water resistance or being splash proof in any way...

    It has the typical build quality of modern electronics - it will probably survive more than most people expect, but it just takes a splash of water from the wrong direction or a drop of water hitting a weak point and it could get damaged.
    Generally I don't freak out about a little drizzle, but I do try to keep it sheltered and safe should it be raining properly.

    I don't always carry an umbrella, because I don't mind getting a little wet. But my camera and cell phone are another matter, so I always have on me raincoats for both. Many people before me do the same by carrying a rolled up or folded up clear zip lock bag for each.

    They don't advertise with it. Last week a part of the marketing devision of Panasonic visited our store. They told me all their lumix series are splash proof..

    I thought to pass this on to any iphone camera enthusiasts. With the recent release of iOS 8, Apple has finally allowed third party camera apps to gain full access to manual controls of the cameras, even the iphone 5 series, not just the 6 (I believe). Of course like on virtually all cell cameras the aperture is a fixed value but the time exposure and ISO are now manually adjustable as well as some other things, I believe.

    I don't think the native Apple controls allow this manual stuff but third party apps like ProCamera and others are starting to take advantage of this new inclusion. Others will probably follow suit.

    Mine is the Minox B (1958 to 1969) Complan lens. Have always thought of selling it, but never could pull the trigger.

    Agree, Ive had offers for as much as $300, but I'm sure that number will increase as years go on. LOL
