GF1 Poor durability
Nov 23, 2009

My GF1 with also failed the durability test!

It was in a moderately padded leather and foam"case logic" camera bag, it fell from my hand at a height of 2 meters onto a wool rug. Guess what? It has a nasty dent on the left rear bottom corner, a few mm from the bottom corner of the LCD screen.

I'm not sure what type of metal the body is made of, but it sure is soft.

My previous camera was a Canon G9, that I dropped many times in the same bag, and there was never even a hint of damage.

I wish they had made it from a stronger material, or even a durable plastic.

I have since bought an ugly, bulky Lowepro bag to protect my delicate beauty.

Careful with you GF1 people!
