For the first 150 years people took their cameras to the beach, out in the rain, in battle and so on.

Most handled the weather just fine.

Yes and absolutely nothing has changed about cameras in 150 years. They certainly haven't gained electronics, integrated circuits, focus motors, zooms, or digital sensors. And it goes without saying that today's cameras and lenses are not built with any more precision or optical sensitivity than in the century past.
