Canon PowerShot SX230 HS Digital Camera Review$349.99
The Canon SX230 HS is not particularly rugged, despite being a part of the so-called "travel zoom" category of cameras. As with all of these types of cameras the telescoping lens provides a vulnerability to dust and debris that can get in and destroy the lens. The front of the lens is covered by a plastic lens cover, but it easily slips away to reveal the glass elements underneath, meaning keeping the camera in a bag or pocket with keys or loose change could easily result in a damaged lens. Overall, we'd have to recommend storing the SX230 HS with some sort of bag and using caution when operating the camera around moisture or dust.
