Question
Dear Prof Cleggsan

Is it possible to waterproof Hybrid Digital Camera?.

If yes, What will be the process?.

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
In the USA, and perhaps other countries, there are very stringent requirement on labeling a product "water proof". I don't know the current definitions but it must be tested and proven by an ethical laboratory that the product will show no leakage down to a specific number or tors or pressure rating.

However, the term "water resistant" may be used more freely for the product in question.

That being said, it is quite likely that water resistant design is very possible. The biggest concern is coverage protection around the lens, or course.
