I’m not sure that I would really want to test how tough is my camera, but some other dudes, at Digital Rev, tested the Canon 7D. Think of it as the “Jackass” movie but for cameras. For me it is much funnier since nobody gets hurt. They got their Canon 7D:

  • Run over, multiple times, by a truck.
  • Drop down, multiple times, down a set of stairs
  • Frozen solid in an ice block, including the inside
  • Shot at, multiple times
  • And finally, on fire

and the camera was still working, not very sharp but … still working.
