Build quality is good, although because of its low weight the camera does
feel deceptively delicate. The case appears to be ABS plastic, but its
shape gives it an inherent strength. Our review model had already been
used by another journalist who had clearly not treated it kindly, leaving
several scratches on the case, but despite this rough treatment it still
functioned perfectly well. Fortunately the large 2in flip-and-twist LCD
monitor can be fully rotated and folded back against the camera body when
not in use, protecting the surface of the screen.
