It's hard to say without knowing the specific model of camera that you are considering taking with you on your run, but I think that for the most part any compact, point and shoot camera should be able to take that kind of repeated impact. @Chris H had a good suggestion that I'll expand on a little bit: When you put the camera in your backpack, wrap it up ...

If it's bumping around you've packed it wrong, but it's highly unlikely to suffer. For running with a backpack even more than for hiking, your load should be stable. This means the bag shouldn't be too big and should be full or strapped up tight. If you're planning to run, then stop and shoot for a few minutes, you might find yourself wanting an extra ...

We use a blimp on movie sets for sound deadening loud cameras like Nikon. Maybe you could put your gear into a padded fibreglass shell for shock protection. This guy made his out of a Pelikan™ case. http://blog.blairbunting.com/guest-post-diy-sound-blimp-project/ Fatboy also has a solution cheaper than replacing your gear. ...

Remember that a true weather sealing is stamped with a certification grade like IP 67. Unless you have this kind of statement, the "weather sealing" remains more or less a marketing argument saying "we have added some more sealing gaskets but you still use it under the rain at your own risks", because it does not say how much it is sealed. It gives you no ...

Are "weather sealed" gear tested for how good their "weather sealing" is? AFAIK, cameras aren't tested and rated against some independent standard -- if they were, manufacturers would certainly advertise that fact. Equipment is usually described as being weather sealed if it is, and weather sealing just isn't mentioned if it's not. Equipment reviews ...

BTW, I dunno if you are considering plastic bags in addition to or in lieu of weatherproofing. Using them often produces condensation (and of course occasional leaks) so once again the weatherproofing can come in handy. Zoom lenses and some lens when focusing also draw in or expel air when moving, so watch out for that when using your equipment in messy ...

I believe the answer to be simple. Nikon does not warranty their product if it is used in the rain. I have a few Nikon DSLRs and I love them. But, for rainy conditions, I purchased a Pentax K-50 touted by Pentax to be weather proof. I also have two weather resistant (WR) Pentax Lenses. Don't sell Pentax short. Look at the features. I have used the Pentax ...
