Hi, the camera is about ten years old; it was my daughters so I don't know the purchase date.
The batteries are probably the same age as the camera; I have two and interchange them when one requires recharging.
No the camera has not been dropped.
The camera has only been operated in normal temperatures. It has never been wet apart from slight drizzle which was immediately wiped off; that was some years ago.
The camera has been operated in a sandy environment but, again , not recently.
