Lost another Canon D5 Mark II

posted on 22nd of august, 2009

Have you ever had the terrible experience of loosing 2 D5 Mark II's in 2 months time plus a Canon 16-35 mm f 2.8 lens? Well that happened to me this morning at the beach when my tripod dropped forward in the water. It feels like a dream but unfortunately it is true! Please hold thumbs for me that the insurance would not penalize me this time.

Thank for your understanding DT's

Ouch! Hope everything works out okay. Maybe you could try tying the tripod or camera to you somehow, when you are in tricky places. just loosely so you don't jiggle anything when taking a photo, but short enough to catch it before it hits the ground/water if something goes wrong.

And I felt bad about breaking the lens I didn't like, don't know how I'd feel about what you did!!! Good luck.

oooooooooh sooo bad.

Sorry about that.........It must have been the swells that scoop away the sand from underneath the legs. For taking photos that close to the water it might be useful to place your tripod on a wooden board (flat surface, something cheap).

I feel sick right now! Was that the last pic you took before the disaster? It's gorgeous.

thats horrible, I hope the insurance company works with you. Next time I would recommend making sure that you lock and sandbag your tripod when you are shooting.
