    Re: how i destroyed a Nikon D7000 in a sulfur hotspring

    it was the hard way how i learned it - all my other lenses have a metal mount. of course they are heavier... i had a nikon d90 before and i really liked it so when i needed more resolution for a specific project i decided to go for the d7000. it's quite similar. it's a good camera especially for that price. if you really want to get the best out of it you need also very god lenses and a proper tripod etc - but this applies to all cameras..

    the home owners insurance that i have does just cover costs when i destroy accidentally the goods of others. in my case no one wants to pay and i had to replace the camera since i was in the middle of the project. i did not recover yet from the unexpected costs...

    the worst thing is the sound that it makes when it clashes into the water and the mud - this got stuck in my head and is still giving me the creeps...

    oh man - I hate it when an awful sound like that gets stuck in your head.

    I'm curious what kind of tripod you were using? Was it a light weight travel one?

    I'm curious......does that tripod have a hook on the bottom of the column? Hang something heavy on it, such as your camera bag, or better yet, some kind of lead weight bag, to keep it stable and "glued" to the ground, so to speak. All joking aside.......sorry to hear about your cameras demise.

    I felt the same watching the video. I can't imagine how you must have felt. I'm so sorry this happened to you. I get a bit paranoid about my camera and tend to have the neck strap around my neck or my wrist even when it is mounted on a tripod. How awful that nobody wants to pay out for you

    I feel your pain. I felt the same way when I woke up in the middle of the night and saw my camera bag floating in water. Nothing hits you in the gut quite like watching one of your most prized possessions being ruined in front of your eyes.

    You gotta look at the bright side. I know people that have been to Harvard and have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to learn what Netzkarl has learned for less than two thousand dollars. And trust me. THIS lesson has been LEARNED!
