    Angry how i destroyed a Nikon D7000 in a sulfur hotspring

    I was filming on a hot spring in utah, when a gust of wind pushed my two month old nikon d7000, that was mounted on a tripod, into the hot sulfur water. the objective (lens) broke off immediately so that the water and mud could enter the camera body. mud and water all over the mirror the sensor and so on. i destroyed 1250$ in 25 seconds and what i got in exchange was this unique footage with six weird stills after the impact ...

    I'm guessin' that you will forever remember that NOTHING ever falls UP!

    Bummer about the D7000. I don't think the footage was worth the price.

    BWTHDIK!

    Check your warranty. It might be covered............although I doubt it.

    Man...that is bad...

    You said "objective broke immediately" are you referring to the lens? Did the lens mount break? Do you have any pictures of what is left?

    eye-level: sorry for my english, of course it was the lens mount - the cheap AF-S DX 18-105 VR has a plastic mount. the camera is still in the states if i get it back i will post some pictures.

    Your english is fine sir and I am sorry for your misfortune...and thank you for teaching me something I didn't know concerning plastic mount (even F bayonet Nikon) lenses...makes one wonder about plastic bodies too...I hope this doesn't spoil your photography...

    I'm curious what made you purchase the D7000? Have you owned Nikon gear previously?

    Not sure if it is the same in Portugal but here our home owners insurance covers such a loss, maybe you have the same or something similar?
