Crash! Bang! Late Night Camera Horror Story!
Horror of horrors! I put my camera in my bag, left the bag on a bar stool in the room, and went to sleep. About 10 minutes later… KLANG! I turned on the light and my heart almost stopped when I realized the camera had jumped OUT of the bag. It had fallen on the metal stool foot, base first (fortunately)… Now sports two manly scrapes on the base… but the unit seems fine!
Oh, well. The irony is that if I’d put it away properly (i.e. closed the bag zip fully) or put it in a camera bag, it’d have been fine in a fall! So, I should listen to Angie’s advice and use the camera bag!
