    I don't think the strap would have even saved it in this case haha

    Oh please. It's not me. :lol:

    The camera survives the bike hit just fine, and it looks like it survived the first bounce too.

    Bounce #2 is where it e x p l o d e s, and bounce #3 is when the flash fires. :cyclops:

    Had the camera been on a strap, that was around the <STRIKE>idiot's</STRIKE> photographer's neck, bounce #1 never would have happened, let alone the rest. :spank:

    Yep, that For Sale link in my siggy is in all my posts, but only till it sells. ;)

    I posted the same video in a Photojournalism & Sports Gallery thread and thought it appropo here in the beginners thread too, what with the strap issue potential and all. :lol:

    Lol..what a tard.. You're right, neck strap would have totally prevented that :) I don't use my camera without it for reasons like these...( Yes , I am *that* clumsy) haha.
