    I can see that happening, in more ways than just weddings.
    I myself have tripped on "stuff" more than once. Lucky for me my balance is still with me, although I know the day is coming when I go down. I will also mention that I am conscious of my surroundings, yet once in a while I still will miss my step.
    Focusing can be a *****...:mrgreen:

    The second camera was under water for quite some time until he could lift it out. Time for the water to find its ways inside... not good. So very NOT good. Ouch!

    And the embarrassment of getting a video put out on this on YouTube... ! For us to laugh... :(

    Yeah that hyper expensive lens was too much time under water... Hope it's a real good one as it's properly sealed. As for the camera... ouch :S
