When Sabbath Drops his old Nikon F he yells "OH CRAP, MY FLOOR!"
Cameras are like kids and motorcycles: there not really yours until you drop them the first time...
Hahaha, good one.
I feel more relief. camera accidently dropped i took some pictures seems all warking fine and check all compartments but still not sure if i should check on something else. I removed and re installed the lense. It landed on the back side of the body from the desk. I hope it is good. took few photos and shutter works. What else should i consider?
This reminds me of the time I had just bought a brand new Pentax ZX-M. A couple days after I bought it I dropped it onto a parking lot pavement. It bounced around some, put a little dent in the top, but always worked fine.
I'd be careful of making gerenalizations. Particularly when you make two cracks about "back in the day". Back in the day technology may not have been as advanced as it is today, but products were well engineered, well built and craftsmen took pride in their work. Sabbath's comment "Oh crap, my floor" is well founded.
I'm from "back in the day" and I am as tough a sumbitch as you'd ever want to meet. More so now than "back in the day", albeit with several dents and scars. I doubt I stand alone.
