What have you all lost/left behind at weddings over the years? So far the only things i've had go missing is one super clamp, an umbrella adapter, a couple sync cables, and an op/tech camera strap....i'm sure there are others who have lost more important stuff than me...lets hear it!

the only things i've lost are umbrellas (knock on wood). One wasn't "lost" so much as destroyed by kids who thought it would be fun to use as a toy sword.

I leave rear lens caps, and the plastic diffusers for Nikon flashes scattered across western PA. Nothing major thank goodness!

Left my memory card holder when I first started out. Luckily, I was able to recover it the day after. Whew.

Left two clamps at a hotel (was using them to hang a dress). Hotel was not able to find it the next day.

Left a lens cap somewhere at another wedding.

Yeah, but you've got a sherpa...

I've lost 2 (unshot) 4gb CF cards back when they were pretty expensive and somehow we left an sb-800 somewhere.

I have left a lens several times.

I have left a flash probably 4 or 5 times.

Usually, these things are being left in well trafficked parts of St Louis.

Each time, I have gotten them back.

One day, my luck will run out.

I left a memory case with several CF cards, and an umbrella adapter...never got 'em back
Since then (2 yrs ago) I have been so much more careful

5DII battery charger once, got it back the next day.
Nothing worse than waking up early on Sunday when you didn't have to.

Shooting in a hotel (Union Station, Nashville) earlier this year and a photog walks up to me frantic looking for her 50L her 'assistant left' on her shoot earlier that day. As far as I know she never found it.

I haven't lost anything noticeable (maybe a lens cap or gel?).
I have an assistant though, so that's part of their job, to keep track of my stuff. Part of the reason I hired someone was I was constantly leaving stuff all over the place. One of my first assistants once asked "where's that 50L you had?" and I'm like "I don't know... check those bushes over there". Sure enough, I left it in a bush by the ceremony. I've also left stuff sitting in the middle of the road, in church pews, under tables... So if it wasn't for my assistant, I would probably be missing all sorts of stuff.
