Although a penny will probably take quite a bit longer than a brick to hit the ground from 3000 ft due to wind profile, that mounting plate would make very little difference. I would guess it would only be a few per cent slower than a brick. Rebels are the highest vfm of all Canon's products IMO. I usually take one to work alongside my 1 series or 5D's.

I guess that's what we call a descent photo.

Should have linked it 'NSFW" as this is defintely a dirty picture.

Impressive. But what was lucky was that it didn't land on someone's head. Because then we'd be talking about how much time in jail the instructor would have to do, instead of the benefits of plastic cameras on home-made mounting plates.

"I don't think the relative mass makes any difference at all.

O.K. You stand under the brick and I'll stand under the penny.

This is true but ONLY in a vacuum. Wind resisitence has a very dramatic effect...hense why a feather falls so slowly compared to a brick. Also, relative mass (regardless of wind resistance) definately has an effect on impact...I'd rather be hit with a feather at 120mph than a brick at half that speed!

Clearly, it shows the durability of Canon products vis-a-vis Sony.

Good thing no one on the ground or in the air was hit.

With performance like this, who needs the ruggedness of a 1-series

Please tell me the 1/4-20 tripod screw isn't the only thing holding onto the camera in a 140mph dive...

Someone should test a Nikon D30 and see if it'll perform the same.

Never underestimate the strength of composite plastice, that's why Boeing is building the world's first composite jetliner.

That's a good question...I used to do some sky-diving and the master divers that did photography used (in addition to the tripod screw) a super heavy duty 'velcro' type material by 3M (called Dual Lock) to secure the camera.

Okay, what did he use to attach the rig to his helmet? Doublestick tape?

The 1 series may survive a 30,000 ft drop.

My question is how did he find it afterward? Ground team watching it fall, maybe?

This wasn't his first jump with this rig. It must have been a rougher opening of the chute or he didn't check all the links properly. He felt the whole helmet was going loose, he grabed it but the cameras just went flying. He saw them going down, tried to estimate the approximate area (any object just falls vertically and you have to add a correction for wind, if any) and he searched the area after landing. Took him around 15-20 minutes to find them, 20 ft apart to each other.

If he had a hood on the kit lens, it would still be working fine.
