Classic example of a "sneaker wave." My mom almost was killed by one of these, note the huge log rolling towards camera at the end.

Well that is a horrible thing to happen, but that was a nice gesture on the part of B&H, they have always treated me well as a customer.

Not too swift. I thought there were waterproof housings for such cameras.

I've bought my gear from B&H for 20+ years and this is another example of a fine organization.

Hope this does not inadvertently turn in to a "best crazy video" contest where people endanger themselves and destroy camera gear in hopes of having it replaced by B&H. It is great that they took pity on him, but obviously they can not do that on a regular basis.

Apparently not. While discussing this I told the boss I'd left the windows of my car open the last time it rained and needed B&H to buy me a new Acura TL. That isn't happening. :-)

If it wasn't so costly, that's a pretty funny video

Henry, If B&H replaced this camera, could you give us the reasoning? In my opinion, while a nice gesture, you guy's (assuming you work for B&H) just opened a door you should have left closed. Replacing gear damaged because of stupidity?

If I dropped my 500 and broke the front element because I tripped on a tree root, is B&H gonna replace it? No - well you did it for him.

Every once in awhile. Never put it together though. It's Friday at 2:30EST, Ian - leave me alone.
