Cameras shouldn't look new.

As many of you know, while working with a family the other day, up in American Fork Canyon, next to the river, my camera, lens and flash decided to go swimming. Water and electronic equipment just don't mix! Luckily, the session was about over, and we finished up with a backup camera. I called my good friend Stephen at Kew's Camera Service in Provo, and he delivered the news that my equipment was DOA. Now I have a bag of the dripping wet camera equipment, that yesterday was worth a little over $3000. Perhaps I can use it to make desk paper weights, or Christmas ornaments. As I was working with my insurance, they needed a letter from Stephen stating the condition of the equipment. It was kinda funny, as he has taken each of the ruined items apart several times for various repairs. He said you can tell the professionals from the "want-to-be's" by how nice their equipment looks. A photographer that photographs thousands of portraits will wear out his equipment. Accidents happen when you use your stuff so often. I remember reading in the classifieds someone was selling their camera because it cost so much that they were afraid to damage it. Go figure. That's like being a race driver and being afraid of getting flat tires. The good news... my new camera, flash and lens is on order and will be here shortly!
