    Well, everything has dried pretty well on its own. The shutter seems to be back ALMOST to working order, after exercising it a little, although the shutter tripping mechanism is a little wonky. The camera body is dry, with no mildew or rot. Next step is to contact Richard for an estimate.

    Glad to hear you didn't go over the falls! Camera gear can always be fixed or replaced, a broken neck, well not so easy.

    How were the pictures? One of the best images I've ever made came at the expense of a broken lens. Sometimes it's all worth it.

    ouch! we should start a thread! I have LOTS of stories. My FIRST LF was taken out from being run over by a bunch of rowdy college kids in a pickup truck in a gravel pit at 2AM. My second (arca swiss) I lost over the side of a building when i hit the quick release by mistake (not used one SINCE!!) - and an acquaintance of mine working for hedrich blessing left a bag of lenses in a parking lot...

    Any accident that turns out better than the opening shot of Rear Window should count as minor. Amazing how tough these old beasts are.

    The nice thing about a view camera is that I can't fix almost any problem in my own shop, except for
    the lens itself.

    Sorry to hear it Scott but it sounds like you'll be back in biz here shortly.
    Good luck.

    My thoughts similar to others... I'm glad you didn't go in the river and get hurt. Hope your camera is back to normal soonest!
