    I was thinking more along the lines of "Steve Austin" once it's been rebuilt (cue theme song from "The Six Million Dollar Man"). Fortunately it won't cost anywhere near that much to return to function.

    There are better ways to "make a big splash" as a photographer.

    That is a horror story. I sure hope that everything can be made good as new.

    Just think if you had been shooting a digital camera with an ultra expensive back tethered to a laptop computer and it all hit the drink.

    Oh, had it been anything else (even a modern metal view camera) I'd be lucky to have my tripod back, with a hunk of useless, twisted metal on the end of it. And were it electronic, well... I'd be lucky if the memory could be recovered.

    I'd think this would be one memory you'd rather not recover...
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.
