    Cool!
    The lcd and all the controls still work, it just doesn't fire, so the bulb is probably broken.
    Yeah there goes 150 bucks, sweet!

    yeah... well atleast you didnt give your camera to some chick and have her hold it for you because there were stupid little fuckers (10 year olds) wanting to take pictures with it... THEN, while she's trying to keep it out of the fuckers little grubby mitts she holds it above her head (to keep it out of reach) and then hits the fan with it, which knocks the whole setup (D70 and SB800) out of her hand and onto the ground..



    mother fucking lose is all i have to say.... mother fucking lose.

    Sounds like it redna.

    Although nothing bad happened, last friday I got kinda scared. I was at a show with my d70, 70-200 VR and sb600. A girl I'm friends with is asking for a d50 for christmas and expects to take amazing band pictures with it...so I'm near the back switching batteries and she goes lemme see. So I hand her the camera expecting her to look at the pictures, but instead she just trots up right next to the bands and starts taking pictures...scared me just a bit

    I gotta agree with this, the 580ex definitly seems a lot better built than the nikon sb-800

  19. here we go... :hsugh:
     
  20. I only dropped one once. Well actually I kinda saw it begin to fall off the bracket then I saw it actually topple over and begin it's decent to the hard concrets so I stuck my leg out in an attempt to catch it with my shin which I believe may have helped in saving the little guys' life. :wiggle:

    That's just how I roll.

    I dropped mine from 3 feet onto concrete.
    Nothing is cracked or broken, everything still works, it just doesn't fire.

    It was a pic request thread.
    One of the requests was, take a picture with a trashcan on your head, so I did.
