Had a bit of a tragedy a while back. My Canon 1DS Mark III was water damaged beyond repair due to accidentally being placed under a wet cloth. My 1d IV survived the same treatment due to having no cracks in the rear LCD, and not missing the small rubber, circular cover on the right side. I might be dumb enough ruin a $7000 camera, but not dumb enough to not have insurance. Thanks to TCP insurance, I will be able to replace my III in the very near future. I would suggest insurance to everyone who cares about their camera gear. They saved my tail! Kinda a bummer I put my gear in dangerous shooting situations weekly, and have never had any catastrophic damage while actually shooting. Just while half asleep and forgetting where my cameras were...:/ Either way, here are some photos of the carnage, enjoy!

Haha, gross. Thank goodness for insurance! Nice dis-assembly, the corrosion is pretty extensive. That reminds me, insurance.....

*runs away to research insurance for the umpteenth time but will likely not go through with it yet again...don't ask me why, it's a problem I know*

Wow, the damage looks quite extensive. Good to hear insurance is covering it.

That is horrifying, good thing you have insurance. Since you were willing to fork out $7000 might as well splurge a little more, no? When will you get it replaced?

How do you get insurance for your photo gear. Is there a special insurance carrier for photographers?

I'm honestly surprised your insurance will pay off on negligence...

Mine will.. my insurance will pay if I drop it, throw it out my window, or even piss on it. ;)

I made sure to get this type of a policy, because after having gone through Katrina and watching insurance company after insurance company try to weasel out of paying anything in claims, I made sure to get it stipulated that they replace my gear at insured cost, no matter what.

As is my stuff but "willful disregard" is the last reason I'd ever actually give my insurance company...

Maybe Jimmy's description doesn't really explain fully what happened?

looks like the wet cloth must have been in sea or ocean water... cant imagine fresh water creating that much corrosion ...unless it sat around for weeks after the damage... wow. Glad to hear it'll be cared for :)

Yeah, I think I would have made an ashtray, pencil holder, or something out of it, rather than disassemble it.

Is this the body you threw in to the trash can at Huntington Beach last year?

I did not think it possible but you break way more stuff than me
:rolleyes:

Not sure how many actuations were on it, I would imagine around 120k, but unsure, and it was damaged while using this camera on assignment covering a MLS Timbers game in the rain. The rain cover I used to cover my 1ds III was wet and stored in the same location as this camera overnight.
