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!

7 the sensor seems to be the only thing with zero water damage...
Thanks for looking! Be safe with your gear and get insurance: )
