Seeing as how I don't drink, it's a moot point... And I never had the obsessive-compulsive need to have a camera with me at all times in the first place.

My party camera is the G9. Almost as good as a DSLR, but fits in the pocket - obviously applies to any of the G-series.

Any time when one is serious about doing anything well, they eventually figure it out not to drink when doing it.

Until then, blaze away . . . its the lessons in life that eventually turn you in the right direction, and we all have to go through it.

Sadly, we all know friends who died before they grew up about alcohol . . . and equally as sad, some of the folks you'll be shooting will someday be those people. Good news . . . most of us come out of it ok eventually.

Well said. We all unfortunatley can relate to what you wrote. We all have it within us to prevent this outcome.

Considering that some other people may handle it besides me as they're snapping. Makes it easy on everyone and myself. Cheap and gets the job done.

Funny story that I will have to share.

I had a friend that used to work in a camera store, so he had 3 7d's and got things for really cheap. He dropped one on accident, it got scratched and dented so he reserved it with his old 16-35mm F2.8L MK I(not used when he got the mk II) as a party camera. He felt what happened happened to it, since the smallest scratch it would get replaced. He passed out drunk at a party and someone spilled cranberry juice on it. He woke up a few hours later and wanted to see what people did with the camera. He tried to turn it on, to his surprise all the switches were sticky, and the shutter would not go off. So in his hung over daze, he took out the card, batteries and closed it up tight, then placed lens and all in the dishwasher. Ran a cycle with no soap and no heat dry. Took it out, dried it off and let it sit for 3 days, turned it on and it worked perfectly. Thus proving, Canon makes their gear dishwasher safe.

He still has the camera to this day and it works wonderfully after over a year.

Which camera do you use when you go drinking ...

My camera can't hold its liquor so I don't let it go drinking. :mrgreen:

That would make a good B&H customer review. :)
