The 7D might be weather proofed, but it can't stand fire

I think the Loyalty Program is only for USA models. If Canon could somehow still read the serial #, they would know that it was not one of their products.


No bragging list - I just rent whatever the job requires.

no, it's their product, just not their US product...

it wouldn't be that hard to just chip that part of the camera off....

I own a french car.... LOL!!! :lol:


I did receive a comment from the Support at Sandisk, when I asked if it was possible to replace the Sandisk card, in case it took some beating even if it's not a visible one: "In this case we have to inform you that if the card is working fine there is no problem with it and it is covered by warranty."

The serial number on the camera is probably readable, as the grip probably protected the bottom of the actual camera. (And see Bens post in the previous page).

I might've missed it, but how does a car burst into flames??

Everyone's so amazed about the CF card, but to me that's not that hard to believe.

It's really hard to wrap my mind around how a car can catch fire!!


P.S. I've made up my mind years ago to never own anything but Japanese cars.

Cars contain fuel and sparks and that's all you need with lots of O2 around...

"never light your camera on fire" is solid advice! Glad you're ok!

LOL!! Well I'll drive my french car, don't worry... and I'll drive it as long as it runs (knocks on wood). It's just a 2005 Renault Laguna Touring... no fancy sports car for me. I'm practical like that.

Wow, so I just read the whole thread. Glad to hear both the guys made it out unharmed!

At least you still have pictures from italy and not everything was a loss :) Sucks to hear about all the gear and car though.

Yeah, Michael asked me if he could write about it. I of course said yes!

It almost feels like it's a viral thing now. Hopefully something will come out of it. Next week we'll find out if the insurance company can help, and we've already talked about what to do with our equipment.

Before the accident we were discussing how to merge our equipment, to get the best of the best. So we might sell off some lenses (both him and me) and other gear *IF* the insurance company can cover the camera, to be able to upgrade to the 1D Mk IV. I hope he realizes he'll never touch that camera... it's gonna be mine! :D
