This is the last shot my 7D took before my tripod tipped over and landed in the river.

Nice picture! That sucks though about your 7d. Did you have insurance on it?

It killed my 7D and my Sigma 10-20mm lens. I did not have it insured but going to check my homeowners insurance.

My 50d and Sigma 10-20mm fell off the tripod and into a creek last year. I took it to a local camera repair shop and they repaired the camera for about $250 and the lens dried itself out. Haven't had a single problem with either. I'll be happy to send you their name and number. It's worth a shot.

Sorry to hear about your camera! That sucks. A gust of wind almost took mine over the edge of Horseshoe bend, but luckily I grabbed it in time...

My 7D has been inside a bag of rice the past four days. I turned it on today and it works. The miracle of rice!!!!

That's great news. I tried rice but it didn't work for me.

I almost always set up my tripod, then clip the camera on, and leave the strap around my neck just dangling loose. To move, I unclip the camera, which takes only a few seconds on my Slik. It has saved the camera a couple of times.

Yep that's how I handle mine in sticky situations
