Obviously you've never met Suzy. A carpenter/engineer she's not.
Actually, I am a math teacher, and I do the engineering things here, but
I'm not very strong, so I bought 2 different filter removal systems, watched several videos on how to do it, but no luck. A couple of POTN friends tried, as well. Usually, when I have something to do on my mind, it gets done, one way or another. But I stray. . . .
I am usually pretty careful with my gear, but the unzipped bag grab is always an issue. The POTN straps are bulky and don't usually fit in a bag to zip up, so I leave the straps out of the bag, zip to the end until the strap is the only thing hanging out. But that leaves the possibility of the zipper coming undone. I now take my teacher rolling thing with me on shoots if I am shooting alone. It's not glamorous, but it is useful and I don't drop bags or gear.
