I though it would never happen! I had my 40D laying on top of my camera Cabinet. I keep it up on top of my camera Cabinet so I can grab it Quickly. I had been doing this for years and my cat had never tried to jump up on my camera Cabinet. Then it happened! My camera Cabinet is about four feet tall. So he jumps grebes the phone cord with one paw and with the other paw he grabs neck strap with the other paw. Needless to say the phone nor the camera were fasted to any thing.
On the cat's way back down to the floor here comes the phone and my Canon 40D down on top of his head! The cat didn't know which way to run. And I didn't know if I should kick or stomp the cat or just Cry. Right at that moment I felt like doing all of the above.
Now that four days have past. My canon 40D doesn't rattle, so no loose parts may it's not broke but as luck would have it, when I put a new battery in it it would not turn on! So what should I do with my eight year old 40D? Throw it away, give it away, get a new camera, or have it fixed (Oh I wonder how much it will cost)?
