Ok, it doesn't snow here in Dallas very often. So on Christmas morning I went out to the ice covered street, being really careful, to shoot our house with snow on the ground for the first time. Well, sure enough my feet went out from under me and as I fall back I see my 1dm3 and the 24-70 go flying up in the air to a good 5 feet! It landed just after I did and to my surprise it didn't even knock the lens hood off. Just one little ding on the corner, not too bad. I was able to do the 'snow shoot' and a commercial shoot the next day. I can say that I'm impressed. I've been shooting the cinder blocks (1D ha ha) for years and know of the
ruggedness but dang, that was impressive!

The Texas dog in the snow for the first time ever.

Good to hear nothing really happened to your gear. Cute looking dog, what is it?

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

wow, if that lens landed on you, you'd likely have mild brain damage.

I just hope the impact crater didn't mess up your yard too bad...;)

Thanks she's part chow and part spitz of some sort. We got her from the dog pound 6 years ago and she's the best dog ever.

Ha, my kids would tell you that I've had that for years!

Shelter dogs are always the best! They are so much more grateful for a home. :D

That's good news... and maybe the snow cushioned the fall a bit.
That's good test of the durability!

Good idea! I'll do that tomorrow (my secondary rig is on loan tonight). I guess it hit just right. A bit of scratch on the bottom right of the body near the grip control buttons. And the lens hood did get a little scrap on the edge. I just wish that I had the pic of it happening!

Did you get a pic of the impact crater it created? :lol:

Glad all seems well.
