I just read through this thread, man that just sucks. I don't know what else to say.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

Am I the only one that thinks that this doesn't sound quite right? ;)

I caught that as well.

I thought it was cheaper over there.

My dog almost pooped on my old XTI when i put it down on the grass, I'm starting to believe people when they say my dog has a evil look. He might be on to something, hmm... i better buy a case for my next camera ;)

Maybe he wants you to buy a Noink.

I salute you for not blaming the dog. As for those of you that don't like dogs, watch that video of the dog that ran onto the highway to drag another dog to safety. That takes balls.

Sucks about your gear but I'm glad you don't blame your dog. That just wouldn't be right.

Sorry to hear about your blown up camera. I bet you learned a thing or two that day. Insurance, or out of pocket replacement, so I hope it goes well in the end.

Ugh, Sorry Marcel. That's just too bad. Expensive lesson learned. :(

One would hope so, but apparently not:

I'll check that out and call tomorrow, but like i said... they probley wont do anything about it like they didn't a few years ago when something like this happend.

I was thinking of going to shoot some stuff down at Stanley Park this weekend. Just for the safety of my 40D, you're not going to be anywhere near that part of town, are you? ;)

Nope, not the doggies fault. You put the camera in his territory. It was fair game. He can't tell if it's a 1300.00 camera or a dollar store squeek toy. An expensive lesson learned the hard way is a lesson never forgoten. I'm sure we've all been there.......:rolleyes:

Buy him a photo vest and make him carry your gear around for you. With assistants rates he should be able to work it off in a few months.
