Ever wonder what would happen....

if your backpack containing an expensive piece of photographic equipment came unzipped because you ride a vibrating V-twin down a bumpy rural road at 90+MPH?

this:
Rest in pieces.......
Pic 2
Pic 3

oh well, I wanted a 50D anyways.....

Perhaps this belongs in the "What I learned today" section .. because I learned to always put a carabiner through the zippers on my backpack! But hey, at least I recovered my 16GB Extreme III CF card... intact!

I don't own an expensive camera. So if said backpack with said camera came unzipped.....mommy would kill me.

Did that happen on the Quaker Stake ride?
That sucks dude, but I'd stick with Nikon.

no no no that happened in Michigan last weekend, just got around to pulling the remains out of my other tank bag and taking pictures with my POS point and shoot camera to post on here and mourn....

I'm honestly not that upset about it, which is really shocking for what I paid for the camera and lens.. but *shrug* probably because I really wanted another cam anyways and like I said, this gives me an excuse ....

yeah, right....
maybe if most of the ribbon cables hadn't been violently severed... the CCD does look to be intact though, but I'm certain it needs way more work than I'm willing to put into it, or than it's worth for what it is (Rebel XTi) when the XSi is so cheap ($600 or less for the body only)

I would just make some sort of streetfighter camera out of it at this point. That, or part it out on ebay.

This really scares me, because I, also, ride a vibrating V-twin at similar speeds with the same camera in my backpack...

Why should it scare you just use something to connect the zippers together

I always put the zippers both at the far side of the pack (which would be the part closest to your butt while you're wearing it). a lot of people zip them together at the top, which would allow the weight of what's inside to slowly open it.

check out that new nikon d700......

Well, it was only a Canon. No huge loss.

Just kidding. I'd cry. I was almost in tears the other day when I picked up my tank bag (which I forgot to zip) and my Nikon flopped out onto the floor.

But Nikons are a little more robust then their plastic analogs.

we're not going to get into a brand war, are we?
Let me drop your Nikon at 90+mph and see how it takes it =P

I'm just messin. I doubt my Nikon would look happy after a 90MPH cartwheel down the pavement.

Though it does have a magnesium frame and rubber coated polycarb skin....

ouch, rule #1 either zip tie your backpack or make sure all zippers are sipped down to one side or the other. the wind hitting the zipper also helps it come undone if you leave them top center.

word is a lot of people that switched to canon in the past are looking back into nikon because there's not much better equipment out there for low light applications.

but if you have a bunch of canon lenses already, it would be somewhat financially dumb to switch. unless you can get good money for selling your equipment.

All I have to say is ouch..... I'm definitely going to start considering ties and whatnot to keep my backpack closed. I had something happen with a t-shirt once that flew out of my backpack and almost onto my friend's helmet (obviously not as catastrophic but similar situation).
