    come to think of it....

    does dropping the external flash (because it wasn't mounted properly) and smashing it (not exactly lah, the batteries just fell out) in front of the President while shooting him count?

    It must be formatting a full CF card of shots for the next day when I haven't even off loaded the pics. Now, I never format the card till just before the first shot of the day.

    Well not really equipment related... But I was with a friend shooting at Kranji War Memorial. It started raining and we took shelter in the main structure right on top of the hill. Realised when we walked back to the gate we were literally locked in... The fence was a little too high to climb ourselves...luckily there was one of those big plastic disposal units that could roll, we pushed it next to the fence and managed to climb out... Lucky it wasn't too dark yet or else would have been stuck there the whole night

    This happened to a diving friend.
    Forgotten to take out the lens cover before placing the camera inside the U/W housing, then went diving but cannot take picture the entire dive :-)

    Another friend was reviewing beautiful photos on the camera while the battery sign was showing "going flat", ignored it & happily was deleting the sound saved on one picture or short movie clip when the battery gone totally flat. When we reached the hotel & changed to fresh batteries, all the photos on the memory cards were lost. :-(

    I got stuck at an abandoned house cos of torrential rain, lightning + thunder, which caused the house to rain indoors too (leaky ceiling). With a friend. Literally had to use umbrella to move about inside. Perfect mood for ghost movie? Then finally rain stopped. We decided to carry on shooting. Then after a while rain again. And after abt 1 hour it finally stopped and we made a dash for civillisation.

    Then started to drizzle again suddenly, so we hid at a shack in the compound. But it turned into torrential rain again. So we were trapped once again. Luckily I had ponchos. Then, at the slightest sign of rain getting lighter, we made a dash to civilisation again. Rain continued very heavily. Finally reached the bus stop, with pants wet.

    People were looking, we were like 2 idiots running in the rain.

    Some people do that on society outings.. They just wanted to show off their equipment.

    I experience something similar.

    Shooting 36 exposures with the film canister loaded. But without the film being fed.
