    1. Remove residual debris on camera body, lens front element, blow lens front element
    2. Check all equipment, see if it still takes photos (camera _ lens with / without flash)

    The bag should be able to sustain the weight of your gear.

    The carabiner should be gd enough but do note that different sized carabiner also have different weight limits. If i were u, i'd get get a new one.

    Try not to trust plastic loops and plastic bag connectors. Not the first time camera bag have crashed because plastic gave way, and definitely not the last time.

    Some will insist and say my one ok lah I use always no problem but at the end of the day, whose equipment is at risk - yours or the other persons?
