Thread: Any injuries, so far?

    Unhappy Any injuries, so far?

    We have heard morbid stories of photogs who sufferred serious/permanent injuries from carrying their cam equipments, just like the Chinese newspaper photog (who got a painful spinal injury, and who recovered after receiving some godly advices from a Tibetian monk).

    As for me, i have already got a "permanent" left shoulder and left knee problems. It's quite painful at times but when there are photo opportunities, I will still take the pain and go out shooting. I think this is one of the price you will pay when you are carrying the 70-200 F2.8L IS!

    Do you have any such experience?
    Did you give up the heavy equipments becoz of resulted injuries?
    What type of injuries have you sufferred?
    always the Light, .... always.
