I always like to take out my batteries from the camera everytime after a photoshoot, before putting the camera in a dry cabinet. So there was one time, I brought out all my equipments for a performance. Spot taken, set up flashes, sling camera, everything ready. I switch on the camera to test shot and thought the camera spoiled and couldn't be on, was stuck there trying to figure out for the full min, then i realised ... I forgot to insert the batteries into the camera before going out ... in the end.... pack everything up and go home... angry with myself of cos.

i have a few unforgettable incidents.
1. Got a call from friend about a rare bird sighted, grab my gears and speed all the way there. Set up equipment and realize that I had forgotten to bring my CF cards porch. Even my spare 1Gb card had been loan out to a friend on an earlier trip. Luckily saw a friend around who have a spare card.
2. Rush all the way to Fraser hill. set off from sg ard midnight and reach Fraser hill early in the morning. Start shooting till evening and drove to KL for the night stay. reach Hotel ard 9pm and by then its already almost 24hr without sleep and after I took my bath, I download my shots to my laptop. Was waiting for my buddy to finish his bath because he wants to download his photos using my laptop too. While waiting for him, I lie on bed holding my camera and view the photos..... zzzzzzzz woke up the next morning. Luckily my buddy help to keep my camera else if drop will be gone case.
Back in 2001-02 when digicams were a luxury, we still used the film cameras. We were gg to another sch's function so we bought a new film roll for it. I swore we snapped at least 20 shots with the hosts even and promised to email them the scanned photos. While on the way back, these 2 jokers with the camera kept looking ard guiltily, then admitted the film wasn't fitted properly.
Till now, those friendly hosts never knew wat happened...
