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)

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

All my crumplers i have are very hardy one. My current 7MDH holds my entire DSLR setup which includes, 1 body with grip, 3 lenses, 1 flash, and accessories. In addition, i also have the bundle strapped to the side of the 7MDH which holds my handphone and also store my portable music rig.

All these which made the 7MDH around 7+kgs and carried the whole day when out on shoots and have been doing that for over a year liao, nothing snapped.

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? :bsmilie:
