    A very battered beastie - still his pictures survived.

    I put a card through the wash once
    (money laundering) and it survived

    If it had been an old Zenit the camera would still be intact and the rocks surrounding it ground to dust.

    Da! Such is the power of the Soviet system of production. This is why the Soviet Union will sweep away the cringing jackals of capitalism. Oh! Wait a minute... :cool:

    I saw that story on FB the other day and I'm really pleased that they found out who the camera/card/images belonged to. It's lovely when things like that work out well. Struggling a bit with the idea of walking away and leaving my camera, even on a tripod, next to the river if there was even the remoted chance of it slipping/falling/being swept away but then maybe I'm paranoid.

    I'm sure I am - I'm not relaxed even if my trail camera is sited in my garden.

    This would be why AP when it reviewed the relatively new Zenit E described it in a way that I not sure would be PC these days, so edited.... 'robust enough to be used for photos and as a club and "certain regional" wedding..'

    Will the insurance co want a rebate for the memory card retrieved.... ? probably.

    50 metres of parachute cord goes with me when out and about.
    If I put my tripod down anywhere I think it is in danger from wind etc, just tie it to a tree or something,
