Weekly Photo Challenge : Delicate

This is my first DSLR Camera, And I learnt the “Delicacy” of this Camera when I dropped it and broke my Lens.

It was certainly a lesson for to learn that “MY DSLR IS SO DELICATE”. And it requires proper handling.

Here are some pics of the broken lens. I have still kept this lens to remind me that I should take good care of my photography gear πŸ™‚

  1. Hi, and thanks for stopping by my blog. I appreciate it!

    I accidentally dropped my 85mm Canon prime lens off a 4ft high table. It fell hard because it was so heavy and thankfully didn’t break. The lens filter on the front took the impact. The glass on it split into a few pieces and the lens was saved.

    Do you have cases for your lenses? They’re an extra expense, yes, and a good safety measure. Try some!

    1. Thanks for taking out time to write your experience, Lucky you πŸ™‚ In my case, I was trying shoot me and my file on a typical self shooting pose, smile on face, faces are attached at some tourist location. The Filter saved the lens glass but it stuck badly that I couldn’t take the filter out. I applied little force and lens motor broke. So tip from me, buy a trigger device and a tripod. Also a wrist band to lock the camera – Specially for adventure lovers πŸ™‚

      1. Or you can use the timer on your DSLR…that’s what I do. Set it for 10 seconds then get into frame. My filter was stuck at first. Believe it or not, I took it to the mechanic who worked on my car. He had a wrench or something that was able to grip the filter and turn it off for me. That was a relief.
