Did anybody else notice the 2 or 3 snappers by the water jump during the Mens 3K Steeplechase at the Olympic Stadium last night. At least 2 of them had their cameras actually in a puddle caused by a previous jump and so when the guys jumped again, their cameras were swamped.
Now you know why pro cameras cost so much. Not sure I'd be happy doing it even so

Don't worry, these guys are on big money and I'm sure there camera's are insured.
1. Believe me, they are NOT on big money (many if most are not staffers and staffers rates are pretty low anyway)
2. Insurance is irrelevant if your cameras stop working on a job
My point is, that's why pros use £5K all metal weather sealed cameras and not £1500 plastic and metal bodies
Not all pros need ultra waterproof cameras. Some pros' equipment never venture outside a studio.
I saw that and wondered just like you did. I would think the view that we saw on TV was a little foreshortened as I doubt the splashes we saw actually landed on such expensive equipment. I would guess for the other guys behind screens, that all those large, long lenses were mainly on hire'. So they too would be looked after.
Some people don't feel the need to be pedantic but others enjoy it You knew exactly what I meant
Here we go again. Another flippin argument........yawn.

I'm not sure I agree with that!
No argument except perhaps in your head. Look at the smilies ffs
Are you trying to argue that there isn't an argument?
I don't think it's an argument, more a load of gainsaying.

I rest my case (ffs!!!!)
When Nikon "professional" cameras became far more weatherproof than in the past, the Nikonos underwater camera could be quietly discontinued!
