One of the questions that comes back most often when people learn what I do for a living is: how do you manage not to drop your camera? Up until Saturday, I could (somewhat smugly) answer that I am being very careful and have been lucky so far.
Over the past week there have been several complaints lodged against Nikon claiming that the LCD screen on the D4 and D800 has a green cast when compared to the older models.

Mark J. Rebilas was shooting a drag race with a remote camera rig recently when an out-of-control dragster flew into the rig at high speed. In a split second, he lost $11K worth in camera gear, including a Nikon D700 with battery grip, a Nikon 400mm 2.8 lens, and a Pocket Wizard Plus receiver. He should have outfitted the rig with an “ejection seat”.
