Nikon D3S Survives High Speed Tumble from Motorcycle

So we know DSLR cameras can survive plunges down cliffs (but not being trapped in a burning car), but what about being dropped onto pavement while traveling at high speeds? Shahrizan Jeffri Aziz was covering the Tour de Langkawi on a motorcycle when the unthinkable happened: his Nikon D3S and 300mm f/2.8 lens flew out of his hands and “spread all over the road”.

Miraculously the camera still functioned perfectly and, after having its “flesh wounds” covered up with duct tape, was soon back in action.
