$11,000 in Camera Gear Destroyed in a Split Second at Drag Race

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”.
