We are at war. We are at war with our equipment. I think anyone who films, shoots photos, or even just carries an iPhone has had that moment. You might have just been in the wrong place at the wrong time. Maybe you just pushed that fisheye a little to close. It was that one session you left your phone in your pocket. It happens, the inevitable, the unavoidable, disaster. In a moment of frantic thoughts you look down to see exactly what damage was caused, sometimes it’s nothing, other times it’s everything.
This time I got lucky. It wasn’t my HD camera, nor was it my brand new fisheye or even my personal heath. It was just a broken battery (which is still under warranty). All it took was the one small rock I didn’t sweep away. This time I got lucky.
