At the airport shooting... I put my combo on the hood of the car, near the wiper blades. I thought the weight of the gear would keep it in place....WRONG! It rolled-off and hit the asphalt.

I think the attached lens hood saved the lens from cracking.

My luck ran the other way.

Running late for wedding, quickly load up the car, pull out into traffic, look in rear view mirror.

50D ON THE TRUNK!

Ease over to shoulder, retrieve camera.  WHEW!

The weight of the 50D plus the Sunpak 622 provided enough friction to stay put, I guess.
