Sturdy GXR and P10!

Hi all,

It's already two weeks back now (Sep 20, 2010), but I would like to let the forum members know that my GXR with P10 module and LC-2 lens cap survived a drop with only a few minor scratches remaining (now, I can't sell it anymore… ) during a mountain hike in France.

The neckstrap got loose on one side, and the camera fell down on the rocks (perhaps about 1m) and rumbled further uphill for about 2m. As the rock was oblique, the bounce was probably watered down. Luckily, the camera was off, and thus the lens protected.

I was completely shocked for the whole evening! Anyway, both the body and the P10, are still going strong!

Best regards,
Gerd

Here is about the location, where the camera dropped (Mount Meygal):
