    I quite often like to put my camera in apple sauce, so that was a really useful video. I also like to put my guitars in chutney. And you should see the look on my girlfriend's face when I suggest putting my organ in cider....

    Ugh

    For some reason that pained me more than any crash footage I've seen.
    Poor camera.

    That was the most stupid thing I've seen in a long time. Why the fsck would anyone do that on purpose? This guy obviously doesn't work very hard for his money.

    What a gross misappropriation of applesauce! In all seriousness, if I could redirect some bike funds for a camera, that pretty much sold me right there.

    all pro camera bodys are splash proof and sturdy because they get tossed around all the time. But dropping a new D3 or pouring coffee over it is just idiotic - unless this is intended to be a Nikon commercial.

    I mean, cops wear bullet proof vests, but i don't see them shooting at each other and posting a video of it on youtube just to proof a point....

    I've got a D50 and I'm pretty hard on it. It gets knocked around in my car, hits trees when hiking, has been backpacking in the rain, etc.

    This guy gets major props in my book, why? Because its his money helping me better know how far my money will go.
