Nope!

I have a better idea… I THINK I WILL POUR EVERY LIQUID PRODUCT I HAVE IN THE HOUSE OVER MY NIKON D3 AND LENS… Yeah! That sounds like fun!

Honey??? Hey Honey??? Do you know where the hammer is?

Oh never mind… I’ll just find something tough to bang nails into the wall with.

Hey… I know what? I’ll use my Nikon D2x and brand spanking new D3. Nothing crazy about that when you have a couple of the toughest cameras made today.

Nikon D3 Survives Two Story Drop

CLICK ARROW TO PLAY VIDEO!

You have to pay attention to this one. Two items fall from the second story apartment stairwell.

The first item is Joseph’s father’s cellphone. The second item is Joseph’s brand spanking new Nikon D3.

As you can tell from the video, one of those two items did not survive the fall.

Personally, I thought it was highly irresponsible of Joseph to throw his dad’s $99 cellphone over the railing.

That is… UNTIL HE THREW FIVE GRAND WORTH OF CAMERA OVER THE EDGE!

After which… I forgot all about the cellphone.

Boy is his dad gonna be mad!
