Came across this video on youtube, of a guy crashing his rig.




I thought it was brave of him to post it.  It was also interesting to see that second angle, and see how all the little things add up to the big accident.  Like not having a spotter, or being fixated on the monitor.  Well, maybe not so little things, but definitely separate, but important things.  I thought maybe the guy shooting the second angle could have said something before the tumble, but I guess he was locked in to his viewfinder as well.  Ouch!

That was a bad fall. Could have ended really badly. A little scout of the path before could have prevented it. I am glad he was Ok after taking a toss like that.

Wow! Just another reminder to always walk the course before shooting it. 

I do love learning lessons but it sucks when it costs someone that much to teach us.

not even walk the course before... here were are talking about having a quick glance at your front path before start running... if it wasn't that bad for the equipment I would have thought of a candid camera (did it on purpose)... (not to mention the horizon rolling that might say something about the all scene)
