At least I didn't break that big piece of watermelon. (Inside Joke for Herb and Matt).  This is what happens when your monopod head decides to let go of your most expensive camera. It hit the pavement with mucho gusto. Broke the magnesium alloy housing. Toast. The good news is that I added all my photo gear to my insurance policy about two weeks ago. $100 deductible but damn am I glad I set that up. New camera arrives tomorrow thanks to and their $3.99 overnight shipping charge.
