I would recommend retiring that piece of gear after the fatal fall.
Luckily I have a nice retirement home for old and beat up fellers like yours probably is. Yes, at the Duncan's Rack Ranch for dropped cams we can provide a non-threatening environment for your "damaged" cams.
Karsten, our friend, Mr. Green is uninsured; he was a climbing bum most of his life, so he'll be recovering at Tent City in Las Vegas. He might end up at Jean Prison if Oscar Goodman is still considering rounding up the homeless, and housing them at the Jean "ranch."
Pete, I'm glad you liked it. It's my favorite unexpected "action butt shot" I've taken so far.
Doug, I'm so thankful he doesn't leave the ground without his rack, and fortunately, he very rarely drops gear.
And Jonny, your face expression, the wide opened mouth, and your eyes glued to the falling cam says it all. Fun climb, fun day! : )
Cool shot Gigi!!! I feel bad for that small cam! I imagine this was roll out, I can't see the great John Hegyes dropping a prized possesion! On the other hand, there is a name for the unfortunate soul that flings objects from thier gear sling..."Dick Fingers"! Hope all is well!
