I’d recommend doing it in the form of a Nikon camera. More specifically, the Nikon D800 You know, with a lens attached and a couple 32 GB cards inside. Like I did on one of those awesomely touristy double decker buses last week in NYC.
Oh yes I did.
A normal person would panic, but not me. I’m not normal.
I’m experienced at dropping thousands of dollars worth of camera equipment on the ground.
Only last time I did it (several years ago, mind you) it was the Nikon D2X camera body with an 80-200mm lens attached. In the middle of a session with a client. And I dropped it on the sidewalk outside our studio.
That time I panicked. (Because I used to be normal.) But after quickly determining that everything was working just fine, we carried on with our session and never had an issue with that camera or lens.
So while last week’s debacle on the double decker did cause me to string together a few profanities, I had faith.
And after Keith pried the lens cap off of the cracked filter …. USE A FILTER PEOPLE … we found that the camera was just fine (sans filter anyway). And kept shooting away…
Par for the course with our previous Nikon experiences. High five Nikon people.

Of course he did…
