What to Do if Your Camera Breaks and how to Prevent that

When on the road, you should always use a custom carrying case for your camera and lens. Cameras and lens are both expensive and fragile. If bumped against a wall, dropped on the floor, or caught in the elements, a camera is likely to break (completely or partially). What does someone do when their expensive camera and accessories break? If you are reading this, we hope it is not because your camera just broke.

Custom Foam Inserts

In many cases, individuals see the bump or drop coming but can do little to nothing about it. It is like one of the slow motions scenes where you can do nothing but watch as the bad thing happens. Even people who would never define themselves as a klutz are known to have accidents with their camera

A blow molded case that has custom foam inserts for your camera is the best way to keep gear safe while traveling. If you do drop your camera without a custom carrying case, consider taking these steps.

Take the battery out of the camera. If your camera is only partially damaged, the battery can still cause parts in the system to move, which can cause more damage. Power off your camera to avoid additional damage.

Remove the flash card. SD cards are solid-state devices, which means they can withstand bumps and even quick dunks in water. Usually, electrical surges cause SD cards to get ruined. Taking out the card means you might be able to salvage some images.

Custom Foam Inserts

Avoid DIY fixes. A broken camera can become more broken when in the hands of someone that does not know what they are doing. Spend the extra money hiring a professional that can fix your busted camera or lens.
