Happened to me two weeks ago. I failed to tighten my Bogen quick release and it was not pushed past the safety latch. The Canon XH camera slid out of the monopod and crashed onto a curb and the result:

1. Broken light
2. Broken plastic shoe mount on my Sony wireless
3. Broken cold shoe extender
4. Bogen quick release on base of the camera pushed into base of camera cracking the camera body.

My new Sony MRC1 was unharmed

This all happened in the middle of the outdoor reception. After cobbling the stuff togther, it all worked so I could complete the evening. Other than the base of the camera being not flat any more, the camera still works. Could have been much worse.

seems like XHA1 is a tough camera after all...
