Maybe he should take a few less shots coming down the aisle and watch where he's going. :-)

I also liked the other guy grabbing the camera first. Who cares about the guy, he can be replaced but the camera, it's got all the images!

Wow - wasn't expecting this...

Actualy I feel sorry for this guy.

On the other hand - if those were 7D's they're water proof :-)

I can just imagine the videographer chuckling to himself as the photog approached the water.

I mean, he coulda warned the poor guy!

I guess he could have warned him but he probably figured they would be even since he blocked his aisle shot the whole time.

I wonder how or if the photographer was able to shoot the rest of the day. Both cameras and lenses took a thrashing. Maybe he hijacked a guest's camera? Unless he was close to his house, he'd have to buy new clothes too.

I really wish I could see the next 2 minutes of this video with sound.

I wish this had the original sound then a techno beat.

Well it did look like the "video guy" was just someone sitting there manning a tripod... otherwise maybe you'd have seen a video of TWO guys going into the drink <wink>.

MEMO:
ALways check your path before backing up while shooting...

I actually walked in reverse for a good 2 minutes shot on my last wedding. Lucky I didn't bump into anything but this serves me a good warning!

I used to do that as well - then I changed the "style" and now I'm maybe walking 10-15 feet the most. Image is too shaky anyway. Now after watching this vid I might stop walking backwards all together.

As they are pulling him out you can see the little light is still illuminated on the camera's rear - so it looks like at least something on the camera was still working! Most importantly, I wonder if he was able to salvage the card?
