  • You Can Never Be Too Careful

    Everyone would agree that video equipment is fragile. Despite our best efforts to keep it secure and safe things happen and damage can occur. Sometimes the damage to video gear is subtle, other times it's catastrophic. Obviously, if a camera falls off the tripod it could be destroyed, but even if a piece of equipment is simply placed down too aggressively a small part can break and go unnoticed for a while. Such was the case with one of our small nine-inch video monitors. At some point this monitor must have taken a sizable hit on the corner and because it is wrapped in a "protective case" the damage was not noticed for some time. As you can see in the pictures, what seems like just a small crack turned out to be a more significant issue affecting the power button. Luckily the damage was fixed with some super glue and a product called Sugru but it could've been a lot worse.
