    Giveaway at event – One wet camera….

  3. Sailor October 13, 2010 at 11:11 am #

    The D7000 can handle that kind of water splash?! Or did you use some waterproof case?

    I liked the previous creative inspiration teaser better, this one hasn’t got any twist

      Even if the camera is sealed from the weather, the lens and mount are not. They either trashed the lens our used a protective housing such as an Ewa housing.

  4. Victor Eleuterio October 13, 2010 at 11:11 am #

    yeaaah! Weather sealing rules.

  5. Moep October 13, 2010 at 11:13 am #

    Yep! Nice brainstorming environment.

  6. Blake Murphy October 13, 2010 at 11:15 am #

    Got to love weather sealing!

  7. Martin October 13, 2010 at 11:16 am #

    was it warm water?

  8. Paul "pabloconrad" Conrad October 13, 2010 at 11:17 am #


    Ummm, is your camera fairly waterproof? Or is do you just get lucky and not get it very wet?

    Awesome way to announce your Keynote speech at PDN.

    Don’t have too much fun.

  9. Ray October 13, 2010 at 11:17 am #

    Nice! I’m there!

  10. Michael Nguyen October 13, 2010 at 11:19 am #

    Freak of nature!! and I not talking about the weather!!! lol

  11. brec October 13, 2010 at 11:22 am #

    that jarvis guy, always thinking five steps ahead, pretty sweet to have that video recorded on your sailing trip.

    i like the current blogging frequency, nice entertainment ;) though there s some open questions in earlier post, would be great if these wouldn t fall through the grid


  12. Carl Licari October 13, 2010 at 11:25 am #

    Don’t buy any used gear from this guy!!! LOL!

  13. Chase October 13, 2010 at 11:27 am #

    LOVE the B roll! Nice video broseph

  14. Rick Koetter October 13, 2010 at 11:35 am #

    Very nice. It reminds me of a scene out of Back To The Future (minus the water). “Doc!!! I have to tell you something about the future!!!”

    • Guasch October 14, 2010 at 8:05 am #

      oh lord, exactly what hit my mind within the first 10 seconds LOL

  15. JQ Jr October 13, 2010 at 11:48 am #

    Seeya there!

  16. Ox October 13, 2010 at 11:50 am #


  17. Matt Brennan October 13, 2010 at 12:09 pm #

    Very well said. Looking forward to it.

  18. Toby October 13, 2010 at 12:15 pm #

    You’re a douche! Loved it! x

  19. Piotr "PedroF" Grajek October 13, 2010 at 12:44 pm #

    I see that You got some “hits” regarding the ideas… :)

  20. Big E October 13, 2010 at 1:06 pm #

    yeah, please comment on your experience with Nikon’s water sealing! I think it’s something most people that are, admittedly not as adventurous you are, curious about.

    • Chase October 13, 2010 at 2:39 pm #

      ok. not intending this to be a gear post, but in all seriousness, the camera has not missed a beat-worked perfectly all day, and everyday thereafter. i simply wiped this camera with a fresh water rag to remove the salt after this experience and wiped it dry with a towel. good to go.
      note that I had my back to the waves so it wasn’t taking direct shots, but it got plenty wet….

  21. 'Caps October 13, 2010 at 1:08 pm #

    Fun video. Good to see the humor and humility from such a superstar. Also, I have to live somewhere more exciting. Nothing good happens in GA. Except DragonCon or whatever.

  22. Hafe October 13, 2010 at 1:38 pm #

    You have gone stir crazy?!

  23. Kris Arruda October 13, 2010 at 2:26 pm #

    Hey Chase, just registered, but i’m not sure if the Gold Expo Pass is enough. Do i need anything else to watch your keynote?

    Appreciate if u answer, i’m coming from Brazil.

  24. Sheldon October 13, 2010 at 3:24 pm #

    Dude, I’d keep an eye on that camera. Salt water is death for cameras, weather sealed or not. I’ve had friends lose a D700 and D3x and 5D Mark II to the same type of exposure (wave spray at the beach).

    Glad you’ve got a backup! Oh, wait… it was shooting the video of you. :-)

    Hopefully one camera stayed dry.

  25. Bryan Whitehorne October 13, 2010 at 4:13 pm #

    hahahaha Thats sooo awesome!

  26. Carlos Bruno October 13, 2010 at 4:40 pm #

    AT LEAST McNally didn’t show to NIKON how he use to abuse of his gear.
    I BET the customer for this assignment was not who he said it was but … NIKON!
    Like somebody said above … he is 5 steps ahead … anybody notice he has 2xD700 that NOBODY else have?
    Ask him to do the same with his Hassel … hahahahaha.
    You’re the best Chase … da’best.

  27. Frank Fuhrmeister October 13, 2010 at 5:05 pm #

    AH!!! I wish I was going! So many exhibitors I’d love to see and hear from! LOADS of useful information!
    I’m curious to know what you’ll be speaking about, Chase! I’m sure you’ll mention your iPhone app… It’s really changed how most of us look at photography. Plus, even when I’m busy and not out with my SLRs, it keeps me shooting and thinking photographically/creatively.
    Will you post footage of the event?

  28. Adam Leahy October 13, 2010 at 5:11 pm #

    I was concerned about the camera too! Fun vid, it’s always great watching your adventures!

  29. Simon October 13, 2010 at 6:55 pm #

    Love it! Great fun = great images.

    I’ve subjected my D3 to plenty of unintentional salt water abuse over the last few years and it has been faultless too (yes you would want to hope that a D3 is up to the task but salt water generally takes no prisoners)

    Thanks for the sneak

  30. Frank Fuhrmeister October 13, 2010 at 7:49 pm #

    Its inevitable for ANY blog about photography to become a “gear post”….

  31. Doug van Kampen October 13, 2010 at 9:13 pm #

    Not quite greenwater over the bow there, but Chase must surely love the taste of saltwater. Next time, take a trip down to that little body of water between Australia and Tasmania; 45 foot seas, surely not fit for a sailing vessel. I wonder if he could get video in that environment. :) Awesome take!!!

  32. marcus October 14, 2010 at 12:31 am #

    “So far, nothing’s really hit me…” – nice edit into getting bashed a coupl’a times by Mother Ocean – lol!
    Thanks for giving us a larf! Nice to see the gear all held up fine too.

  33. Andreas Frossard October 14, 2010 at 12:57 am #

    Made me smile right away. Fantastic! Cheers Andreas

  34. Curro Mesa October 14, 2010 at 1:53 am #

    When I grow up I want to be like you!!! hahaha

  35. René October 14, 2010 at 2:01 am #

    Sounds great :-)

    I have a suggestion I think would be really sweet to have. At the last cjlive event I got the ical subscription, would it be possible to subscribe to a cjlive ical calendar, that allways would be updated? I know it’s a little more work to you, but I belive that a lot would use it :-)

  36. James Bunch October 14, 2010 at 5:26 am #

    Really creative man, I love it.

  37. Eirik October 14, 2010 at 5:46 am #

    Such nice wind, and you didn’t sail? What a pity. ;-)
    Anyway, what was the lens that also withstood the splashes?

  38. Andy H October 14, 2010 at 6:27 am #

    Nice post good grief my 7D died with less than a second of salt water contact (it did have the battery pack on it with opens up the battery compartment (no weather seal between the two).
    Looks like a cool place to get away from everyday life though :-)

  39. IPBrian October 14, 2010 at 6:29 am #

    The papers real wet….CLASSIC!

  40. Qua October 14, 2010 at 7:56 am #

    How do you clean salt off your sensor ? ;-)

  41. Mina October 14, 2010 at 10:18 am #

    Fun! =)

  42. Steven Fielding October 14, 2010 at 3:49 pm #

    Such committment. You didn’t really have to go to the ends of the earth to prove you dig creativity. But we’re glad you did! Looking forward to keynote. Be safe.

  43. Sam October 14, 2010 at 5:55 pm #

    i am so happy to see one of these funny vids again.

  44. Michal Fanta October 15, 2010 at 10:44 am #

    Freakin’ cool announcement!!!

  45. skc October 15, 2010 at 3:25 pm #

    i lick my d3s after every shoot. havent had any problems

  46. Jesus Hidalgo October 15, 2010 at 3:29 pm #

    That’s the coolest way to announce anything ever!
    – I was planning on going to the PDN Expo but I just realized that I don’t have the funds for it :(
    I was looking forward to it, but I guess that I can watch it online now.

    Thanks a million for that. Very cool!

  47. Greg Brave October 15, 2010 at 7:41 pm #

    I so wish I could come! But it is a long way from Australia to US…

  48. Peter October 16, 2010 at 12:15 am #

    I love you Chase!

  49. Ingrid October 16, 2010 at 9:28 pm #


  50. Rick October 17, 2010 at 9:26 pm #

    My set designers are better than yours. Yours almost looked real though.


  51. Bart October 18, 2010 at 3:51 am #

    Haha , nice vid.
    Have to watch it online , kinda long way from Holland to the US.
    But i’ve a question , how do you dry of your equipment ? Last time I was drying of my camera , the lens got condensed. And it lasted for 8 hours so that was kinda stupid. I started to think that I screwed my lens. Maybe you could make a video of it.

  52. Helmut October 18, 2010 at 4:59 pm #

    Hahaha, I really had to laugh! :)

  53. Simon October 20, 2010 at 1:31 am #

    Damn nice Video, great idea

  54. mark October 20, 2010 at 9:42 am #

    Any chance you can do a blog post on how you modified the bag to fit the laptop in!??

  55. Omar October 20, 2010 at 5:41 pm #

    “I don’t know,….. the weather??” hahaha

  56. JERO October 23, 2010 at 1:48 am #

    @jesus, or anybody else for that matter…

    my registration gives me a +1 if anybody wants free entry to the show on Thursday. Also, I’m flying to San Francisco Thursdsay night, so I wont be using it for the rest of the weekend. I’d be happy to give to to somebody who could put it to good use jerophoto (at) gmail (dot) com

  57. Dennis Katinas October 31, 2010 at 4:24 am #

    Haha, nothing like a boattrip, can you maybe do a blog item on how to prepare and clean your gear after the salty afair? I had a few and I always experiance that to be a knarly part of the job.
