I need some urgent help from forum members

, we have dropped a Panasonic G6 off a bridge while filming in Italy - its dead!!  40 feet into a river....no way of getting it back

 

So does anyone know of a good Panasonic Camera shop in Rome Italy where we can buy a new one tomorrow as this a 10 day job overseas.....

Any help appreciated.

I googled and got this (it seems they have one on stock and can pick it up), you should better call before:

Don't look to their site to know if they have a G6, call them, because they never update it!

A strap is secondary on a Jib, there's a hole in the bottom for fixing, lol only playing, but I generally wrap the strap round the hand, or in that case attach it to the jib, still usefull unless you dunked the end of the jib. Anyway hopefully you got things sorted, and some cracking footage is on its way(to a paying client) I will keep an eye out for your video posted here.

A couple of cable ties would do the trick, if you dont like the width of a strap, I lugged my manfrotto twin leg thing & 501 all over Italy, not sure I would do it again though, A clamp & ball head handy for the bag, all the extra gear is a ball ache, but if you need the shots and there's a group(and some wonga) of people, not so bad.
