I was shooting on a fully extended seven foot tripod the other day with my D800 with an SB800 Speedlight attached, and the tripod got knocked over. The tripod fell so that my D800 hit directly on a rock with tremendous force. The battery popped out and the SB800 flew apart.

I put the SB800 back together and it still flashes, but the foot is permanently bent so the speedlight leans at about 10 degrees off vertical. It also is not metering the flash shots right either, so I decided that it was not economically repairable, and committed it to my photographic boneyard.

The D800 still functions in all modes, but the images are not as sharp as they used to be, so it is on the way to Melville. I am hoping it can be adjusted. I worry that the entire body is bent making it unrepairable.

I am getting too old for this!
