On sunday, I carried the Seneca camera on my walking staff which doubles as a monopod along with my mascot, Nutzo. Unfortunately at the end of the day, the camera fell to the ground, and I lost several screws, and rebroke one of the wooden posts. I had quite a few people coming up and ohhhing and ahhing the camera.
