Early this year, I accidentally dropped my mirrorless camera right before going to the venue of my parents 50th anniversary party. I was mad at myself and disappointed because I was supposed to use it for taking videos during that special event. But as I always do, when I have important places to go to, I always bring two bodies with me so that I have a backup, and this practice served me well.
My Sony NEX 6 still turns on, but it couldn’t recognize the lens anymore. When I returned home, I tried attaching my Nikon lens using an adapter and the camera was able to recognize it. So it was just the lens that broke and not the camera which was a big relief for me.
