May 25th, 2018: Canon Melt on Toasted Tripod with a Side of Ash
Space rockets make hot exhaust you couldn’t dream of replicating with Mexican food, hot peppers, and Chinese mustard.
The next photo was…
This is the first camera he’s lost in 29 years of taking launch photos.

Damn. Now you've got me watching launch failures on youtube.

But the launch was a success.

All fuzzy looking. I have to wonder if the tripod fell over and the melted lens hood picked up dirt and fuzz from the ground. Also, what's that light colored stuff that looks like slug slime? I'd love to see a before photo.

Pretty intense fire will throw a lot of dirt, sand, and crap around which would stick to melty plastic.

It appears to be a $3000-$4000 Canon body plus that ain't no 50mm lens. He was deploying 6 cameras, although they may not have all been that spendy, so he had a serious commitment going on. Makes me wonder what that "perfect shot" is worth?

Wow! That camera looks completely toast. I wonder how in the world nothing happen to this guy?

It was a remote camera.
