You only need exactly twenty-four seconds to see this video clip.  But it's amazing.  It can demonstrate what can happen in just a blink of an eye (or in this case,  a camera lens!). 

A picture, ladies and gentlemen, is  worth a thousand words. A video?   In this case, it's worth $2400.  The scene? "Some beach" in Oregon.  Let's go to the videotape by Kurtis Hough.

Wow- I feel this guy's pain.  I lost an expensive camera recently as well, but in a slightly different way.   But this isn't about me.   Condolences to Kurtis. (you know, they do make waterproof cameras these days, buddy) .  Here you go!  At Target: 69 bucks!
