So You Drop A Dome Camera While Installing It, But No One Notices, What Would You Do?

i was on a ladder ready to remount an axis dome to a height of around 8 feet when i inexplicably fumbled the camera, and it fell to the hardwood floor. several pieces of plastic skittered in disparate directions.

to my amazement none of them broke and i was able to snap the camera back together. it powered up and the picture as far as i could tell was not affected. still it was a pretty hard landing.

its my camera, and my fault, so i’m just happy it works at all.

but i was wondering what would your typical contractor do?

1) not say anything, but be on the lookout for any problems with it

2) send it back and get a new camera

3) tell the customer what happened and let them decide what to do
