Maybe she caught him taking pics of other women, presumably hotter looking ones.

She must be some kinda monster with club feet, looks like she stomped on the screen a few times for good measure!

To be honest I've had nightmares about my GF bashing up my gear after a fight. Scares the crap outta me as much as  knives and scissors!  :o
Move along nothing to see here!

Not a good thing when your spouse/SO expresses anger/frustration with acts of violence.

I agree with the other posters.  Time to separate and perhaps have a protective order in place.
I shoot with a Camera Obscura with an optical device attached that refracts and transmits light

Maybe his wife works for Nikon, and she hates competition ... especially when the competition gets better image results.  ;D

Why jump to the conclusion that it was irrational?  Maybe he deserved it.
No man deserves this. This is more worst than having his wiiwii cut off  :-\

The damages seem she slammed that combo more than one.
Maybe it is time for him to cool off. He might loose the wiiwii too. She seems to be stronger. He couldn't even protect his baby.
But joke aside, I've seen cars and TVs in bad shape because of wives. Love is in the air!

I guess he wasn't taking enough pictures of her. Plain and simple.

Is it only me, or does that camera look too damaged to have been simply thrown to the floor?

To break off the entire top of the camera housing would take some considerable force I would have thought.

She really would have had to thrown it quite hard I would think, not simply picked it up and dropped it.

Reminds me of a country song, "The Day My X-Wife Met My Girlfriend- It Was the Worst Day of My Life".

And hopefully it is attached to you too, and will remain so!

Hammer throw.

It would be interesting to follow up with him in a year to see his status.

Personally, I'd be gone.  Even if I had done something wrong, I would fear for my life.  Everyone has to sleep sometime.

Hi Folks.
I'd like to ask first "Russian Shot Putter?"
I'd also like to add I've been caught up in one of these rows when I was about 15. Mother was worried about dad's health and he promised, as in swore blind he had quit smoking for the third time.
She caught him again and a row ensued, first thing thrown at him with the words "you keep smoking you won't need this" was his alarm clock, the next thing to hand was the 70-210 FD fit lens, as it came towards me on the back swing "and if you can't walk you won't be able to use this" I removed it from her hand and she threw a handful of air.
He quit smoking and died at 88 earlier this year.  :'( :'( :'(
She loved him to the end and cared for him 'till his dying breath quite literally, holding his hand!  :'(
So not every fit of pique is due to infidelity etc, some are from pure love and the thought of loosing him was breaking her heart!
So I don't necessarily see a divorce in the guys future though I wouldn't rule it out!

Cheers Graham.

Sounds like my X girlfriend.  Seriously scary. 

I did the time without doing the crime.  Got tired of doing the time and moved on to a non-abusive relationship, and life is great.

I am so sorry to hear that some on this forum have been concerned about the potential for something like the behavior mentioned in the CL ad to occur in their own lives. I believe that anyone who does this type of destruction to their own or someone else's property in a fit of anger has serious anger and emotional issues. I'm not qualified to diagnose the specific ones, but the specifics don't matter.

What does matter is that this type of violence against property can easily escalate to violence against people.

If anyone on this forum or anyone you know is with someone with this type of anger/emotional issues, please get out.  Call a hotline, a friend, or the police. Protect yourself. The person doing this does not have emotional maturity but he or she may be great at manipulating your emotions. Do not let this person rationalize his or her behavior or blame it on you. This type of behavior is completely unacceptable.

This book is on my reading list and comes highly recommend by a writer at the Washington Post: Gavin de Becker's The Gift of Fear and Other Survival Signals that Protect Us From Violence
