Let the below video be a lesson to any aspiring cameramen in the audience — there is rarely ever a need to run to get a shot.

The below incident happened at a Russian second division soccer match between Yenisey Krasnoyarsk and Shinnik Yaroslavl. As the Russian national anthem played, it appears that the cameraman realized he was late getting into position for a shoot at the players. As he rushes to get his shot, a wet patch of field causes him, and the camera, to hit the turf hard.

Do we get a red card for laughing hysterically at the poor fool?
