Here, here.  We use our camera systems to take photos in situations that
are inconvenient, expensive or impossible to recreate.  We want to be
confident that they are working properly. We need to avoid equipment
downtime.  Avoiding unnecessary knocks and shocks and reducing wear is
therefore a fundamental element of a photographer's craft and should be
a source of professional pride, not something to be apologised for.  Its
not bricklaying equipment.
