In the latest video in a long line of successful forced dismantling episodes, the current darling of the Youtube universe have done the unthinkable and crushed two vintage cameras. The reason? To finally answer that age old question of Canon vs Nikon superiority.
Watch the video below, or scroll down if you want to see the finished result.
This sort of thing can be difficult for camera enthusiasts to stomach, however unlike other similar camera destruction reviews we’ve covered before on Phogotraphy these guys were using non-functioning cameras and let’s face it, the chap controlling the press has an adorable accent.
So which brand ‘won’?
According the crude assessment by our protagonist, the Nikon fared slightly better because its brand name still existed afterwards. We wouldn’t advise using this argument next time you’re debating, however.
As a bonus we get to see what looks like an old Canon zoom lens put through its strengths in the hydraulic press. Despite being obliterated as one would expect we’re told by our husky controller:
“It defends Canon’s glory after that poor result on the camera side.”
If anyone can advise on exact models of all three ‘crushed’ cameras we’ll update the post.
