There's more than one way to skin a cat—and also dissect a camera.
For some weird reason there's something incredibly satisfying about watching objects being destroyed in extreme ways. It all started with a video that sought to answer once and for all if a piece of paper can be folded more than 7 times. (It cannot.) 11 million views later, The Hydraulic Press Channel's 1.5 million subscribers get to watch them crush everything from bearing balls, plastics, and even the almighty Nokia phone.
But now, it's all about the Waterjet Channel, which uploads videos demonstrating the awesome power of, you guessed it, a waterjet as it cuts through a variety of materials you'd never expect water to even faze. In their latest video, you get to see a 60,000 psi waterjet cutter dissect a Canon ELAN 7S SLR camera, including the lens. Check it out below:
If that wasn't enough gear destruction for you, don't worry, there is so much more. Though it's fun to see a stream of water cut through the innards of a camera, there's just something hypnotizing about watching a camera's components come popping out as a hydraulic press comes bearing down on it. (That was unnecessarily and unintentionally graphic.) Here are all of the videos from The Hydraulic Press Channel in which they crush cameras. Enjoy!
