Watch What Happens When You Microwave a DSLR Camera

If you thought Easy Mac was the worst thing to come out of your microwave, wait until you see this.

You know those days when you've got a monster cold? Your body aches, your nose is both a leaky faucet and a clogged drain, and you can't decide whether you're too hot for a blanket or too freezing to actually be alive still. Yeah, that's the type of day I had today, which means I do what I always do when I get the sickies: watch weird videos on the interwebz.

Though I (shamelessly) consumed rather questionable media during the very sporadic moments I spent awake and not asleep in a puddle of my own drool and snot, I did find one video that was both appropriate and relevant for this audience. Without further ado, here's a DSLR getting zapped by a microwave.

So, what happens when you put a Nikon D60 and 18-135mm lens in a microwave? Lots of bad things. The end result of this little "experiment" is a DSLR that looks like it just gazed upon the Ark of the Covenant. It's a beautifully disgusting mess of melted plastic and charred camera components that will surely sate your appetite for destruction.

But just in case it didn't, there are plenty of other videos we've covered here that put some of our favorite pieces of filmmaking gear through hell, including one that submerges a GoPro in liquid nitrogen or cuts a DSLR in half with a 60,000 PSI waterjet. Enjoy!

Good concept of series for Youtube, but need to improve the shooting quality.

in a world where there are many filmaker that save every cent to buy used gears, a single video like this is offensive, a series of videos like this, and advertise this is "@####" to us.
i think this is kind of video that must be deleted from web, waste of time, waste of gear, offensive form many people....

Glad I wasn't the only one who thought this.
I know of people killing themselves trying to save for cameras just to get a TOE in the door, and these boys are melting them for fun. On one hand it's cool to see, on the other, it's fairly disgusting at the same time.

Sometimes you can see a favoured website die before your very eyes.
Stupid post.

I started to get worried some time ago, once I realized the coverage of the gear and quick, shallow tips starts to dominate NFS articles.

I would appreciate to see more in depth articles, I have no problem with lower publishing frequency.

This kind of content belongs to forums, if anywhere.

As a person who shoots with D60's brother, the D80, I have to admit NFS made me cry once I woke up. This is a decadence in the original meaning of the word. Like eating a dog on the dog show.
