Go for the presentation material for an easier approach. Canon’s profits are down by 16%. The company blames the shrinking DSLR market, but it is safe to assume that this isn’t the only factor that may have lead to the profit loss. With most of the other players pushing innovation and doing strong in new markets like mirrorless cameras, Canon may want to have a closer look on what causes a 16% loss.
Did you ever experience an error on your DSLR? Well, get ready to meet a guy who solves these problems with crude violence.
You have first to listen to some weirdness the guy speaks out, so jump to mark 4:55 of the video to see how some people likes to cope with camera errors.
The camera getting destroyed is a Canon EOS 70D. I own a 70D, took it everywhere, from deserts to glaciers, I used it in the tropics under the rain, and in many more difficult situations. I am normally not very caring about my gear. It’s gear and is has to do the job. Well, I never, never, experienced an error on my trusty EOS 70D. Before being tempted to destory your EOS 70D, have a look what others make with this fantastic camera (see here too).
A picture of the destroyed EOS 70D was later posted on Instagram, with the caption: “movie recording has stopped automatically” – worst bug ever, the camera had to be destroyed“. Oh, dude, take it easy next time. And why destroy the lens too?
Should I say “enjoy the video”? No, just watch it :-)
Our reader Alex shot this amazing video using a Canon EOS 6D. He says:
Can watch at these ocean creatures endlessly. It’s like a live cosmos, unbelievable smooth moves, eternity and meditation. No single VFX used, this is magical nature.
I shot this short film recently, trying to expand the video possibilities of Canon’s EOS 6D. This is far from being the recommended camera to shot video, but with this film I hope I prove it can do a good job.
It did! Alex used Magic Lantern, graded in Davinci Resolve, the music is by Astrupilot, and the poem is by Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1869). Enjoy.
