NSFL: Camera Death.
There’s a new trend on YouTube these days: making parody videos of all the horrendous tutorials we find so often there. They can be of someone holding a camera like it’s in the middle of a magnitude 7.6 earthquake; or what about the ones where the uploader goes off for about seven minutes on the premise of why he’s making the tutorial? And then there’s the videos that just… give plain bad advice in general. This video hilariously depicts exactly that by teaching you how to clean a Canon 5D – by submerging it into a tub of water and soap.
Keep in mind that this is a complete joke, though you’ll still probably find yourself screaming at the screen watching the atrocity unfold. In defense, the camera does clean up pretty well. But either way, I think it goes without saying that you shouldn’t try this yourself. Don’t ever actually submerge a camera into water, even with everything turned off. It doesn’t matter whether it’s supposed to be weatherproof or not; don’t do it. If you do need proper guidance on maintenance and cleaning, check out this video from Canon. And don’t worry; it’s filmed on a tripod and she won’t ask you to like and subscribe to her page at the end.
