Toronto-based photographer and filmmaker, Peter McKinnon, is a big jerk. You won't see me saying that very often as I truly do respect McKinnon as a content creator, but at the three minute, twenty-second mark of this video my butt clenched up and stayed that way for an entire six minutes and fifty-five seconds. If you're into that kind of thing then watch as McKinnon takes apart his very delicate, and very expensive Canon EOS-1D X Mark II.
I personally have always had a propensity for taking my electronics apart. My mother learned very early on not to buy me anything that flashed, beeped, cranked, or whirled unless she wanted to see her hard earned money sprawled across the living room floor. As cringe-worthy as this video is, it satisfies my curiosity. So if you're like me, and love stealing peaks inside your most cherished and often expensive possessions, then you'll enjoy living vicariously through McKinnon's mechanical exploit. He takes all the risk and we get all the reward. I suppose we should be thanking him for this public service, and let's be honest, it would've only been a matter of time before we cracked open the tools that make up the foundation of our beloved hobbies, and livelihoods. Now we won't have to.
