We all know that “tough” cameras like the new Olympus TG-1 and Fuji XP170 are specially designed to withstand certain extreme conditions. But what if you threw a Canon 7D into a set of hardcore durability tests? Well, that’s a whole new story.
The guys at DigitalRev “mistreated” a donated 7D DSLR camera to various tests, including throwing coffee at it, hitting it with a soccer ball, a head on collision with a truck, dropping it (using a wheelchair) from the top of approximately one hundred steps, setting it on fire, and many other atrocities that normal people should not do to their own 7Ds.
Did the 7D survive the hardcore durability test you ask? Watch the video below to find out, and don’t forget to let us know what you think.
