Crushing Old Cameras With a Hydraulic Press Is Tragically Fascinating

While I usually enjoy a good crush on the hydraulic press every now and then, this one felt particularly painful. In its latest video, the Hydraulic Press Channel decided to crush two vintage Canon and Nikon SLR cameras followed up with the complete decimation of a lens (which actually puts up a pretty good fight). It hurt my soul, and I couldn’t look away.

This needs to stop. We know this thing can crush anything. But for stuff that low income people would love to have and could never afford. It could change their lives having these. It should only crush things that were ruined beyond reasonable repair.
