Photographer and filmmaker Peter McKinnon's Canon 1DX Mark II recently took a tumble while he was out on an ATV ride. But rather than let this obviously traumatic experience scar him, he decided to use it as an opportunity. Before sending his camera to Canon for repair, he decided to disassembled the $6,000 DSLR himself... on video.

The teardown takes viewers through the careful process of removing the camera's front and back, something McKinnon at one point describes as potentially "the dumbest thing I've ever done." Not to put too fine a point on it, because we like Peter, but we totally agree with him.

Fortunately, everything ultimately ends well. McKinnon successfully disassembles and then reassembles the 1DX Mark II before sending it to Canon for repair. The camera maker even provided McKinnon with a loaner unit to use while his own camera was in the shop.

It's a neat video that gives you a peek inside the very expensive and advanced DSLR, but we definitely don't suggest you ever try this at home. As McKinnon notes in the video, disassembling a camera like this voids whatever warranties are covering it. In other words, if you're curious to see what's inside, watch this video... don't try it yourself.
