I could weep. Truly, I could weep. It includes a video of a guy destroying a Canon Digital Rebel XL by pointing it at the sun through a bigass Canon telephoto without a filter on the lens, purely as a demonstration. Burns right through the sensor, damages the mirror: you can see wisps of smoke when he removes the body from the lens.

One camera was protected by a drop-in filter. No damage to the camera. The lens, however, had to have the diaphragm replaced.

*facepalm*
