Video: When you’re trying to convince photographers that an $15,000 camera lens is a worthy investment, sometimes you need more than a list of specs.

Watch A Fool Destroy An Expensive Cinema Camera

Video: Getting a buttery smooth tracking shot requires special camera gear, like a Steadicam rig. It also requires a skilled operator, very unlike the man in this video.
