Next up is to test how well the 7D will stand up to the Stanley 16 oz. Curved Claw Jacketed Fiberglass Nail Hammer....

Sorry. I couldn't resist.

but the most important question, will it blend?

The HMC40 actually pushes the button on the blender and giggles.

A hammer smash test has no real world corollary and is effectively worthless. I only care if the 7d can survive and hold together when I put it in a cage with my 500 pound pet Gorilla.

I think Barry would have easier access to a hammer and a blender than a gorilla.

Though I'm sure if your gorilla had a choice between cameras he would find the 7D more smashable.

and the point of this thread is what?

I don't really understand what is happening here.

I believe it is a concept known as humor. Probably won't fly in an oh-so-serious technical forum.

Thanks Terry. Yes, it was supposed to be funny.

Just following up the previous two "7D, meet..." threads with my own, albeit absurd, trial.

If the previous two tests didn't destroy the 7D, by golly, I've got a fool proof test that will.

This looks shopped. i can tell from some of the pixels and from having seen quite a few shops in my time.

Must be shopped. The hammer says graphite on it. So it's not even fiberglass. Something is fishy

(Note to self: When making a joke at least make sure the image and description match.)

But does the hammer run at ISO 9001? :happy:

B&H has the hammer with the kit nails in stock. They have 20 left.
Can someone explain the difference between framing nails and finishing nails? Is a 2" framing nail the same as 1.6" finishing with the thickness factor?

This thread is seriously the best thing I've read online all day. DvxHerb I see what you did there.

how much the hammer worth?

meanwhile, I'll be dropping mine from my tripod like you are supposed to be...

Can you do a second test with the $400 Zacuto ham-grip?

The Stanley is the best hammer you can buy for under 19k. Yes, its that good. I know you've heard it many times in the past, but today this hammer changes everything. We have a real revolution on our hands here folks.

The Stanley hammer just kills the 4K test chart!

One of my neighbors is re-roofing his house using one of those hammers.

Definitely fixed pattern noise.*

*I don't think I'll ever get tired of that phrase. Repeating it over & over, it defines itself. Awesome.

Smart guy. Hammers are way better for nailing shingles on a roof over a nail gun.

Why would you need a roof over a nail gun?

I've shot with both the Stanley and the 7D. It's much easier to nail focus with the Stanley.

Still, the hammer can only do constant 1nps, and that's with painful nail skipping. We are still a few generations behind untill a hammer gets to 24nps...

Those displeased with their 7Ds should put them under the hammer on eBay.

Hammers are money makers! I was told a hammer did all the killing in Blair Witch and that movie made over 200 million!
