Vlogger Received Rocks and Bricks Instead of the Canon DSLR He Ordered

Michael Zhang, for Petapixel:

A popular YouTube personality with over 780,000 subscribers has caused a stir by claiming that he ordered a $6,000 DSLR from Amazon but received a camera box filled with rocks instead. And when he was sent a replacement from Amazon, the second box was filled with bricks.

Chaseontwowheels, a motorcycle vlogger, documented his experience in the 12-minute video above. He says that he originally ordered a $6,000 Canon 1D X Mark II from Amazon — it’s unclear whether the order was sold directly by Amazon or was placed with a 3rd party — and received a legitimate camera box filled with heavy rocks instead (you can watch his original rant here).

I was recently very close to ordering a new Nikon DSLR from Amazon (US) but decided against it because I was concerned about Fulfilled by Amazon seller ratings and damage in transit. I can’t imagine how angry I would have been if I had ordered the camera and received rocks and bricks.
