Have you ever wondered why it costs so much to ship packages internationally? Well, if you use DHL, it may be because they take their packaging to the extreme.

Owners at a camera store placed an order for your standard Nikon charger, a NH65. Now, here in America when you order a small product you expect it to arrive in a small to medium sized box. What actually arrived at this camera store was beyond normal, bordering on hilarious. I could explain it further, but just watch the video…

A single Nikon charger, inside of a medium sized box, on top of a pallet, wrapped in plastic. While I am impressed at the lengths taken to make sure that this charger arrived in working order, this has got to be some sort of joke.

The craziest packaging that I have ever experienced was when I received the Canon 400mm F/2.8 to review from B&H. That was a box within a box, with the lens inside of what looked ot be a bomb proof pelican case.But then, that was a $13,000 lens. This was a tiny battery charger…

Raise your hand if you are sitting here shaking your head…
