Angry "GUN" shaped cameras

Is this the stupidest thing they have ever come up with. As we are increasingly coming into conflict with the Police on suspicion of being terrorists, these idiots make a camera that looks like a weapon or a laser designator

Re: "GUN" shaped cameras

A few from the past

Remember Novoflex

http://www.film-gear.net/assets/images/novoflex_01a.jpg
http://www.pbase.com/piotreks/image/112395695.jpg

And the Zenit Sniper

I also believe you could get hold of a modified wooden rifle butt that attached as a support

Real fun around town with them

I actually like the look of the Canon sample although not convinced by the ergos

Looking for the silver lining, while the "Authorities" are trying to work out what it is that is being pointed at them, they will leave SLR users alone

Agree suggest this link is removed as it activated my Antivirus too.
Better safe than sorry

Re: "GUN" shaped cameras

Unfortunately, perfectly innocent sites are being "poisoned" with trojans and other nasty things, usually because they are very badly programmed at the web level.

A company I work with uses a shipping company whose website was affected in this way and it caused us a lot of hassle.

It could well be that the pages were perfectly OK when it was originally linked.

Re: "GUN" shaped cameras

the shoulder stock thing for a very long lens looks vaguely practical but that pistole shaped camera is just mad.

Avira seems to have had a few issue with false positives

Technama has been tested

Still think it's a daft idea though...
