    Cameras that look like guns

    This site has 14 cameras that look like guns. I think I should get a few of these for the next time I go taking pictures of courthouses and other government buildings.

    I especially like the gunstock for the large format one at the end.

    There's one on the current Westlicht Auction's webpage.
    Get it there, shoot (ha!) someone in the right location with it and win a years long holiday on Cuba.

    I've seen the Zenit Photo sniper kit before. I think that today, if you walked around using a camera that looked like any of those, you would quite quickly have an aperture (or several) where you didn't want one.

    Well, that's one way of not being too conspicuous about carrying a camera. Seems perfect for street photography.

    Well, Flatbush already has a gentrified side and a side that's ripe for gentrification, so Bed-Stuy can't be far off.

    I saw an article fairly recently, in a U.K photo magazine, that said that the government was going to make cameras that looked like guns illegal , I recall the piece was illustrated with a shot of one that looked like a WW1 Lewis Gun, that that had been used in aircraft in those days.

    Pity the government isn't making the punishment of the crime of carrying a real gun just so horrendous that even the "hardened" will gulp. Then it needs to tackle the psyche involved. In the 50s I had a machine gun and Winchester 44 that were great replicas. No problems then. OK I was only about 12 but these days it would be assumed a 12 year old might have a real one or it soon will be assumed.

    We will soon all live in Dodge City which is bad enough but is all the worse when there's no Wyatt Earp to rely on and the town belongs to the bad guys.

    There. I have had my quick burst on my banjo as Ken Dodd used to say and " By God, I feel better for that!"

    Aaaaah the good old Zenit Photosniper. A slow 400mm lens attached to a shoulderstock.

    Not bad, but by god it was heavy.

    It was how they trained Russian shot putters. Send them out with a photosniper and a 200m bulk loader. Don't come back till you shot the lot

    The Government has practically made owning Legal registered Guns illegal.

    Shame it can't do anything about the illegal, unregistered ones
