"FOTO-SNIPER CAMERA"


This is the legendary Foto-Sniper Camera, originally developed for Soviet KGB surveillance operatives. It's a unique configuration of a 35mm camera with a powerful 300mm telephoto lens and an ingenious integrated stabilization system. In lieu of needing to use a cumbersome tripod or other stabilization device, the Foto-Sniper's camera and telephoto lens are mounted on its special metal alloy rifle-type stock, which has an integrated trigger-activated shutter release and focusing mechanism. The stock is held firmly against the shoulder, the camera is aimed as a rifle or shotgun would be, and the trigger is pulled to take the photograph. Focusing is achieved by using a control knob located on the stock. No tripod, no set-up time, no adjusting for height... Sighting, focusing, and shooting all become natural, integrated movements. It's an extremely effective, yet simple, way to track and photograph a moving subject. In addition to surveillance applications, it's also ideal for photographing sporting events, wildlife photography, etc. The Foto-Sniper's through-the-lens semi-automatic exposure meter and LED indicators in the viewfinder provide for optimum exposure settings, and an instant mirror-return enables continuous viewing of a subject before and after exposure. using a control knob located on the stock.
