canon

Done by the greatest Asian guy with a British accent to ever review cameras:

Poor guys have to practice IPSC with airsoft. :/  Oh well as long as they’re having fun I guess.  Definitely a cheaper way to work on the fundamentals.

To me, the best part about IPSC is seeing the ridiculous scenarios they come up with.

I’m a Canon guy (I’ve got a Canon 60D), and not because I don’t like Nikon, but I’ve just never seen a reason to buy one over a Canon.  I definitely have to start doing double taps with my camera, just because.

Thoughts?

The lengths people will go to get footage… So much for your dignity:

You can buy it over at Strikemark for $30 if it tickles your fancy.

I’m holding out for a Glock rail mount that will let me shoot while I shoot with my DSLR and 1200mm anti-aircraft Canon lens i’m planning on buying.  Here’s a mockup for your viewing pleasure:

Side note:

Strikemark.. for the love of God, fire your current web guy.  This shit right here.. not acceptable:

Yes 3.68MB with a 1869×1869 px resolution, you’re reading that correctly.  All their product shots are 24 bit PNG files with transparency. *tactical facepalm*

Anyone else got a hankering to shoot while they shoot?  Perhaps a TV camera attached to a Deagle is your combo of choice?

In Double Exposure:

Having just bought a Canon 60D  2 days ago, I thought the video was especially awesome.  I’m glad the good guys are armed with Canon’s :P  Derivative of the Battle At F-Stop Ridge mind you, but still awesome.

There was no Canon AR-15 rifle, and unfortunately no 1200mm Anti-Aircraft lens was used either.

Thoughts?

As I like to call it a “Modern Sporting Camera”

The shoulder support with that big of lens would probably be welcome!  The magazines could be extra batteries for those long shoots.

Just don’t take pictures or video of the cops doing something wrong using this thing.   It’s a definite way to get yourself shot.

Also, probably a touchy subject still.. but this is definitely not recommended for use in Baghdad where cameras already resemble AK-47s and RPGs.

A lot shorter than, and not as entertaining as the first Cardboard Warfare… but still pretty decent.

Not gun related, besides the fact it looks like something that could take down a plane:

  • 36 pounds
  • 33 inches long
  • Minimum focusing distance of 46 ft

I’d hazard a guess that pointing that at a helicopter like they did in the video, would get you laid out on the ground (or at the very minimum hassled) by the police more often then not. People seem to call 911 for practically ANYTHING that looks suspicious nowadays.

Lots more info in a review of the lens – HERE

The price tag on this used one is $120,000 !
