FPS Russia does it just to do it:

Ehhhh / Meh.  I don’t know, it was cool I guess?  I think I mention this every time now, but FPS Russia really doesn’t have any heart in this game anymore.  His videos still get over a million views though, and several thousand comments so I imagine the money is still coming in all kinds of ways.

FPS-RussiaAt least most of the videos he’s doing are different than “I bought the new _____… watch me shoot it and give my opinion on it” type videos everyone else is doing.  I suppose he might just be annoyed and disappointed he’s running out of cool weapons to make videos about.  The high you’d get from shooting a mini gun from the hip and getting almost 13 Million views / 22 thousand comments is something I can’t even fathom.  1 Million views and a couple thousand comments after that is probably like a why even bother feeling?

Thoughts?

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 😛  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.
