This camera rig might not be the best to bring to a public photo shoot.
Hailing from Russia, the Zenit Fotosnaiper, or Photosniper is a manual film camera with a rather odd design. It has a shoulderstock and a gunstock outfitted with a 300mm f/4.5 lens. It’s certainly a creative alternative to a monopod or other stabilization; the camera is held and shot just like a rifle.
Needless to say, it’s no wonder why the design hasn’t caught on in other major camera companies.
