French Army Photographers Are Good at Not Attracting Attention


Photographer Paul Grayson recently attended the bi-annual Eurosatory 2018 defense and security expo in Paris, France. While there, he caught a glimpse of stealthy French military photographers wearing ghillie suits and holding Nikon and Canon DSLRs.

“The French Army reconnaissance team duo still use ‘traditional’ Nikon body and telephoto lens combos,” Grayson tells Nikon Rumors.

“The sniper spotters of the Gendarmerie’s GIGN [the elite national police tactical unit], on the other hand, use Canon,” Grayson tells PetaPixel.

“The reconnaissance team image makes me think: ‘Nice to see the French Army continuing to include our favorite “old technology” in their reconnaissance kit’, Grayson says.
