This fantastic movie camera with a rifle stock was apparently made for a Vietnam War reporter, and one can only wonder why: while it perhaps makes sense as a stabilizer, you’d think it would behoove the embededded film journalist to not look like he’s packing when the Viet Cong suddenly pop up from their sub-cthonic burrows.
Either way, it is absolutely gorgeous. It’s up for sale on eBAy right now for about $1,318. As the lyrical maestros over at Born Rich explain: “No doubt, the gun is a notion synonymous to death, but a movie camera in the shape of a gun is really a pleasing idea.” It sure is, you guys. Nuff said!
