War-Inspired Photo Gadgets
Using Gun Mounts to Shoot Photos Is Dangerous in Combat Zones

By: Going Like Sixty (Superstar) Feb 2, 09

If you’re going into a combat zone as a photographer, you better be prepared to get shot at, especially if you use a camera mount like Jeff Duran. Jeff is a National Guardsman currently serving in Afghanistan. Staff Sgt. Duran says during training he was shot by “friendlies” because when he aims his camera, it looks like a weapon. “That’s why we train,” he explained. Soldiers around him need to know he is a photographer, even if the enemy doesn’t.
