Foto-Sniper Camera

Foto-Sniper Camera

This is the legendary Foto-Sniper Camera, originally developed for Soviet KGB surveillance operatives. It's a unique configuration of a 35mm camera with a powerful 300mm telephoto lens and an ingenious integrated stabilization system. In lieu of needing to use a cumbersome tripod or other stabilization device, the Foto-Sniper's camera and telephoto lens are mounted on its special metal alloy rifle-type stock, which has an integrated trigger-activated shutter release and focusing mechanism. The stock is held firmly against the shoulder, the camera is aimed as a rifle or shotgun would be, and the trigger is pulled to take the photograph. Focusing is achieved by using a control knob located on the stock. No tripod, no set-up time, no adjusting for height... Sighting, focusing, and shooting all become natural, integrated movements. It's an extremely effective, yet simple, way to track and photograph a moving subject. In addition to surveillance applications, it's also ideal for photographing sporting events, wildlife photography, etc.  The Foto-Sniper's through-the-lens semi-automatic exposure meter and LED indicators in the viewfinder provide for optimum exposure settings, and an instant mirror-return enables continuous viewing of a subject before and after exposure. Its split-image focusing allows for excellent image sharpness under varying conditions, and its multi-coated achromatic lens provides for optimum light transmission and exceptional photographic imagery. Shutter speeds range from 1/30 second to 1/500 second. Uses standard 35mm film. Manufactured in Russia by Zenit. This is a complete system, which includes the 35mm camera and 300mm f/4.5 telephoto lens, detachable shoulder stock/pistol grip device, a 50mm f/2.0 Zenitar M2 lens, assorted optical glass filters, filter adapters, neckstrap, rubber eyecup and hood, tools, manual, and fitted carry case. Very limited quantity available.
