    Actually.... just anticipation... no need for a 1DMkII at 8fps... the image seems to have been taken with a D70.

    i think the moment is too much faster than 1/8s to use 8FPS

    yes shot with a D70, however if I am the photog I would should multiframe. Human reaction is not fast enough to press the shutter when you see the gunner trigger (if you can even see). I would start shooting when I see that the gunner has steadied his aim and has tensed the weapon against his body.
