Thread: Spy lens

  1. #1

    Default Spy lens



    Candid shots of people just living their lives and doing real things completely unaware that they were on camera. The Super-Secret Spy Lens($50), which is basically a periscope that attaches your SLR's zoom lens, allows your point that zoom lens as a "fake out" object. It uses a secret cut-out on the side and a precision mirror assembly inside to let you point the real subjects. It swivels 360 degrees, you can shoot left, right, up, or down, all while appearing to shoot straight ahead.

    I think in today's times, most people are highly sensitive to camera-totting people, especially with big dslrs. I, for one, feel uneasy when someone nearby whips out a dslr and pretends to aim building corners, but aims at street folks whenever the chance.

    just tell them "like an engine....camera upon a period of usage gets hot...so the hole is like an exhaust pipe..to let the hot air out one"
