lol! It may be mistaken for a scope since the shoulder mounted look similar to a rifle. You may be taken down by SOF snipers before even taken your first shot... :bsmilie:

The one at TCW is a russian 35mm mechanical camera with a tele lens attached and rubber hood fixed to it and a metal shoulder rest. The shutter trip mechanism is connected to the hand grip. It comes as a set.
Had a couple of sets sometime back..sold them for S$300 a piece. It's called sniper and was informed that it was manufactured for KGB agents to gather foto evidence.
Went down to Orchard mall with it one day to try out the camera...sure turn heads :)

Ok, since nobody asked: how does this setup perform compared to traditional handholding and monopod?

The monopod is better in terms of steadiness as it is resting on the ground...a solid base.
The shoulder rest is marginally better than just normal hanheld.
Any movement from your body will be also be transmitted to the rest.
To me it is quite cumbersome..easier to shoot just handheld...though the thing looks awesome and unique :eek:
It's just another good looking(to some)gitzmo to add to the photogs collection and lighten their wallets. :D

I used to have one similar to this long time ago. Sold it as it causes too much attention. People are watching everything you do. And this is before 9/11
