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
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.
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
Shutter speeds range from 1/30 second to 1/500 second. Uses
standard 35mm film. Manufactured in Russia by Zenit. This is a complete
