Back In Stock After Being Sold Out For Years!
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.
