Behind the Camera ID by tanikel Behind the Camera ID by tanikel
Combat Camera-ing like a boss. Gotta thank the bearded ginger for taking photos of the camera person while they're capturing video. =p


This was my first Air Insertion mission with 4-4 Cav. back in October of 2011. The body armor for the camera is awesome when you're having to leap on and over grape rows. That poor camera got beat to hell out there.

That gear looks like it weighs a ton!

Meh, I think mine ended up being around 40lbs.  Never weighed it with everything lol.

So much for the couch potato exercise program! I knew it had a flaw!Hanging Out
 
Seriously though, my days of lugging stuff are done, I'm arthritic as hell. The thought of lugging 40 pounds of junk all day makes me cringe lol.

That camera is very eye-catching with that armor. I use the same camera, & I was wondering where you purchased the camera armor, & how well it work shields the camera body? :)

It's actually issued to me from the Army for my work camera, I've yet to buy one for my personal camera. But this looks like it could be what we use.

It does an awesome job at shielding the body! I definitely wasn't kind to the poor beast - I thwacked it on everything and landed on it a couple of times. :lmao:
