I came across this image a few days ago on Facebook and found out some more information on it today, thought it was very fitting of The Urban Sniper and worth sharing.
“The DORYU 2-16 pistol camera is not a novelty gun nor an art. Made in ’50s Japan, this 16mm police-issue camera equipped with a Cine-Nikkor 25mm F1.4 lens was used to snipe proof of crime and capture demonstrating protestors. It looks dangerous, but its burning magnesium powder and hot temperatures actually made it physically riskier for the cop behind the gun cam sight.”
