Camera Gun Helps to Take Fast Action Shots (Oct, 1938)

Camera Gun Helps to Take Fast Action Shots
In shooting fast action photos, such as birds on the wing, it’s rather difficult to catch the scene quickly through the view finder of a miniature camera because the sighting radius is practically zero. With this contrivance you aim the camera in much the same fashion as you would a shotgun. Pulling the trigger trips the shutter. Be sure that the block supporting the camera is exactly at right angles to the stock. Before you chance any critical shots take a few test photos to make certain that any object which is in the line of sight over the gun is included in the field of the
camera lens.
