Now, this camera is a proper 'shooter.' Kidding aside, this is the Zenit Photosniper FS-12 and a it's one-of-a-kind piece.
Originally designed for soldiers to shoot reconnaissance images with during deployment, the Photosniper slowly transitioned into a hobbyist camera for civilian use after newer means of recon imaging were made available. Soldiers then can conveniently use this SLR camera to take photos of targets that are in transit or those far away. The Photosniper was first made by GOI and later by KMZ. One of the most identifiable features of the Photosniper was its gun-like appearance and operation — all thanks to its rifle stock and dedicated trigger shutter.
The Photosniper actually comes in quite a number of models but all with the same distinct look with some models bearing more features than others. Whether for work or play, you best be prepared for some awkward looks from bystanders whenever you whip out a shooter of this caliber (sorry, pun intended.)
