    Only in America would you get shot for something like that "gun" kamera.

    I had a Sony Mavica floppy and CD camera and these were pretty cool. If you had a pack of CDs you never ran out of storage. The floppy disc was before CF or SD cards were common. The ONLY problem was that they couln't do burst mode.
    Most CD/DVD drives did not require an adapter.

    I thought you did? I thought that was the whole point of Texas.. Some of this is really good. Do you guys write it? Or does someone else write it? I think this stuff is good, but I'm old, I don't know what's funny anymore. But I have a PR friend and she's young and she's sharp as heck too.

    I like watching your videos because they have interesting topics, but this unfunny "banter" absolutely terrible and cringe-worthy.

    I swear I'm only being a little bit of an ass here, but Tony? Empty the "clip"??? C'mon man. It's a magazine. A clip is an entirely different thing. It's not mincing words. It's knowing guns, and not knowing shit about them.

    They forgot to mention the pen cameras that were so terrible. Although, ViviCam is still worse.

    The Novoflex system allowed you to add many kinds of attachments to go from photographing tiny flowers/insects/animals to recording African wildlife (at a safe distance). This system featured the Follow Focus pistol grip, and the longest lens in the system was a 640mm f/9 piece of glass. Aim the Novoflex at security forces unfamiliar with this and YOU would be in THEIR gun sights toot suite. This was one of those "If I had a Million" wish list items, since Novoflex was up there with Leica in price. As for the Photo Sniper, I always associated it with the KGB or STASI, taking photos of incoming visitors (spies!).

    I had the EOS Elan IIe and the EOS Elan 7e and the eye controlled focus was perfect with and without eye glasses. You did have to calibrate it correctly though. I would buy a high end camera that had it. Of course, today, most high end cameras have so many and better focus points, eye controlled focus is not needed anymore. Unless you own the 6D like me LoL.

    I had the Canon EOS Elan IIe and it's eye control focus worked perfectly for me, even when wearing my eyeglasses.

    There were at least two or three times I laughed out loud. Chelsea should do a photography based stand up routine.

    A used Mavica Floppy was my first digital camera… I loved it. The noise, the Rattle… 6 pictures per disk…
