  1. Pefect for kiddie fiddlers and terrorists! ;)

  2. Yes! I am always missing shots because it takes too long to whip my case out of my bag and then my camera out of the case. This is such a good idea.

  3. I wonder if it is difficult to use? I have been to ecuador twice and both times people on the streets warned me not to have my good camera out in the open. I can relate to the story on the story page.

  4. There are so many things I never knew I never needed! Thanks for introducing me to this one.

  5. Damn. Someone’s stealing my best ideas right out of my head.

  6. Can I still use the flash?

  7. Seems like an enormous pain in the ass to me!

  8. This would be perfect for traveling! What a great find..thanks for posting it!

  9. This is cute. No flash, I’m sure, but don’t matter.

  10. why is there a Nikon lens on a Canon body in the video?!

  11. Covert shooting is despicable…if you take someone’s photo, be up front about it. Spy shit is for wannabes.

  12. I don’t believe that Marcus. An image is the property of the eye, as long as it is seen in public space. The subject is merely the physical support of something I project over. And, sometimes, staying up front dissolves the image…

  13. I don’t think this is really about hiding the fact that you are taking a photo. It’s more for hiding the camera during transit but also making it so that it is available to snap a quick photo if you need to. At least that’s the way I see it. I would use it, but not for spying.

  14. I’m with Marcus. If you can’t get the image honestly, you probably shouldn’t be getting the image.

  15. I think putting a camera up against your face is less obvious that a bulky bag. You’d just look weird.

  16. This is an interesting but flawed concept. It is very much like when bike messengers cover their bicycle frames with duct or electrical tape. Everyone will still recognize it is a bicycle; all it does is conceal the brand name.

    I am fairly certain a robber will recognize a person using a camera in public regardless of how the camera is dressed. I don’t see how keeping one concealed within this goofy bag is supposed to avoid one from being robbed.

  17. ok so the use of this thing is…?
