wonder if they have it at B&H...

An inventor has designed a camera attachment for guns that will automatically photograph the target at the instant the trigger is pulled.

I also like the patent at the bottom of the page for a device that can conceal a weapon in a holster designed to look like a cell phone.

I hope he's solved the time lag between the time you press the trigger (on most digital cameras) and the exposure. It's usually half a second for me. There' s basically the same device in Metal Gear Solid II.

Anyhow, a good and bad idea. It should also take a picture of the shooter...

See also Mr. Marey, back in the 1880s, whose photographic gun (see this shot of it in action) which was used to generate his chronophotographs.
