LOL, I thought this was going to be the photo of the guy who took a picture of the shiny tea kettle while butt nekky.

Let's just hope the planespotters on this site don't get as close to their subject as the goofball in the video did!

There's a (small) craze, apparently, where you set a slow shutter speed and throw your camera spinning in the air. If the lighting's right you can get some "cool" results.

Camera Tossing

Maybe this is the Xtreme version.

Let's see the facts...it's a car race, no one else is in the road, all other photographers are off the road, cars are going by at high speed and some "gotta-get-the-best-photo-before-someone-else-does-it'll-make-me-money-I-know(lightbulb flashes inside his head)-I'll-stand-in-the-way-and-get-my-shot" dork gets nailed by one of the cars.

Is it just me or was that funny. It never ceases to amaze me the stupid shit people do.

I am sorry the guy got hurt, but THAT was funny.

What did he expect to happen, standing in the road during a rally race? Ouch.

I bet you could get some cool results if you handed your camera to a monkey and let it run around all day with it. I think this is for the photographers who can't manage to take good shots normally.

I suspect an endoscope would be more appropriate but I get your point. I'm sure it's a great idea for a few photos but making a career out of it..?

I'd probably give the "camera toss" thing a go if I had money to spare to buy a replacement body and lens when I failed to catch it... and a replacement window. Oh, and probably the sunroof on my car below the window.

Actually, having looked at the video again, I think he needs to gain some weight and get a lighter camera. He's supposed to stay put while the camera spins.

Sorry to be a nag, but my trusty Mac simply Won't accept the picture. Could someone put it in a post?
Thanks!

It's is just some dude with a camera getting hit by a rally car. Nothing special.
