Cool photo taken by “Beetle Cam”:

Wildlife photographer Will Burrard-Lucas and his brother Matt devised a remote-controlled rover outfitted with a DSLR camera to get up close and personal with elephants, lions, and buffalo. After their first trip to Africa with their BeetleCam, they improved upon the design with a sturdier exoskeleton, telerobotic camera tilt, and HD video. The men have since gone back to Africa and captured some amazing lion images.

    Given the choice, I prefer the far more passive trunk-cams and log cams of the Spy in the Jungle shows. There’s something about using your cameras to directly interact with the subjects of your pictures that seems a little to close to breaking the fourth wall. That and they’re god damn lions, they don’t know what the hell is going on, and once you start using your equipment to interact with them actively, you’ve changed the entire substance of what you’re doing as a film maker.
