snusmumriken please, the issue isn't complicated if yourYeah but why not wear specially designed body armour and a smaller camera that is less likely to be hit? It seems silly to festoon Nikons around you for protection.
viev considers the historical connections :
There was from two points no chance any longer for
oldschool press photographers with Speed Graphic after the Korea war, because losses skyrocketed.
Reasons :. 1)
this cameras did not offer a good balistic protection class.
Reasons : 2)
prominently displayed press cards did not prevent the enemy from firing anyway!
On the contrary, the enemy uses it as a deliberate shot to open massive fire....
That is the story in short why 135film became a professional
First with Nikon F ( bullet proof) and Leica M2 ( not bullet proof but noiseless)
