nice shot, man.

This revolver takes a photo each time you pull the trigger.
I'd like to see that scrapbook.

Be nice if the cops had them.

Multiple questions:

I note it said "New York, 1938". Was this really developed back then?

Is this a camera shaped like a gun? If so, dumb. "Freeze! Or I'll take your picture."

Or is a camera attached to a real gun?

If so, like one of the comments on the link asks, wouldn't the recoil blur the shot?

First, dude needs a nail trim and a cleaning. Second, he has waaaaaay too much finger on that trigger.

PPPP - yes, 1938. Actually, probably a bit earlier.

Camera attached to pistol (look at picture again). Probably cable release for camera attached behind trigger.

Fast enough shutter/film speeds to take picture as pistol fired, before relatively sluggish recoil.

How many pictures of paper targets and defiantly-still-standing-there-sassing-me steel plates do I really need though?

I could see it maybe as a requirement for LEO, but even then... no.

Cameras are not a substitute for the human eye and SD law is based on reasonable perception in a fluid situation, not the actual facts in a frozen moment of time.

20/20 hindsight criticism of valid shoots is bad enough without second guessing via instant replay.

Now for training, for competition or even maybe for shoot/no shoot with a sync'd laser say, it could help illustrate where you hit and when in the scenario, either live action (with all due gun/ammo safety precautions of course) or with replicas, simunitions, etc.

There that sort of thing might have value.
