Sample gallery: Never really realized how fast 10 FPS was..

->> Well, I hate to link facebook here, but...

From a recent set I took while we were out supporting a MCLC (or MICLIC depending on how you want to spell it). The 70-200 could only reach so far :/ although I did bust out the 2x TC for the beginning of the next series, we had to go blow it because it misfired.

in the second photo, you can see the initial shockwave spreading out from the explosion.

Anyway, for those of you disputing weather a camera that can capture 10 fps is worth it, IMHO....It totally is.

->> On a second thought: I should have brought the 400 with the 2x TC. That would have been nice. Although I would have gotten a few funny looks..

->> Wow, now that brings back crazy memories. I was on a road in Baghdad in 2003 with nearly a quarter mile of anti tank mines spread across the road as far as the eye could see stopping a US armored battalion in their tracks. A MCLC was shot and blown by guys with the battalion. When the smoke cleared from the nearly 1,800lbs of C4 exploding, most of the mines were still sitting there. After no luck shooting a path clear with Bradley vehicles, guys just got out and picked up hundreds of mines by hand piling them on the side of the road making a path for tanks and Bradleys to get through to downtown Baghdad from the airport.

The MCLC did come in handy later when hundreds of those mines were piled up in the center of Highway 8 between the airport and downtown and an entire MCLC was unpacked and wrapped around the mines and blown. The huge explosion and resulting crater which had to be a few stories deep took out the main waterline buried between the roads taking water to downtown Baghdad.

I don't think the MCLC was meant to be used that way but improvisation is key in times of war I guess.
