Basically the Killshot is a trigger activated camera in the shape of a scoped rifle that is designed so you don’t have to kill the game you are hunting.
From the Inventors:
The invention is a replica hunting rifle that is actually a digital camera capable of taking still shots and video. The rifle scope with crosshairs serves as the camera lens which is able to zoom in on intended subject and date/time stamp the shot. The object of the invention is to allow for simulation of game hunting and provide for documentation of the hunt by photo or video.
I don’t see a huge potential for this device in Australia, for starters, good luck being able to buy one of these here without some kind of permit. Then you have other issues like who the hell wants to go hunting with a toy gun that will take inferior photographs or video footage?
If I want to take photos or videos of wildlife I am going to use a quality dSLR or camcorder and not a toy. Not to mention it looks like total crap.
I really doubt that anyone would have a desire to use this for its intended purpose. Hunters are going to want to actually hunt with real firearms and non-hunters aren’t going to have the desire to hunt and if they want to take images of wildlife they would simply use a quality camera not a toy.
The only real purpose I could see for this is to train people in firearm safety but again you could use a real bolt action rifle with the bolt removed which would still be far more effective.
