    I have to admit I didn't know what camera tossing was.. or the fancy "kinetic photography" thing either.

    Notice the shadow in the following photo.. pretty much explains it! :eek:

    The problem would be 'camera missing' when it comes back down :biggrin:

    I love tossing other peoples cameras (and most anything, really).

    Personally I think it is silly. The chances of getting a good shot are low but the chances of destroying a camera are high. I like the idea of experimenting but this makes no sense to me.:confused:

    I have seriously considered tossing my windows 8 laptop out the window several times, but never my camera :)

    Yeah, any body can do that with a digital, but try it with an Argus C3.

    Maybe with a GoPro - just pull a frame out of the video. :) Wide angle lens, drop-proof housing, and 30fps capture so you can grab a frame from any place in time.

    It's better for the gear to toss a dwarf who's holding the camera.

    Looks like fun, if you wanna take one last pic with your camera, guess it´ll be a big thing among canoners.

    I don´t think Grumpy are into it.
