While words like “shoot” might sometimes get you into trouble on certain social media platforms, this is a device that blurs the lines between its two typical uses. This is the Photopistol. It’s a pistol grip for mounting your camera two with a “trigger” that fires your camera. It’s designed by the user TH1813254617 on Printables, and it actually looks pretty neat – and perhaps more useful than a mere gimmick.
It’s inspired by the Soviet-era Photosniper and designed to be 3D printed. It’s also modular, allowing you to print different parts of it in different colours to suit your personal aesthetic. Below is a typical pistol grip with a trigger, and above is a mounting point for your camera with a 1/4-20″ thread. It’s not going to be to everybody’s tastes, but I can see where a mount like this could be advantageous.
