“Car-L RC buggy gets up close and personal with pride of lions”
Wildlife photography is as challenging as hunting, which makes getting shots from up close difficult and dangerous. That sense of danger is even greater when the query is a pride of lions. Photographer Chris McLellan’s innovative solution for shooting the big cats, though, is a prime example of the usefulness that comes from a simple, radio-controlled car.
Car-L is a “camera buggy” according to our Australian host, perfectly designed for getting rare shots of dangerous predators while protecting a very expensive piece of hardware (a $3,000 Nikon D800E and its pricey lens), as demonstrated when its driven towards a group of female lions.
