Holy smokes! To hold $4,000 by 3-4 fingers is a bit much for my blood!
Notice his eyes are on the road and he's holding the camera by the pentaprism top. That model of Canon does not have a pop-up flash which may make it more secure in holding it from the there compared to ones that have that pop-up flash there. He says he can remove his glove while riding, grab the camera, shoot, and go back into the glove. Hell, I cannot even get my glove on or off while riding.
Note, no tether or strap seen here where he's preparing to shoot rearward:
B&H Photo Canon 5D Mark II camera body price is $2,499.95
Frank's Canon Camera Body
B&H Photo price $1,520.00
Frank's Canon Zoom Lens
Love this shot of his:
I was looking at the B&H Photo site and some of the Nikon's that Frank is now looking at are $7,500 just for the body. They even had some 56 Megapixel Mamiya camera for $32,490 ea. Here.
