It's already happened D&B... There was a great shot from the Air France crash here in Toronto this summer that came (I think) from a cellphone camera. The survivor was running away, turned and snapped a photo.Originally posted by Deaf and Blind:
And who's to say some passenger on a crashing airliner is not going to turn the video camera on with the phone in flight mode? Don't matter how nasty it is do you think the station your working for would not run such footage?
If I was in that situation I damn well know I would have the thing on getting anything I can.
It's only a matter of time.

Terry E. Toller said:The auricons I used were powered by a 110 volt inverter that had a lead-acid battery. They would frequently produce an ac hum in the audio. The amplifier we used was the MA-11. It measured about 10X4X6 inches. The mag on the camera in the photo is on backward! The rubber belt that drove the take up spool was on the right side of the camera.
When cinema products began making the CP-16, they first converted those cameras by putting a 20 volt crystal sync motor in them. They were so successful, CP designed their own bodies. They later added an on board amplifier that did away with the large MA-11 and the heavily shielded cable that ran between the two. The serial number of my CP-16 is 0017...
The mag in the photo would give you 10 minutes of shooting on 400 feet of film. The camera could also accept a 1200 foot mag that gave you 30 minutes.
That camera was like using a TK76 compared to the later CP-16's. You had to use a shoulder brace which most shooters would mount the inverter/battery and MA-11 on.
