The next time you want to get up close and personal with African wildlife, you may want to consider the BeetleCam, a remote controlled buggy with a DSLR camera mounted on top.
Friends of mine told me about it because they said this little contraption will give me them better shots than what they have been able to achieve before.
Created by Will Burrard-Lucas and his brother, Matt, its first shots were released in 2010 in a series called “The Adventures of BeetleCam.” It filmed African wildlife in the Ruaha and Katavi National Parks in Tanzania — creating amazing pictures and videos of elephants, African buffalo and lions.
Retail price $1.600. That seems pretty reasonable considering it could save your life while you are having fun photographing animals in the wild.
