Haha nice try, but you can see the projectile clearly flying over and to the side of the camera. :wink:

I believe he had the camera right at the base of the target, and it got kicked by the target when it was hit.

What was your target? Does the camera still work at all?

I've blasted a camera pretty good with projectile and target spray. For mine it just knocked the power off and didn't save the video file. I was able to go in and recover and fix the file so it would play, but the last few frames never got saved so the last frame available was just the projectile leaving the barrel. It left a pretty good dent in the case, but it still works.

that does not look even close to realistic. Plus, when you look through it, projectile is WAY higher then the camera.
