This CNN video is a powerful story about an Egyptian photog who felt his weapon was mightier than the sword. May he RIP.

That's the hard life of a photojournalist. That man had tremendous balls to go out and shoot a conflict as large as the one in egypt. My earnest respect and very sad that his mother had to see that video.

Yikes!  :(
I shoot with a Camera Obscura with an optical device attached that refracts and transmits light

He was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
