BBC News shoots DSLR – Bionic Hand replacement

Slowly but evidently DSLRs are taking over news stations. I say it’s about time TV is getting nicer as well. Here’s a nice video by BBC freelance cameraman Johnnie Behiri who has been a driving force in VDSLR cameramanworld.

Not only does this video stand for great news done on DSLR but as a nice side effect it is also entertaining (especially if you enjoyed 127 hours) and eventually it feeds our gadget love too! Bionic man here you come.


An Austrian resident has chosen to have his dysfunctional hand cut off so that it can be replaced with a bionic limb. It’s the work of a Vienna-based surgeon who believes elective amputation and what he calls “bionic reconstruction” can offer certain patients with traumatic injuries the best hope of regaining bodily function.
