I may have stopped Gunpla,
Here reasons why I still dig GUNDAM!

If you are still unsure how GUNDAM UNICORN appears in 2 modes, check out the below video clip (toward 2nd half of clip). I really dig the way the V-fins split open from the unicorn.

I sure hope they make this Sazabi lookalike MS into GFF as well!

Shonon Mk.I DSLR with EF 24-85mm f/3.5-45 lens
1/6th Scale Professional DSLR model
The DSLR has a huge lens with petal hood, pop-up flash, camera strap and battery grip. This DSLR disassembles into body, a realistically screw-on lens and slot-in battery grip.

"SNAKE" was rather lucky to be the first photographer to get his hands on the new Professional DSLR from Shonon. Seems like this DSLR is intended for military use as well, though "Leo" would still prefer his Canon EOS 5D with EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM.

Canon EOS 5D with EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM

Canon EOS 5D
with EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM
Official US

Features at a glance
12.8 MP full frame CMOS sensor
3 fps 60 JPEG image burst
9-point AF with 6 Assist AF points
2.5" LCD
Picture Style image processing
Records RAW/JPEG images
Digital Photo Professional software
Compact magnesium alloy body
Connectivity options

Canon EOS 5D is a definitely a Professional DSLR with its full-frame 12.8 megapixel CMOS sensor meaning that there will be no cropping factor and all the benefits of film SLR. The 9-point AF with 6 Assist AF points improves subject tracking. The remarkeable DiGiC II chip precisely and accurately renders the colors and minimizes battery consumption. The mangnesium alloy body ensures durability in the toughest conditions. The EOS 5D though is a notch below Canon's flagship Professional DSLR (EOS 1D Mark III with 21MP full-frame sensor and 2x DiGiC III chips), but it is one that is in the same league as Nikon Flagship Professional DSLR D3.
The EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens is market with EOS 5D as a kit. This 4x zoom
"L" luxury and legendary lens suffers no cropping when used with a full-frame EOS 5D. The constant aperture f/4 makes this a fast lens for a zoom length of its focal length. This lens is also equipped with Image Stabilization (IS) gyroscopic mechanisms to prevent handshake blurs at low shutter speeds. The Ultrasonic Motor (USM) ensures a fast and quiet focus.
Any photography enthusiasts/hobbyist like myself can only dream to own an EOS 5D with an "L" lens. Though I am a diehard Nikon supporter and pledged loyalty to Nikon, I simply cannot resist such a powerful kit. I am delighted to be an owner of Canon EOS 5D with EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM.......
