Caroline Scott finds that mojo has some unexpected dangers in war zones from an interview with Nick Garnett of BBC 5Live:
“For years I have been extolling the virtues of small, hand-held devices, on the basis that they are non-intrusive, but here we have a situation where that could cause you more grief – frankly, you’re holding a device that looks like a gun.”
Garnett explained that as the country is very militarised, with guns part and parcel of everyday life, everything with a pistol grip, such as a gimbal, can look like a weapon from 100 metres away through the barrel of a sniper.
Very big, very obvious kit clearly still has its place.
