The Inventions That Changed Wildlife Photography
The frightened animals are ahead of a creative new method of photography pioneered by former Congressman George Hillas.
His flashlight started a bright flash and triggered the camera shutter.
Not everyone is happy with innovation.
A member of the National Geographic Committee said angrily that it is not geography to walk into nature.
But the reader\'s response is unambiguous: Photo articles have helped the magazine grow by nearly 7-in two years-
The deer was captured.

For decades, the association has been innovating in wildlife photography.
By the end of 1980, engineers at the remote imaging laboratory of the National Geographer D. C.
A millimeter camera in the waterproof housing and attach it to the back of the seal and turtle.
Some of the smallest models of the society eventually marked as \"bio-cameras\" were deployed in Penguin\'s 2005 film parade.
The other version is designed to withstand 3,000 pounds pressure per square inch and is attached to the sperm whales to record their depthsea hunting.
Crittercams is customized in the basement of the National Geographic headquarters in Washington, DC. C.
Today, some bio cameras are very light and can be attached to the fish and can set up camera traps for months at a time to take thousands of photos.
With the lens of some of the world\'s most endangered, rare and remote creatures, the bio-camera comes back with scientific data and unique insights into animal behavior.
In the basement of National Geographic, engineers are revising New clever methods to capture animals in their natural habitat.
In the lab, a 3D printer tests camera parts and underwater equipment in a pressurized tank.
\"Without the people here, photo engineer Tom O\'Brien said, photography is not the same.
\"An armored little animal brings National Geographic photographer Michael Nichols up close with the pride of the Serengeti Lion.
These cameras are usually the first of their kind, and when paired with wildlife, the results can even surprise the most experienced photographers and force them to come up with creative solutions.
For example, 360 of the painted car
The degree camera did not discourage the pride of the Zambia lion from using it like chewing toys, but the oil barrels welded to it did.
Sometimes, the unexpected surprise is the way it is delivered.
Nearly a decade ago, National Geographic engineers Mike Sheppard and Eric Berkenpas built what they thought was the first high
To connect to the defined camera on the shark.
They want to get a video of cruising in the water from the shark\'s vantage point to watch a TV episode of the Great Migration.
On the coast of Guadalupe Island, Mexico, someone tries to clip the camera onto the shark\'s fin, and finally Sheppard rolls down the water, hungry sharks looking to hang on the water
It\'s not as dangerous as a fireman\'s job, says Sheppard, who does it every day, and Sheppard climbs back unscathed.
Our work can be dangerous once in a while, and you do ridiculous things once in a while, like trying to shoot sharks from a small boat with a camera.
