 You strapped a Canon EOS 5D Mark II to his chest?

 I think its safe to say it paid off....

 that's one expensive ass mistake if something goes wrong! killer shot!!!
  • + 29
 As will as being an expensive mistake It would probably really injury you having a bulky camera like that hit your ribs. But sick shot! I also didnt know you could get a chest mount for the 5D haha

 DEFINITELY one of the sickest POD's. Awesome point of view. Fav'd Smile thank you for posting such a sick picture!!
  • + 7
 awesome timing, easily my favorite pod in a long time. makes me want to go out on my bike, find a huge hill, and let go of my brakes altogether

 If you don't risk anything you wont win anything. Supersick shot!
  • + 7
 Horrible risk but great shot!!!!!

 If I ever saw a POD worthy picture...

 so much style

 Yes, I did strap a camera to AT's chest. The 5d mark II was in a custom made chest mount. Both riders are were moving very fast and riding much closer together than you would in a normal "train" shot

 when you ride with camera gear, it's generally accepted to let your body go before ever hurting them fine shiny parts

 Is it somekind of accessory pack from lone peak that you just cut hole for the lens? is there something else inside the pack to hold the camera steady?
  • + 1
 Oh, it looks like one of those radio packs. am i right?
  • + 1
 this is amazing.

 Wasnt this in a bike mag awhile back?

 Any of you guys suggesting he took a huge chance strapping a 5D to the guy's chest need to man up a little - no risk, no reward.
  • + 1
 the huge chance exists whether we're man or not.
  • + 3
 To be honest, I dont have £2500 to replace a Canon 5D Mark II, and dont fancy taking the chance of having it break my ribs and sternum.

 I feel my whistler fetish coming on =O

 I want to nominate!!!

 Try it, but don't crash.

Looks so good Big Grin

 Man....amazing shots.

 There is a years worth of POD's in that deep summer edit! so sick.
  • + 1
 dude that slideshow was unreal! and f*cking Pinback dude!? Pinback has some of the greatest music ever.
  • + 2
 James seriously? If it was a set up shot it would have been exposed during the deepsummer challenge. Dont try to downplay peoples shots because you claim to be photographer now that you have a digital camera and Photoshop.
  • + 1
 Can you post some of the repeats where the shutter closed too late, and the first guy is mid air, rather than rear wheel on the ground? I presume you didn't get it right first time!!!
  • + 1
 Yeah this took a bunch of tries. This was the best one for sure, there are others where AT is further in the air but R Dog is on his way down. Also, the wide angle lens makes them look farther apart than they actually are... they probably could not have trained any closer than this.
  • + 1
 Yeah, but can you post them, any of them where AT is further in the air, and forever close off the is it real debate? Even if they are out of focus, wrong timing....
  • + 1
 Holy shizah butt froth. I am just happening on this shot now, almost 2 months after it was posted and still peope are buggin on it. Definitely one of the sickest Ive evah seen on PB.
  • + 5
 dont flash me bro!
  • + 3
 This one makes me hungry.... Not to ride but for some steak or a club sandwich either will suffice
  • + 3
 That shit is ridiculous!! How extended on a DH bike?? Composition and subject is worthy of POD for sure.... maybe more...
  • + 3
 Awesome photo Justin, captured R-Dog's steeeze.
  • + 1
 sick shot but if u had a camera strapped to your chest how did u press the capture button ?
  • + 2
 the camera was fired with a remote trigger (pocketwizard), I was hiding in the trees..

 Shiiiiiiiit, unturndown on a DH bike, freakin' epic.

 I think this photo is awsome but my ideas think that this guy on the bike wasnt actually moving and was just sitting on his bike to the right of the jump while he captured the rider jumping past him with the canon because i doubt and one would be doing jumps with a canon 5d strapped to their chest, but never the less great photo! Smile
  • + 3
 Carrick 14 this is not a "set up" shot it happened just as you see it, both riders training into jump with chest mounted camera.. Check the vimeo vid referenced above to see how it went down. :-)

 That is a Gravity bar, not sure which one. AT and R-Dog both ride for Gravity Components, and they actually used this shot as a banner at Interbike 2011
