Burrard-Lucas scavanged a couple of wheels from an office chair, strapped them to a metal strip, and attached a two-meter monopod. Just add Canon 1Ds mkIII and strobe, et voilà, KomodoCam. Sure, it's lowtech, and looks a little like the photographic cousin to a push-popper, but he used it to score some incredible shots. With that two-meter extension, he was able to get his rig astonishingly close to the wildlife on the islands. You can see plenty more of his photographs from the trip on his blog.
