As I understand it, there are probably only two of them in the whole U.S.
both at NPS, that are used for still photos. I'll bet one would cost you
$10,000. Years ago they were somewhere around $5-7,000. Of course, in this
day and age, that's not all that much I suppose.

I'm sure the movie industry has them all over.
