The motor is the most awesome piece of electronic engenering yet devised
anywhere in the world.  It does at least 12fps, auto bracketing, auto
rewind, decisive moment indicator so you never miss THE photo agian...all
this while being entirely invisible...No living soul has yet to see this
marvel, but it works better than any other attatchment for the R8.  No
failures EVER reported...hell the batteries never even die.....

Now after it is released in late 2000 this all may change.  ;)
