I thought the branding and orange colored bits on the camera betrayed any "stealth" usage, but if it was still under development and being used only in training, perhaps they are not as strange as they seem at first glance. Be certain to follow the links provided in the article, especially the one to <a href="http://www.nikonweb.com/dcs425/" target="_blank">NikonWeb.com</a>, for additional information and photographs.</p>
