Think you’re a quick-on-the-draw photographer? Test your shooting speed vs. an outlaw from the Old West

If you're at a photography store or photo show in the coming months and see what looks like a outlaw from the Old West challenging you to duel, don't be alarmed: it's just a way to test how quick you are on the draw with your camera.

The virtual shootout game (shown in the video below) was created by Kata Bags as a way to promote its sling-style photo backpacks. In the game you must pull your camera from a sling bag before shooting a photo of the animated outlaw. Beat the outlaw on the draw to become one of the fastest photographers in the West (or East) and you could win a Kata bag as a prize.


The Kata Shoot Out game has been making the rounds of stores and live events all over the world so check this site to see if will be near you. (That is, if you have the guts, pardner.)

Those photo gunslingers out there who are too "yellow" to try the showdown live can also play the game online here.
