comment Can a DSLR function in an environment with high g-forces?
That is exactly right Pat... I know that some pro bodies are actually capable of shooting in Gs long after the person in the G-Suit has passed out. My 3+ lb lens and body became 12+ lbs quickly, and hard to deal with...

They can become out of sync, and with enough load the mirror can fail to go up altogether. All of this happens at very high load, I personally have used an EOS 1 type body at +4 and -3 G without issue. When you are talking about 6-10G that is a whole different story, not to mention the load on the photographer, assuming it is not a remote shot. The other comments on holding the camera and lens are also very challenging.
