A camera attached to the spaceship.
This is not a theory.

I can relate. I was in Arizona for summer last year and my family and I were hiking. Since my stepmother is a photographer, she obviously brought her camera to take pictures of...the dirt...cacti...and dead deer (no, really). So while we were hiking, I somehow managed to get my foot attached to DEADLY MINI-CACTI (TM) and, since I was wearing flip-flops because they were the only shoes I brought, it hurt. Alot. So, my dad comes to my rescue but my stepmother shouts "WAIT." and starts taking a picture of my bleeding foot. She takes about 5 pictures while I am glaring at her. When, AND ONLY WHEN, she was done taking pictures of my pain could I be free of the DEADLY MINI-CACTI (TM).
tl;dr I can relate.

In most situations, like this one, if the person interferes both the person they are trying to save and they themselves will die. Either that or the person has orders or rules that they can't interfere. If it was just some soldier sitting there with a camera then I could see calling him a scumbag, but I'm sure it wasn't. You can't judge a photographer based on the photo. We have no idea what the circumstances were in which this photo was taken.

True, but I still have issues with the fact that there are journalists who decide to go to war zones simply to take pictures. I believe that if you go to such a dangerous area, it should be as a member of the armed forces helping to fight the enemy. I think that people who go to these areas simply to take pictures to further their career deserve no place in journalism.

There are jobs for everyone. Men who are journalists most likely do not have what it takes to be a soldier. Someone has to document what happens. These people are being paid to take pictures. I'm sure 100% of them don't want to take pictures of death, but when you don't have a weapon of your own or any body armor, it gets hard to pitch in. They're there to take pictures of life over there, and if that includes death then so be it. This journalist (if he/she even is one) did what any person in their situation would do.
