Go pro or?

I'm interested in self filming my hunts. I'm not interested in a professional job, I just want to film what I do or see without a hassle. Any suggestions?

Re: Go pro or?

I have used a go pro mainly for second angle stuff. I think they work great for that. Before then I wore one on my head and tried it on my bow. For me wearing it on my head worked better than on the bow. The only pain wearing it on my head was I always had to keep it off center to make sure I was getting the deer on camera when shooting a bow. I have also worn the glasses with a camera in them, those worked ok too. There is tons of Go Pro footage out there in hunting situations.. if you that is the kind of footage you are looking for, i would say you would be happy with a go pro purchase. They are simple and easy to use.

Re: Go pro or?

Theres a new cam out for under $200 that actually can zoom. Its called the Ultimate Predator Adventure cam and it looks great. It actually starts with a 4x lense then zooms another 4x. I think you must zoom before you start to record. Theres a thread on the main Bowsite page that has actual footage. The company also has a side by side GP comparison and this new camera shines for 1/2 $. I Have used GP's and because of the fisheye lense everything at 20yds looks like 50.
The GP has probably the best audio and lots of accessories but its use in the hunting industry should be second angles, decoys over scrapes etc.
Im looking to upgrade with this new camera after season. I have 2 GP Hero 4 sessions I need to learn to use properly.

Look into Tactacam. I have one and love it. The footage quality is really good, but sound is not the best. They are waterproof and have several different mounting options, my favorite being the stabilizer mount on my bow.

Check out the WASPCam, they have a model that come with a watch that lets you see what you're camera does and it also works as a remote to record and stop recording. The best part, it has three lens "zoom" options and is a lot less than a GoPro
