Camera arm choice?

This year I am going to take the plunge and start taking a camera into the woods. I'll just be using a Canon Power Shot SX20. Basically looking to add another challenge to the already challenging archery world. Not at all planning on creating my own hunting channel, etc. This is basically for myself to watch kill shots and take pictures while in the tree.

I see a lot of guys like the Muddy camera arms. Anybody using the 'basic camera arm' from Muddy?

If not, what are you using and do you recommend it?


Thank you very much!

One of my hunting buddies is in good with Fourth Arrow. He also switched o we from Muddy. Their Carbon Fiber arm was a big part of that. Extremely light. Most of our hunting spots are better than a mile hike in. It was a no brainer to shed the 6+ pounds. Fluid head was smoother as well.

For me it the was the mount and base.. the fact that its so much smaller and easier to set up. you can virtually set it up in any scenario without much work. I also love that the bases are relatively cheap.. I am working on getting one for each one of my sets.. that way you only have to haul in the shoulder and the actual arm.

If you are up to doing it yourself, I used this video as a guide and build my own.


It works well for me.
