Gun Camera

Postby hockymvp » Wed Dec 05, 2012 11:06 pm

I apologize if this has been discussed. I am going to get myself a gift this year. I want a camera I can mount to my pump shotgun. What are some current ones that are being used?

Well it all depends if you shoot ducks at ten yards get a go pro if you shoot any farther they just look like black dots I got a shotkam and love it you can tell what type of ducks you shot at 40 yards :thumbsup:

Very nice. I have seen the Go Pro. I was especially hoping to hear suggestions besides that, so thank you!

Look into the Contour as well. I have one that i put on my hat. It seems that when a camera is mounted on a gun everything goes blurry for a second as the shot is taken.

A guy i hunt with uses a flip camera i think its a pretty good set up and mounts on any gun....Made some good film from last year only problem is the cold kills the battery and a 20 second self shut down makes it hard to get the final calling sequence and the finish but we have made it work
Ill be hyprocritical and you heard it on DHC so its gotta be true

Have you been happy with the video output from it? I was looking at the GoPro but I really like the look of the Contour, especially on a cap!

My friend loves his contours. He rides dirty bikes, mini bikes, street bikes, snowmobiles, snowboards, basically everything with it. The video comes out pretty decent. Very comparable to go pros. Obviously it isn't espn coverage quality, but darn good for self filmed stuff.

Yeah I'm pretty happy with the video quality of the Contour. I film in 1080p full HD and its pretty clear. I got some videos on youtube if you wanna check them out.

Another good option is the Rhino Outdoors Lid Cam. They attach under the brim of a hat and has a rotating lens to get the "down the barrel" or "down the arrow" view. For $149 they are a good deal and provides good video quality and is very simple to operate. It has 3 zoom settings up to 8x, LED lights to double a hat mounted light and for another $20 or so you can get a 32gb micro sd card for a few hours worth of recording. It might not be the best for motocross as you do need a hat to use it but they are fun to mess with and capture kill shots and decent audio.
