Filming your hunt

Postby CaliDucks20 » Wed Jul 30, 2014 1:17 pm

What do some of you guys use when filming your hunt? Right now I just use a gopro but was thinking up stepping up the quality a bit. What is your guys take on this?
Thanks

Get a real camera and have someone film your hunts. Head cameras and barrel cameras will give you a seizure after watching for 30sec

I agree, it's hard to record video from head or barrel mounted cameras without needing some dramamine to watch it. It's hard to remember to move fluidly and SLOWLY while recording...

Thats funny. I currently use a small digital Samsung HC-V500 which i find takes great HD video and is easy to use in the field, but was thinking about "upgrading" to a go-pro to catch the barrel and POV perspectives. The only thing I dislike about the samsung is that its not even slightly water resistant and I'm always afraid it will end up in the drink like my phone has multiple times. :huh:

I heard that the Go-Pro 4 coming out later this year around October will be running some new hot chip and will have improved low light shooting ability. Being as we duck hunters dont exactly get to adjust the amount of light at prime shooting time, I am holding out for the 4 so that i can capture as much LST footage as possible.

For water stuff i would get an SJ4000. Basically the off brand go pro. less than a hundred bucks. pair that with a cheap D3100 kit with an 18-55 lens and you can have good footage from two angles for less than $400. (check ebay or amazon for best prices on both)

My buddy uses a chest mount for his go pro to film our hunts and they come out great. Not as shaky like the head mount and barrel mount.
"Spec murderer" put a video up on here with him running that call and it sounded great. when i run it, it sounds like a ferret getting skinned alive. -AJCsurf
