I've got a Panasonic Lumix 14 mega pixel digital camera. I've only got a 1gb card, I plan on getting a larger card that supports HD 'cause I can only get around 30min of footage on standard.
It's mounted the barrel on Xtrema just before the mag cap. It's a homemade bracket made from parts off a bicycle light bracket, a bolt that fits the camera tripod hole, a nut, a wing nut, a washer and a hose clamp. Simple and cheap.
I made the thing about 2 years ago but just never used it. I got bored last week and put it on when I was rolling solo then yesterday met up with duck-dawg and used it the whole hunt.
It kinda sucks becasue I have to make sure the camera stays on (without running the battery down) and zoom it in......then press record when I first see the birds. The first video look like I was skyblasting birds at 60 yards but they were about 30 yards away. The video here was about 15 to 30 yards away.
Ive got a few more hunts left this season so we'll see what I can get.
Ive thought about a gopro but I hate the fish eye and you cant zoom it in.
