Go Pro HD Camera
« on: September 30, 2012, 01:22:27 PM »
Anyone use GoPro to film hunts? I see the 'Naked' version is already a discontinued model and hem seem to have a dizzy array of options on their web site. I was just thinking of the camera set up where it would be waterproof. I won't do any diving/swiming. I just need a good camera to film a hunt in col to cold temps with a mix of rain/snow at times.

I have Smokin Rack Products Flex Cam as well as a Hat Cam to use with my Kodak Playsport (waterproof). However, I have found it tricky to have the camera looking at what you are looking at.

Maybe the GoPro with the Head Strap is the way to go? They have a new Outdoor Model our 11 megapixals but $300

How say ye?

Been thinking of getting one of these also, Flint.   Seen some footage and the reviews are good, and my old VHS-C vids don't look very good when transferred to digital.    The footage on their commercials sure looks good, but you can't go by that.    A little pricey, but probably worth it.

They are good, we use a couple at the TV station for POV (point of view) cams, have taken them up in planes, choppers, we even through one in the water on a paddle fishing line.  I have a smaller and cheaper one I use for personal use., more streamline and waterproof without having to buy the case, and has a viewfinder on it, the GoPro requires an external viewfinder for another $100,  it comes with a good assortment of mounts as well, I have a bow mount from a small Midland action cam I had, it replaces your stablizer. I will get a pic of the set up.

friends brother has three of them and they are well worth the money if you want to film.  They can take a lot of shock which is good.  we strap one to the bow facing us when were hunting.
