I used one on my elk hunt this year good for closeups and filler shots but definitely will need an additional camera(s) to really capture everything. Great cams that do have they're place though also don't even try filming in really low light conditions with one
we used a go pro camera for our hunt in Colorado this year and we were very pleased with it. Wish they had one with a telephoto lens. The video quality was excellent.
BigSur... I'm thinking of going GoPro.. Can you take just regular picture with this camera? Do they turn out well? I would be concerned taking pictures of game, it gives it a weird wide angle view or something like that.
Guess it doesn't have to directed at BigSur only:) Anyone else know?
It does take a regular pictures or interval pictures but one needs to be close to the subject, not having a zoom lens. Depending on the setting and if you crop it afterwards in some photo edit software it turns out well. It takes a bit to get used to the interface with the camera settings though and unless you get one with a viewer add on, you can't see or crop the picture ahead of time to see it before taking the shot. It's not the best option in my opinion to be used as a point and shoot still camera but it does have that function.
