    GoPro

    watched the X Games this past weekend. They were really pushing the GoPro cams. Anyone use these for backcountry hunt filming?

    I got one for Christmas, I plan on using it for some hunting this season. I am curious as to how it will turn out since you cant zoom...

    They are cool for filler footage but do not rely on good shot footage from them unless you are at 10 yards! The footage is crisp and as real as it gets, just not usable as a shot camera... Tried several times now at 27 yards, to 43 yards... You can't see anything but a small dot! Cool cam's though...

    My dad got one for our NV hunt. It was really fun for capturing stuff like dicking around in camp and packing clips and stuff. After our hunt we did some trout fishing and it was great for filming that since you can stick it under water and film the fish fight up to the shore.

    Here's one of our clips. Note... don't use the fully waterproof back unless you are in a downpour, or filming underwater. It has a really tough time picking up sound fully enclosed.

    Thanks for the input. Sounds like they have their place in camp. Just not the best for in the field...

    Hey guys, first post here. Newby!

    I have also been checking out these cameras for the same type of deal. I can think of several times where these cameras would have been awesome to bring along. There is a model that has built in GPS capabilities which could make another interesting additive to your hunting arsenal. If you are videoing you can see exactly where you were when you shot the crittter or whatever encounter you're videoing. They seem to be better quality as well. Still doing research though...
