    Remember to have a good Camera with you!

    Ok everyone.

    Lots of tags have been pulled for the upcoming hunting seasons. We want you guys to have the best chance to get your photos and stories published in the journals.

    Please remember to bring a camera with you on your hunts. If your going solo use your tripod and learn how to use the timer function on your camera so you can take your own photos.

    Cell phone photos will. NOT work no matter how high the pixels are.

    We are going to pound this into your heads this year! There where so many awesome photos and stories that couldn't be published because the photos where taken with a cell phone.

    If you have questions please ask or do some searches on the forum.

    Thanks guys and good luck on your hunts!

    Trent

    We recommend you bring a real point and shoot camera at minimum! Cell phones just don't quite cut it yet, even with as much as they have improved. My mid range DSLR will always outperform my phone, always!

    I do have an Olympus e-520 but it's a little to bulky to pack around but I think if I can get some good shots it would be worth bringing alonb


    If you get meat from the store then dont criticize me for having the courage to go out and kill my own meat

    The excellent results I get with my Sony RX100 continue to amaze me. I've had it of a year now. The RX100 is rather pricey ($500-$600) but worth it. It's claim to fame is it's over sized sensor which is 1-inch! This is the equivalent of taking pictures on a a larger film format. It's also very small and compact. Loaded with function, yet easy to use. Downside? Not weather proof. Telephoto limited to 3.6x.

    I've always carried a camera with me when hunting and fishing for the past 40-years+. Tried many different models. The Rx100 is by far the best for its small size. The only other cameras I've used that are better quality have been SLR's which are too big and heavy to always have with you!

    Every hunting season you miss is one you can not make up.

    Canon SX50 gives you good options, would suggest shooting in RAW for better post processing and use HD cards. Gives you the options for quality pics up close that can be tweaked and an equivalent 1200mm of reach if lighting permits.

    Just be sure that you have your camera set to the highest resolution settings.
