Camera for self filming hunts

Post by bobby_bates »

Hey Guys,

I'm looking into self-filming my hunts. From looking at other "You Tube" hunt videos, I can say that I am looking for 2 different video cameras. One would be to mount on my bow, small and lightweight, with zoom and auto focus. The other would mount to an arm attached to the tree or treestand, small and lightweight, with zoom and a manaul focus feature. The manual focus is to be able to focus on the deer through the trees/branches and not focus on the branch itself.
I am not looking for a "Go Pro" or POV type camera, as these type of cameras just seem to be unable to get close enough to see the deer (or other animal) well enough. I've seen plenty of "Go Pro" videos where the individual shoots a deer and you see nothing but a shape in the forest run away after a shot. I really don't understand the point of publishing a video like that if you really can't see anything, but maybe I'm just too critical.
Any thoughts on either camera would be greatly appreciated.
