    Default Filming your hunts

    I've seen lots of pictures of your hunts and mounts, they're great.

    I would like to film an upcoming bear hunt of mine and 5 friends.

    I'm thinking of a Mini-DV palm-type camera.

    Any thoughts, advice, experiences on brand, model, or features?

    Our hunt will be a wilderness hunt so weight is an issue.

    Thanks all!

    Default link to check out

    Here's a link to a pretty recent discussion on this same topic.

    Features to look for include optical zoom power (pay no attention to digital zoom power), image stabilization, and connectivity to your computer for editing if that's what you are wanting to do. Mini dv is the best format to go with.

    There are a lot of good cameras out there for under $500. Canon, Sony, and Panasonic are all good choice.

    If I am not mistaken, you mentioned the wireless mics. Any brand you've had luck with?

    Jimmy,

    I'm still researchingthe wirelress mics. I haven't used them in the past, but I'm taking the plunge to a much better camera, so wireless mics will be part of the mix.

    Brands to look at are Azden, Rode, Sennheiser, Audio Technica, and Sony. Rode and Sennheiser are the most expensive. I've found some good resources for researching. I'll go through what I've found and post later.
