Thread: Videoing your shots?

    Videoing your shots?


    I am interested in videoing some of my rifle shots and was just wondering what cameras other folk use? When the ATN X-Sight first came out I thought that this may just have been the answer to my prayers, as I could use it as a day or night sight and video the shots. However, reading some of the posts regarding these there are obviously problems with these units. Consequently I wont be going down that route anytime soon unless they get them sorted, so I was just wondering what my other options might be? Any suggestions appreciated!

    I use a go pro on a scope mount.
    not ideal but set to narrow field of view and zoomed in on the software it is useful

    This is wide FOV:

    On You Tube there a a few air gun videos filmed through the 'scope as the aim is taken and then the shot. I understand, I saw such a unit at John Knibbs, that it means that the shooter sees his shot on a viewing screen...and NOT from a standard hold as if the device wasn't fitted.

    In my opinion I don't see why a device such as this could not be adapted to take a small camera mounted at 90 degree (where the instructor would be) and then a cable to the actual equipment doing the video capture.

    Like this video. But I'd imagine that the recoil issue would be a problem with a full bore rifle?

    Here's a daylight video on pigeon. This shows what I mean about the shooter viewing on the screen.

    This is a good opening side view of the gear.

    Used a Cam on a 6x Raptor dedicated NV scope for a while.

    Thanks for the input gents. I am really most interested in filming long range shots at small targets through the scope if possible. I have considered the Ward D Nite Vision (as per one of the above vids) as a night vision device and know you can record footage on this - does anyone know if it can be used in daylight like a normal video camera and give decent quality footage?
