    'Go pro' camera and stalking

    Hi guys. Have any of you ever filmed a stalk? My mate is big into down hill mountin biking and bought himself a go pro camera with all sorts of different mounts. One was a chest harness and It just looks ideal to record what you're doing from the off. Or you could fiddle with it and attach it to the scope and turn it on before the shot.

    It all works out in the end and if it hasn't worked out well it isn't the end!

    A go-pro does not have a zoom so it is only good for close up work.

    If you want to see the Deer get shot you need a proper camera.

    Good point. I was just thinking of the size. My mate was showing me the footage he took with his and as usual I turned it into something shooting related.

    Have a word with John at YDS. He videos most of his stalks.

    I've done it with mine and it was disappointing, as said there is no zoom so it makes deer look miles away. Excellent for filming the gralloch though.

    I've went for a Contour ROAM Action Camera as I preferred the shape to the GoPro, plus it's waterproof without any special housing.

    There's some information and a video of a buck kid I shot with it on my blog:

    As is said above, it's only really good for close up stuff, 50 meters or less.
