Camera Set-up…. Which One?

Camera Set-up…. Which One?

There are several options for which type of camera to use for ones hunts.  Personal preference between video cameras and point & shoot video cameras are just that… preference.  Is one better than the other? Absolutely.  The best option is the one that works the best for what you are trying to achieve.  Currently, I use both types of cameras on my hunts as well as a few GoPros and even cell phone footage as secondary options.  Basically, it if will record video, I’ll use it if I have too.  Sometimes things happen quicker than expected, in the field, and being resourceful with your equipment will pay off.  In a primary camera, my person preference is the straight forward video camera.  This is largely due to the quick ability of using the manual focus.  If you don’t use manual focus on you cameras, I’d advise to start doing so.  It makes a world of difference in the final quality as well as provides more options when editing your films.  The draw back with the video camera vs the point and shoot models is the clarity when filming objects further away or extended zoom ranges.  The point and shoot cameras tend to have a better zoom function than standard video cameras.  Does it make since to carry one of each on your hunts, probably not?  However, certain hunts, primary spot and stalk hunts, I’ll carry both types of cameras with me.  The reason is the uncertainly of how far away the best filming opportunities will be.  If I’m setting a tree stand or ground blind, I’ll typically just have the video camera as this is my personal preference.
