I fabricated a mount for my phone! It's much cheaper. But if your daddy war bucks the go pros are pretty good.

After reading the reviews on GoPro and SpyPoint X-Cel Hunt Action Camera, I just ordered the SpyPoint on Ebay. Won't be able to give my own review until after turkey season.

Ive read reviews and people like there gopros. Im just wondering how well they record when you are 20' in a tree and a deer walks out at 30 yards can the gopro film that far away and be clear enough to see?

I have a GoPro Hero from about 4 years ago and I cant get any good clear footage videoing, but the Pictures are in HD.. they have really improved in quality, so I would go with the 3 that is out now

I have a GoPro 3+ Black, along with many other cameras and it records outstanding footage, shoots in a ton of resolutions and frame rates all the way from 4K,2.7K,1920x1440,1920x1080,1080p superview,960p,720p,wvga in various frame rates 12 fps to 240 fps all shoot in progressive, this camera is much better than earlier versons in fact they are so good that several people are modifying them to take c mount cinema lens and they rent as a compact production camera for $270 a day. Camcorder Mag Camcorder of the year and Camcorder Info.com Camcorder of the year. I use mine as point of view and a Cannon G20 or Panasonic GH3 with farious lens but most often a Cannon 50mm F 1.2(great peace of glass) and the footage from the gopro holds very well. The GoPro has very good low lite performance, has a great water prof housing so when its raining its my main camera,only draw back no zoom, but it has so many uses other than hunting and at $399 its a steal.

That's the only bad reviews I've heard on them, was no zoom!! Ive had the kodak sport for several years now, and really like it!! The variable zoom and cost is what sold me on it!

I'm not a camera guy, but if the resolution is high enough can't you zoom in on what you want to some degree when you edit the footage?

I use the hero 3 black edition on my bow and film is good. I also like the go pro app for my I phone where I can use my phone to control it instead of the wifi remote. You can also view what you are filming on your phone.
