Camera while shooting comps

Recommended Posts

What cameras do you guys while shooting competitions? Im looking for something that I could mount to my ear pro, or some type of mount I could mount to my head that wont fall off. It seems like everyone rocks the gopros, any other suggestions?

I have a lightweight Midland camera, mounted to my ear muffs with jb weld, and a velcro disc. The camera was about $40 and has great video and sound. Just remember to turn it on lol.

I've always preferred the Go Pro chest mount over the head one.

Go pro handed to someone else to shoot. The first person view is pretty worthless for performance evaluation

GOPro mounted on a miners strap.  It goes over your hat.  I put it on when I'm the on deck shooter and take it off after the stage.  It also uses voice commands, so no need to fiddle with it while handling a gun.

I've seen a few guys take an old hat and drill a hole through the brim of the hat and said it works pretty good as well.

 

I just hand a friend my cell and ask them to take a video of me.

I agree that 3rd person footage is more helpful (think about footwork).

 

If you want a low profile first person view, here's a setup I've been using:

Hawkeye firefly q6 + Velcro + Tandy leather belt clip + hat

I ended up doing a PIP for it. I elected to use the sound from the 3rd person view as it sounds "better". The 3rd person camera is a Hawkeye Firefly 8s.

Thanks!  That camera has good audio for shooting, so many of the cameras over-clip the audio making the sound muddy..  The exposure adjustment from dark to light isn't as fast as the more expensive cameras, but the image quality is more than adequate.

 

I think I'll pick one up.  I've been using a Sony AZR-1 which I like, but it's not as easy to turn on and I've missed more than a couple of stages because of that.
