Self Filmed Hunts
My video was filmed with the canon vixia hr500. I got the a big package for around 450. but this came with a lot of extra stuff. if you bought just the normal camera package I think it is somewhere arouch 300 ish. I love the camera. fairly simple to use. really good zoom range. and excellent quality. the youtube video doesn't do the camera justice. I am not sure why but I lost a lot of quality on the youtube upload. it looks a lot better on my computer in the video editing software. but I think its the best bang for your buck camera.
I am looking to purchase a handheld camcorder for the use of self filming hunts without dropping a fortune. I'm looking for your thoughts and opinions on camera options for under $300. Besides low light, what are some other features I should consider. I realize that price range has its limitations, but I'm not trying to be the next Drury Outdoors cast member. I want the best I can get for the money so I can tinker with editing and putting footage together. I have a go pro I use for wide angle mounted above me in stand and or on the ground for point of impact shots. I also have a stabilizer mount for cell phone on bow. I currently am using an old digital camera on my oak sturdy semi pro camera arm.
Thanks for any thoughts or input.
