Thanks folks. Hunting, and making these video clips helps keep and old guy like me active and thinking young. There really isn't any recoil. What you are seeing is perceived as recoil though. What is happening is the camera picks up the vibration from the hammer hitting the valve stem, and the valve opening and closing, releasing the air into the barrel. It manifests itself in the video as a blur, and that looks like the gun recoiled when fired. Add in the slow motion playback, and the lowered frequency of the gun firing, which sounds sort of like a powder burner going off, and the perception is complete.I've tried shooting video with the camera mounted on a separate tripod, and there are inherent problems when hunting and trying to do that, but the thing that stood out to me the most was, the shots seem to be very sterile looking. The perceived recoil and muzzle blast at the shot, adds a dynamic to the videos, that most guys who also shoot powder burners, seem to like. I think it has a familiar look and sound that they almost expect to see and hear.Anyway, it's a lot of fun to do, and it's great to get to review the days hunt in slow motion.
VarmintAir, I love the slow mo. It's perfect. I never realizied that the air rifles had that kind of recoil (not felt but actual climb) you see in the camera shot. Very nice shooting.
