After watching ehd's video I asked about the camera mount thinking this is much easier then hauling around a tripod.I got one and mounted it right on. Posted ImagePosted ImageI took it out for a test run today at the range. Not good...it turns out my hard drive camcorder is very recoil sensitive. I'm going to try a tape/camcorder next. Heck, I will just keep buying and returning them until I find one that works :roflmao3[1]: I put two shots through the shoot n see. Target is 100 yardsTest 1

What type of camera is Eric using? Is that a 30mm tube?

I would say that didn't work too. How many cameras have you tried?

Have you looked at the sports cameras from Oregon Scientific? Those are pretty cool. Thought about mounting one to the stabilizer on my bow...

It's funny you should write about the recoil. As soon as I saw your setup, my first thought was that there wasn't anything to catch the recoil shock. The person shooting the PCP guns doesn't have to worry about recoil. Cabela's sells a unit that mounts to the side of the stock. You could get it and adapt the recoil part to fit a scope mount if you have the tooling capacity. otherwise you are just going to screw up more cameras.db

Ehd used a 22-250 which has more recoil then my 223 and his camera stayed focused.I did check out the mount from Cabelas, but it only comes fits 1" scope tubes.I'll check out the camera SJ mentioned and see what happens.

Darren,This is the one that I mentioned Cabelas sells. I have one. It works but it takes a bit of getting use to since it sets out to the side instead of right on top.dbAttached File  1.jpg   26.17KB   5 downloads

Wrong one. The one I am referring to is the one above that isn't a scope mount. You could try to adapt it to fit on top. The setup Eric uses will probably work for a while depending upon the construction of the camera. But they aren't designed for someone taking a hammer to the all of the time. I would go for something to reduce the shock. I don't have the money they do to buy new cameras each time they break. :hellohello9il: db

The base is mounted into a sliding sleeve that has two light-weight spring cushioners. One in front and the other aft.dbHeath,Here is a photograph I just took. I hope this makes it a bit easier to understand. It says a lot more than me trying to describe how it works.dbAttached File  gun_mount_slider_resize_final.jpg   93.56KB   43 downloads

Mine is a cannon powershot. only does three minute videos and then you need to hit the start button again. My problem is that even with high speed it takes quite a while to load onto you-tube /photobucket etc.. I need to compress the vids before sending them.. I have about 150 rounds thru my camera, about half with the .243. It is not the greatest quality but enough to get the idea. the best is to have a video person along.. My friend has been trying for a while with video cameras, has been having the same issues about the camera blanking out .

I went to Cabels's web site and looked that mount up. However, I can't determine how it mounts to the rifle?

Velcro strap on the arm. They have deliberately photographed it so you can't replicate the animal without seeing one in person.db

A hammer? Ehd is shooting 243 with his mount and his camera is still ticking. Mine is 223 or 204.I checked around on cameras that do video. There a tons of them a couple years old in the $30-$60 range and the length of the video is only limited to the size of your memory card.

I bought an older Sony digital camera off e-bay for $40. I put my 8GB card in the camera and get a whopping 6 hours of video.Now for the real test. If you watch close you can see the camera shake/jolt 5 times. Thats me shooting :smiley-innocent-halo-yellow: camera scope mount part 2

I have to zoom before I put the camera in video mode. What you see in the video is 3 times zoom. It's not the clearest video, but I think it will be decent for filming coyotes taking a dirt nap out to 100 yards.
