Anyone know of a good barrel cam for wing shooting? I have a Go Pro, but the wide angle lens makes the birds look like mosquitoes that are a hundred yards away. I would like a cam that would give more of a zoomed view of the bird. Anything like this out there?

I am not sure if you are joking, or are you just that rich? LOL! It reminds me of what Queen Marie Antoinette said demonstrating her extreme disconnect from common people. When she was told her people were starving for lack of bread, she said, "Well, let them eat cake".

I use my GoPro 3+ Black on UHD Narrow. I use the clamp mount and clamp it on the Plug Screw. Has worked pretty good so far for dove this season. Helps me to remember to follow through on the shot also.

It's an ingenuous device to say the least. If I could see an example of high quality video that is not in slow motion and has good sound, I might consider it.

Personally, I don't think videos shot with a camera on the barrel are worth a darn. The video is all shaky, the gun jumps when you shoot, and the ducks looks super far away. I hate to say it, but I agree with Garrett. Get someone to record with a real camera, or don't record.

I have a "Lid Cam" that I've used several times dove hunting and the video was pretty good.

Thanks. I have looked at some videos made with the lid cam of wing shots. It's pretty nice, but not a whole lot different then what I am getting with my gopro with my head strap. The youtube videos I watched were not the best, but I blame the hunters and video editors for that. I find that most of the cameras can do a decent job if the hunter has the presence of mind to remember they are filming while hunting. I bought a cheap GoPro knock off (SJ4000) for $60 because it had a 4X digital zoom and wifi. Gave it a try this weekend. Tried mounting it to my barrel with a bicycle mount (came with the camera) but the mount was unstable and could not handle the recoil and the camera would end up point up after each shot. Here is a video I made.

SJ4000 Texas Dove Hunting Demo

I also won an ebay auction for Campark HD Waterproof Sports Rifle Camera. Got it for $37, but it's coming from overseas, so it won't be here for two to 4 weeks. The camera is shaped like a tactical flashlight and it came with a mount to attache it directly to the barrel in a much more secure way then any of the gopro mounts I have looked at. I make a video review of it when it gets here, hopefully before the end of dove season. Here is a picture of it.

Okay. Let's get this out of the way because there seems to be a little confusion about what my question was in the OP. The problem here is that I did not ask " How do I produce a high quality professional hunting video?". My was question was, "Anyone know of a good barrel cam for wing shooting?"

There is no question that hiring a professional videographer with thousands of dollars of equipment to film your hunt will produce a high quality video. No one here is trying to argue against this. I am not sure why some people on here seem to want to fight in favor of a point that no one is arguing against. I don't think anyone here would be stupid enough to disagree with this point and the fact that you keep pushing this, abundantly obvious to anyone who has a brain, point; can only mean that you think the rest of us are stupid. I find that a little insulting, not only to me, but also for the rest of the people that have commented here and kept on topic. So, for those of you that seem to want to push this point (even though it is not the subject of this thread); YOU WIN! You are right! happy3 cheerleader partyon555

Now, please quit insulting the rest of us and either stay on topic or don't comment at all. Thank you.
