Thanks Ray! Good to hear. Have you had a chance to film anything at 1000 yards yet?

Jeff

I have some footage out past 1k but not really zoomed in. I will be out as soon as it warms up here. I will shoot you an e-mail when I get it done.

Re: What Camcorder for past 1000 yards

Did anyone ever figure out what a good video camera is for long range shooting? I'm looking for something in the $300- $500 range that will have a good clear picture out to 1,000 yds. Any ideas?

Re: What Camcorder for past 1000 yards

Wouldnt you be best off with digi scoping setup? So clamp a digital cam infront of your spotting scope eyepiece... alot of the spotting scopes you can buy video digi scoping kits for them now to hold the camera- the little cannon pocket still camera i have takes great HD video aswell, and its tiny to carry around...

YouTube - Digiscoping Made Easy

do you already have a spotting scope? already have a camera? or...?

For super long range stuff, you really need the good quality lenses and hence the spotting scope... i doubt any of those little camcorders are gonna be upto it with their standard little lenses, regardless of their zoom range ... There is shitloads of youtube stuff where you can see the results of digiscoping, just search "digi scoping" in you tube... great quality... and the full vortex skyline spotter including digi scope mounting kit goes for about $500...

If you want a good HD camera within a decent price range. Check on the Kodak Zi8. I have that one and it does beautifully. You can change between 1080p, 720p 60FPS, 720p 30FPS, and SD videos. It even has 5.1MP stills, but I don't use that. The best thing about it is the external mic jack, which allows you to use a better microphone, which Flip cameras do not have. As well as an SD card slot, which allows countless hours of recording.
