    I bought this little baby a week ago, and finally got some decent footage on it to share.
    It's a Canon FS100; small enough to fit just about anywhere.

    Shooting 8"x10" steel @ 1080 yards with a 300 wsm
    the last footage is of a 5x5 mule deer we filmed across the fence in private land. I ranged him at 1450 yards. This land also holds about 300-400 head of elk near the end of the season due to heavy hunting pressure on the mountain.

    Nice camera. I have been looking at one of those for a month or so now. I was wondering how it would do at longer ranges. For such a portable camerais seems to do fine. I will have so "sleep" on it for awhile and then maybe spend the money to get one.

    Thanks for the videos.

    You pegged that steel! Is the actual quality better? Sometimes youtube trashes video quality.

    Cool new toy, and good shooting. Would you be able to use that camera instead of binoculars effectively?

    yes, my old videos where w/ a regular digital camera and a Burris spotting scope. It worked OK, but was too heavy and took to long to setup in the field.

    not really because the screen is too small.

    What MM is the threads on the front lens. If you want to really get close look over a Sony web page and get there tripler and a thread adapter to make it work if it doesn't fit already. i have there doubler on a panasonic kind of like yours and it works great and the lens is Carl zeiss to say what kind of glass it is. should make that 40X way stronger
