Filming Hunts


Gorilla’s Tree Arm is great for small camcorders!

When I first started filming I first asked myself where do I get started, what do I need, and where do I get the info I need to learn. The first thing is do your homework check out what other hunters use, what equipment are they using and where do I get that equipment. By doing research and asking a lot of questions, I found out what kind of cameras I would need for the kind of hunting I do. If you are looking for some good deals on cameras you can check out, Campbell Cameras website, and B&H photo , also check out your local camera stores.


My current set up is a Sony HDR AX 2000

Besides a camera you will also need some attachments,maybe a shotgun mic, or wireless mic set, camera tree arm, camera light, a good tripod and a great fluid head. Manfrotto is one of the top selling companies on the market, with consumer pricing that won’t break the bank. (very reasonable) For tree arms you can check out Muddy Outdoors and Third Arm tree arms. For cheaper versions you can look at Primos and Gorilla. Next up a shotgun mic Azden makes a good mics and here’s some others you might want checkout Rode, Audio Technica, Sennheiser, Sony and Samson. All of these companies also a wireless mic sets. Wireless Mic sets really help you pick up audio of the hunter, especially in windy conditions.
