what type of camera would you use filming your hunt or a tripod in stand to keep it stable and on a single area

I would want to use a camera that is tv compatable. My friend has one that he uses and makes dvds with and sells them. I want to say he uses a G5? could be wrong on that. He also uses a arm, Im not sure what kind he uses but I know that it's not no cheap one either. All and all I think his set up cost somthing like $1700. Ill get ahold of him and let ya know what kind he uses. He does all his editing and stuff too. Makes for some good dvds, looks just like the pros.

I use a sony sr42, its a hard drive camcorder meaning it saves it to a hard drive. Its a 30gb I believe, nothing super fancy It was 600 a year ago. The thing i like about it is that there is no tape or dvd to deal with. You get alot more recording time. The 30 will hold up to 10 hrs of recorded media. They also make bigger ones i think they are 40 and 60. With tapes or dvds you dont get any where near that kind of storage which is nice for hunting. Its also pretty small with a decent zoom. I also use the tree arm made by gorrilla and for 30 bucks I think it works pretty good. Lone wolf also make a good one but its over a 100 bucks. if you want top notch your gonna want a fluid head so it wont be as jerky as the others. My stuff isnt gonna make it to tv but Im pretty happy with it. If you are good at editing you could make it look really good. Its fun and challenging trying to do it by yourself but the reward is nice. You always got the hunt on film to watch whenever you want and you can share it with friends. It also can be nice on judging your shot placement. Oh yeah one thing i dont like about my camera is that if it is too cold id say 20 degrees or colder it wont work because of the hard drive but thats very rare.

If you hold your bow with your left hand, put the cam on the right so you can make adjustments while holding the bow.  This will result in less movement.  Good luck, Panman

what editing programs do you use to edit your film. what do you use to get a movie or show started.
