Anyone use a bullet cam and/or hat cam?
 
I'd like to video some of my hunts and it could be as easy as using a hat cam or sometimes they're called bullet cams. They're very small lenses and attach to your hat and/or helmet, so that everything that you see, the camera sees too. They simply plug into your existing handi-cam or cam corder.

I'd like to learn more about these cameras, before ordering one online and having to send it back for some reason.

Has anyone used one of these?
How clear are the optics?

Your experiences and opinions are appreciated.
Thank you, Bowhunter57

they are great for a situation where you want a second angle or just a wide angle to see everything. Just remember it's typically a very wide angle lens so you might not see much detail if it's a long shot. We use them a lot, as I mentioned for a second angle or a creative location to put a small camera to get neat footage. If you already have a camcorder you'd be better served and have a little more versatility if you just get one of the cheaper tree arms and mount it next to you, set it to a wide angle and push record when you want to. You can still zoom if needed or get your reaction if you want. I'd stay away from the brackets that mount a camera to you gun or bow as the shock from the shot is very hard on the camera. If you want a small stand alone camera to mount on your hat or something check out the Stealthcam Epic, they work great and don't need a separate camera to record to. I think they run about $150 and record to a memory card.

Good luck, and let us know what you decide!
