    I review 4 different systems, pro’s and con’s, how to’s, and share some thoughts on them.

    I hope you all enjoy and are able to get some thing out of it++!

    I’d love to have the capability of high quality slow motion recordings of my pellets in flight to help me tune my guns. I’ve got more research to do, but, this is a good start. Thanks Tominco.

    Anyone interested in high speed cameras , here is what I found.  With the eagle vision kits you have two options, the casio and more the available sony rx iv and v. I have the sony 

    rx100 v.  While the 240 fps video is fantastic , the camera only has 2.7 x zoom in video mode.  What that means to you is when you zoom into you scope it is not enough.  Your 

    reticle  is vey hard to see along with mil dots.  I used this same set up with I phone 7 and found it much easier to shoot accurately at any distance.  Playback is fine,  the video is 

    clear and reticle is very easy to see on computer screen with both set ups.  I just wish the $1000.00 dollar sony was 4x in video mode.  

    The sony also has a very nice feature in slow motion mode.  You put the camera in ready mode and  only press the record button immediately after you take your shot.  The camera 

    then only records the last 4-5 seconds of time which is about 30-40 seconds of payback time in slow motion  (240fps).

    The last scope cam mount in the video is mine:

    I haven’t shipped it with rubber feet in a long time. Instead, a felt ring goes inside the metal ring and you tighten the bolts down with the felt pushing against the scope. When its tightened down all the way, it doesn’t move even when bumped hard. You can’t even move it by torquing it with your hand. Its probably one of the, if not the, most stable mount on the market for field use. 

    The system works with most any camera, but its really designed for camcorders over square point-and-shoot cameras. With a camcorder with a flip screen, one doesn’t have to have to be seated far behind the gun.

    I’ve taken a break from production for the time being, but I’ll probably start offering them again in a few weeks.

    Don’t know why it is sideways but here is what I use. Ruger 10-22 flat mount turned upside down with a 1/4-20 screw through it to hold camera. Easy to film every shot I take.
