    I've just released a video where I explain how I have my scope camera setup. It's a long video but full of great information

    I hope you will really enjoy this one.

    I watched this video from the position of walking the walk. As you know, I spent lots of time researching and building what was not available in order to have solid scope camera footage. You did an excellent job not only engineering the components to allow you to realize your vision but you did an excellent job narrating, editing, and capturing what is necessary for the up and coming scope cam operators to add to the video catalogs. Thoroughly enjoyed it, my friend.

    Impressive! I like low cost alternatives. So which one are you all choosing?  The Eaglevision or the SideShot?

    Both have pros and cons

    Love how simple is to remove and add the sideshot without having to fight the eagle vision to find the center for a while. It's also discouraging if during the hunt I bumped the eagle vision and then lose the center.

    Sideshot should offer an equivalent prism 75/25  And I won't any doubt about which to pick. 

    Because I have both this is what I do. I take my time before the hunt and attach the eagle vision but take the sideshot with me as a backup, something happens during the hunt and I don't have to waste time adjusting again…

    Thanks for sharing all your knowledge. It is cool that you are intimate with both systems.

    I haves watched videos and read for hours without a clear answer for a "value" solution until now.  I was leaning towards the Eaglevision because I like the simple no bracket design, but your comment about losing center is making me think twice.  

    If I were to buy the Sideshot and Hawkeye Firefly 8SE, which Sideshot version should I get?  The phone model or the GoPro Hero 5.6.7 version?

    Buy the cheapest one, after you remove the screws you will ended up with the same part where the adapter is attached.

    So is really up to you.

    Got it, I was not sure about the Side-Shot frame being different between the various models.  Probably will get the Phone version.  @ Orion: Thanks again for all the good information.

    Just happened across this post and I really got a lot out of it. I'm using the Firefly 8se as well but didn't understand a lot of the settings until now. I also never thought about adjusting the diopter to the camera and not my eye as usual. I also opened up the sides and back to allow for more cooling and access to the microphone jack which I use while filming most of the time. 

    Thanks for the very informative video
