    I don't have any experience with either of those but one I'm looking at is tacticam. I believe its a camera and mount built into one. If anyone has experience with that I'd be interested in how it stacks up to the gopro options as well. This should be an interesting thread.

    Check out Orion the Iguana Hunter’s setup too. I don’t have that one myself, but it looks as good or better than anything out there, and very reasonably priced.

    This video is with the Sideshot with the Orion  adapter for the Firefly 8SE.

    The target is at 100 yards with the scope at 27 power

    Scope is an Athlon Ares BTR 4.5-27X50

    Less expensive than the Gopro and I think it takes a decent video. 

    If I wouldn't have had a Sideshot already I would have bought the OrionCam setup.

    The picture quality is better than the Sideshot because of a higher quality prism.

    I've been using a Tactacam 5.0 with the FTS (Film Thru Scope) attachment. You can see some video on YouTube. Search Gerry Reba & click on videos. They're easy to set up & not as cumbersome or expensive as other setups. I'm not looking to "produce" videos, just a diagnostic tool. I REALLY like it.

    @bhert What will be your primary use for your scope cam? If you’ll be hunting where you’re carrying a rifle long distances or through trees and undergrowth, you probably want the lightest setup that can be left attached and won’t get snagged on plants, clothes, or backpack straps. If you will be doing benchrest styled longe-range shooting (bench rest paper punching or sniping prairie dogs and ground squirrels) from a fixed position weight probably isn’t a huge factor and you can tolerate a larger setup with parts that hang off of your scope. Addressing these points may help members to better advise you.

    It doesn't sound like you are thinking about the phone side shot system.  But if you are, keep in mind your phone times out and screen goes black.  You will need to open the phone and get the camera app up and recording before each recorded shot.  (My IT Dept. Requires a lengthy pass code making this not usable).  The firefly system allows for 1 button wakeup and recording.

    If you are considering the Tactacam with the FTS mount, here's a collection of recent information all around that system, links, instructions, etc.

    In my case I will be shopping for an actioncam when the snow melts and I start with my outdoors (gravel biking, camping, watersports) so I am following with great interest as well.

    So in example if I get a latest popular action cam let say gopro …. what else I would need to make it work with my BR and or  long range scope setup?

    I think a question got to a specific removable mount.

    bigHUN,

    here're are a few threads I collected about scope cams, many of them compare different models/types.

     

    🔶 In the end you have to figure out what features are important to YOU and fulfill best YOUR PURPOSES for wanting to film something through your scope in the first place. 😊

    I need a good action cam with image stabilization, and if I could use it for my BR shooting recording as well that is just a bonus ;)

    Sony Action Cam has image stabilization if I remember correctly.

    I had a Sony action cam for several years and I like that image quality, but the issue was not enough accessories and brackets for rigging/mounting. Gopro third party support is huge and this why I am looking towards gopro now.

    If you already had a drone with a decent camera you could set it on something near the target and likely get some good video. Without the motors running it should last a long time. Until the guy in the next lane takes it out.

    I like the eaglevison 25% 75% light transmission with the universal mount as no other 1”, 30mm, 34mm rings are needed to move it from one scope to another and the quality of the mirror is better than the sideshot mirror.. the Orion cam system doesn’t work on every scope like the eaglevison universal mount does  .. the fixed 2 bar system is the way to go if u are out in the field and don’t want to have to worry about the scopecam moving in the least bit..
