Default What Camera?

Anybody know if a decent video camera you would recommend for bowhunting? I donít need to produce my own show, just want good quality video when Iím bowhunting. I would say $300ish could go higher but I donít really want to.

Can’t go wrong with a Canon or Sony.

Agreed with the post above. I filmed with a Canon for a few years and totally loved it. Finally got a 4k camera and went with a Sony. Either option should suit your purposes. Look for something with a decent optical zoom 10x at least. Don't pay attention to the digital zoom numbers as anything past the actual optical zoom will look crappy on video.

I'll be selling a Canon XA20 in the near future, but it might be a bit outside the budget range.

What would you recommend for a secondary camera, specifically for the reverse angle shot?

It has tracking focus that is great for moving animals through trees etc and is very simple to use
