Santa brought me a new camera to play with.. i used some redneck ingenuity to attach it to my bow. So far i really like it.. I dont know about the other GoPro cameras but on this one you can adjust the angle of the lens (Wide, Medium, or Narrow) And it can shoot in 1080. I tried it on "Narrow" and it looks like it could be used to capture a shot on a deer out to 40 or maybe 50 yards fairly well. Hopefully i can try it out before season goes out. I was gonna get out for the Bonus antlerless season .. Also i took an old headlamp i had and turned it into a head strap mount.

Not impressed with the battery life of this thing.. With the battery it comes with i can only get about an hour of life out of it, but even if you turn it off it the battery will be completely dead the next day. Did some research and other people are having the same problem. It said the battery will last longer after 3 charges.. There are also bigger batteries that you can buy for it tho. I had a similar problem with my other cideo camera, the guy at the store told me the battery would last 4 hours and it lasted 15 minutes. Im going to order 2 replacement batteries that are supposed to last longer ($25)
