I have discussed how much I enjoy filming my past turkey hunts here on my Website. So going into deer season, I decided to upgrade my Canon HV40 camera with some add-ons. I have previously written about the Primos camera arm (View Article) that I purchased to use this fall. Now let us talk about the new gear.
I love my camera and the only complaint I have is the built in microphone. It is not good. It records all the camera noise and do not get me started about wind noise. So I bought a shotgun microphone that is built for my camera. This will take care of my sound issues.
I also bought a lens hood to help shade the sun while filming. Another item I bought was a lens filter to go on my camera that filters out UV light. This will make my video have more realistic colors.
The final product I bought was a new tripod. I used a cheap one during turkey season and every time I set it up I wished for a new one. I bought a really good one, so no more complaining. This tripod is perfect for filming out of tower stands, yet it can fold up in a smaller package for those turkey setups.
Shown below is my new pimped out camera and tripod. Bring on the deer now.
