    Hit the link above..


    Here's a quick video I put together. I bought the cam for Deer Hunting and figured I'd give it a try for a few rounds of trap. Started out in 1080hd video wide angle. It's hard to see the bird but you do get a feel of how you're swinging the gun. I edited it down to just my shots for now. Going to try and maybe zoom in more or a different mount on my body.. Play it full screen. Hope you like it. Also it was slowed down by 50%

    Looks like you're canting your gun to the left. . . . . and your call for the bird sounds like a cross between a love sick cow and drunk hailing a cab. 8 >)Just couldn't resist. One of my friends got a set of these video glasses for Christmas that he plans to use for his deer hunting adventures. I'm wondering how they will stand up to the repeated recoil of a shotgun ?

    thanks for posting

    Is this the Contour cam? I was thinking about picking one of those up.

    how is the camera mounted to your head? on a tripod? it looks like you're about a foot above the gun! try mounting the camera on the bridge of your nose and see what we get! anyway, cool video! post some more!

    This is cool. Might actually be a good training tool - reviewing "the tapes" just like the pro athletes.

    Was the camera mounted on your glasses or maybe hat?

    I think it would be a great training tool. I'm glad you explained about the speed because I was beginning to think you was using a grunt deer caller to call for the bird. LOL

    There are two videos. One shot at Mallard the other is Howell, both in NJ just 15 minutes apart. The camera was on my head that is why it looks so far above the gun. Next time I'll try the zoom lens with less of a wide angle. Then possibly a different mount position. It did pick up the movement of the barrel before I called for the bird on two occasions the one lost bird on the fourth round you can see I picked up my head. Once I splice all 4 rounds together I'll post it up. The best viewing is in super slo-motion but play back takes a long time. Also going to try to cut the vibration down to zero.
