Trying to get into filming my hunts!

I am trying to get into filming my hunts. Or actually having my friends or girlfriend film my hunts. Would love to hear tips on what equipment to purchase. I have a dslr that is pretty nice. There is a hunting package for it on campbell cameras website. I was thinking of purchasing it. Does anyone film with a dslr? I was possibly even going to try and film myself. Any information on purchasing a setup to film hunts or tips on filming hunts would greatly be appreciated. Thank you

I was filmed 2 years ago on a Wounded Warriors Turkey Hunt. Most of the filming occurred AFTER the shot. You will need to purchase some Editing Software. Also be careful of the mic. It can be damaged easily going through brush. I don't know what Camera they used but it wasn't real small. It was large enough that they could sit behind it and drape a Camo net over it to be concealed.

Please no one shame me for giving this advice but... if he isn't a member here go over to "the other site" and pm fieldarcher. He seems to be quite proficient at self filming if that's the route you chose. If not there are several guys here that film a bunch and might be willing to give you some pointers. Shootstraight's name comes to mind first. Also Bell from the other site had a nice camera for sale not too long ago. Not sure if it's still available

i film with a DSLR.

i would say, start with a video camera with a LANC and get your feet wet.

then go to a DSLR.

you need a good arm, good head, and lenses. the expense climbs quick. 

like GG said, talk with Tom and The Life.

call and talk to Campbell's, Kyle will help you out. 

 

if you already have a DSLR body, and that is the way you want to go, you need some lenses.

i have a 70-200 2.8, and a 14mm 3.1T  these are my main lenses for solo filming.

i bring a 50mm 1.8 and a 30mm macro to add some changes to my filming. 

i still go to my Vixia when in the truck solo interviews driving. it is on a tripod. but only after the clocks change.

when i have the time, it is DSLR for interviews also.

About to purchase the R70 hunting package on campbell's website. It cost $750.00. I think that will do the job for now. I have a dslr and a go pro that I can probably get different angles with. The dslr is my girlfriends so I don't want to dump a bunch of money on lenses on a camera that doesn't belong to me. Anyone use this R70 camcorder? I am planning on purchasing tonight! Reviews or opinions on the R70 would be great! Thank you!
