Default Camera for beginner self filmed hunts

I have been wanting to start self filming my hunts and im not really sure what camera i should be using. Would a cheap mini digital cam corder work pretty well? I will be getting a camera arm when im in a tree and small tripod for those ground blind days. What kind of cameras do you use and why? Maybe someday (when im as gooda hunter as you ole timers ,lol just kidding) i will invest in a better quality camera.

Droptine, TD1 or any of the other cameras could give you some good advice on this. I bought a Canon handheld last year that I really like.........

Canon Hfm500 or hfm 50 is a great camera.... I like "third arm" tree arms, they are a little high but have a good design.

Thanks Deon, What is a decent enough megapixel and FPS setting to catch my arrow flight on film?

WOW, that is almost as expensive s my complete bow setup lol. My budget as of now only allows up to about $300 for the camera. I already have a tripod that was given to me, just not the tree arm yet

If you use Lighted Nocks you will be able to see the arrowflight.

Oh I forgot to tell you that these guys are "Big Ballers" with lots of money. Poor people like me have to buy cheap ones like a Canon Vixia......

You can buy refurbished cameras from Cannon's website that are substantially cheaper.

Pine ridge tree arms are also a good, "non expensive" option
