    That's the story of this site.... See new gear and buy it. I love it.

    I just bought a panasonic 570 and its pretty amazing. Even has a selfie cam u can use for POV filming simultaneously. Capture you and deer at same time while drawing and shooting. $330 with extrabattery

    Looks like My wife picked up this camera for me from amazon for fathers day! How long would you say the battery lasts? She ordered a package but the extra battery is not included....

    I like the idea that it can pair with your cell phone as well for that second angle! I like to use my iphone mounted to my bow and now it can be on the same screen as the camera angle! Or I can use the secondary camera on the camera to get my reaction

    Quick little test today up about 25 feet, first time using the camera in the tree. Definitely pleasantly surprised at the quality! Not the best shooting, I'm a bit rusty gauging yardage ... closer than I thought.
    Not using the fourth arm but I will be making that purchase before the season, so to hijack the thread!

    Have you guys tested out the low light capabilities of this camera yet?

    Just so you guys know, Fourth Arrow now has an extension that allows you to have 3 segments instead of two. I'm still playing around with the optimal saddle orientation. My setup last year worked well for leaning, but when sitting and kneeling around the tree, the bridge would cause interference at some angles.

    I had thought about trying the Rex arm they make so a super light compact setup. Not sure how well it would work tho

    That's an interesting thought. I'm not sure you'll have enough reach to see around all but the smaller of trees. I'll go try it out.

    Rex arm by itself doesn't give much for reach. 2 and 3 segment setup shown for comparison. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
