Action Cameras For The Shooting World

Unless you’ve been holed up in a cave deriving your entertainment from watching insect colonies creeping about, you’ve surely seen video flmed with a point-of-view (POV) camera. Also referred to as an action or a helmet camera, the best of the class are versatile, compact, high-defnition video cameras that can easily be worn or attached to any manner of object. The cameras can create jaw-dropping footage from crazy angles, and really give you that Call-of-Duty, frstperson- shooter perspective that will make you look badass.

As has been said, many of you might believe that “a golf course is a waste of a perfectly good rife range.” I won’t disagree, but there is something we can learn from our fellow golfers, and that is the beneft of flming yourself to diagnose any issues and improve your shooting technique. Assuming your instructor doesn’t mind, action cameras can be a great beneft when taking a training course; you can capture video to review later while giving your full attention to the tasks at hand. For a competitive shooter, they can help you deconstruct and evaluate how you performed in a stage, from your stage strategy to your movement and technique. With a buddy capturing you in action, you’ll have invaluable material to review. But while you might not always have someone to flm you (and some matches and venues might put limitations on this), you can always wear a camera to capture the action. Applications in law-enforcement and military actions are self-evident. Or, you can simply have fun with them, shoot some cool footage, and upload it onto YouTube!
