So I have always wanted a scope cam (Ialmost have a working model running) to capture some of the things I get to see through my scope. One thing I have noticed is the sound of a BB travelling at 595 fps by someones head can get them to react, sometimes comdically. Sometimes missing can be more effective as it will get people (smart ones) to keep there heads down, unless of course they know where you are in which case all they need to do is close the 100 foot engagement distance (I know rules are different for different areas) but then they get to face my pistol
.

Anyways the reason for this is in my purusing of you tube I came across the video linked below.


At 2:38 you can hear a bb wiz by the camera. Yours truly is the one pulling the trigger. I am about 100ft away from the camera as the bb's are going by. I am not in the frame I am at about 2 oclock and farther in the brush from where he is at. I can pick out a total of 3 shots fired. in the 2:30 to 3:15 time frame on the video.

I figured some of you would appreciate this as we dont usually get to see the other side of our scope. Here is part 2 of my video from the same event. right at the beggining I think is the same time.

I love the thought of putting a camera behind the scope.

I have actually seen people do this with air rifles. And it seems to work very well.


I may have to come up with something for the game I have coming up.

I saw a cool way to get a "scope cam". It was simply another scope(alot more compact) mounted in front of the guys camera. I thought it was a pretty good idea, as it doesn't effect the actual shooting scope. You could even get the two cross hairs to be in the same place, so that for the camera, the point of aim is at point of contact.

Woog, my issue with that is I dont want to break the camera and I tend to beat up my gear, I tried to mount my scope farther forward but with a 6 " eye relief I could get it lined up right. I should have a tester soon but work and family are getting in the way of my airsofting ATM :)

I don't want to sound really stupid. But today I ran a Acog on my sniper and I duct tape my camera to the Acog and guess what my camera has a zoom feature so I get zoom on my scope will I am at it.

That's a good chunk of change for something that is going to be used in a very particular thing. I would rather rig something up using a normal camera of some sort. I have always thought of just mounting my camera directly behind my main scope and just using the camera screen to aim. I always thought it would be horribly inconvenient to have to look through the screen though. Now that I have an M4, maybe I will try that some day.
