What is the latest small video Camera that could be kept in a Back pack while hunting. I have an older model mini DV model that the view finder
is very cloudy. I was considering a new purchase.

Thanks, Randy Chamberlin

That really depends on the amount of money you want to spend but an all around great HD camera would be to get yourself a Go-Pro. I have one I use as a second camera but they have incredible HD quality. the downfall with this is that it is not great in low light situations.

I use a Canon XA10 with Canon's wide angle lens on a 3rd arm tree mount. My whole setup fits neatly into a Maxpedition Sitka Gearslinger that allows me to pack in lightly setup and film within 10 minutes. The XA10 will shoot 18 hours of high def footage on 64gb internal and 128gb external SD cards. It has a good built in mic but it also has two XLR outputs for a mounted shotgun mic and or an external wireless mic like a Sennheiser mic system.

For the money it is hard to beat the JVC Everio line of cams, very small and light weight, use SD card and/or hard drive options and take exceptional video and many models are under $300 and will fit in your cargo pants pocket!

I got a GroPro3 Black from the wife for Christmas. I'm still figuring out how to use it but it's tiny and has a remote control with wifi built in. It also works with my Droid so I can see and change settings better than the digital readout on the camera. That's a really big deal with these old eyes. They other thing I like is the wide area it covers. I'll be trying it out soon on a hog hunt.
It's also suposed to be very good in low light and has settings that will work well for slow motion shots.

+1 for the Kodak playsport. They are compact, cheap and shoot excellent video.

I have been filming hunts for 25 years. For my knock around camera I love the playsport and I have one that stays mounted on my bow. Like the Gopro it has poor low light performance but a much better zoom.

When I am seriously filming a hunt, I go to the Sony HDR-160. It has the Exmor backlit processor and is superior to any camera I have ever used in low light. I can film with this camera a full 20 minutes or so before and after my other cameras in low light situations. It is a tiny thing also and ran me about $400.00. It can now be had for less than $250.00 and is a steal at this price. The HD picture quality is unreal. They have a less expensive model that still uses the backlit processor.

If you want to see the picture quality, take a look at this video but set the quality at the HD setting in Youtube. The closeup shots on the "other" animals in the video such as the squirrels and hares really shows what this camera can do.
