I enjoy videoing while I bowhunt and its was time for an upgrade. The requirements of my bowhunting cam is that its got to be small enough to come out of the pocket easily and light weight and it has to have great zoom. I took advantage of cyber Monday sales and got a Cannon SX720 HS pocket cam. It’s a very compact 20 mega pixel camera but has 40X optical zoom. I have found that carrying a high zoom cam while bowhunting eliminates the need to carry binos.

Here is a zoom test. I think this is enough reach for me. Im thinking of putting in a food plot to the east of that big crater. Make sure to set the youtube quality to HD to appreciate the detail.

While researching what camera to buy I looked at the zoom capabilities of cameras on youtube. Here are zoom tests others had done that sold me on this pocket camera.

I got the camera for $279. If you are looking to self film or want a pocket cam to take on your bow hunts, give this camera a look.
