Epic Stealth Cam - A Product Review

Postby Dodgem250 » Sun Sep 27, 2009 9:22 am

Greetings,

Dwight here from Indian Head, Maryland !

This is my first attempt at recording a video with my new Epic Stealth Cam and my first post on YouTube, so this is taking 30 minutes too long already. Here's the setup, 15 yards with cloudy skys at 12:30PM .The camera works great in sunny and overcast light conditions, but, as for evening or low light conditions, this camera could be useless for the deer hunter, since most kills occur during low light and evening conditions and being in the woods with leaves still on the trees is enough to block the camera for a good view of deer, small game... just forget it.

The audio on the camera is really impressive though, you'll hear every little flea fart of noise from the arrow on the rest and the twang when I release, I would rather have less impressive audio and more impressive video in low light conditions, since deer don't talk too much when you shoot them, who needs the sound.

The concept of the Epic Stealth Cam is a great one, but, this camera needs some more work and the video definitely needs some attention, my cell phone does a better job than this camera, however, I am gonna stick it out until the fall / winter and see what it does to impress me with no leaves on the trees.

Anyway, here is my first video with the Epic Stealth Cam, so, enjoy it for what it's worth, it's a test, not a world premier release for the box office.

Am I happy with the small fortune I paid for this camera? Yeah... so far.

Would I recommend it to someone else? I probably would.

Yeah it's a nice little camera. I have the mossy oak one and it's about 3" long and 1" diameter. Comes with a few different type mounts, batteries include 2 AAA, It comes with a 2GB SD card that is removable, and you can plug in the supplied USB cable directly to the computer as well. Neat little gadget.

I'll post some more when I have it mounted to the shot gun and the smoke pole.

We use this camera to capture in the stand shots, and shots from the bow during bow fishing episodes. We dont us it to capture the shot on the animal just the hunter taking the shot.

We film all the impact shots and other with our HD cameras, but so far this little camera has been a nice addition to our arsenal of film and TV show production.
