If videoing a hunt is your goal, Tactacam makes the process simple.  I just returned from an African safari on which the Tactacam camera took a beating and performed flawlessly.  This was my first experience with the new camera device and I was instantly impressed.

Focus and Mike

Hunting video made easy.

The following post from my YouTube channel shows a clip shot the first morning of the safari.   Animals coming to a waterhole are incredibly wary because they are often ambushed by leopards and other predators.  I have the Tactacam 4.0 mounted on the scope of my CAMX crossbow.  You will see me rising from the depths of a sunken hunting blind and sighting out of the shooting window.  Watch how the camera immediately focuses on the animals going from the close blur of the curtain to full view of the animals.  The voice you hear is my softest whisper yet the narration is clearly audible on video.

Easy Peasy Operation

Watch how clearly and quickly the camera focuses.

You turn the camera on with a touch of a button and a soft vibration confirms that it is operating.  It mounts on the scope of a rifle or crossbow with a “potato clip mount” that is sturdy yet adjustable.  Here’s a quick review of the camera’s features:
