Here are a few pictures of what I will be attempting this year at a few of the FT matches, I tested it out at the last indoor match and found it is difficult, but not impossible to shoot, the only problem there was the lighting...

Hopefully this week I will be getting out to do some shooting and will have a videos to post...

Cool setup. So do you just shoot by watching the screen on the camera?
If so, does that mean you could also zoom?
So if your scope goes up to 40x, and the camera has a 10x zoom, that's like having a scope that goes up to 400x!?!

:lol:

Yes you look by looking through the LCD screen, and yes you can zoom in on the magnified image given by the scope, but it gets blurry real quick...Starts to look like your playing NES :lol:

Looking through the scope does give you the advantage of looking at the magnified image (from the scope) at regular zoom through the camera. So if I am using my scope at 20X I get that zoom level on my video without losing resolution from from actually zooming in my camera...

Hey Joel,
We missed you yesterday in the Port!
What's the difference between the mount you have and a Seben? Where did you get it? What made you buy that particular model of Casio in their Exilim series? I've been looking into getting some slow mo footage myself.

Yeah, sorry I couldn't make it, the notorious "car troubles" strike again...




The difference between the mount I have and a Seben is basically the name on it, from my research they are essentially the same thing...

I had to order this camera from Japan via Ebay, it is in fact the Japanese model, but running in English language settings.

I choose this model as I have seen a few people using it and the video it produces, as well as the fact that it is small, light and will not cause the mount to shift as bigger cameras do...Reviews for this camera rate its capability above just about anything out there for its size, which is why they are becoming very hard to find...

I should have some video posted up to YouTube soon, when I edit and upload them I will post links in this thread

each time you zoom the camera do a half-stop to let it focus

Walter, I did a 5 ft drop test on concrete with my Casio ZR-100 :shock: but it passed the test with flying colours. Except for a few itty bitty bare metal spots where the paint was scrapped off, everything functions normally including the zoom. I am just amazed how sturdy that little camera is.
