Trygve,

I agree with both of your suggestions. The lighting was not what I wanted. But, it is what I had to accept. If I had remembered to simply switched on the LED light on my camera, you would have been able to see the internals much better. For what it is worth, the breech is very easy to remove. I comes off in 1-2 minutes. So, go ahead and take a look for yourself. :mm:

The "before" and "after" sound comparison has been requested by many many people besides you. I should have addressed that point in my video. I actually did make a recording of the gun shooting before and after the installation. But, my camera did not show the difference. It was unable to capture the "pinging" sound. I need better recording equipment. :ok:

Ted

PS Thanks for fielding some questions, Jeff. I appreciate it. And you know hot to word things better than I.

Mount is the Seben DKA2 - $60. Seben in a European company. The mount is only available on eBay for US buyers.



Apparently only sold via Ebay. I have been looking around, but cant find it anywhere else..... :ok:



Casio makes high-speed point-n-shoot camera. The EX-FC150 is at the TOP of my list for my next camera.


Difficult to find in Norway unfortunately. I may have to buy from the US (Amazon) as my friends in Lanzarote don't stock them..... :ok:


The Casio EX-F1 is the best at slow motion, but it is too large for our purpose.


Now that one is truly interesting. Not as a scopecam, but to document pellets and how they fly..... Also super when it comes to document the behavior of your rife (recoil, twist etc.).

Deffo on my shopping list. Thanks again for the tip...!!! :da:



For video editing, I use Ulead Videostudio Pro X3. It's a balance between power and "for dummies".



For "dummies" ? In that case perfect for me !!!! ;)


I have been working as a photographer for some years in the past, - and I still enjoy still pictures. Video is new territory (almost) but things like exposure, light etc. should be very much the same.

If you should forget price for a moment, what would be the ultimate scopecam combination in your view ?. In terms of quality, ease of use, option to use scope the normal way etc. etc. etc......

Have you a "dream set-up" that you can think of ?

Thanks again ......

:ok:


PS: Also found you on the Yellow and learning fast....... :mm:

For my "ultimate scopecam", I guess I would keep things as they are, and simply add the Casio Ex-FC150 camera. I would love to have more zoom and higher definition at fast speed. But, this would come at the cost of added weight/bulk. Keeping things small/light is very important.

I will buy that camera within a year, and then the videos will be even more fun! :)

One more thing - I've added a new video highlighting the specifics of the camera mount.

Shooting Beers @ 170 Yards.

This is my 2nd and final entry to the Pyramyd Air video contest. My videos aren't as visually stimulating as many of the others, but hopefully the judges will like my "just the facts, ma'am" style. Win or lose, I had fun making them.

Here are the details:

Rifle: Edgun Matador #2339 .22cal
Scope: Leapers Accushot SWAT 4-16x 56mm AO Illuminated Reticle
Pellets: JSB Exact Heavy Jumbo 18.1g
Bipod: Harris 6-9"
Beer: MGD 64 (expired, and not my cup of tea anyway)
Wind: 5mph from the NorthEast (45 degree angle to shooting range)

Thank you, Bluesman.

To synchronize videos, I crop (cut) one video segment to match the other. This is done with editing software. Both videos are captured at the same speed (and I also slow them to the same speed for slow-motion video). So, I only need to synchronize once.

Another hint while at it: Why not show us what it sounded like before and after the operation..... ;)


I think I have a good example for you.

Listen to Ed shoot a Matador without the depinger:




That ringing sound is what the "depinger" removes.

The hammer striking the valve still makes a tiny "ping", but it is very small (only 5% as much as the original "ping" sound).

Many Russian fellas have emailed me saying that this is a stupid idea, because you waste too much space in the air tube. It is true that I lose about 2 shots due to the depinger taking up space. To me, the reduction of the sound is worth the trade of the two shots. It is a choice we all must make. I simply show you how to do it. I do not say "my way is best". :smex:

Ted,

From Lanzarote this time: Again great stuff from your side. I cant wait to try to experiment a little myself. I have now secured my CASIO EX-CF150 (from tax-free shop at London Gatwick airport, last one they had), but the mount is still missing. I'll still try to shoot some hs-video though and try to edit same.... :)

I may come back to you and ask for more advice, and I shall definately watch this space as I move on.

I am also trying to think of a "switch" that can activate the camera from far or via the trigger. Any ideas ?

Cheers....... :smex:

:)

Yesterday, I received my new Hawke Sidewinder. It's everything I expected (including the weight).
I've never felt more "set" than I do right now. My Matador + this Hawke is a lethal hunting rig.

The Hawke does a few things better than my Leapers Accushot. The glass is better. The reticle is
thinner. The mildots are true at 20x (I really like this), and there are 1/2 dots. And the AO
"locks" in better.

Here they are next to each other:

Here's a 10-shot group @ 100 yards using 3.5 mildot holdover at 20X. If it weren't for the light
and variable cross wind, this group would have been insane. :)

And here is the youtube video - initial thoughts and comparison to my Leapers...followed by some
holdover shooting of shotgun shells.

I've uploaded another video. This one is a hunting video, so if you disapprove of hunting pest species, please do not watch it.

For all other - enjoy! :rolleyes:

On most of distant shots you can see the actual pellet flying towards the target.
About 2 years ago I did a frame-by-frame video capture here http://edgun.com/for...?showtopic=1697
That were Moscow crows at about 50-60 meters.

THIS is why I opted for the Hawke Sidewinder 30 Scope (6.5-20X)

The monster reticle on this scope allows me to use mil dots all the way out to 150 yards at 20X power. That's 20x, not 10x, guys! This is exactly what I wanted, and the primary reason I bought this scope (besides the good glass, micro-slim reticle, and solid construction). Yes, it's heavy at 26 ounces. But, I can accept that, if I don't have to adjust the turret knob. I'm a hunter and so is my Edgun. We don't like "clicking" when we see a crow at 100+ yards.

Take a look at me plinking cans of beer at 30-150 yards without any turret adjustments.

The video says "Hunting" in the title. Do you think my viewers would enjoy a hunting video with no hunting?

I don't shoot every bird that I see. I only show the viewers the birds that I DO shoot.
Many many birds I did not shoot. But, you did not see those.

Do you disapprove of the video?
If so, why do you not follow instructions?

Looks like AASkipp has arrived here too just to complain....
Some people just look for a reason to tell you their negative opinion....
Maybe derganiy will post a video of himself walking through the woods
bird watching with his scope....

Your video and shooting are very quality.
But at us it is considered that the sparrow doesn't harm.
The good hunter kills only harmful animals or that them to eat.
