me and my roommate want to start taping our hunts, what are some things to look for in a camera. P.S. we are semi-poor college kids

Heck just pick your self up a sony handi cam I believe they are around $200, make sure it is the ones with the mini dv tapes Steve and I use it as a second cam and they work great just not as much low light as the big cams but close!!That way you can buy a cheap tree arm because free hand will always stink with the little cams..

Consider that for the most-part, you will need a Canon GL2 or Sony PD-170 type camera to get good enough footage to be used in a video / tv. Depends on what your goals are. If it is to simply document your hunts for yourself, then what Wally said is right - you can do it with a cheapy camera and it will still take pretty good footage.

If you want to pursue something on a serious level, a good camera is a starting point. You can find a used GL1 or GL2 for under $1,000.00 in many cases. But, I will warn you - this little hobby of filming hunts isn't cheap and is never-ending!

Good luck this fall and have fun - that's the most important thing!
