Anyone using one of the generic gopro,s? Good bad ?? The actual go pro is 2 to 3 times the cost of these copies. I want to video my form for help. Have no idea how to do it on phone. Even if its possible.

Crow#2, I have a Samsung phone not sure what model but I can take a video with it. If I open the camera there is a button on the bottom left of the screen, it's red. If I touch it, it will record a video and if I touch it again, it stops recording. Hope this helps you. I'm not very tech savvy and my 14 year old son helps me with phone and computer issues...after he laughs at me. If you know any youngsters they are usually pretty good with tech stuff. Best of luck to you!

Also high frames per second recording works well if you want to do some slow motion videoing. Phones now days are pretty impressive with features.

How do ifo high frames recording? I feel a trip to verizon coming on. Or money put out for some type of recording device.

I have a Samsung note and use it for the same purpose. It has a ultra slow-motion mode. It captures enough frames per second to see the parallax of the arrow.

The cameras in phones these days are mind-bogglingly adequate.

Just go to camera, figure out how to put it into video mode and then select your slow motion. Nothing to it!

Save your money for more arrahs!

Samsungs have decent cameras. If you want to play it back even slower, I use MX Player. You can slow it down another 75%

I want to get a phone attachment for my bow. They make one for a go pro but why buy a go pro when my phone will video. I am trying to come up with a way to attach it safely. Anyone else done this? I found an adapter for a compound or a bow with a stabilizer screw in. My longbow doesn't so I am going to order one of the gadget adapters from Great Northern and hopefully that will work.

Bootaka I've gotta go to Verizon because I can't figure it out. I'm not a technology guy.LOL

Don't waste your time at Verizon. I find they are no longer helpful since they fired all their support staff. The people working in the stores now are instructed to sell product and services. I used to be a big fan as they would work with you but that time has come to an end. I am not saying a good Samaritan who happens to work there might not decide to violate policy and help you but it is no longer their job.

A good friend of mine worked for them for 13 years and lost her job when she was told they no longer needed her services as they would not be doing technical support in the stores any longer, it would all be handled remotely.

I would google search your phone model and find a YouTube video showing how to us the various functions or recruit a teenager you know as most have been playing with phones since they were toddlers.

Back to the OP original question. I have no experience with GOPRO or other camera options but I am curios to hear others experiences good or bad. Good Day
