    We use all sorts of different cameras to film the show.

    For in the field filming most guys are either using the Sony HDR-AX2000 or Canon XA10.

    In the studio we film with DSLR's - mostly our Nikon D7000's or Todd's new D800.

    We also use Epic HD cams for our POV stuff.

    For camera arms we use both the 3rd Arm and Muddy Outdoors products. For the smaller cameras was use the Bogan 700RC2 head, and bigger cameras get the 701HDV fluid head.

    Hope that's what you're looking for.

    Most everyone is using Varizoom LANC controllers in the field while filming hunts. IMO it's a must-have piece of equipment especially if you're filming yourself.

    As for wireless mics, some use them and some don't. I personally don't use mine all the time as I believe you can get away with a decent shotgun mic on the camera so long as you talk into it clearly. When we do use wireless mics we have the Sennheiser EW100 series. For shotgun mics we have both Rode and Audio Technica brands. I personally use the Rode NTG2 with a wind screen most of the time.

    Cannon XA10 here,,I have a audio technia shotgun mic that does awesome on the sound. I have audio technia wireless mics but rarely use them. My camera arm is similar to the 3rd arm but I made it myself. works awesome! A LANC controller is next on the list,,,I need one bad!

    I use a Sony ax2000. Rocker switch. Sennhieser wireless Mic. A good wind screen on the camera Mic makes a ton of difference as far as UN wanted back round noise. I think it was $20. I use a 3 rd arm for a camera tree arm with a manfrotto 701 fluid head. My back with all.my self filming gear weighs about 25 lbs which sucks to carry all the time but just gotta man up. The final footage on a big buck self film is more rewarding I think.
