First off you're probably wondering why so many cameras. My wife wonders that too.

When I first began with trying to get photos and video footage I found that it was getting in the way of fishing. And that's the reason for being out there in the first place. I tried just clipping the cam on my vest and putting on a hat. That worked ok, but I wasn't getting the angles and types of shots I needed to edit and produce an interesting video.

On dry land I can take the time to move one camera around and eventually procure all the necessary angles for a shoot. I quickly found that technique wasn't going to be very effective or efficient on a float tube.

After lots of research I realized that I would need to set up multiple cameras equipped with remotes to capture the angles and footage I wanted without impacting my fishing! With the use of remotes I only need to inject a few quick button presses in my normal fishing routine to capture the footage I need. Almost zero impact on my fishing!

The GoPro camera is extreme high quality and is loaded with features. But for lots of the stuff I was going to shoot I didn't need all of the extra features. So I researched the market and found a couple of quality cams at a more reasonable price.

Now the real trick turned out not to be the cameras, but how and where to mount them on a float tube! But this post is just to introduce you to my growing family of float tube toys. And of course when I logged in to the forum this morning and browsed the forum I was introduced to another camera! The Water Wolf. No question about where to mount that one tho'.

So...I'll be happy to discuss anything in regards to any questions about the cameras here. But I'll make another post in the MOD section concerning the mounting issue. You'll also get a look at my rack system I have been developing for awhile.

I'm looking forward to sharing my adventure/hobby with the FTFF members. Photography and fishing are my two major hobbies. It'll be fun sharing with you guys. I'd rather go fishing with you but that's difficult.
