My daughter decided to buy a pair of I-kams, pretty spendy eye wear at a hunddy fro a kid to buy but it her money. So Wen they com She says take care of these dad till we go hunting an of course Dad forgets about them. so i find them today in my man closet, thats right I dont have a man cave, Im subjected to a man closet. Anywho...... Any one have experience with these, Just a pair of glasses with a camera in the center to record, their pretty cool, has a usb port to down load to PC so i hope to get her bustin a big bear this year witht the x bow. Anyone have one or expereince one, Pros-cons ect. Thanks, Boar

I've had a pair for a few years... don't use them that much. Always forget I have them! From limited use at home, I've noticed the camera is angled a bit higher than where your line of sight is. Practice with them before the big hunt!

I got them and am pretty happy with them. I have posted photos on here before, (yes you can take still shots) they dont work well for archery cuz when you shoot your head is turned, but pheasant ,goose, duck they get some great action shots. FOr duck hunting i like to take the lenes off so that you can see in twilght period when the action is

Here are some photos.....

I got a pair for 40 bucks, figured I couldn't pass on them at that price. I'm thinking waterfowl, pheasant, and turkey, maybe archery too...tracker's vids were running in my head when I saw them for sale.

It's hard to get any kind of video of hunts without taking away a gun from your buddy and putting a camera in his hand, or buying a gopro, but I can't justify that big of a purchase right now. I'm hoping the IKam helps me see if I like the first person video perspective.

So far my Kodak camera and flip camera have helped me capture a few fun memories while fishing, but most of the shots are of other people...it's hard to get someone else you record you fighting a fish in the heat of battle. If I like the IKam, maybe it'll come fishing too.

Good luck boar, I'll be looking forward to seeing your videos.

Well chise, me an the wife just got back from running out cycles to a neighboring town, i didnt know she had the I cam on he face an she recorde the whole trip, an some she is able to play the trip back on our sons computer. All I have to say is Pretty freaking cool, these things are awsome an capture exactly what you see with like traker says, the cam is a shade high so its raised a little, but no big deal. from wat Ive seen of the video she took of our ride. get a pair an start playing with them so ur ready for hunting. I think my computer dosent have windo media player but that don seem right either,

      Hi there, I am making sure that this is the location that folks will be posting updates for Ice Fishing on Lake Vermilion this winter (2022).  I think so but want to make sure as I plan on trying to get out next weekend, December 8-11.
    • smurfy
      thanks wanderer.......even reports from lakes like leech gives me a pretty good idea of what the lakes i want to fish will be like. lot of past experience helps, and no doubt wheelers will be used soon.    we had a retiree.holiday union party last night. buddy said that his kid was on little Winnie with about 5 inches of ice and there moving all around the lake!!
    • Wanderer
      Leech lake has been 100% capped for about a week, I think.  Before you say that’s not a small, underfished lake, it’s just an example that you could prolly drive wheelers on your kind of lakes by now. 😉   I’ve been seeing a lot of 5-7 inch reports going into the weekend.  Sadly I haven’t cut a hole yet.  Still working on repairs and updates on our houses.
    • leech~~
      Here's some throw back for yea. Lets your candy azzz E-cutter battery do this!  🤣

      Oh I didn't say I don't own several versions of Teslas, just that until this hell frozen over state changes I'll always find a use for the ice diggin' anchor. Will be a great post hole digger in it's next life use too
    • leech~~
      Yep no puzzy Tesla auger for me until they pry it from my dead hands!  😆

      Still waiting for global warming to ditch my Lazer Mag, always in the truck for thick, virgin ice.    Don't know if it's possible, or advisable, but thought I would throw a 8" K drill bit on it to lighten it up. Should be an adapter for such a conversion. Careful what you wish for, probably rip my arm off with a shredding combo like that 😂

      Leech I still have my old jiffy gas auger mainly for sentimental reasons. I haven’t used it for 3 years now. The only time I start it up is in the garage just to hear that pop pop pop sound lol   I will never go back and have no regrets going electric. Huge weight saver and with an extension will go through any thickness of ice. Starts first pull every time lol    we were fishing 2 weeks ago Swiss cheesing a slough here in SD on 4” of ice when someone else tried to fire up their gas auger and my buddies and I looked at each other almost in disbelief that someone was still using a gas auger.   pros and cons for sure but I think electric has more pros than cons with advancements lately     
    • smurfy
      any ice thickness reports..........especially on smaller not heavily fished lakes???????   chances are i wont be up till after christmas anyway, but............
    • leech~~
      Let me know when you go again.  I'll being my crossbow and take out the Deer when you kick them up!  😁
