    Tell me about your results using a target camera at 500-1000 yd.

    I regularly use a Target Vision LR-1 system at 600 yds. I was very satisfied with it, but recently upgraded to the ultra high definition model. Using an iPad Pro, the picture is amazing, especially when I zoom in. The system is easy to set up and the software is great.

    If you have any specific questions, I'll be glad to answer them.

    Caldwell Target Camera here. Comes neatly packed in a soft case and even has two stands for the camera/transmitter and the receiver units. I have only used it to 500 yards tho they do call it a one-mile system. The resolution is very good and it has some neat features for capturing and labeling your targets. I did buy two Tallantcell USB packs to power it but it has internal batteries as well. The app works with my iPad or my iPhone and I'm sure there is an android version too. I see them on sale from time to time at under $375 complete.

    I have the Caldwell Target Camera system and it works great. I mainly use it at 600 yards and the transmitter has enough power that I do not have to use the receiver at the bench for my tablet or cell phone. But Caldwell needs to do something with their flexible arm that holds the camera to the tripod. It becomes loose after a while and the camera wants to droop down. Caldwell sent me a replacement flexible arm but it is starting to have the same problem. You can get it to work when this happens but it can be a hassle. Other than that it is a great system for the price and I would buy another one.

    The bullseye camera worked really well for me until a guy I invited out to shoot put a bullet hole in it.

    He's not getting invited out to shoot anymore.

    I have been using the Caldwell camera for over a year and it works great for me in every respect. I use it mainly at 600 yards, but have also used it 1000 yards successfully. In my case, as opposed to the experience posted above, the flexible arm that supports the camera is as tight as when it was brand new.

    The only thing that has broken so far is the plastic top on one of the two stakes supplied to steady the tripods to the ground. However, what I now use instead of the stakes are a couple of heavy shooting bags. I just place one bag over one of the legs of the tripod, and that is good enough.

    EXAMPLE at 600 yards: Blue is Ø3", outer circle is Ø6". I use a Samsung Tablet to display the image, which I zoom in when actually shooting so each target fills the screen.
