Here is a look at what we take out in the field to capture all the action and bring it to you.



The team built a parabolic microphone setup using some equipment they already had in their pack. The project, including detailed instructions so you too can build your very own, is HERE.

NIGHT OPTICS TM-X Thermal Camera


We have been researching thermal devices for the last couple of years and finally found this gem from Night Optics. It features high quality night vision with the ability to select from several color viewing options and even reverse polarity of the image. It can detect heat signatures from over 500 yards away and records still and video images to the built in SD card. It's also very affordable as far as thermal devices go.

Sony HVR-Z5U

SONY HVR-Z5U HD Video Camera


This HD video camera from Sony's pro division allows us to take broadcast quality video in the field. This model also provides professional quality audio along with the 1080P video resolution. Although this camera is quite big itis stil very portable.


Fenix TK35 Flashlight


With 4 light levels and 820 Lumens this tactical light is often reffered to as the best purchase ever made. The aircraft alluminum body is lightweight, durable and waterproof it is a must have for any night ops.

Azden SGM-2X Shotgun Microphone


This shotgun microphone records better audio than any onboard mics we have. We use this on a boom pole for filming and in our new parabolic mic setup...love it!


V.I.O. POV. HD Helmet Camera


This HD helmet camera has all the features we need. 1080P video, high quality audio, plenty of settings and its tough as nails. We strap this baby on a backpack shoulder strap, press record and head out into the woods.

BUSHNELL BONE COLLECTOR TROPHEY Trail Camera


First of all this guy is only 3 1/2" by 5 1/2" in size, IT'S TINY! Second, 4 AA batteries lasts 6 months, 8 AA batteries lasts 12. With an 8MP camera and 32 IR LEDs whats not to love. Oh yeah, it shoots widescreen VGA video too.

ZOOM H4 Audio Recorder


This high quality audio recorder features two studio microphones for crisp clean recording. It records on an SD card, runs on batteries and is small enough to strap on your belt. You can plug an external microphone into it and even record on up to four tracks if needed. Its basically a mini recording studio.


SONY UWP-V1 Wireless Microphone


This professional wireless lavalier mic has the rugged housing and long range required for Fathom Frontiers' field work. Sold by Sony's pro division this baby plugs right in to your camera's mic input and even mounts on the camera's hot shoe interface.

Princeton Tec Quad

This tactical headlamp uses four ultra bright LEDs to produce 60 lumens of light and has a red filter that can be installed for covert night ops. This is the only red headlamp bright enough to get us down the trail safely and still maintain minimal visability.
