your follow-up shots. While you will never completely convince me to abandon my favorite
looking glass, this happens to be an area where
new technology can shine.
The Bullseye Target Camera from SME is
a digital solution to an analog problem. The
system mates a high definition 960p camera to
an onboard wireless Wi-Fi system. This package
allows you to leave the camera downrange
and see what is happening at your impact area
from the comfort of your shooting position. The
Bullseye Target Camera comes in a short-range
flavor dubbed the "Sight In" version that has
a range of 300 yards for a price tag of $349.99,
but for another $300 you can upgrade to the
"Sniper" version and obtain visual feedback all
the way out to 1 mile.
The Mifflin County Sportsman's Association
range goes out to 1,040 yards where you can
place your own steel in a wide-open bank. I
used the club's most beat-up pieces of steel
about 40 yards closer. On this particular August
afternoon, we just finished shooting a precision
groundhog match and it was already more than
85 degrees. Our spotting scopes were effectively useless at 500 yards-let alone 1,000 yards.
After a fresh paint job on the steel, we
deployed our unit by separating the receiver
from the transmitter/camera unit. Utilizing the
adjustable legs, we accommodated the camera
on the unleveled terrain and placed the camera
a few feet in front of the target. The swiveling
lens allowed us to offset the camera, reducing
the chance of it getting hit while providing us
with a means of fine-tuning our target picture.
After firing up our tablet, we were able to find
the Wi-Fi network and connect. After this, we
were able to set the target area, target size and
distance allowing us to measure our hits once
connected with the transmitter.

It did not take very long for us to get the camera
located downrange connected with the tablet.

After we trekked back to our shooting bench,
we found a clear line of sight to the main unit,
so we didn't have to deploy a tripod for the
receiver. Instead, we rested it on our bench.
Here I checked my previous engagement data,
dialed up and released a round, impacting the
left edge of the target. After cycling the bolt, I
held for wind and centered up a second impact
on the steel. The camera showed this brilliantly
on our device and we were able to mark both
hits right on the screen and measure them. The
process requires you to press "Show Shot"
every time you want an updated target image.
Although some might find this tedious, we
appreciated how this feature saved valuable
battery life and allowed us to play with this
gadget until early evening. Of course, the target
camera system also allows you to record the
action live if you desire-making for some
really great video projects.
Overall, we had a great day on the range with
SME's Bullseye Target Camera, but did notice
that it responded better to iOS-based platforms
than it did with Android equipment. The solution
to this was a quick software update. For more
