Oh, here is a recent video from my last event, using my old version ZoomCam.
The short answer, no. Here's why: I'm currently developing my 2nd gen gun camera. It's basically an GoPro Hero2, with a 50mm lens (made by ragecams), and a picatinny mount (mounted to my adjustable riser). The only thing I'm missing- a lens protector- I'm kicking a concept around that will use the stock waterproof case. For the gun camera, I normally crop the view anyways (to maintain 1:1 resolution and not obscuring the POV) so, I should be able to manage image stabilization in post processing. The 50mm lens is ridiculous zoom- reading street name signs over 100yds. Here's a video showing the difference between it and the standard GoPro:

Actually, when it comes to zooming into the point to where you can see your impacts beyond 75ft, I disagree. I can't think of one product off the shelf and I can only think of a handful of custom solutions, including my earlier version, and FreeEnterprise's.
