    Sony S600

    Nice photo Bill. The S600 still remains one of the all time favorites for trail cameras.
  3. Here's a few daytime videos I had on a GoPro Hero2 that I am testing for Trevor (buckhuntertrailcam) using the Safari Camera Controller with Amplified Audio Backpacker. Safari board was set to Day Only Videos in Feeder Mode which shoots around 37 second clips with a 1 minute delay between activations.

    New build

    I guess not. I had both time and date set and only the date is imprinted on the photos.

    New build

    This is a new build that I completed last week for Jeremi up north in Canada using a Sony WX220 which is a 18.2 megapixel point and shoot camera. He sent me the camera to see if I could hack it and if it would make a good trail camera. The setup has 2 wireless slave flashes, camera side has 6 AAs for camera externals, Safari Camera Controller with Flash Backpacker powered by 3 AAs as well as the transmitter for the wireless slave flashes. Camera was set to Program mode, Fill Flash and ISO 200. I had the camera and flashes set out for 4 nights over some corn as bait to see how it all worked. I positioned the wireless slave flashes so they would be in the shots so I could make sure they were actually firing.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you George. You have an amazing positive attitude for a guy that's been through so much already, keep that working in your favor my friend.

    What a surprise

    What a surprise

    This is a real GoPro Hero HD1. The Hero 2 also works great as a trail camera. You can usually pick them up on eBay for cheap since they are old models. Both are easy to hack for external power and external microphone and uses a bus port connector to activate the Power/Mode button for starting and stopping video. If have a video posted on the hack of these models:

    Great video Jonnie, the amped sound is awesome.

    Sometimes I think back to the days of the old wall phone with 15' curly cord, stretching it as far as I could into the hallway to talk to a girlfriend in somewhat privacy and wish were back to those days. Then I wake up and wonder what the heck was I thinking about. LOL

    What a surprise

    Imagine my surprise to finally get daytime video on my GoPro Hero HD trail camera of a fox coming to my bait pile, not just one fox but two.

    GoPro backyard videos

    I am powering the 18 watt LED array with four 18650 batteries with a total voltage of close to 16 volts. For the 36 watt light I had planned to use a 12v 7ah SLA but the only one I have wouldn't hold a charge so I improvised. Since this is setup behind my boat shed I used a 12v ac to dc charger that I had saved from something. Ran 16 gauge speaker wire from the charger out the back of the shed to my light so I now have a continuous power supply to that light until I can get a replacement SLA battery. I tried using 18650 batteries to power the 36 watt light last year but they just didn't last very long for that big light but they work great for the 18 watt lights. During my testing last winter I was getting about 1 1/2 to almost 2 hours of run time on the 18650s in the 18 watt light.
  15. Nothing spectacular just some footage captured on a GoPro Hero HD1 trail camera with 2 wireless LED arrays. The system is controlled by the Safari Camera Control board with Mosfet Backpacker. I have an 18 watt wireless light mounted just above the camera and a 36 watt wireless light mounted 15 feet to the right of the camera. My plans are to add a 3rd wireless light positioned at about a 45 degree angle 15 to 20 feet left of the camera. During testing over the past week I have had over fifty 37 second video clips at night and the wireless lights have worked flawlessly.
