      Prayers for a longtime Member   11/05/2017

      The Church mass shooting that happened today, was Peggy Wardens Church. She was one of the people killed today and her grandson was shot in the arm and is in surgery. Lets keep her in our thoughts and prayers. I made a topic in the "Cabin" I will keep everyone updated as I get information.

  1. moose

    Pretty nice moose and nice pictures. If it stays warm your moose will have problems with winter ticks and some will probably die.
  2. S600 externals working, but internals are not

    The battery contacts down inside the camera may also be bent and not exerting enough pressure to make contact; that can be corrected by gently pulling them up. Beside scuffing the contacts try cleaning them with a little denatured alcohol.
  3. Those ears look almost identical to the ears on the bobcats in northcentral Pennsylvania -- here's one (severely cropped) from a photo I just pulled today.
  4. S40 F2.8 help

    I've never used rubbing alcohol (isopropanol), I use denatured alcohol (ethanol). Once I used a bit of hand sanitizer (unscented) which contains ethanol and it worked just fine.
  5. S40 F2.8 help

    Will Camera 1 operate with just the hack wires? If it does, it's not the hack of the power contact.The problem could also be a broken hack wire (more likely if you used solid rather than stranded wire). With Camera 2, are you sure the lens is seated in the body correctly, sometimes mine have been hard to get reseated tightly after hacking for external batteries. Otherwise, pull the lens ribbon cables (including the one for the focus motor) and clean them with alcohol.
  6. Near disaster with w230 build

    Are you sure that all the external batteries were oriented correctly in the holders? That kind of result can happen if a battery is reversed in a holder. If the insulation on any of the wires from the externals was melted it's almost a sure sign that a battery was reversed.
  7. 2 Camera Issues

    The second one sounds like you need a new board battery. Often when the battery powering the board weaken sufficiently it will trigger continuously until the camera's card is full or those batteries die.
  8. SSII and fast hack

    I've got a GameWatcher running a fast hacked S40; the board is powered by a 9 volt rechargable battery. Ralph can also supply a GameWatcher that will run on three AAA batteries. If you had room for a Yeti and its 9 volt, you should have no problem using a GameWatcher.
  9. Can't believe how badly Photobucket screwed us over.

    That's one (of several) problems with storing anything on a "cloud" service -- the provider can change their policies, their servers can go haywire or be hacked, they can begin to charge for what had been a free service, etc, etc. As long as any company makes something (computer, external hard drive, or other storage system) I'll never use "The Cloud" to store anything.
  10. Homebrew build with Reconyx specs?

    Just tried it with the only build I have in the house, a Sony S40 with a CritterGetter Micro board. Set the camera on burst mode (it then takes three photos in succession) and it worked just fine -- I've never tried that before. Although I didn't time it, the three photos take more than a second (probably about 2-21/2 seconds). The CritterGetter is no longer available, but it might work just as well with other boards. But, there's a catch -- Night photos wouldn't be possible since the S40 turns the flash off in burst mode and most other point-and-shoots would probably do the same.
  11. Batteries

    Forgot I have 8 Duracells also that I use in my Trap Bait Callers. All of my rechargables are 2300 mah or more. The batteries are changed each time I check my cameras (2 weeks to 2 1/2 months depending on how many externals are in the case) and recharged. I recently bought a smart charger and occasionally use it to recondition batteries. I use AAA rechargables for the control boards that use them and have two Imedion 9-volt rechargables that I'm testing in my Yeti and CritterGetter micro boards.
  12. Batteries

    Only AA rechargables for me, I'm too cheap to buy batteries that I'll just throw away in a few weeks. I'm still using rechargables purchased pre-2010 and they work just fine. Of the roughly 25 sets of four I have about half are Energizer and the rest are Imedions.

  14. P41 Keeps Resetting To Original Settings

    If they go back when you take the AAs out to change them the problem is the internal batteries.
