Post Re: Trophy Cam
That is an interesting evolution of trailcams:

"Another type of remote camera is the game camera or trail camera. It is a device that records images, either as a still photograph or a video. It is a rugged and weatherproof camera designed for extended and unmanned use outdoors. The images it produces are used for game surveillance by hunters.
Most cameras come with a strap that allows it to be hung from a tree and a lock to prevent theft. It will automatically take a picture when it senses motion. Each image is stamped with the date and time it was recorded. The game camera will usually function day and night by sensing game out to around 45 feet.
The first hunting trail monitor used heat sensing motion detectors to trigger a counter to count the number and record the time of animals passing by. The sensors are also known as passive infrared light sensors or PIR sensors. Normally, hunters are never around so they do not know what kind or size animal was being counted. Later, a camera was added. Game camera technology has evolved since then. Originally wildlife photography was only available by using film, but now there is a choice of film or digital cameras. The ability of game cameras to tell hunters where game is located is useful for pre-season scouting. The information tells hunters where to best place their blind or tree-stand. For digital cameras, all images are recorded onto a memory card, such as a commonly available SD card. This also allows hunters to conveniently transfer the images to a home computer or they can be viewed, copied and deleted by a Viewer in the field. [2] More expensive units have the ability to wirelessly upload captured images to a computer or website without any user interference."

Another use for these are in Afghanistan where the special forces use "More expensive units that have the ability to upload images to a satellite" ..... to track insurgents. These are pretty pricey units and are generally classified.
Another little known application of the craft of timelapse. 8-)

I wonder if the locals found their internet no longer worked after taking it away :lol:
It is quite common in a lot of countries to put telecom equipment inside fake rocks to make it less intrusive on the landscape and less of a target for vandals at the same time.

So they built all this hi-tech spy gear but no one bothered to check what colour the rock should be so it blended in with all the other rocks.

Hi,

I have to shoot a few sequences of timelapse of a mall. 3 of my shots are exterior and 3 indoor. I was thinking of using the bushnell since i need to take the shots over the next 6 months. Each area of set lasts for 5 to 6 weeks.

Any ideas or alternate equipment would be great.
