Keep an eye on things
Battery powered motion sensitive or time lapse game or trail cameras are a cost-effective way to monitor the environment and to keep an eye on things while you're not around.
- Use as a camera trap to survey for wildlife, game and pest animals
- Work out what and who is using burrows, waterholes, tracks, gates and trails
- Use as a security camera for farms and other remote areas with no power supply

I've been having some problems with mobile reception lately (one of the joys of rural living it seems). Signal strength seems to have decreased recently so I have difficulty receiving a call, or even getting notification of messages. Discussions with Telstra are under way, but please don't think I'm neglecting your calls. I may not know of them for most of a day, but I will respond promptly when I get your message, or send a text to 0417 770 765.

Close focus lens accessory
I can produce custom fitted lenses which allow the camera to focus at ranges less than 1 m, down to about 15 cm. This allows the camera to be used for some interesting projects, such as nest box monitoring, surveying for small mammals, reptiles and even insects (although the last is best in time-lapse mode). The lens is mounted using magnets, which attach to a small metallic mounting plate stuck to the camera, so they can be easily removed if you want to use the camera normally. Check out the modifications
page for more details.
This camera is an excellent choice for users that want to avoid disturbing their sites because they have access to their photos via the Blackbox . The wireless range between the camera and the Blackbox receiver is up to 150m. It is therefore possible to retrieve your photos while staying away from the monitored area. In case of theft or damage done to the camera, this system of wireless backup can be very effective. Up to 10 cameras can be linked to a single receiver.
