I’ve been testing my Bushnell Trophy Cam at a local farm. The camera has performed well so far. I’ve been using the camera with the Bushnell security case, the case works well and enables me to fix the camera to a tree quite easily.
The camera is very is to setup, just add 8 AA batteries, set the camera to the mode you would like to use. Then just switch the camera to on and place the camera where you want it.
I’ve only used the photo mode so far but plan to try the video mode soon.
So far the camera has captured a few birds, the local cat, pheasant and a fox.
The camera has 3 sensitivity modes, on normal it seems to work fine.
When setting the camera I would suggest you think about the position very carefully, think about the sun position throughout the day, you don’t want the sun facing directly into the lens. Something else to think about how low the camera should be, I would say 1m is a good height.
Below are a few examples of the photos the camera has captured so far.
Below are a couple time lapse vids I made from the trophy camera photos over about 1 week of use.
Its very cold in England at the moment, temperatures reaching near -22c, all the lakes are frozen so no fishing for me, see http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/8447023.stm .
As I’ve had some free time I have managed to process some more images from my India trip, I have posted a couple below.
Meenakshi Amman Temple – Madurai – Tamil Nadu
On our trip to India, we decided to make an unplanned visit to Tamil Nadu state.
Our south India driver took us to Meenakshi Amman Temple in Madurai. Madurai city is over 2500 years old, the present temple is believed to have been built in 1600. The detail of the carvings on the outside of the temple are amazing, when you get inside the temple you see some amazing stone work that dates back to 1559. I would definitely recommend visiting the temple with a guide to show you around the different shrines and explain little history about the place, its also nice to walk around and take it in at your own pace.
If you would like to know more information about the temple have a look here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meenakshi_Amman_temple
