camera question

Postby Part Time Hunter » Mon Aug 06, 2007 11:22 am

Does anyone know if the wildview cameras shut themselves off when they get full?

i wouldn't see why it would. are you worried about it draining the batteries after the card is full?

i've never used the wildview before so i'm really not sure if it does or not

No, I'm not worried about the batteries, I put my camera out a week ago yesterday, I went to check it yesterday and it was in the off position, it had 300 pictures, about 60 were good pictures. I don't know if someone found it and was messing with it or if it goes to the off position when full. I don't really think it would flip itself off.

I'd be willing to bet someone was messing with you.

At least you didn't get a picture of someone flipping you off! :shock: gtk, wasn't it you that posted that pic of the trespassin' woman with the itchy flipping finger?

I think I would rather get a picture of whoever it is, I would kind of like to know who is looking at my spot.

i have heard of coons and squirels climbing on or over a trailcamera and steping on toggle switches therefore turning them off.

could this be a possiblity or is your on off swich inside of the camera?

parttimehunter, that pic was taken several years ago, and I posted it..

I agree with lugnut, if the the switch is on the outside, a squirrel or coon could easily turn it off.. I had squirrel's chew the rubber boots off several of my older trailcams.

Not this time, the switch is inside. Also I think the delay was changed from 1 minute to 20 minutes, I could have left it on 20 miutes by mistake but there is no way it took 300 pics in the off position. I was hoping it had some kind of shut off, but with a manual switch I don't think so. I am going this afternoon to get the SD card and put another camera up to see who is messing with it. I just hope they don't steal it before I can do that.

She kind of acted like she knows you gtk. Just got back from checking my camera and putting another camera up to moniter the original camera, this seems like alot of trouble. Anyway, I got 28 good pics since sunday afternoon, that makes a total of 83 pics in 9 days. Only one buck, he is a shooter but his antlers were blurry and I couldn't tell alot about him.
