New trail camera using the XLP board

Just finished a new camera setup using the XLP board from Whitetail Supply. I've been trying to get the second picture faster for the trails. I Tried several different boards using a fast picture mode but have been less than satisfied with most of them.

This board uses 2 small round batteries that set on the board so there's no need for a nine volt battery. Saves space in the case and is easy to hook up to the camera.
The setting I'm using will take a fast first picture and then follow up with 7 pictures as fast as the camera can recharge the flash. The best part is the sensor doesn't have to pick up any movement. Will get some pictures without an animal but should get some good pictures that would have missed using a 10 second delay. In low light the times will vary from 2 to 4 seconds between pictures.

I set the camera out Friday so can't wait to see how it works.

Very impressive work on this new trail camera. I didn't know the XLP board would operate this way. That's amazing. Please post the results at RDHC in the picture forum as soon as you have something to share!

Your trail camera efforts are absolutely amazing. I've shared many of your pictures with others. Everyone is amazed at the quality of the photos, especially the bird photos.

Wow, I am amazed how that board operates as well. I never heard of anything like that. The pictures are amazing, the work that you must put into this must be a very big challenge for you and your reward is the people that levae you compliments. I am very pleased with your pictures.

The strobe does not seem to bother your animals for repeat photos?
