Test on trail cameras

More stump photos, but this was a test using three different cameras to see how the quality of the photos would compare. It's difficult enough getting a hawk photo on a stump, and me wanting the highest quality picture possible, so I used an Olympus 380 @ 2mg, the Sony P32 @ 3.2 mg and the Sony P41 @ 4.1 mg. All were set on the highest resolution and best settings for a close distance.

First: shown below is the Sony P41

Next is the Sony P32

Last is the Olympus 380

With the results I continued to use the 380 on stumps and logs or close trails, the only difference is with the higher mg cameras I can crop the photo a little for a better picture. The Olympus 380 is very fast to take a picture so I use them to test trails for other animals and try to get the pattern of travel, then I can set a better camera along the path and hope for a great picture at night.

Hey Cliff, are you sure that first pic isn't from a museum diorama somewhere? Stuffed on a stump? LOL

Must try more stump sets. You've convinced me.

My neighbor wanted to make a camera trap for home security when he's away, and I talked him into buying an Oly 380. He did a fantastic job of building it, but doesn't use it very often.

Hi Cliff
I really enjoy your blog, and have read most of it already.
I have just started camera trapping in South Africa. I have 1 Bushnell trophy cam. The quality of you images is great.
I was wondering if you make camera's to sell ? You can email me on stevenbenjamin1@gmail.com
Camera's are quite expensive in South Africa.
