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
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.
