Was the homebrew camera hard to do??.......If not super hard I would love to hear about it and maybe give one a try.
I'll tell you that it's not really hard, but right now the price point on even digital trail cameras is coming down to the point that it's not that financially advantageous to build one. If you're up for the challenge of making one and have at least some propensity for soldering then it's really fun. I've made two 35mm cameras, one costing me about $50 and the other about $60 (including the cameras bought on ebay).

If you are up for the challenge, don't mind spending a little more, but want to make a really nice full featured camera then check out the controller boards and kits available at http://www.pixcontroller.com I believe that site is actually by someone who took the plans available at Jesse's hunting page to the next level : http://www.jesseshunting.com/site/homebrew-cams.html

Sorry I haven't checked in in a while, looks like we got the red logo and Atlasman is our captian. Great! Now I can get some rest![8D]
And I wasn't offended Browning 1, but I guess the red logo ismore politically correct![&:][8D] No big deal! We'll kill a buch of great bucks with any logo!!!

Logo looks great. Can someone make it a link like last time so I can redo this one. I really suck at this thing.

Hey nice logo

47 loooooooooooooong days and counting!

So for Trae, and anyone else interested, I built a couple of game cams using the plans I got from Jesse's Hunting Page.
The basic parts are simple:
PIR sensor ($8 light kit at Walmart)
A Canon Owl camera ($30 (or less maybe now)on ebay)
An ammo can (5$ from sportsmans guide or at a surplus store)
Some glass or photo filter lenses (free to $20)
A relay, a couple switches, a couple resistors, leds and diodes, a couple connectors. ($20 altogether)
Glue, hook up wire, soldering iron, solder

THe trick is to first modify the sensor according to the plans, then get it to turn on your led. Then wire the camera to the sensor (using a connector if you're smart along with an on/off switch and attach/insert/arrange it all in the ammo can. It's not hard, but it can be frustrating. I started simple with my first camera and luckily chose an easy sensor (Radio SHack model, curently discontinued [:@] ) My "new and improved" model is too sensitive and takes too many pictures. My last roll had 18 pictures of one fawn taken all in one minute, plus the buck I posted pictures of the other day.

I've made three attempts at a counter / delay circuit all to no avail. Either I get it wrong altogether or I screw it up[:@] Good thing I gave up being an electrical engineer eh?[8D]
