Default Ghostman's Sony W220 Build- Viv 2800- BF Custom board

Did this one for a friend down in Georgia. It is a Sony W220 12mp. Has a custom programmed BigFoot control board. Has Daytime Trail Mode for 2 second pics and automatically switches to a 9 second delay at night for Slave flash use. This allows the Slave to fully recharge before firing the next pic. Also does Daytime only HD Video. I relocated the microphone to outside the case for awesome sound on the videos as well. Has a Vivitar 2800 Slave flash controlled by the BigFoot Slavemaster! I used a Brown HPWA so therefore I had to relocate the control boards CDS sensor and I also relocated the walk test LED so it is now viewable. Has 3 AA's for external camera power. 8 AA's for Slave flash power. Control board runs off 3 AAA's which last about 6 months on average. Has a custom bracket Tri-pod adapter bracket for mounting onto a tri-pod. Also has the pipe-thru for the Master Lock Python Cable. All this is housed in a Pelican 1060 dipped in Ultimate camo with matching snorkel and HPWA.

Here is some test pics I just ran out and took. Tree is EXACTLY 52' and fence is 62' Feet (NOT YARDS)!!!! Not too shabby for a Viv 2800. Here is a Daytime test video with sound:

Wow Jim, I can't believe how well that audio picks up from that far away. Great job as usual. I still want you to do a H70 for me but I'm trying to trade around some other cams to aquire the H70.

Blessings.......Pastorjim

OK Pastor Jim. I emailed you back I hope you got it. This is the exact build I suggested for your H70. Only difference is it will have a H70 instead of the W220. Very versatile unit!!
