View Full Version : Homemade Trail Camera
12-07-2006, 11:29 AM
back before "The Great Crash of '06" there was a thread on how to make your own trial camera. Could some one please see if they could find the designs or point me in the right direction. Thanks

Finally this site is also from hags house, but it is the single most helpful site I could find http://www.easy3dcamo.com/building.html, its got pretty much any info you might need.

Have yall ever built a camera? If so, how hard is it to actually do, and which camera is the easiest to modify

They answered a lot of questions for me. I built 2 using sony S600 digital camera's. 6mp pictures with a flash that reaches out to 20-25 yards. Commercial game camera's do not come close to the quality. It was a little imtimidating opening up the camera's and soldering the tiny contact points, but they work and that was my first time soldering. I am thinking about converting one of them to IR, but I'm not 100% sold on that. My next project for the cams is to use rechargeable batteries and somehow figure out a way to use a solar panel. I live about 3 hours from my lease and only make it out to fill feeders when needed and the batt's have'nt beel lasting long enough.
