Boar....the time lapse frequency is how often the camera takes pictures after the initial activation. Let say a bear comes in and trips the sensor and gets it's picture taken. The time lapse frequency just tells you how often additional pictures are taken if he hangs around. If you set the time lapse to small you'll get lots of pictures of the same critters.

Once you put an SD card in the game camera, all the pictures go on the card. It doesn't fill the internal memory first. Make sure to buy yourself a few SD cards. You can switch them out without removing the camera and check them on any digital camera you have at home (if they take SD cards). Don't buy SD cards from Cabelas or any sporting good stores. Watch the adds for the electronic stores and you can pick them up for about $10 for a 1 gig card.

Since I know you are bear hunting, let me suggest picking up an old ammo box and cutting a few holes to make a protective housing. Bears can be pretty hard on cameras.

Hmmmm I guesse I'm still a little confused, sorry. Is'nt that what Image delay an multi image are set for? I under stan setting image delay for number minuets between pictures when an aminal is detected an multi image is number of pictures with in the time set for image delay. So if I set the Image Delay for 1 Minuet an the multi Image for 2, the camera will take 2 pictures in that one minuet with 13 second delay between pictures. Right? So Im just a little fuzzy on the Time Lapse Frequency, Sorry. So If I dont want alot of pictures of the same animal, a mid range setting on the TLF should work.

Boar...I think I might have steered you wrong. I just looked at the directions and Time Lapse Frequency has to do with being in Time Lapse Mode. Bascially if you put it in Time Lapse Mode it takes pictures at a specified frequency instead of being triggered by movement. The unit of time that it waits before taking the picture is set by the time lapse frequency. For instance if you set time lapse frequency to 4 hours and put the camera in time lapse mode it would take a picture every 4 hours.

Thanks Hub, I aprreciate the effort, I've been playing with the camera quite abit an am sarting to get a good understanding of it. Boy for a trail cam, it's pretty sophisticated. Thanks again. I've been working on fabricating a steel housing at work, an was wondering should I cut out each individual piece like the of course the motion sensor an shutter an IR areas or just cut out a big square. I work with a plasma cutter an am very versed in the plasma cutting department, I gonna use 1/6 steel sheeting any thing bigger would be to heavy of a finished product, I figured on cutting out each individual area, making a duplicate protective face plate. Thanks boar

Boar...I've seen commercially made protective cases and they cut out each little area. I just cut out the whole thing because I'm lazy. My bears typically haven't tried to chew the game cam, they just swatted them off the trees.

yea, but I have fun fabricating things instead of buying them. Thanks again for your help. Boar

    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
