Congratulation - Would enjoy seeing your first pictures, and reading about your equipment. Wal*Mart will scan 5 pictures on to a 3-1/2 floppy.

I know how you feel.  I just pulled the film out of my camera for the first time.  Can't wait to get it developed tomorrow.  This weekend there are two hunting shows going on (Bass Pro & Buckarama).  Throw in some good pics and I'll have enough to get me through the rest of the summer.  

Thanks to all those on this and other sites that helped a novice like me build a camera that worked perfect the first try.

Congrats on your camera Mike. The lithium battery inside the camera runs the display, change it and see what happens. You can find out how to remove it in the owner's manual and Radio Shack has the replacement batteries.

On my first cam I used a Owl PF date, MS20 pir, a one shot timer set for 7 seconds, 12volt rechargable 7 ah bat., and a mtm sportsman dry box($6.99).Of course none of this couldn't have happen with out this site. As you can see size was not important on this one. I did get some good pics of deer,ferral hogs, one bobcat,and too many raccoons.Thanks for all the help.I will try to scan my pics.My next cam may be digtal if I can find out about that $30 Wally cam stays on or not.
