does anybody use a ratchet strap (rope or otherwise)to secure their cam to a tree? and also what about using something like an antifogger , or rainex to keep the camera's view from being blocked, would one of these type of products work?
I use a ratchet strap to secure my cameras. I put a stick-on bubble level on top so I can make sure the camera is pointed horizontally instead of into the sky or ground. If it's out of level I cut a wedge from a twig and shim it level.
I have been using chain to secure my cameras from being stolen but after humping two cameras and two chains about a half mile last weekend, I'll go with cables from here on.
