if you guys were going to try and build the ultimate camera using the pirs,cameras and timers etc that are commonly used on this site what would be the ulimate combination of parts to make the best camera.
home depot electrical box 6"x6"X4"
welby/tinhorn one shot delay timer
canon sure shot owl pf
12v 1.2ah battery
i have built 12 of them, 2 for me, 10 for friends, i can knock one out in a couple hours, depending on the camera cost it runs $75 to $95
I have both the PVC and 30cal. boxes in use and allthough
the PVC makes for a smaller and nicer looking cam , the ammo can is more convenient to use. There are no sensor wires moved when it's opened up , and no screws or wingnuts to drop. ( my sensors are mounted outside of the box and can.)
if the ULTIMATE cam is what your look for, i assume you want the following;
ext. event counter/reset
pic delay timer
shutter out-put timer
walk test LED
adj. PIR sensitvity
hinged W/latch encloser
long bat. life
all for say, $125.00-$135.00? you need hamiltoes board, a pellican 1120 box,and the OWL PF/DATE.
if you can solder you can put the board togather your self. he supplys inst. and parts. its a high end unit when your done for 1/3 of the price.
