Tips and tools from a versatile naturalist-photographer
My buddy Bob Armstrong has experimented with a broad range of cameras for wildlife video and still imagery. Only some of these are triggered by motion on the part of the ‘quarry,’ so my currently preferred label, motion-cams, is in this case better replaced with Bob’s term “remote cameras.”
The unifying characteristic of cameras described in this manual is simply that they are not triggered from the photographer’s hand. Some, like gopros, are simply set out running with an additional battery. And almost any ‘regular’ camera can be placed at an activity hotspot and triggered remotely from an inconspicuous location.
