Friday the 13th









Another IP cam day today. Met up with UPS Jerry at the HWY at noon. Got the new wide angle lens. Took about 2 hours (Benita helped) to get it all together - mounted the new lens and camera in the all weather housing, ran the cable, and rigged it to yet another temporary stand while I ponder the view some more. Found a use for one of the stands I built that aided my truss raising. Also got into the camera configuration menus to bump up the contrast - I'm a big fan of contrast. Took a bit of time to line up the shot - lighting/composition wise. I'm a HUGE fan of lighting and composition as those who have been on the Stickam.com video feed know.... As soon as all the cinematography is zeroed in, it will be time to get back to the production. 61,86,43,0

Well, I was mistaken , I thought that camera was controllable, by you, to move , tilt and zoom. Just another stationary camera huh?

Hey John, I think that is one heavy Camera stand .... Wonder if it is Steer-resistant? If you put it in concrete it will survive ANY weather, but I not sure about the Family member(s) scratching their backs might be another thing. Benita is eye'en up your new addition. Good Luck!
ps How are you powering the system?
