BirdCam! Wingscapes' Digital Camera for Birdwatchers
Now you can photograph your birds and still breathe! The Wingscapes BirdCam is designed to resemble a birdhouse and is weatherproof, infrared motion-activated and captures both photo and video. It's probably best suited for your backyard, or somewhere you can leave the camera for a while -- that's how you'll capture your best stuff. You can secure it to a tree or put it on a stake with your favorite bird feeder. This would be a great way to catch evildoers too -- squirrels, grackles and other food-snatching creatures. The BirdCam can support up to 4GB of memory cards, connects to your PC via USB and is powered by 4 D batteries. You can operate it via remote control in Auto, Manual or Timelapse. Focal distance is 18 inches, so be sure to set up the camera at least that far from a feeder. We had to do some math on the megapixels, but it appears to be 3.2-megapixel, which is pretty good considering you've got close-ups of birds and shouldn't need to crop into the image. Video resolution is 640 x 480 in 10-second clips. You can buy the BirdCam through Amazon for $249.99. Also look into the Mounting Arm for $29.00. Go to Wingscapes to see their video gallery and photo gallery -- it's amazing! Smile for the birdie!
