I've posted some great videos captured by the BirdCam prototype at a remote web page. We had always planned for the BirdCam to take both photos and video, but for some reason, I expected that the most common usage would be for still images. After having time to test the cameras and play with the video function, my mind has changed about this.
The videos reveal so much about behavior, I really think people are going to be fascinated when they start reviewing candid scenes taken in their backyards. There are many ways the BirdCam enhances the bird-feeding/-watching hobby...and video does an amazing job of showing how much more is happening on their feeders every day than most people realize.
Take a look at these shots...cardinals yelling at other birds, doves chasing off mockingbirds, Carolina wrens - everywhere, but usually alone - dark-eyed juncos have a shy "where's waldo" presence...enjoy!
KEEP IN MIND...
These are early test shots. Some are overexposed and most do not have sound. Both of these issues have been resolved and will not be a problem with the final BirdCam.
