Leave the cam to record for days, weeks, or months and when you're ready, take out the inserted memory card.

Advanced features of the BirdCam 2.0 include the motion-sensitive mode (auto mode), timelapse mode, or the ability to use it in manual and video programs to handle most backyard applications.

        Comments about Wingscapes BirdCam 2.0 Motion-Activated Digital Wildlife Camera:

        I chose this camera rather than a trail camera because of its ability to focus at 18" rather than over 3 feet. The camera was very easy to set up and use. I mounted it on a pole about 2' from my bird feeders and set on medium sensitivity. It worked well for videoing the hummingbirds and birds, but the quality was, by me, very poor. The photos were much better, but I mainly wanted it for the video. I did not keep the camera because of the quality. In the camera's defence, it is cheap and I'm not sure one should expect much more from it. The lens is covered with a transluscent plastic that was not even polished well. If there were a more expensive item with better video, I would get it, but I can't find any with close focus.

        • Motion sensor poor

        Best Uses

        • Bird watching
        • Time lapse

        Comments about Wingscapes BirdCam 2.0 Motion-Activated Digital Wildlife Camera:

        Timelapse worked fine, and image was acceptable. The movement sensor didn't seem to work consistently. I selected "no delay", and expected the BirdCam to take a picture when I moved my hand or body in front of it. Nothing happened for five or six walkbys or hand waves and then it would suddenly flash. The manual doesn't explain why this is, and so I returned the camera. No delay should mean no delay. This was all on the high sensitivity setting. I might have just gotten a bad one.

          Comments about Wingscapes BirdCam 2.0 Motion-Activated Digital Wildlife Camera:

          We use this camera to photograph critters as they go through a hole in the chain link fence that separates our vineyard from a chicken facilty. Right away we photographed 2 cats and 3 skunks at night. High sensitivity...too many photos of moving grass; medium sensitivity works great. Have not het photographed the animal that made the hole in the chain link fence. Works great. Only problem is reading the menu in bright daylight.
