Cats With Cameras
Posted by Casey on August 6, 2007
A friend ordered a couple of these cat-cams. I was figuring out how it worked yesterday and used Meka . . .
. . . as the test cat. Setting the timing on the camera was trial and error, but once I think I got it, Meka got a new addition to her collar and she didn’t like it at first. Meka is a very active and energetic cat, so after she ran around for an hour, I took the camera out and no pictures because she shook out the battery (which is exposed and popping it in and out is an important part of setting the timing for the automatic shutter).
I tried again and we had a successful trial run of the camera — mostly because Meka was so tired from running around, she sat around and eventually fell asleep.
It’s the world from a cat’s POV.
The other problem with the camera, besides the battery popping out and all the pictures taken to that point are lost, is that the camera itself falls out of the little plastic box it’s in. Things that a little masking tape can’t remedy.
More experiments to come . . . So stay tuned.
