Robin Sandfort @capreolus he/him wildlife biologist with capreolus.at Groups Camera Traps Hi there, did you see this new gadget: spypoint cell-link? This may give our old camera traps a new life. What do you think about it? Has anyone tried a prototype? Greetings from Austria, Robin Expand all Collapse all Oldest first Latest first Most popular Alasdair Davies @Alasdair 6 February 2020 9:41pm Hi @capreolus This is very interesting indeed. I don't believe it's out yet, but a number of us on Wildlabs have chatted about this concept before and I spent a number of days / hours playing with various methods to interface with an SD card without the third party camera knowing you are reading and access data. We were able to show it was possible by multiplexing the SD data and switching the bus between reads / writes. however the real kicker was that you're dealing with different makes, models, enclosures, SD-card slots and cameras such as Reconyx used different SD writing methods than say Bushnell or Browning, so I'm interested to see just how many cameras this works with this. There is also the added issue that to get access to the SD slot / card and retain a waterproof enclosure means changing the SD slot or physically getting inside the camera with a modification. Very curious to learn more. Reply X Reply Alasdair Davies @Alasdair 7 February 2020 12:44pm Update (via Twitter). It looks like the actual solution isn't real-time.Hi Alasdair. As far as we understand, you have to go to the camera and connect this device, wait for pictures to transmit, then disconnect and close the camera back up - it still requires that manual action.

Not sure to properly understand this sentence: "wait for pictures to transmit, then disconnect and close the camera back up - it still requires that manual action." The camera in the field won't send automatically the picture taken? Does its possible to ask for a picture from the smartphone app? Tank you.
