I think so, it capture many shades of the blue spectrum. I'm asuming the humidity must be around 30% or so?

Has that view from the airplane feel to it.

I do believe you have put a new camera in there! Yes?

Yes, new camera. The best is yet to come however; once the webcam page is redesigned for the new logos, the North view along with most of the others will provide high-resolution images and timelapse videos.

Very very cool! Thanks for all the work you folks are doing on this. You know how much we like the web cameras.

Being the night observer, it looks right to me.

It looks wonderful and white to me. The link that was in the post is to the live camera, not an archived image. So, you looked at a "live" image on the web camera at night - and it was black out.

At a rest stop in NJ yesterday I was spinning through the North camera images and was disappointed with the image quality. A few hours up the road I realized since I was in the car the cell connection was compressing the images to improve page loading speed. I was tired and forgot to connect those 2 dots.

Now that I am connected at the cabin the quality is wonderful. The quality issue I had was with myself.

Again, you guys are awesome! Can't wait for the new page!:)

What do you think about the North sunrise and sunset?

Funny, I don't always look at the morning time lapse videos, but this morning looked intriguing. I was first surprised by the size of the image as it played and the image quality. Oh yeah, the over and undercast was pretty spectacular too. While many times we seem to get a little too keyed in on the technical aspects of all this, I have to remember that the mountain is such a place that it is hard to not get amazing results there. It is truly a privelidge to be acquainted with this place and although I no longer live in the area, I do appreciate the technology that keeps it just a mouse click away.

The North sunrise video should be great this morning. Here is the 6:45AM North image.

It was very nice with the clouds pouring over into the Great Gulf.

I think the words you're looking for are 'absolutely spectacular'. ;)

Sure would love to be one of those chaps who get to stay up there all winter. Heck of a lot better view out their bedroom window then out mine. :)

I look at a recent image from this new camera and can just image what the view will be like on a non haze, clear day. 'absolutely spectacular' for sure.

One of the early pictures from this morning starts to give us an idea what the view will be like with these new cameras on a clear day.

The North Sunset video tonight is amazing to watch. I have been through it 3 or 4 times already - and have saved it. The clouds just keep on rolling by - and stopping right in front of the camera. No clouds to the right. Packed undercast to the left (west). Fun to watch.

Not that this is an easy fix, but why is the north view cam 2/3 sky?

Mike D

Cloud action, my man, cloud action. When the sky is clear it does look dull, I admit, but just look at the blue. The BLUE.

Should actually be an easy "fix". The camera is a PTZ model (pan, tilt, zoom). with a browser they can adjust the camera to look up one notch. Depends on the objective of the camera - snow, ground, auto road traffic control, sky, or weather.

Is that Pinkham or Crawford?

I like to see the sky and the mountains...The mountains are there and are great but as Mike points out it's the sky that is constantly changing.:)

True, I forgot about the clouds. I'll keep an eye out.

On a clear day the image from this web camera has very good color. What AWB (Automatic White Balance) setting are you using. Most Toshiba cameras have the ability to say the setting is outdoors or the type of lighting. There is an automatic setting too.

What are you using and does that vary by camera?

It is set to "Outdoors(Sunlight)". The West View is set to "Fixed Outdoor 2", which is Axis' own language.

On a clear day the new Ravine camera will be great with that setting.

We are starting to see the potential of the new camera. Here is a North image from 3:30 AM this morning. The window was just starting to clear of ice.

My lake camera at midnight had an awesome view.

Brad, how are you getting such a great view at midnight? Was it just light from the moon or does your camera have a low light setting (or IR possibly with pseudo color mapping)?

As an aside, this morning's sunrise video had some pretty good cloud action

Mike D

The clarity of that midnight picture is due to 1) the full moon and 2) the impressive low light quality of that Toshiba camera.

The Toshiba cameras are very low light cameras. They do not have an IR capability. This was completely off the light of the moon.
