    If you want to see how an inexpensive camera works outside, go to my weather website and click on the sky cam. That is the cheapest panasonic made, the BL-10. It is totally exposed on the mast to my anomometer, just a piece of duct tape over the top to protect it, yet it's an indoor camera. It has worked fine to -20F when in Maine. You can also click on the WX underground logo, then click on the picture on that page and you will see archived photos from that camera.

    If you can live with that quality, look around, and don't pay more than $150 for one.

    Thanks all for your help. I will continue my quest for a camera. Although I don't promise not to ask more questions.

    I went there and it is all white. You did get some snow!

    And you have plenty in Maine too. You locked down the MaineCam I see.

    Brad,

    It was clogged w/snow for a time yesterday, but it seems to be OK now. The camera at the camp is just providing stills now because I had a problem with at least one person on a snowmobile site. I'll probably open it up again, but you have a username/password for that right? If not I'll get you one.

    If you wouldn't mind I would like one as well since it is one of my favorites to check along with Brad's.

    I do not recall having one. If I get an ID for something like this as a one time deal, I promptly forget it.

    I put some controls back on the camera so you shouldn't need a login.
