    Thanks. We played with the color settings for the lens now that the camera is mounted outside on the lake. The colors seem to be a lot better.

    Videos could be done by having a fast set of images sent to the photo web site for a period of time. I do not have the ability to just grab during a period of time, then go to a less frequent interval for the rest of the day - in an automatic way. Maybe one morning I could do this by hand and grab the images to see what I can put together.

    Maybe I can create a non-profit organization studying water quality and wind patterns. Then membership could fund my toys.

    Okay, you asked for it. I neglected to lock down the camera so others could not move the camera. So, part way through it moves around a bit. I will do better next time.

    This video starts at 4:00 AM and runs to 5:50 AM for 1,072 images 5 seconds apart.

    Brad, that was really cool! I love the mist on the water and the colors in the still water as the sun was rising. Then the beam of sun as it comes over the trees. Then the water begins to ripple with the first breezes of the morning. Very nice. That looked like about 2 frames/sec. Have you tried to run it faster or is that about max? Either way I enjoyed it.

    The software I used can do each image at 0.5 seconds as the minimum time looking at the image. I have the gap between images set to zero. Since the images were taken at 5 second intervals, the video was running at 10x speed.

    The camera is set now to record tomorrow's sunrise from 4am to 6am at 10 second intervals. We will see what that looks like with the same 0.5 second time on the video. The MWO sunrise and sunset videos are really 30 second interval images.

    You can really tell the difference. 30 sec. intervals is almost too long but their movies seem to move a lot faster even though it's more choppy.

    I can do a 20 second try the next morning. getting the images is easy. Putting the video just takes computer think time.

    Well, I have a 2 hour video from this morning's sunrise (non-event) taken with 10 second images. It was so foggy you can not see much of anything.

    Sunrise this morning was not very interesting. it was done at the 10 second interval again trying to get a good example to use for comparison to the next interval the camera can deal with which is 30 seconds.

    Here it is if anyone wants to watch it.

    We are planning on having our "Dock Party" Sunday morning starting at 9AM. I am planning on opening the camera up for public access (no password required) while we are working - and maybe for the whole day. I will give you access to the pan/tilt, zoom, audio, presets functions on Sunday. Since we all will be down at the lake, I may even try to give access to the different levels of resolution on the camera. Then you can see what 1280x960 looks like (huge).

    That was certainly better than the day before. I liked it. Did you notice the little bug that flies into view on the right side of the image around 4 min. 21-24 secs. The reflection of the clouds in the water is cool too.
