Hi Everyone!
My name is Kristóf Diós, I'm from Hungary. I've been following this forum a while ago but I was a silent viewer until now. Firstly, I want to say a big thank you for you guys, I've learned a lot from this forum and got inspired by your amazing camera trap pictures. :Bow
So after many years of dreaming, saving money, getting ideas, wondering about other people's work in this January I was finally able to build my own trap. Since then it's all about the settings and tests. In this winter I badly wanted a snowy fox shot, but only got buzzards, dogs, hares, bittern, water rail and had a hard period because of otters.

Last week I set up my camera trap in a near forest. Found a game trail under a fallen tree so I chose this place. Hoped for roe deers and foxes, got a brown hare at dusk. When this pic was taken I was 130kms far away, studied for a phisiology test, haha. So please let me know what you think about this one because I've just started camera trapping. Tomorrow I'll set up a more interesting set for a carnivore...

Canon 1100D with 18-55mm kit lens, Camtraptions PIR & wireless triggers, 2 SB-28s, custom homemade case, camouflage net.

All the best,
Kristóf

That's a fine photo; if you can keep doing that well you'll have a great collection of pictures. Patience is the key to getting photos of the species you want. Some of my locations are very good for a while, then may be poor for a year or so and then become good again. It all depends on food sources, population dynamics and a host of other factors unknown to us.

Welcome to the forum Kristóf.

I like your set-up and wow! what a great pic of the Rabbit. Is that a Pelican 1150 case? How far are the distances between the flashes and the camera? Eager to see some more from your part of the world.

Thank you everyone for the kind words! It's not a pelican case, it's just the cheapest waterproof case on the market, costs about 10 euros but does the job very well. I'm really bad in estimating, that's why I included the werk picture, I hope it shows the distance of the flashes. Here's an inside pic of the case:

:oops I don't know how I missed seeing that 2nd. picture :Hammer

I was wondering what case you used because your 18-55 kit lens barely protrudes beyond the front of your case. I'm going to build me a Canon DSLR rig with an 18-55 kit lens as well. In that build, I don't want to have the lens protruding beyond the outer face of the case if I can help it. Much like the build of yours. Darn Bears will rip it off too easily and walk away with a good lens.
