Yup, the little over the counter cams certainly have their place and are extremely helpful when running video and trying to make some educated observations regarding animal behavior and relationships to camera stations. I never tire of watching good wildlife video clips.

One thing I noticed the other day while messing with the menu on a D3300 is that you can set the camera accessory port to trigger either photos or videos. So, you only would need to have your PIR controller fire once and then again 30 seconds or so later for each motion event. No hacking.


It is my understanding that the D3300 will indeed start video with the wired remote. Half press will start live view and then a complete press will start video. To stop video another press of the shutter button. That's great. But, does the camera stay in live view mode? If it does, the battery will die in a few hours. I don't have a D3300 here to test with but maybe you could give this a try with yours.

Jeff- As I recall, live view on D3300 turns off after 5 minutes.

The D7200 allows re-assign of shutter button to video. Live view shuts off quickly.

That's great. Maybe Nikon is finally catching on.

Thanks for the info.

Just checked it-

In video mode, both cameras set for the minimum live view sleep delay of 5 minutes.

The test showed-
D3200 sleep in 5-minutes
d7200 sleep in 5-minutes

I could have sworn the D7200 live view went to sleep quicker than the 3300. But unless there is a setting I forgot about, looks like it's 5 minutes minimum.
