Panny SZ5 with Safari Camera Controller, Opto Backpacker and Flash Backpacker. Used a Vivitar 2800 for the slave flash housed in a shallow electrical box with cover. Camera will take 1280x720 HD video clips during the day with external mic for audio and still photos with slave flash at night or 24 Hour Still Photos. 6 AA batteries for camera externals, 3 AA batteries for Safari board power and 4 C cells for slave flash power. 10" MCM Electronics case with replacement 3/16" rope seal was used for the build with Joe's Camera Mount on the back.

Not much action around my house other than the occasional bird, squirrel, cat or armadillo.

Background noise in the video is from the traffic on the highway

Very nice build Ralph ... Videos have great clarity and sound. Night pics are good as well. Should be a great camera for sure.
