This set is only 6 days old but so far it's proving to be very, very productive for me. The two Wolves were passing through here at a pretty good pace. If it were not for the video, I may not have captured both Wolves with only a camera. These are stills grabbed from 30 second video clips.

Thanks David, I did do a tiny bit of post editing but the learning curve with these commercial video cams is all in cam placement I am finding out. That makes a big difference in the overall image quality IMO. Mind you, lots of sharp edged green foliage helps too. Fine pebbles, sand and light reflecting debris plays havoc with the scenery too. I have to set up my cams in subdued lighting locations with ample greenery or else I risk 100's of false triggers from bright open area lighting and the like. I set all my cams to 1080p @ 30fps. because I mainly target slower moving subjects. Little did I anticipate faster moving subjects like Wolves on the move would be on my list.

Here is a small clip of that video and a link to the complete video of the two Wolves moving through my set. The second Wolf enters the screen at the 20 second mark so be patient. Notice the slight jittery movement in the two Wolves. Remember, this video is set to 1080p @ 30fps and not 60fps. I should have followed your lead David and set all of my video cams to 60fps.

A fun clip, and all the more so with the crows telling the world "we see a big bad wolf".

I'm with David on video speed . . . you should gain clarity at 60 fps, and you'll notice it when you slow the speed down with your movie editor. At 30 fps the shutter speed is too slow to stop quick movements. I think all commercial trail cams automatically adjust exposure with the ISO. That's why videos shot at low light level videos aren't as sharp as those shot in bright light. Your security light with sensor should improve clarity of night video.

Super spots produce super photos. Some are producers year after year while others change constantly... this one seems to be a producer Gary ..
