    New build for one of our members

    An AT member contacted me last week and asked me to do a build for him but was not exactly sure which setup might best fill his needs. His primary requirements were flash range and picture quality, as well as good battery life in the field. After a few pms were exchanged he eventually left it up to me to choose which camera to put in the case and for me it was a very easy decision to make.
    I think your gonna like it when it gets to North Carolina next week Phil.



    Sony DSC-S600 camera, Otterbox 3000 case modified in 3D camo, SnapshotSniper SSII control board with the High Performance Wide Angle fresnel and dual D battery holder wired to the camera to get you the battery life needed between card checks.

    There is a tube molded thru the case Phil and it is designed so a Masterlock Python 5/16" cable can be threaded thru the tube for mounting purposes and also to keep the case from being opened. About as theft proof as it can be the way it is designed but like everything else if someone wants it bad enough they will find a way.
    This is just an example showing the cable most of us use, shop around as prices vary as well as size. 5/16" and smaller diameter will fit, anything larger will not.

    I'm sure he will Owen, not a trailcamera out there that can top the picture quality of a homebrew with a Sony S600 in the case. And we both know that's it's not just an opinion, it's a fact.

    Appreciated the comments all, easily my favorite camera to put in a build. The bears seem to like the builds too, Jeff knows that from first hand experience....

    Varies by the camera used and the person doing the build more than anything else. Feel free to send a pm if you wish and we can go over some of your options.

    Nice.
    If it looks like crap, smells like crap, tastes like crap, lies like crap; it’s more than likely a politician from Illinois.
