It's simple to set up!
Just screw or bolt the camera to the wall or roof of your nest box (stainless steel bolt and thumb screw provided) and attach the cable. Plug the other end of the cable into the power adaptor and the SCART or AV socket on your TV. The camera lens can be easily focused by turning it with your fingers. To focus simply place the focus chart near the bottom of your box and rotate the lens until the test pattern on your TV picture is clear. It's a good idea to set up the camera in your box near the TV first as this will make it easier to focus. The camera can focus from down to within a couple of centimetres to infinity (further away), depending on your needs.

  • 1/3" sensor (CCD) with 69� angle

Camera viewing distance

The cameras are ideal for nestbox use, focusing from 5cm to infinity, allowing you to it for many applications. The diagram to the right gives you a guide to approximately how much of your nest box will be in view when you fix your camera at different distances. For example if you fit the camera 30cm above the floor of the box you would get an approximate area of 27 cm by 20 cm in view. You will be able to focus the lens by undoing a little grub screw under the lens and turning the lens (Black part) anti clockwise.


Please note that the lighter the colour of the interior of your nest box (including the walls) the brighter your picture picture will be (day or night).


Having the correct IR levels are also important. This camera is ideally suited for handykam nest boxes and there is the correct balance between natural light during the day and correct focal distance between camera and base.
