These are the images delivered to my email client which are smaller than those saved onto the SD card.
The camera runs on 12 AA batteries that are inserted in the base below the drop down door (flap). The drop down door also has the control buttons and color viewing screen. The setup is basically the same as last years model. We were told that there were several improvements in all areas on this camera including the gsm function. We felt that it deserved another look.
This camera can operate as a stand alone camera in photo, video or time lapse modes while also being able to transmit photos to your email or phone as text messages.
Sensing range tests revealed triggers at 50 feet for 49 degree temperatures.
To assist in the MMS setup a utility is supplied. Setup.exe is provided to configure the camera and/or the mms settings for the camera You use the setup to save config files to the root of the SD card. When you insert the updated SD card and turn the camera to setup, it will load and apply the new settings. You can use the camera setup menus to configure MMS as well. I find that using the Windows setup exe a bit easier and much faster.
