View Full Version : Cam Trakker
Hello, I just got my new Cam Trakker last week and have it at work already. I did have a hard time finding the recomenced film (Fuji Pro 800, Kodak Gold 1000, and Fuji Pro 1600) though. Anyone know where I can get them? Any other general tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
JB - Welcome!
Advice - Ummm...load film and have fun!
Most of us, but not all, have homemade cams but I believe Spectr17 know someone that has a couple of the Camtrakkers. I believe they are very good units and you should get excellent results. Be sure to post some pics if you can...We like pics!

Welcome JB...... you have come to the right place for trail cam info. As gizz has said most of us have "homebrew cams" of which I have 1 and am working on #2 ,but before I found out that I could build my own I bought a Camtrakker 2000 Model. I have had it over a year now and like it very well. As for the film, I found that Fuji 400 works best but the date/time stamp will not print out well. The film I use most is Kodak 400 MAX and the date/time stamp shows up well. As you will soon find out the trail cam setup is trail and error. Facing the cam north is the best advice I can give you. The sun coming up in the a.m. and setting in the p.m. will set it off and you will get a roll of sunrise and sunset pics with no critters:(. Another tip is to clear out all brush,limbs,weeds, etc. between the cam and where you plan on the critter being. The camera has auto focus so it will focus on the closest object......very upsetting to get a pic of a crystal clear leaf with a fuzzy deer standing only feet behind it....been there, done that! Enjoy your new toy and work a lot of overtime in order to pay those future 1 Hour Photo bills. ### ### ###
