Pleasure Vinkie!

I think one of my Kruger Park animal friends (with four legs) must have bumped the cam housing a bit to the right or the pole it is attached to, causing the left hand side to be out of view in the wide angle shot (whole water hole) as well as in the zoomed in shot of the left hand side of the waterhole. The camera pans and zooms according to it fixed presets based on it 'home position' and the 'home position' was moved slightly I assume, causing the the angles to be a bit off! I have checked it and reset it again!

You should have full view now again of the whole waterhole (zoomed out) plus far left (and edge) of the left hand side of the waterhole as well as right hand side of the water hole and panning shots of the centre of the waterhole with both foreground and background visible.

Enjoy the webcam!

Have a good weekend too and thanks for the PM pointing this out!
