Thank you for the zooming on the new cams, Danie, it's always fun when you show us things like the birds on the bush and the thorn tree flowers (aren't they early or is that normal for the lowveld). :clap: :clap: :clap: :gflower:

And thank you to those who saved all the piccies which Danie zoomed. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Hi There
I'm new to the forum and wanted to ask about picture intervals on the webcams. The website says that pics are taken every 15 seconds but its more like 30 and even 45 seconds.
Any info on that?

Also the camera angles: I have read the official position on this and understand.
But is there a survey of forum members to show what the view of the majority is?
The other day a cheetah came to the Nossop waterhole and during the 7 minutes it was there we saw 2 or 3 pictures of it. very disappointing.

I'm sure these are very old topics, so I'd just like to know where to read the threads on this because I have searched for threads on webcam intervals and nothing came up.
Any guidance would be of much value thanks.
