wildlife at night
« on: September 08, 2016, 11:45:59 PM »
Canon Rebel T5i
Magic Lantern

First question:
I have a bear and a fox, not necessarily related, honking around my cabin at night. I want to take wildlife photos at night. Hopefully a moon is not necessary. If i use Magic Lantern's intervalometer, is there a setting that i could use so it is not blurry?

I could use a motion trigger. I found this one.
Micnova LC03C Lightning & Motion Sensor Trigger $90
But the reviews are not good.
I know that Magic Lantern has a motion detector but even at the most senstive setting, i think #1, i cannot get it to trigger without wearing a headlight. Even though the bear seems quite friendly, he (she?) refuses to wear a headlight.
Are there better solutions?

I know this is probably a common question but searching night and wildlife i havent found any threads.

Maybe the whole scene should be set up beforehand. Try to follow the risky but successful way of Jonny Armstrong.

A plenty of broken hardware and a bunch of brilliant photos )
