Changes in the 3.1.0 Release


Power-saving features have been added to increase battery life by up to 40%. The video resolution has been increased to 720p HD.

Battery Squeeze Technology has been added to extend the camera operation when batteries are low. When the battery level reaches 25%, the camera will not capture videos and a minimum delay is enforced. The minimum delay is 0:15 during the day and 2:00 at night.

The maximum LED power for videos captured at night was increased to 100%.

The timing accuracy of Time Lapse mode has been improved.

Video capture is now supported in Time Lapse mode and is enabled using the slide switch.

Fast‐As‐Possible (FAP) mode has been added and is enabled using parameter P7. When enabled, FAP mode will replace the rotary switch position corresponding to the shortest delay, i.e. 0:05.

Future firmware updates can be read from a common ZIP file.

Changes in the 2.1.0 Release


Improvements have been made to the video color to eliminate the rare occurences of excessive red or green tint videos under certain lighting conditions.

Improvements have been made to the video exposure.

Parameter P6 is a new parameter that sets the ID number of a camera. When set to a number other than 0, the number is displayed in the image footer and also the video title screen for easy camera identification.

Changes in the 2.0.38 Release


Image color has been improved.

As dusk approaches, the infrared flash will be used for pictures sooner. The flash will also remain active longer at dawn.

Changes in the 2.0.28 Release


Better Performance: Image/video quality has been improved:

  • Image contrast has been adjusted to increase detail in the highlights and shadows.
  • Image exposure has been adjusted to provide consistency for different lighting conditions.
  • Image quality has been improved.
  • In Video Plus mode, the video will be taken using the same day/night setting as the still image. (i.e. if an infrared still image was taken, then an infrared video will be taken.)

New Features: Parameters have been added to fine-tune camera operations. (See the user manual for details.)

  • The default video length has been changed to 10 seconds. Additional 20 and 30 second video duration can be enabled using parameters.
  • Image quality can be configured as low or high using parameters.
  • Time Lapse capture mode is now available using parameters (note - this is different than Guard Duty).

The camera delays have changed to allow for a shorter camera delay setting. The following table shows the old and new settings:
