hello, and good day to all. i was just wondering are we on a merry go round this morning? just keeps going aroundin cicrle.
going around cam
PS: i will have a look at the video later, thank you...i just had some scrambled eggs and home fries.. lol
don't think i could handle the video now if it looks like what you say. lol
i had noticed as far back as Birding Day, that around 9ish to 10ish CAT each morning. the cam panning was zooming about like mad..stopping for a mere second or two and moving on again. And that happened for more than a week and happened each day.
my thoughts at that time were that either a new person learning the controls, simply by the way it acted..and then would try to do a slow pan..or tilt or zoom..oh, and the zooms during those times were quickly in and out...leaving one just a bit more nauselous. lol
well, i guess we will soon find out.
The video is posted in the Streaming cam video and sounds, here: http://www.africam.com/boma/viewtopic.php?p=147914#147914
Hi there, from what friends told me they saw? i wasn't online to see what you described.
it seems like they might have tried to set an automatic panning? that would also stop at certain points on the cam window?
People told me it was just like when National Geographic magazine site tried to set Pete's Pond , Botswana, tried to set it and the guy had it panning so fast that all were getting nauseous from watching it the first night it was on. LOL . They finally tamed it to a nice slow speed.
Since you saw it, do you think that might have been someone trying to setup what i described above?
Audrey, I'm not sure what was going on, but it started at 3:56 and didn't stop until 4:20 or so. I have a video of it, and was able to clock the revolutions. We were going at 1 revolution every 35 seconds. (Not good for the tummy needless to say.) Hopefully someone will give us a heads up about the cam problems that seem to be occurring this past week or so. I just hope that it is camera operator or software issues and it's not indicative of a deeper cam problem. We don't want to lose our eye into South Africa. :cry:
