What about to improve camera work at NK

Dear friends I know that the priority is to bring back EP ...

But we missed NK cam too ...In fact lately there is none behind the cam..It is pity to have  a cam with such abilities and to get some pics that someone gets from a refreshing camera.

My suggestion ...to talk with the lodge people if there someone who really wants to do the job otherwise ...please try to find a volunteer  ...at least for a while ...

Last time this cam worked well was in September ..the last two months it becomes worse and worse continously

I enjoy having the cam running while I write school papers to glance up at while I work. Im also keen on birds and enjoy trying to identify what I see on the cam. What I have wondered is why the camera just sits looking at an empty waterhole when I can see birds wading in the water or perched on the tree branch. I understand someone probably cannot be moving the camera around all the time, but there are times I know someone is working the cam but they seem to pan the grass, ignoring the birds, and then leave it on the waterhole. If there are not other things to see, might as well try to zoom in on some birds a little more often?

Yesterday the person running the cam did a great job of capturing the animals but also going after the birds a little as well.

I have a suggestion for lightning strike prevention.  Here in the middle states of the USA, our farmhouses have had lightning rods.  These are rods that are placed on top of the building, and are grounded with a cable that runs from the roof (attached to the rod) to the ground below.  The lightning rod is insulated so that the electricity that travels through it cannot harm the building, but runs through the cable to the ground.  Thus, the rod is positioned so that it will draw lightning, but prevent it from damaging the house.

This is an old practice, and has been mostly forgotten in more modern times... but I wonder if you could not invent a lightning rod for the cameras?

Just an idea...

Kidnapping Karin is a nice idea! Count me inCool

Her sence of humor is great also! I never forget the fake Croc she fooled us with Laughing

But to be serious i wasnt able to look at the NK cam lately, but it is the webcam i love most from all the webcams i've seen.

Hi Fani

I have not been able to watch the cams for a few months and was not aware that NK was not functioning well. What a shame as NK is/was a great cam!

Have you had any response yet from Africam or the Mods? I can only guess that it is difficult for the lodge to find volunteers to operate the cam and they don't have enough staff available who are free to do it.
