which camera for distance night viewing?
« on: August 14, 2014, 06:46:24 AM »

My back barn looks out over a small field that reaches back 100 yards. I'd like to setup a camera in the peak of the barn to point towards the field and capture images of some of the wildlife that comes in at night. The barn is wired with ethernet and electricity. The field is fairly far away from the city so there isn't a lot of light besides moonlight. I don't need to see a lot of details of the wildlife - shape and form is fine (enough to distinguish a deer from a coyote  :) ).
Any suggestions for which camera I should be looking at?
Thanks for your help,

Depends on how wide an area it might be.

The 2 mega pixel models should be ok.  2230 is indoor.
There's an outdoor version of it.

You can always set up an nice ir illuminator to light up the backyard. Oh yeah those can get hot so be careful mounting as your barn could burn down.

There's also a 3716 model but that's kind of pricey.
