    I started experimenting with my Nikon Coolpix S4 Point and Shoot camera because I am able to set it up with a time-lapse function. Some companies call it time-interval.
    All of my D1 cameras don't have it built in (the D2 series does), I need to buy a timer remote cable.
    I have two cameras that can run remotely...my D50 which is responsible for the first few Grosbeak photos and the S4 Coolpix. I can leave the Coolpix unattended. The D50 I have to click the wireless remote and make sure that the camera is facing me and that I can access the left side of the D50.
    I saw a family of Grosbeaks at my feeder, so I had to hurry and setup a quick remote setup.

    Here's the family that I saw:

    Here's the setup I used, this is for the last photo. I had the D50 set up at first:

    Here's another shot I got:
    View attachment 95437

    And then another curious guy:
    View attachment 95438

    Sometimes they turn and pose full-body for me:
    View attachment 95439

    Now, I definitely want to get that timer remote, so I can try it with my D1X camera :)

    Cool setup Lisa. I need to try that on some of my birdies. :smile:
