    Came down to my mother's (the farm) to feed cows, meanwhile my son found an oldie. He dug this out of our "hunting room"

    Looking at the hook up process and options of 15 second or 6 minute delay lol. Funny part is, there was a roll of film in the camera....so that's going by 1-hour photo in a bit. (While I explain to my kids what that even is)

    Seen one of these before??

    I was too poor to afford one of those. Between the cost of the camera and the getting film developed it was outside the realm of possibilities for me at the time.

    Luckily I didn't start cam'in until digital cams were fairly common. You could still buy the film style though. Amazing how far we have come in a relatively short amount of time.

    I would say so since no one has cameras with film anymore.

    OK this may age me a little bit, who am I kidding, alot! My first camera, over 25 years ago, was called a Trailmaster. It consisted of two units-a transmitter and a receiver. Then it had a 35mm camera that plugged into the receiver. You could place the camera up to 20ft away from the transmitter/receiver units. It made for some interesting shots. This was one of the first trailcam systems I ever saw and sold for more than $400 with the camera.

    Blessings........Pastorjim

    That thing reminds me of my first trail cam, it was called Deer Cam, made by Non Typical. Brings back memories. This was my very first trail cam pic that I got from it. Those early cams were a PITA in every aspect!

    I had two like that. They didnt even have anything covering the camera. Didnt take much time to get wet and short out. Big old 6v battery went in them. That was back in the day when trail timers were a big thing. I had 8 trail timers. They used thread across a path to break a circut on a little timer. You could plug the circuit back and see the time the thread was tripped.
