If you don't have quicktime installed it will get a 500 error, you have to go your main web page then click on Live Weather Cam and then it will prompt you to install Quicktime. You may want to put a link to the quicktime download page for those having trouble.

Nice view of Morro Rock. Would be cool if you can get a closer in look. What I thought would work, and may be interesting is something that people with Flip cameras do that want more wide angle or telephoto. You get a kit for camcorders for telephoto or wide angle add on lens. They come with a set of ring adapters and find the one that fits best in front of the camera and glue it on. then you can screw on the telephoto or wide angle lens of your choice. There's several youtibe videos on how to do this, here's one - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-nQUog2TpY4

buellwinkle now that would be sweet! I've looked at kits for both 72 and 55mm, but don't see where they come with a set of ring adapters (to choose from). Heck just a 2x zoom would do me great!

would be perfect for the ocean view across the freeway I can barely get to now as well.

I'm not sure this would work for zoom as it does for the wide angle. For zoom the distance between the cam lens and add on lens would have to be perfect to achieve focus. Might be difficult. Like looking through a magnifying glass. You have to have it exactly in the right spot for focus etc...

Don't know, I would assume they have a way to focus them, but the Flip is in the same boat with a glued on lens.

Talked to a photog expert in the family and said it would work with the 2x lens, just be sure to use a glass lens and not plastic. Will have items needed next week and will post my results here. Should be interesting...

Just a quick observation, must be windy in Morro Bay because the camera is moving. Maybe guy wires on the pole may help stabilize it.

Actually what that is lol.......... my deck/porch is semi floating. The cam and pole is attached to it. After our 6.0 earthquake a few years ago the deck was built somewhat free standing so it moves a bit when people walk on it. the wind hasn't bothered the cam at all. What you saw was the wife walk out onto the deck/porch heading outside. It's rare, but you'll only see that if someone's walking out there and heading down the steps. Very Happy Like I said though the wind hasn't budged the cam at all. My brother first saw that and called right away asking if we had another earthquake? Laughing Said nah, just momma heading outside... Laughing

Another little tid bit on the cam... I had a 180 degree misunderstanding on the back lighting thing. I disabled it and the image is much, much better. It was whiting out the sky and overriding some of my settings. Now if the 2x lens trick works, should be pretty nice.

I have to wonder here........ the greenish light that lights up around the backside of the M1011 loens... is that just a power on indicator light?? I'm wondering what effect that might have on the tunnel of the 2x telephoto lens? Doesn't seem to do anything at night in the housing such as reflect off housing glass etc. Hopefully that light is just a power on light (indicator) and won't channel the light towards the lens since the lens will be encased in the adapter ring followed by the 2x lens itself?

Neighbor came over with a flat 2x lens (looks like the adapter ring, but with glass and held it up in front of housing glass ( camera lens is right near the housing glass0 and it worked great so hoping the larger telephoto does as well. I know the difference as one the round flat one is one lens where the larger telephoto has multiple lenses in it. I also hope the "channel" on the telephoto doesn't obstruct the viewing angle ie; as in the degree of the field of vision?

Good question, that light is optional and I have mine set to off. Go to Setup, System Options, LED and select OFF.

I'll post more later, BUT 2X zoom lens is attached to the M1011 and it works! Cam was moved from porch/deck due to movement and now attached to a power pole (ours). Not a bad deal for a $25 project (for the zoom) and a little time. I'll do a quick project post later, but indeed you can ZOOM with an Axis M-1011. Cool

When you double your field of vision though it also doubles the sensitivity of the cam of any movement. . One drawback if you really want to call it that by using the 2x zoom you obviously bring everything in closer and it narrows your field of vision. Morro Rock has definitely grown. Laughing
