This build was originally from the Panny ZR1 which had the lens problem, then I swapped cameras with a FS15 and all was great till the bear decided he like the camera better and wanted a taste of it and broke the glass for the slave. Bill replaced the glass and was good to go . I set camera back out and went to check 2 weeks later and inside the case was under water(grrrrrr). Brought back let dry now mind you when I said it was under water IT WAS FLOODED INSIDE THE CASE. Let dry camera took the longest but worked like a champ after it dried, checked the boards after drying ,scrubbed with denatured alcohol and seemed to be fine. Tested the camera and all worked great, put it back in the field, Bill checked 2 weeks later and FLOODED INSIDE AGAIN !!! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr okay so once again the camera survived BUT the GameWatcher and Slave Controller Board DID NOT !!!!! Bill talked with Ralph and Ralph came to the conclusion that the bear in fact did more damage to the case than the eye can see. Bill rebuilt this build in a new case with the (twice flooded FS15) and new boards and hallelujah Bill checked after a heavy rain the past few days and bone dry inside !!! And yes it did past the dunk test before he put it out. The cam was set on the edge of our property where we do all tests. And yes that is a mineral lick Bill put there in the summer... So all in all cam is good to go, which made me happy when I heard the news when I got home from work haha. No I will camo it and find a home for it in the woods where it belongs. Every now and then we tend to get a cam from (H**). Well this certainly has been one of them. Thank you Ralph(Hun) for your patience and guidance through this Rebuild from H**
Love Rena
