back before security cameras were as prevalent as they are today I was forced to use a game camera to capture evidence of nefarious things happening on my property. one of the cameras I was using had an option that it could snap a picture ( or burst of 3 with a 2 second gap between pictures) or take a small video clip. there was also an option to combine the options so it would take a burst picture set and then record the video. its not a NEEDED option but it would be cool to be able to get just a picture of an incident at my option. or even maybe combine the video and capture option.
currently my region of Michigan is starting to get its first snow. I took a couple of pictures about 4 hours apart today for comparison and realized the possible uses of having the camera do automatic pictures as opposed to manual pictures or just video.
