Hillside Cam Replacement/Upgrade Project

Update: 6/4/2018 -- 20:00   SUCCESS!  We have met the goal and the new camera is on order.

Thanks so much to generous folks who donated to this and past fundraisers.
I will keep you posted on the progress of this project as it develops.

Kickoff 06/04/2018 - 08:00
The Hillside Cam is nearing its useful life.  With this project, we will replace the Hillside cam with a panorama cam that will rotate to pan from downtown to West Duluth.
The panorama cams cost more than the standard but give more options. 
My hope is to have this cam installed by the July 4th fireworks.

Thank You!



  1. These one day fund raisers make it difficult for everyone to give==the goal gets met so quickly. What a great turnout. Really looking forward to the rotating hillside cam. Thank you to everyone who's making it possible.

  2. Hi Anonymous: I know if Dennis receives additional donations he saves them for repairs and/or future cameras. I'm sure they are welcome anytime, as this is ongoing project ;) His address is on the camera projects page, if your so inclined. Have a great day!

  3. Will this replace the Bayfront and Harbor cams? You are doing your best to cure my hometown home-sickness, thanks Dennis!

    1. I'm not sure yet -- if it did, we could save $700/yr. in streaming costs.
