New Bridge Cam Update! 6/14/2021

Update: 6/14/2021

The installation of the new Bridg Cam is complete.  I will be doing some more tweaking with it this week, but, it is fully operational as of today.

Thank you to all who donated and for those who support this channel on an everyday basis.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Update: 6/7/2021

After concerns of limited camera operation in cold weather, I will be switching the Bridge cam upgrade to the same type of camera that is used for the Canal Cam, which is very reliable and of high quality. 

The image quality and compatibility will be better than the present Bridge Cam. This should be a fine upgrade, however, the pan/zoom capability which I had hoped for will not be available.

Thanks for your patience!

Den

Update: 6/4/2021

I have received the new camera intended to replace the Bridge Cam.  During setup and testing this week, I discovered that the additional device used to inject audio and power the camera is not powerful enough to operate the camera in cold weather. I will be having further discussions with the manufacturer next week to see if there are any workarounds for this issue.  

While this camera would work great in this setting, I do not want to install it at the bridge locations if sound cannot be included. 

Sorry for the delay and I will keep you posted when there are further developments.

Thanks,

Den

After two devastating Lake Superior storms several years back, the Duluth Lakewalk was heavily damaged. Two years and 22 million dollars later, the newly fortified Lakewalk is back and better than ever. You can see the enormous amount of work that went into the rebuild with this birds-eye view. Nice job to all those involved!

Lake Superior sunrises are incredible and some more than others, such as this morning.   Gulls, waves, boats, and lighthouses -- a scene to behold.
Sometimes God crafts a gift in the design of a sunrise -- Enjoy it.
