Harborcam Camera Replacement

 

Update 8/30/2022 -- New Harborcam installed 

Update: 8/29/2022 -- testing proved the old harborcam cam completely failed. Installation of the standby camera is progressing.

Update: 8/29/2022 -- Funds are raised and the camera is ordered. I will be installing the standby camera that I have for situations like this since there is a two-month wait to get new cameras.  The standby camera is the same kind as the one I ordered. I should be able to install the camera this week.

8/27/2022After four years of operation, the Harborcam Camera failed and will need to be replaced.


As always, thank you for your generous and faithful support of the harborcams - Dennis O'Hara

Two Harbors Boat Launch Camera Upgrade

 In preparations for the upcoming Tall Ships Festival in Two Harbors the first week of August, it would be great to have a movable, more powerful camera that can view different directions, much like the Lighthouse cam.

I will soon be starting a fundraiser for $3000 to be able to replace the existing camera prior the the festival.

 I believe it would be a great upgrade to existing camera and I should be able to get the work done over the next few weeks.


Thank You!
