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!

Thanks You! Thank You! - Camera Fundraiser

A great big THANK YOU to all of you who donated to the camera streaming fundraiser.

I will be using this funds to pay the fees as they come through in the next few weeks.

We made our goal in two days--- WOW!

I will continue to do my best to keep our cameras operational.

Harborcam Replacement Funding --- Success!!! Thank you, Thank You

What can I say but thanks.  Three days ago I let this community of duluthharborcam viewers the need to upgrade the Harborcam camera due to age and lack of streaming ability. Over the next three days we raised the $1270 needed.  Just stunning and humbling.

Over the past several years, I realized that these cameras have become windows to the Duluth waterfront for more then just myself.  I get great satisfaction out of helping provide a way to view the waterfront  "live" via internet, that has only been possible to do in the past several years.   When I see comments, or get emails from viewers who will never be able to stand in Canal Park or the Duluth hillside and watch boats, weather, people and wildlife, then I understand that these cameras have become something very important to others, not just myself. Providing this service to others has become more rewarding than I ever could have imagined.

I am a native Duluthian and as a photographer I photograph harbor and lakeshore scenes often, especially Canal Park.  When asked why I keep returning and photographing the same location time and time again, my only reply is that it's different each time, GOD mixes a different element of each day.

I'm sure many of duluthharborcam viewers feel the same way, I don't know if this is an addictions, but if it is, I'm hooked. Hooked on the views, but, most of all hooked on knowing that together, we can make a better day for hundreds of people at a time, as they enjoy the sights and sounds of one of the most beautiful locations on the planet.

I will continue to save the coffee fund money for the next project.

Thanks again,
