How Does Your Garden Grow? (WINGSCAPES review)


I remember my Grandmother's garden years ago. She had the most beautiful collection of day lilies and knew which was which. I loved visiting hers and now I get to visit my own mom's collection in her yard as she made her garden of the same lilies my grandma had. 

Every year, when the flowers bloom, I like to admire them and sometimes even take photos. They're so beautiful. But I always hoped to be able to gather a number of photos of the garden's blooms from the time they grow to the last day they stand facing the sun. I love to see something like this featured in a documentary.

One item sold on the WINGSCAPES website is a PlantCam. With this product, I can set up a camera to take a day's or a season's worth of garden photos. How exciting!

 Inside the box, I found everything I need to set this up wherever I see fit. There are items to help mount the camera onto something stationary. There are even bungee cords included should I need them.

When the weatherproof cover is opened, the camera and it's features are found. Here, the distance can be set for the camera itself in relation to what is being photographed. Also, the timing intervals of shots can be set from every 30 seconds to every day.

On the side, there is the battery door, a USB Out connection, a TV Out connection, and a place to insert a SD memory card should I wish to expand the memory of the camera for more photos.

For review's sake, I set up this camera in my home. To be fair, the distance wasn't accurate and the lighting was very poor. I just wanted to see how easy it was to set the camera and how it all worked. I chose to set it to take a picture every 30 seconds. {By the way, the basic set-up was very easy and quick.}

So here is what the pictures look like after uploading them to my computer. {I selected a few from the many I took because most of them were the same as each other.}

As I said, the lighting was horrible and the distance wasn't set correctly. I also neglected to correct the date and time while setting the camera up. However, I do think it's helpful to have the information on the bottom of the images. If I were to use this for flowers, the photos may all look the same at one point or another in the time line and the details on the images themselves could help me with my project.

If you have a garden enthusiast on your shopping list, please run over to WINGSCAPES and check out the PlantCam {Sold for a suggested retail value of $70}. There are also BirdCams and accessories for the perfect, camera set-up.
