Advice on camera please (1 Viewer)


Well-known member

I hope I've posted this in the right place. Please guide me if I haven't.

I've left this really late and I'm panicking now. I want to buy my wife a camera for watching birds in our garden. I would want the IQ to be good in colour for live watching wirelessly on her laptop or phone and the ability to take pictures in colour at reasonable resolution. Video recording segments in colour would also be required.

I want it to be wireless so I don't have to wire it to the laptop and I want it to be waterproof.

I would like it to be moveable and I don't want one that is but into a nest box so we'd only use it for one month a year.

Night vision would be a real bonus for badgers hedgehogs etc

Is there any recommendations from you folks. My budget is up to £500 and we are in the UK so it needs to be available easily here and suitable for our variable light and weather conditions.

thank you so much
