Please note, your 1 year warranty is always with your retailer.  For instance, if you bought directly from Amazon then your warranty is with them.  However, here at Pakatak Ltd, we carry Ltl Acorn spare parts and are always happy to test your camera for you if you think it has developed a fault.

 


 HINTS, TIPS, Do’s & Don’ts!

.

Batteries: 

We strongly recommend using only Uniross or Energiser rechargeable batteries.  Uniross are the brand we use here for testing etc. We have heard reports of other brands such as Duracell causing problems.  One common problem with weaker batteries is that your camera will only record very short video clips (even when set to record for 30 seconds for instance).  This is because the camera senses low power and so saves & shuts down the recording, it then does the same thing when next triggered.

IMPORTANT – Do not leave batteries inside the camera if you are not using it, this could result in acid leak and ruin the camera – this is not covered under warranty!

.

SD Card:

Always use genuine branded SD cards, there have been in the past many fake cards on the market (especially being sold on Ebay etc).  Also, always format your SD card using the “format” option in the camera menu, do not format your SD card in your PC for use with the Acorn cameras.

.

Manual Reset: 

If you think your camera has developed a fault, try a system reset as below:

Remove all batteries & SD Card, bring the camera inside for 24hrs then test again.

 .

Infrared:

The infrared beam is powerful so don’t position the camera too close to any solid objects as your night shots could suffer “white out” issues.

.

Infrared Cut Filter (situated in front of the lens):

When moving the camera in your hand you may notice the IR cut filter moving in front of the lens, this is perfectly normal.  When the camera is in operation, it will decide if the cut filter is needed automatically depending upon light levels.

New Ltl Acorn 6310 Wildlife Trail Camera Trap Imminent

As the largest UK distributor for the Ltl Acorn range of wildlife cameras and accessories we are pleased to announce that there is a new model due for release soon.

The 6310 series is expected to have a slightly different build plus 1 or 2 other new features – watch this blog and the Pakatak website for more details.

Increased Ltl Acorn Wildlife Camera Range in the UK

As the UKs largest distributor of the Ltl Acorn range of wildlife trail camera traps and accessories, we are now pleased to announce that we are stocking a much larger range of the Ltl Acorn equipment.

At Pakatak, we have been stocking the popular 5210A and 6210MC Ltl Acorn models for many years but are now pleased to report that we have the new 5310 series as well as the complete range of cellular models (capable of sending instant photos to your mobile phone or email address).

A range of accessories including the security boxes for the 5210 and 6210 series’ are available as is the Ltl Acorn Solar Panel for increased running time for your camera trap.

The new 5310 series features increased night vision capabilities.  The 5310s have a  larger infrared array of 44 leds whereas the 6210 and 5210 series cameras have 24 leds).  There are 4 models in the 5310 series, these are:

5310A – standard version

5310WA – wide angle lens version

5310MG – cellular version

5310wMG – cellular version with the wide angle lens

As is usual with the Ltl Acorn cameras, all models can be bought with either the standard 850nm (nanometer) infrared which gives off the feint red glow or the covert 940nm infraded which has no glow.  The 850nm infrared will “reach” further but the 940nm can often be better for security purposes or human surveillance etc as it’s more covert and less likely to be spotted.

Pakatak are also now stocking the cellular models from the 5210 and 6210 series, these are product coded as the 5210MG and the 6210MG.

All of the Ltl Acorn cameras are fantastic for wildlife surveillance or covert remote surveillance where the running of power and video cables is not possible.  The trail cameras can be set to take photos or record video in light or dark conditions and are powered by AA batteries – field time of months is possible dependent upon how “busy” the camera location is.

GPS Tracking of London to Paris Charity Bike Ride

Gary Izard left in the early hours of this morning on his charity ride from London to Paris.  This cycle ride is 300 miles and is to be completed in 4 days.  Gary is raising money for Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and is carrying a GPS tracker from Pakatak Ltd.

Anybody that wants to track Gary across to Paris over the next 4 days can do so by going to www.mytrackingpanel.com/gps and entering the password “londonparis” (lower case, no spaces).

You can sponsor this great cause by going to Gary’s charity page at www.doitforcharity.com/gizard

Pakatak Ltd would like to wish Gary all the best and we’ll certainly be tracking him across to France, he;s currently travelling at around 16MPH and is going through Westerham in Kent on the way east to Dover!

Good luck Gary!

Mi-Witness In Car Camera System

Pakatak Ltd are very pleased to be retailing the Mi-Witness In Car Camera System.

The Mi-Witness was voted “Best Buy” in the Sunday Times Dash Cameras section and is an approved Renault Accessory, so it’s certainly not not short of accolades and recommendations!

The Mi-Witness can save you money on your vehicle insurance and acts as a superb accident witness camera, helping to prove or disprove blame should an incident occur on the road.

Unlike many other in car camera systems the Mi-Witness is completely legal and will not interfere with your DAB radio or GPS device reception – something of a problem with many in car cameras on the market at the moment.

Charity Event GPS Tracking

Pakatak Ltd have been very proud to have our GPS trackers used for monitoring charity walks, runs and bike rides.

So far in 2014 we have supplied a couple of our Prime Lite GPS Trackers to Jonjo Heuerman for his “Boot it for Bobby” , 50 miles in 5 days football dribble.  Fans, supporters, friends and family were able to login to our live tracking panel and watch Jonjo’s progress.

Jonjo raised a fantastic £18,000 for the Bobby Moore Fund – he’s just 11 years old by the way!

Later this summer (2014) we will be supplying Gary Izard with the same tracker, the Prime Lite, as he takes part in the London to Paris charity bike ride.  Again, anyone that wants to follow Gary’s progress will simply be able to login and watch his progress across to France.  Gary will be raising funds for EDS – a rare condition (Ehlers-Danlos) in need of much research funding.
