We sometimes consider remotely placed automated cameras (trail cameras) to be a recent invention, yet remotely triggered cameras have been used since the early 1900s when trip wires and fl ash bulbs were used to capture images of wildlife. By the early 1980s, technology had advanced to include infrared beam triggers and 35mm film. Today remote images are captured with high resolution digital cameras with rapid trigger speeds, wireless image transfer, video capability, and infrared illumination. With this advancement in technology, concurrent with decreasing cost, the use and popularity of trail cameras dramatically increased among the public and wildlife conservation agencies.
