BeetleCam is Back Teaser

BeetleCam is a remote control buggy with a DSLR camera mounted on top. I created the first BeetleCam in 2009 in order to take close-up, wide-angle photographs of dangerous African animals. You can find out more about the initial project in The Adventures of BeetleCam.

We will soon be releasing the next project instalment in which BeetleCam takes on the lions of the Masai Mara! As you can see from the teaser video, it was an eventful trip! We managed to get some incredible photographs and video footage which we will soon be publishing on Burrard-Lucas.com.

Update: The BeetleCam website is now live: BeetleCam Project

    I wonder if you put an air horn inside the bettle cam (mark 3 of course) if you could sound that off if they ran off with the camera (or got too close).

    Maybe spray the mesh with something bitter (oregano oil?) so the animals don’t bite and carry the buggy away.
