Photos versus data



  • Elizabeth Swoope

    It’s easy to set a number of photos if the camera only transmits thumbnails of a certain size because everything that is transmitted is about the same size. However, with our cameras, you can have normal (640 * 480) or large (1280 * 960) thumbnails. You can also request the full-resolution photo (3, 5, or 8 MP, each of which is a different amount of data) and videos (two sizes and two lengths for each size).

    If you are going to run the camera for at least 3 months at a time, you will get more data (1G rather than 750 MB) for the same money if you choose the 3 month plan rather than the 1 month plan.

    Here’s a chart that shows about how much data is used by each transmitted item.
