Featured Image

Every month or so we like to post an image taken by one of our customers using our equipment. It gives you a great idea of what is possible with Cognisys gear. You can see more customer images in our focus stacking and high speed galleries. If you have an image you would like us to consider for this spot please send it to us at

Scott and the critters from his backyard

This months featured image is a composite of Scott Eggimann and some of the visitors he has photographed using our new Scout camera trapping sensor. A very creative implementation to be certain! I think this is the first time we have had a human in our featured image, we have featured, insects, mammals, birds, reptiles, rocks, water drops, and minerals, but no humans. Thanks for sharing Scott!

You can see more critters from Scott's backyard on his Flickr Page.
