Ltl Acorn 5210A Scrambled Menu Corrected by Firmware Upgrade

5210A Menu Page 1
I recently dealt with two 5210A cameras which had a menu problem as illustrated by the images in this post.

If you have a similar problem go to the manufacturers website, download the latest firmware for your model and do a firmware upgrade; which should correct the problem.

This is the link to the download page:

Go to my download page for information about how to discover your camera's firmware version and how to do a firmware upgrade.

Iain MacDiarmid's landscape photographs of the Scottish Highlands

Loch Affric - copyright Iain MacDiarmid

I recently had the pleasure of meeting local photographer Iain MacDiarmid who specialises in landscapes around the Scottish Highlands.

In this post are some of Iain's images from the local area, which he has very kindly given me permission to use to illustrate other pages on this website in the future. I admire his work very much and look forward to seeing how his techniques develop over time.

I hope you enjoy viewing his work and at the bottom of this post you'll find a link to his website where you can browse his whole collection.

This web site is about the wildlife, particularly the mammals, of the Glen Affric National Nature Reserve area in the north west Highlands of Scotland, UK; and the equipment I use to search for them, which is chiefly trail cameras.

I provide a technical support and parts service for the Ltl Acorn range of cameras and the income from this provides for the upkeep of this site and the purchase of cameras for my own surveying.

I hope you find the site useful and informative; and please contact me if you have any questions that I haven't already covered.
