Phobias III - Cameraphobia
How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
This is the third cache in the series of phobia caches by Liimes. Suffering from the fear of cameras or having your picture taken might make it impossible for you to even try this cache, but the cache definitely offers a challenge for anyone. The most important thing in this series is to conquer your fears.
This cache is actually a webcam that isn't as easy to log as you might think. The camera is attached to a light pole at a pedestrian bridge near Kalevalantie in Tapiola, Espoo. The camera has a 10 minute interval, so you have to be on the location exactly the right time.
There are two ways to log this cache:
NOTE: You mustn't be more than 10 meters away from the camera, e.g. a picture where you stand on a bus stop 100 meters away doesn't count as a find. Also the camera has no ability to focus on target, so you or your GPSr must be at least 1 meter away from the lens.
- Show your GPSr to the camera when it takes a picture. This doesn't necessarily require any special equipment.
- Climb on top of the Northern railing on the bridge so that you and your GPSr will be on the picture. If you cannot reach high enough, the ladder might be helpful.
