Bought some Neos Smart cameras, which are excellent (and cheap - only £20). Put on in my workshop and it picked up this:


It's probably a moth but not certain. What do you think?

It was 6.20pm so fairly light. Does look like a paper plane but there was nobody in there who could have thrown it

I think it's a bat.. bat flight can be very erraatic. Don't have a computer to fiddle around stopping the video. But I'd say bat maybe a tiny pipistrelle. They are waking up this time of year.

I think it is one of Spandit's New Years Resolutions trapped, unable to escape from his workshop..Could be the " I must build a rack for those"....or " I will sort out what's under that bench" one ..... ....

I am pretty sure, that it is a Chinese mini drone.

In the last couple of years we had more and more in Germany observing garages, sheds and artisan working spaces, to spy out our ingenious working systems.

They even observed simple house wives to get out how to cook well tasting meals!

I think, because they are unable to copy us, they now started to observe British sheds and kitchens because they probably think, that your technical level would be lower.

Should they start next time to have bacon and eggs for breakfast and fish and chips for dinner, you will know why!

I had to laugh at this, if they were excellent surely you could make out what it seen................lol

I think it is the ghost of a long lost brush.

If it would be a ghost of a long lost brush, and I thought it in the first moment too, the video wouldn't bee so bad.

But as I wrote: It's well visible a Chinese mini drone!
Nothing wrong with the camera!

Its very white, do you think it was scared of something?
was there a light on the camera, and could the light have attracted it to the camera?

The camera has an IR illuminator for night vision, so will light up stuff that goes in front of it. For £20 (neos.co.uk) I think they're great value
