Bonz.......

Camera C is an old installation not far from the Emu testing site, west of Coober Pedy.

Don't know how much is there now.

Probably not on any maps at all. Maybe only passers by have got co-ords.

Sorry,

I can't find my waypoint, but the position is right on the track anyway.

I hope this link works.

Well, I'll be - the last link worked so here is another one of the actual Camera 'C' base, or what's left of it.

Just another to show how close to the track the camera was located.

Imagine walking twenty paces to the right of the photo, and that is where the camera was mounted.

Hey Squizzy, I have a friend who would like to use your pic of Emu in his collection and one day to be website on EMU. Are they yours ? And would that be OK? With suitable references to yourself as said owner and taker of such good pictures.

Wolfie,

Dick Smith has put out a book with all the GPS co-ordinance that you will ever need.

I can't find my copy at the moment.

Sorry Wolfie,
Can't find any reference to Camera "C" but the end of the Emu Rd shows up on my maps at S29 04 54.0 E132 00 09.7 using WGS 84 as the datum.

Are there any more clues you can give us to work with.

Regards,

Brett

Can't find it Wolfie. The best I can do is Ground Zero Totem 1 28 41 55 S 132 22 19 E and Totem 2 28 42 43 S 132 22 39 E WGS 84

Wolfie,

Camera C site is located at the intersection of the Dingo Claypan road and the Anne Beadell Hwy. You'll find that intersection on the Hema map.

I've travelled this road each of the last 3 years. Can give you a fair bit of info if you're going that way.

Cheers
Phil

This should POP this up to the top of Jimbo's list.

Camera C was a 30 CWT jobbie that looked somewhat like this. It was run my compressed air to help with its operation and could run at exposures up to 1/20,000,000th of a second, of course when it was just lolling around it could run down to such slow speeds as 1/1,000,000th of a second.

It was surrounded by three huts, one housed the compressor, one housed the developing fluid and one housed something else. Anyone who has seen Len Beadells video, for sale on this outstanding site would be able to see what most likely is Camera C.

By the way 30 CWT is a ton and a half. Thats like THREE Wolfies, once you add the weight of all his camera gear.

Anyways, I happen to know a guy who is dragging together heaps of info on Emu.
He's full of such interesting facts about the place, has even landed on the Emu airstrip.
