Keep the back cap firmly twisted on the camera to stop water from entering the USB port. The ShotKam is made of military-grade aluminum, so it is extremely durable and will endure all hunting environments.

To use your ShotKam while hunting, follow these steps:
1. Select Your Settings
Connect to the ShotKam’s Wi-Fi, open the ShotKam app, then tap the Settings icon. Select the correct gun type, then select the “Flying Birds” target type. Ensure the wake-up sensitivity is on Normal. Save these changes.
2. Once in the Field
Place your ShotKam in Normal Shooting Mode with one click-and-release of the Control Button; one LED will illuminate. Once solid green, the camera will now record video and go into Sleep Mode to conserve battery after 30 seconds of inactivity. When your camera is in Sleep Mode (1 blinking green LED), press the Control Button once to awaken it or bump the gun with your hand. Bump either the stock or forend; this vibration will waken the ShotKam.
NOTE: If the ShotKam is in constant Sleep Mode for 60 minutes, then it will turn off automatically. You must waken the camera (1 solid green LED) once per hour. Either bump the gun, take a shot, or press control button.
3. Take the Shot
Shoot within 30 seconds of wakening the camera, or bump the gun to reset the 30-second timer. You will see a blinking blue LED after the shot is taken to indicate that your shot has been saved. The ShotKam will save 3 seconds pre-shot and 3 seconds post-shot. Any shots taken within 9 seconds of each other will be saved on the same continuous video. Playback speed is 1/3 speed, therefore videos will be 18-30 seconds long.
