Our older video setup

To illustrate the difference between our new camera set-up and our old one, here are some pictures from this summer.

Here, Suzanne & Shipra start the process up by placing females into the test chambers...
Each chamber is individually labelled, and consists of 4 small sub-chambers that can be loaded with food and males, and a larger chamber in which a female is free to sample these males (who are kept behind a fine  mesh)

 The chambers were mounted on a cork-board
 And filmed on with a camera set to take time-lapse videos....
