What decibel level activates it?
Were there images from before the start of the gif or was that the actual moment it was loud enough to activate?
The camera started firing on the first frame you see. the sounds trigger has a threshold but it is simply measured in increments from low to high sensitivity. The camera often takes a second or so to wake up.

Nice work. How long were your exposures? I used to be into shooting lightening when I first got into photography. It was a long time ago, though, and I didn't have access to all the technology that exists today. I would just sit there manually popping 30 second exposures into the black night hoping to catch a bolt. Over the course of several months I probably took thousands of pictures but ended up with less than half a dozen decent shots.
Yup it was 30 second exposures. This many bolts in roughly 20 mins maybe 6 or 7 frames
Guess I'm headed to the Port tonight for some drinks at Fishlips so I can check it out.
(For any non-locals, yes there's a handful of nice restaurants at the Port right across from where they dock OCISLY. I highly recommend it for anyone visiting the Cape Canaveral area)
Sounds like a good time :D enjoy
Did the equipment take damage from the heat/shock wave/vibrations? I guess that distance would be lethal to a person.
The distance is probably lethal to a person, however the cameras are fine at SLC-40. The only time I've seen cameras lost is during Atlas V launches at SLC-41. ULA lets us inside the fence of that pad and awfully close to the flame trench.
Falcon 9 and a Dragon resupply spacecraft lifted off from Space Launch Complex 40 on Cape Canaveral Air Force Station yesterday afternoon during a 4:30pm EDT instantaneous launch window. Dragon will be delivering cargo, food, science experiments, and other supplies to the crew aboard the International Space Station. A few isolated thunderstorms developed to the west of Cape Canaveral shortly before the launch window, making for interesting final moments before launch. This image was taken from a sound-triggered 'remote' camera that was placed several hundred feet away from the launch pad. The clouds made for an interesting and moody background.
Equipment and settings: Nikon D3200 and 18-55mm VRII @20mm, ISO-100, f/6.3, 1/4000th
I take and upload an original photo to my Instagram every single day as part of a 365-day photo challenge.
I receive press accreditation and take photos on behalf of a local news organization called Space Coast Times.

I remember when I was a young kid playing in the backyard when all of a sudden you feel the shake and then really loud deep engines and I looked up and saw this plane, it was flying really slow over the Monterey area and to this day I've never seen it again, that was like 11 years ago I didn't know It was rare, there's always like military vehicles going around the skies in this area for some reason
Rare to be brought out specifically for the public to see! but I've been reading lots of stories from people who see them around where they live!
I was at RIAT 2012, where they had a B2 spirit there. it was on display, but very far back from the fence, and had 3 armed guards around it at all time. weren't even allowed to lean on the barrier.
opposite then, and about 100M down the runway was a polish Mig-29, an aircraft from the same era. the pilot was busy taking the cowling off the front of the engine so a photographer could get a picture of what was under there. it was such a beautiful contrast
That's crazy haha!
