Developed by nature photographers
The Buteo Mark II was developed by nature and wildlife photographers: Extensively used, tested and adjusted where necessary. The Buteo Mark II is thé single-person, waterproof pop up hide that we currently offer in no less than 6 camouflage patterns.
The improved spring steel construction means that this photohide can be set up and folded again and again without any problem. As soon as you take the hide out of its cover, it will automatically come into shape. Ready for use!
If you are often out in the field, you will soon realize that birds and mammals are very shy of people.
Camouflaging yourself and your gear with a photographic hide is the best solution for successful wildlife photography, the basic idea is that the animals no longer see or recognize us as humans, and therefore do not feel threatened. With the Buteo Mark II bird and wildlife photography hide, you are quickly and perfectly camouflaged and you will photograph more effectively.
Easy, quick and mobile
The advantage of having your own portable hide is that you can take it with you anytime, anywhere and deploy it quickly when an opportunity arises.
The Buteo Mark II is a lightweight and compact bird photography hide, which is also waterproof in normal conditions, easy to take with you when you are out and about in your local area, going further afield or even travelling by plane.
Prepare and pitch
It is fun and useful to visit a nature area and prepare well so you can start nature photography with your single person photohide in a very focused way. But even an occasional encounter can turn into a great photo session because you can quickly put up this hide.
If possible, place the photohide against or under existing vegetation so that everything becomes one entity, preferably the day or evening beforehand so that birds and mammals get used to it. The tent can be secured with the pegs and guy ropes provided, although this will not often be necessary.
The Buteo Mark II also has the option of attaching additional camouflage such as branches, leaves, reeds etcetera. These extras can be attached using the strings. If you do this properly, your hide will blend in even more with the area and that is exactly what it is meant to do! Another possibility is to use an extra camouflage net, please feel free to check our page camouflage nets.
Make sure you still have a good view with your camera on all sides and levels you have in mind.
The tent fabric itself is made of a strong material (polyester 150D) that will last for a long period. The waterproof pop up hide is perfect for use for short periods (up to several months). In case the hide is exposed in full sunlight for a longer period of time, the colour/camoprint may fade somewhat. During rain/showers you still keep dry because of the Hydrostatic Head of 2.500 mm. But keep in mind that the weather resistance can decrease a bit if it is left outside for months or even longer.
For a little more comfort, to keep your bag dry on the ground and to keep ticks and other unwanted guests away, you can use a ground sheet in your tent.
Imagine yourself waiting in your hide, perfectly still, well prepared and ready for action! Suddenly a deer, wild boar, or a woodpecker shows up just the way you planned. It is very exciting when you succeed as your target species shows up in front of you. For wildlife and nature photographers nothing beats the feeling of taking nice shots of birds and wildlife, making it worth waiting. At that moment it is nice to rely on your gear and equipment!
Taking photographs from the hide
The door has a high quality zipper, stays nicely on the side and is additionally camouflaged equipped with an insect screen in the same camouflage print. So the photohide with the door (slightly) open is still perfectly camouflaged.
Once inside the tent, you will see that it is very dark because of the black coating on the inside. The viewing windows with an insect net give you just enough visibility on all sides to see your surroundings. The hide has enough space for your chair on which you sit, your tripod with camera/lens and a photo backpack or bag. On 2 sides there are extra storage pockets where you can store some small stuff.
If you go out for a long time, this is the ideal bird and wildlife photography hide. With all the options and possibilities you will have a good time.
At the front you have the choice to shoot at eye level or at a low level position. Optional it is possible to mount an extra snoot or lens cover to these photo windows, which also camouflages your lens and protects it against possible rain and dust. An additional benefit is that your hands are invisible when you handle your gear. Right and left are also photo windows at eye level (these are slightly bigger so not suitable for a snoot).
So, if you're looking for the perfect single person, waterproof pop up hide that's easy to carry, sets up in seconds and always in the right camouflage print, the Buteo Mark II is the best option for you.
