I think they are testing a new webcam: https://www.sxmislandcam.com/

They have more zoom and better picture quality. The next improvement could be night vision. This cam can focus on the rocks around the island and followed the racing boats 360 degrees. John

It looks to be about the same to me, but I am just looking at it now. Lots of rich men's toys sitting out there in Simpson Bay!

Looks the same to me too with the same web site it's always been on.

While I do not look at the webcams all that often, when I did look at this after you posted it I thought it moved around a lot more and was zooming more than I have seen in the past.

Looks same to me too. It depends when you look at it. It scans all the way to P'Burg on one side then to Sandy Ground on the other. Some days it stops over Simpson Bay and zooms in to see boats.

I like looking at it at night with all the runway lights lit and surrounding area lights that look like stars sparkling.

I watch all 3 every day. Wish the Maho cam followed landings and takeoffs like before. Makes us feel like we are always there. So fun to watch live.

KLM backing up right now, preparing to take off. Man, I miss that 747!!

edit... They took off. I was hoping they would zoom in, but no such luck.

I think it all depends on who is manning the cam stick.

I saw that KLM take off. To bad they didn't follow it. I too miss the 747's, but i do have some sweet video of it landing right over my head!

Zoomed in on the Sailing Yacht A. Take a look, it is quite a boat.
