Interactive live video camera
In addition to capturing still images for this page, our camera operates as a live video camera, allowing visitors to the site to select from a list of 20 preset views and watch while the camera moves to that view.
No queue exists on the camera, so please be patient and courteous to others.
At one minute past the half hour, the camera automatically collects several views for the fixed webcam page. Please refrain from controlling the camera at these times.
Tekapo Tourism Ltd thanks Canterbury University's Mt John in allowing the camera to be sited close to one of their buildings.

It is only through the support of our sponsors, advertisers and volunteers that Tekapo Tourism has been able to install and operate this web camera.
The camera is capable of being watched live and be directed, by visitors to the website, to one of 20 views of interest available to the camera. Follow the link above to 'take control of the camera'.
