Re: new to the trail cameras

hunter2010: Lots of good reports on the M80. I have two of the M100, which is a higher version. There were no M80 available at the dealers when I purchased the M100. Some things to note: Moultrie cameras when set to video take a picture first, then the video. Field of view is narrower in the video than in the picture. Night videos are limited to 10 second. Warranty is one year from the manufacture.
Another camera I am very happy with is the 2009 model Bushnell Trophy Trail camera. I have seven and have not had any problems with any of them. Bushnell offers a two year warranty from the manufacture.
Both of these cameras are small, easy to conceal and use AA batteries which permits one to use the high power (8X) Lithium Ultimate batteries. These batteries test out at 1.79 to 1.83 volt using a digital meter and are excellent for colder weather.
Good luck in your choice.

Re: new to the trail cameras

I have a Bushnell trophy cam and I love it. Just bought a second one. With eight double A batteries lithium ion and last a year. Has both video and picture modes and are very clear 8 mp pics and can change to 3 and 5 mp. Also hold up to 32 fb sd cards for sure I think 64. Infrared pics at night so they don't spook deer and are as big as my hand as are many trail cameras. Best thing you can do is look on cabelas website and read customer reviews on all trail cameras and product details so you get the trail camera that fits you best.

It's not an addiction, its my passion.

Re: new to the trail cameras

wildview was my first and I have NO regrets! Easy to use, great pics, and good on batteries.

Are we at camp yet?
