I have used almost every camera that has come on the market in the last 5 years with the exception of some of the higher priced cams. The CuddieBack being the most expensive cam I have purchased and one of the biggest let downs I have had (I'm not talking about the new capture models either). I have had some sort of problem out of almost every cam I have ever had because let's face it, ANY electronics and deviations of the different elements of weather do not work well together. Regardless of what you do humidity, heat, rain, cold are going to generate a certain amount of condensation within the unit itself. Most cameras, when they act up, cam be fixed by taking them home and putting them in a warn dry place for awhile or by taking them apart and spraying them with an electronic cleaner.
I have had the Bushnell Trophy Cams now sense they were introduced last year. I bought 2 of them to start out because I have had Bushnell cams in the past that didn't perform well at all. Needless to say, these little cams blew my mind! The only thing I didn't like was that they would only take a 2GB SD card which they fixed this year. I had these cams out for a full year and only changed the batteries once and that was because I just couldn't believe the other batteries had lasted as long as the did. These batteries were the standard Duracell AA's. Let's face it, most of us aren't taking these pics to post in a magazine. We just need it to be clear enough to get a good look at what we have in our hunting area, but I have had some pictures of turkeys, bobcats, coyotes and deer that I would put in any magazine from these cameras. I have had a few pics where the whole pic was white (usually because my set up was wrong facing into the sun), some that were red and some that were just too dark, but there was usually a good reason for this. It was usually an easy fix by replacing the batteries or placing the cam on my dash for awhile in the open position. Either way, these cams have been the best I have used and I bought 5 more of the new units several months ago. They have worked just as well, if not better than the others I already have. As with anything these days, there are bad apples in every bunch but I haven't found one in this bunch yet!
Hunt as though your life depended on it, because one day it just might!
