Cuddeback Capture

Postby gunther89 » Fri Dec 05, 2008 8:22 am

I was wondering if anyone has the Cuddeback Capture and what you think of it.  I want to upgrade to something better like a Cuddeback from my Wildview.  Would appreciate anyone who has one and if it has good trigger speed, quality pictures, and long battery life.

I have a moultrie, not the expensive kind either....and I love it.
The pictures are clear and batteries last 2 months.  I also have a solar panel
which keeps your battery inside the camera for ever.  My batteries has been in
my camera since late April.  I just changed them 3 weeks ago.  here is a few pics.

Nice pics.  Looks like the deer in the 3rd picture is awful thin.....borderline sickly.

I use a Moultrie as well...I'm very happy with it but thinking of upgrading to one that has an infrared, so not to use a flash at night.  The jury is still out on whether or not deer are spooked by the flash, and I'm sure it's on a deer to deer basis, but I would rather not mess with it.  But yes, the Moultrie does an excellent job!

I also have a i camera by Bushnell....no flash...infrarated .  Now don't get me wrong its not the expensive one. But if the deer is slightly to the right or the left, the picture is not clear.  It seems like the animal has to be dead centre.   Like I said...My camera is about the cheapest.  I'm not sure about the more expensive and better quality.  I am not afraid to use my flash on any of my camera.  I have over 1000 pictures at night with all kind of bucks.   Doesn't seem to be bothering them. 
Maybe they like it.   LOL.

We traded in a 4 year old cuddeback for a capture.  The new onme is much easier to use and produces better pictures.  We were frustrated with it when we took the memory chip and tried to view it with a Moultrie that can be hooked up to a TV.  The moultrie said the memory chip was blank when in fact it had 150 pictures.  We eventually figured this out.  The Cudde Back is better in cold weather than the Moultrie.  The batteries lasted longer.  I think its a very good camera.

I bought a cuddeback capture this weekend. Very easy to use, I like it. I've bought 3 moultries since October and 2 of them went bad. I'm not badmouthing Moultries, I have a friend that uses them and loves them. I just thought I'd try something different. The Capture will only take 1 pic at a time and no video like the moultries I had but quite a bit easier to set up and program. I put it out yesterday so I haven't retrieved any pics yet......
We can't continue to do the same things over and over and expect different results

Thanks everyone sounds like I'll either get a capture or a moultrie.  Hope to get one on sale after Christmas.
