I have seven of the 2009 model Bushnell Trophy Trail Cameras. These were purchased this past spring of 2010. Model and manufacture date is on the back of the package on the lower right hand area. I had these cameras all set up for video until recently when I changed two of them to picture for a trial. The pictures turned out good, but I'll be switching back to video because it adds life with animal movement etc. I have video set for 30 second with a 10 second delay. Battery life is excellent. Bushnell recommends Lithium batteries for colder weather. These are available in various powers (4x, 8X, Ultimate and rechargeable). I am using Pure Energy rechargeables as these are 1.55 volt fully charged right out of the package. These batteries and multicharger are available at most WalMart stores. Cameras are small. Emailing Bushnell a couple of times for information, I have had excellent customer service. All Bushnell cameras have a two year warranty from the manufacture. The 2009 model is limited to a 2GB SD card. SD cards must be formatted in the camera. Bushnell recommends using SanDisk SD card. I am using SanDisk, Kodak and Verbatim with good success. The buckle on the tie strap is small and weak. Just use care especially in colder weather, not to over tighten as it could break. To avoid any over exposure or white outs, do not face any trail camera into the rising or setting sun. My cameras have the viewer which for the extra price, I wouldn't recommend, just swap out your SD card and view on your computer. The same goes for the Bone Collector: your paying extra bucks for the decorated case. Buy some camo paint, use leaves, sticks etc., spray over these then remove. There is your fancy pattern, designed by you for a lot less money. I used camo tape one time for another hunting project but found it too glossy. Good luck on your choice.
