Day 6 plot watcher

Postby Nwest » Sun Feb 13, 2011 5:21 pm

Does anyone have any experience with the Day 6 Outdoors PlotWatcher?  I just returned the Bushnell Trophy Cam that I bought a few weeks ago, and now I have a bunch of store credit that I need to use up.  These look like they could be pretty useful in certain situations.

the plot watcher can be a great tool. I set mine to take pics every 10 seconds to save on the battery life, Witch is about
8 days set a 10 seconds.
The big advantage is that you can see movement a long ways
from the camera. Cant tell much after about 80 yards, Just that
its a deer, But you can track there movement.
What I dint like about the plot watcher, Is that it takes a long
time to check the pictures/video. About 15 min nits to check a
day of pics.  It has a feature where the downloaded program
will check the pics for movement and then stop when there is movement. The problem with this is that its to sensitive. A
leaf or stick blowing around, Or even shadows will stop the
process.
You can go to day 6 outdoors and watch Pic/video of the cam
in action.
This is a daytime only camera.  jake

I have not purchase one yet but I will later this year. The company is coming out with a new model that should be available in the next several months. It's be upgraded from the original model giving better battery life, pictures are stored on an SD card not a memory stick...those are some of the changes that I remember.
