I now have well over 10,000 pictures and my battery indicator is still on full power; however, I've had a few issues since my last posts.
I know that I've been missing pictures...my Dad recently walked by my camera with his beagles and waved to be funny and there was nothing. Also, on several occasions I've seen deer walk right in front of it without taking a picture. Because of this, I switched the sensitivity from normal to high and it proceeded to take a picture EVERY 30 seconds.
This is my first IR camera so this may be normal, but it seems that the flash is more like the beam from a flashlight. If the deer isn't right in the center of it, you have a difficult time seeing what the animal is.
So far, I'm marginally pleased with this camera but I'm having a more difficult time recommending it.
