I've been thinking about a trail cam for a while now. I have a few different places that I think will be neat places to have one sitting for a month at a time. These are on personal private property, so I don't really have to worry about it being stolen, however, I will still probably lock it to the tree it's on. I just got one for Christmas, but it's kind of (actually very) disappointing in it's performance, especially taking video at night. The packaging says the LED lighting is good out to 50 feet at night, but it can barely see me moving in front of it at about 3 feet. A couple of nights ago I had some action on some bait I put out in my backyard, and I got seven, 10 second videos of pure grainy black, of bait set at 15 feet from the camera. We've tried 2 different sets of brand new batteries in it, and also 2 different memory cards, just so we could rule out the most obvious. Results were the same with both set ups, you can't see a single thing. So we've decided that this one goes back to the store for refund, and we have ordered a better one on line. The new one is supposed to be here in the next few days, but with the holidays happening, we may have to wait a bit longer. We will probably order a few more and do a comparison test on them, and send back what we don't want. Does anyone use trail cams while camping? What brand and model number do you guys have? How is it's performance at night?
