Deer Cameras

Reply
I am thinking of purchasing a digital(not 35mm) deer camera and wanted to post a question to any of you who either own or have used one. I am only interested in real experience, not hear-say. Please indicate the brand and both positive and negative experiences using the camera.

I am not sure that this is what you are looking for, but it is the only site that I have for EZPlanner.

I recently got the Moultrie Game Spy Digital camera and I am very impressed with it. You have the option of up to three pictures per activation, and you can take 10 second video clips when the flash is not needed. I have been using it for about 2 months now and I love it. The video option is great. The only drawback is that the sensor may be a little less sensitive than some of the more expensive models, but at 180 bucks and no picture developing costs, you can't go wrong. With a 128 megabyte SD card, you basically have an unlimited amount of space.

I have been using snapshot sniper digital this past year works fine. I am thinking about getting another one. I set it every 15 minutes and it is user freindly.

I too am in the market for a digital camera. Looks like battery life is one of the most important factors. Cuddeback non-typical uses four D size batteries and advertises up to six months of battery life. However, most cameras do not list battery size and or battery life. Any info on battery sizes and type is much appreciated.

I have a cam traker and hate it. It's been in the shop once and is getting ready for it's second trip. First the toggle switch broke and now the heat sensor is broke. Next one will be a Cuddeback. I've heard nothing but good things and I've seen the pictures they take. Awesome camera.

How long have your batteries lasted? I have been thinking about getting that camera. The Bushnell model also looks good. Still shopping.

I got the solar charger and rechargeable battery from Wal-Mart and it works great. The normal batteries only lasted about a week, depending on how cold it was, but the rechargeable battery works great with the charger. The camera has connections for the solar charger.

I'll plan on getting the solar charger and rechargeable battery. I haven't had much success with battery life on the cheap 35 mm cameras.

I have found several camera manufacturers who sell on E-bay. These folks build them theirself. Their cameras seem to have more features than the ones that Cabelas and other type mail order catalogs offer for less money. These folks can even customize with different otions for you.

I just ordered the Cuddeback Non-Typical digital.
Should have it by tomorrow, and will set it in the woods this weekend.

I use the stealth cam in 35mm. works on 8 double A's. Never had problem one with it, left it on the tree from sept. and just took it off last weekend and only changed out batteries once. Pictures come out graet at night or in the day and it only costs $60.00 at wal-mart and the same in cabela's but thru them there are shipping charges. You can't beet 35mm. especially if you don't have top of the line printers to print out the pictures.

Checked to see if there were any new pics on my new Cuddeback digital camera today. Had 11, however, all were of racoons at night. All pics were extremely clear. The flash is obvious at night, but during the day, when the camera takes a pic, it is totally silent.
