The Browning Dark Ops is great. But cost is high.

I also have 1 Wgi Silent crush litesout. Has 2 lens. It also takes satisfactory vids. Pretty clear. I am sold on video mode.

I tried all resolutions available but the pics and video all look the same to me. Most times I can make out what I need to see but compared to the Browning cameras it’s night and day. The Coverts are black flash and the Brownings are ir but it doesn’t seem to bother the deer and I get much better pictures and video. This is just my observations though.

Next time I check cameras I will set up a Browning and a Covert side by side on video and compare them. I will put them facing 90 deg from each other on a road so the flash doesn’t get picked up by the other camera.

I just purchased a new trail cam through Camofire and got it in yesterday. It's a Spypoint Force 11D. Supposed to have the fastest camera trigger speed on the market at .07 sec. Looked at reviews for months before I finally decided on this one. What I really like about it is that the video has sound and it has a 100' flash range as well as a view screen so I don't have to wait to put sD card in my computer or card reader on my phone to view pics. I'm pumped to try it out. Price was great too...retail is $149 and got it for $85. Gotta love Camofire.

Another update....

Yesterday I was sent 2 new Moultrie cameras to replace the first 2 that would stop taking pictures after a few minutes.

The first cameras were the M-40 and they sent me new M-50. I think the only difference is a better ??? camera..... 16 MP vs 20 MP.

They are rated for a 100 feet flash and 80 feet detection range.

I did several test by walking out in the yard to trigger the cameras.

First camera.... 42 feet D / 44 feet night
41 feet D / 42 feet night on second test.
42 feet Video Daytime.

Second camera...… 28 feet D / 32 feet night
33 feet D / 34 feet night on second test
35 feet D Video
38 feet D second test.

The second camera detections range is about 10 feet shorter.

The picture and video quality is fairly good on both cameras. Trigger speed is good... .3 seconds. Night time picture range is a little farther on both cameras.... I thought daytime range would be farther. The flash in the nighttime pictures lights up objects probably out to 100 feet [as advertised].

Is a range of a little over 40 feet all that can be expected for a camera in the $ 65 price range. Do the more expensive trail cameras have a better [different] motion sensor? The second camera is only taking pictures at less than half the advertised detection range.

Should I send the second camera back.... both ??? Not sure what I will do now.

I just did some night time Video testing.

Camera 1 Triggered out to 47 feet.

Camera 2 Triggered out to 40 feet.

One test I did was that I triggered the camera and then ran farther away. The video was good out to 80 feet before the video stopped. But it was starting to get kind of dark at that distance.

IMO, trail camera flash range and detection range are somewhat like new car gas mileage. They don't perform as stated.
