    Trail Cam setting advice

    Hi, got a couple of new game cams. I dont want to use the vid setting with these ones as im going to leave them longer in the bush.
    In the past the old ones i used had a one photo, one video setting which worked good but lasted about 6 weeks tops as the vid ate the battieres life.
    Question is, if not using the vid, which setting is everyone using to get the best pictures. Ie 1 picture, 5 second delay, 10 second or 30 second delay etc or 3 short burst and what delay?
    On a game trail i suppose using least of a delay is better, on a wallow hole maybe more of a delay. ASdvice would be good cheers as just used to the old ones and the settings were fine but these ones i prob leave for 3 months plus etc

    I don't think mine are set up with any delay at all.

    I find all trail cams are different so you may want to experiment before putting them out for months at a time to actually see how they perform. I find some are more sensitive than others to blowing winds, some are battery hogs, some take really good still pics but ok video and vice versa and so on.
