    Trail cameras

    Who uses them? I have several out there, getting some really good hi res images (12meg) great for zooming in (I'm in pretty open country). Any one else getting some good images of animals apart from Moon? What brands are worth while and which are POS. Tips for placement, avoiding false activations etc.

    Heres some from a ltl Acorn 6210.It has the MMS feature so pics get sent to my phone and email. Obviously needs cell coverage and its not great here. Out of 191 pics only 15 had been sent.Camera now has a moisture problemIm in the process of trying to sort it.I have read that it has been an ongoing issue and they doing an upgrade but itl be interesting to see how they respond to my problem.The night pics are not brilliant but I havnt seen any that are yet. Sensor speed is very good with the pre sensor set up it has and day time pics are nice.

    Reconyx!! If your not making a doco for discovery chanel you dont need a high MP camera, but what you do want is very good detection and very fast trigger speed. RECONYX !! end of story!!

    I have the MP set on 5, the trigger speed is fine at .8 second and has pre sensors that activate the system , all of the animals are captured initally as they enter the zone with good folowup shots as they walk through, detction seems fine.Its the MMS feature that I wanted to try mostly. Initial shots where aprox 2 mins delay befoer the pic got my phone but I think the moisture stuffed things up early on.The cell site here is due for an up grade aswell. Those night shots are good, do RECONYX do MMS systems?

    I was looking at buying one of those ltl Acorn cameras, but from your night shots it doesn't seem to have much of a flash? I do like the idea of them sending mms to your phone though.

    I had a go at increasing the brightness of some of your night shots below (how far away were the deer from the camera?).

    The Wildview camera I borrowed from Gadgetman last year took reasonable night shots.
