Primos Truth Cam 60

My Truth cam came in the mail a week ago, although my rechargeable batteries didn't come in until yesterday. I set the cam up behind the house and was happy to see that it was an easy setup. It took a few pictures while I was standing there and sadly "The Clunk" was really noticeable. I went back this morning because i needed to resupply the corn and figured i might as well switch the cards also.

from the results some of the deer don't like the clunk at all.


I have never had a deer run away from a camera. Although they kept coming back through the night and they were there at 8am this morning.


My buddy the crabclaw buck comes for dinner every night as well.

Those look like 35 pics, so I'll be interested to see what setting it was on. I was happy with my first week of operation and I had mine set on 60 and it seemed to have a much better flash range than that. I don't have pics with me now, but I'll get some up soon...

Post it up Milo. I would like to see what it is about. I noticed my 35 does it on occasion.

I double checked and it is on 60 led. When I bring it in this weekend I'll mess around with the settings and see if I can get it to be brighter. I saw the link Milo but i dunno if I want to tear open my cam and possibly break it.

Dang. I'll post mine later. They didn't seem that dark at all...

I'm sending my 35's back in next week to have the clunk fixed. I hear the 60's, but not enough to fool with sending it in. I'll see what they 35's sound like before I get carried away...

Find out from these guys how often they are replacing batteries. I will not tell you I get a year out of my Trophy Cams, but I will tell you I am getting more than 10months out of them so far. In fact, I have 4 and my buddy has two. I have swapped the batteries on the cameras I put out last year. The two I bought this year (ordered mine and my buddy's at same time) have not had batteries touched. If you expect to spend $10-20/month on batteries then think about spending $20/yr on them and the extra money for the Trophy Cam doesn't seem too bad.
