Look at the range on this cam. That deer is back there about 20 - 25 yards from that cam

Nice Pics.. I told you they had a hell of a IR flash and sensor range. Luckily they also have a dial where you can turn it down if you want. Just make sure to use the test mode if you turn it down to make sure you didn't turn it down too far.

The flash and sensor range is impressive. It compares to a BEC on those two levels. Trigger speed is solid as well. Nice pics Adam...

That trigger distance is crazy lol. I had 43 pics in 24hrs over the mineral site. It is getting hammered by that doe and her twin fawns. The small bucks seem to like it too. The other great thing was....No coon pics lol. I adjusted the angle of the cam to show the lick a little better. Had a few slip in from the backside and only caught a shoulder as it turned to walk away. Added a small 4# salt block and will check back in a couple weeks on this cam.

Oh and I figured out the question I texted about a couple hours ago ;).

DSCIM folder so it is still the same as before. Not sure why it wouldn't read it on my older cam but it does work on my daughters canon :).

I had to slide the switch all the way down to VIEW and see how many pics where on the trail cam so I got that figured out too lol.

It has 5 sensor zones but it also has a temp neutral thing it does also.. So while the sensor may be sensitive, it tries not to take pictures of "temperature neutral" objects. Like licking branches etc...

I usually turn the cam off. Then slide it to view, then turn the cam back on.

I don't know why but I like to make all my changes with the cam off, then turn it back on after i've set everything. No particular reason, i read that one time on the forum a long time ago about another cam, I don't know if it still applies to cams, but it works for me.

I do the same thing. Turn it off before sliding the switches. I actually think the first cam I purchased a few years ago said you had to do it so I always do it now. Like you, I'm not sure if it is required with cams now but just a habit I got into with my first cam.

Could be one of two things.. He either has it set on the L (low) setting. Or Photobucket cut down the quality.

Thanks.

The cams are great so far. The night pics are great and so is the range. The daytime pics will look better once I get my butt out there and change the MP up to the 6 instead of the 3mp lol.

I still have the other SpyPoint cam out there too. I hope I got something on it and have the pics set at the 6mp lol.

Battery life is so important to me, so keep us updated on how that goes for you with this model please. The IR-6 was what I was considering TOO! Thanks!
