Has anyone tried one of these cameras that automatically takes a ficture every couple minutes or whatever?  I have areas on an edge of a field that one regular trail cam won’t cover and thought these style cameras would work well.  Should be better then setting up 3 different cameras in one area.

I think the software that comes with the cameras take all the photos and puts them in a video.  They say a day worth of pics is a 3 minute video.  I did notice that 4 AA batteries lasts for 84 hours of video.  Not sure what they mean by that.  Primos has one out for a decent price.

A friend of mine markets these cameras.  I too am looking at them and he indicated depending on how you set the camera up, you can get 5 - 6 days in a set of batteries.  Of course, a nice set of rechargables is called for IMHO…

Otherwise, I really like the concept.  In addition, you can set it up at another stand locale before you hunt and retrieve after and see what you missed if you hunted that stand instead.. :D

I have read a lot read a lot of reviews about these and the biggest complaint I heard was that they always started late in the morning.  So they missed the prime morning a lot.
