Default Stealth Cam problems

For the people that have a Stealth Trail Camera. Has anyone ever had the camera not working correctly when it is cold. The last couple of days the temperture has been in the 30's, and for some reason the camera doesn't work correctly. I brought the thing home last night and it worked perfectly. Any one else had this sort of problem? If so any suggestions?

I have a Stealth Cam and have had problems in cold weather also. Mine uses "AA' batteries and I read that Lithium batteries worked well in cold temps. So I switched to Energizer Lithium which are of course more expensive. They seemed to work well in temps around 25 -30 range. But just this past week we had temps in the teens and the camera isn't working well at all. So now I search for a camera that'll work in temps around 10 degrees.

I have had 3-4 different madel Stealth's. They all started out fine but it didn't last very long before I had different prblems with each of them, ranging from the flash to white outs to burst mode malfunctions. All I can say is spend some money and buy a Reconyx...they're AMAZING!!!!

I have the I450 and so far it has been working fine. The temps have been in the 20's at night.. The white -out's were a problem when the canopy was think but now thet the leaves are off no problem with that. The only other glich I have noticed is the first pic now is blacked out. No idea why that is happening.. I also have mine hooked up to a 12 volt batt.

Yup, I am never buying another stealth cam again. The first one i bought was a 35 mm and it worked fine, the past 3 i bought didnt even work at all.
