Default Stealthcam--@#%$@!!!!!!

I put out my new Stealthcam, and picked it up this evening. It would make a great commercial for Cuddeback, because 19 out of 25 pics triggered too late, with nothing in the picture!!![:@]Let's like I will be spending a lot more money, unless someone can recommend one that works consistently without breaking the bank.

Did you have it aimed at something the sun was shining on and triggering it. Or if some weed or leaves in front it were moving, that could trigger it also.

I didn't want to hear that, I just picked one up yesterday from Gander Mtn. As we speak I'm setting it up and learning how to use it. I got the I230, anyone else have the pros and cons of it? Preferably pro's lol...

Another tip is to make sure the camera isn't to close to where you expect the deer. With my camera, if the deer are right next to the camera I have the same problem. I also put it at an angle to the trail.... The deer tend to be walking towards me or away - but either way I see what I'm after...

Here's a couple of pics from my cheap trail camera - the deer are actually quite a distance away from the camera. I placed the camera angeling towards where I expected the deer to come from:

No direct sunlight, no moving objects. I tried walking in front of it myself, ans it was several seconds before the flash went off. Batteries weren't low either. Maybe I got a lemon.
