two flash cameras.......deer may get spoked by a flash of light...but i am always thinking..a deer does not know what a "flash of light" is so worst case senerio i think he or she would just not walk right on that trail again...he is not going to leave that area because some flash of light ....atleast that is my experience with it....

Got any proof? I would get two flash cameras and double my odds. In my area flash doesn't seem to spoke or alter deer movement at all.

I bought 4 Moultrie IR40s last month. To my suprise when the pic was taken there were more deer looking at the cam than my cams with the flash. One evening I walked by the cam and discovered that all the IR lights turned red for at least 2-3 seconds while the camera took the pic. It totally defeated the purpose of not having a flash.

When you by infrared Dan thats what you get. Them little red lights gather the light for the pic at night. And when you take videos them little red lights are on for what ever length you have the video mode set for. These deer spoke more from the sound of my cuddebacks then the little red lights I think. Either way they get spooked from either camera in one way or another. I use the no flash cuddes, I feel better about it.

So, how does the Cuddeback No-Flash take night pics? Is it the same? I guess I could look it up. [:-]

Yep, Same thing. When it takes black and white pics the little red lights flash for a second or so. When it takes video's at night depending on how long you set the video for, it can go anywhere from o seconds to a minute of video and the whole time its taking video the little red lights are flashing on and off. Some deer I've gotten video of spook and some don't. Allot of them are more curious then anything from what I've seen.

2 flash trail cams. First I want as many cams possible. Second I'm not so cashed up that I can spend that kind of money and not care if its stolen(a real possibility where I hunt). Third I dont think the deer spook more with either camera.
