Default Anyone ever use stealth cam

I am considering buying my first IR Cam I really like the moultrie I40 but the local sporting goods store has a couple clearance stealth cam IR's for half the price just wondering if they are decent or not.

I dont know about steath, but I've had an I40 for about a month now and I can pretty much promise that you will be happy with it. They are well worth the price.

Do you like buying batteries? I own a stealth I-450 (with a back up rechargable battery) and a moultrie m-40 and I use twice the amount of batteries in the stealth than I do in the Moultrie.

An example: I put out my camera's a month ago, I checked them this last week and the Stealth died within 2 weeks and the Moultrie had 83% battery available. The Moultrie had 200 + pictures on it (mostly at night) and the Stealth had less than 100. I had to send the Stealth back to the factory because it would not take pictures after sitting for a while, they replaced it no problem. The only issue that I have with my moultrie is that I get a ton of black outs at night like the flash is not going off. I need to update the software to make sure that is not the issue but, I learned my lesson when it comes to buying camera's Stick with what has always worked for you.

I would love to get my hads on a Moultrie 3.1 (the older models)

I have never owned a Moultrie, but the Stealth Camera I have works pretty good. I use the 12 volt battery system and they last for about three months. The only thing I don't like about the Stealth is during the extreme cold it likes to freeze up.

I have a stealth cam thats 3 yeras old now and i loved it, the only problem was that the batteries (AA) were dead in a night cuz of all the pictures which were only like 80 a night or so... Also the time to tkae the picture after the deer walks by it is to slow, the pictures do come clear though..

if you can stomach paying for the i40 - then do it. Your 'cost of ownership' will be higher with the stealth. I have 2 stealth i450's and i'm happy with them, but I definitely wish I had spent the money on moultries.
