Default Moultrie Question??

What do you guys think about the Moultrie D-40?? I found a pretty good deal on two of them. My main concern is just to get a good idea of what is going on. The clearest picture is not a major concern. And I think I would rather have two, than one better one, but I would like opinions first. Thanks, Tom.

i've seen them on sale for $80 at my local cabelas - just so you know. $100 is the normal price though.

it's an ok camera. i would never recommend it to anyone unless they were really worried about theft. expect grainy pictures and short flash range. for the price it can't be beat. personally, i'd spend the extra for an i-40.

do you have any night pictures to show? Mine were really grainy. Your pictures are better then any I got w/ my d40. I might have had a bad one, I also had quite a few other problems with it. the most annoying was that the clock would lose like 10 minutes a day. after a couple weeks the clock was pretty much meaningless. Also, my flash range was completely terrible! I could barely recognize targets that were about 10' from the camera.

compared to the d-40 the i-40 is absolutely incredible. WELL worth the extra $100 in my opinion.

If you are not worried about having high quality photos, it is probably the best deal out there.

My only complaint is the weak flash at night. Other than that, you cant beat the d-40 for the price. If you can put it close to the food source to get a still picture at night, the camera is great. I have three and havent had a grainy picture yet. Plus, the trigger speed is not horribly slow either.

Here is one take at night for you. My camera went thru the flood here, and it was flat on the ground facing up, taking pictures of sticks floating by on top of the water. I brought it home, and dumped the water out, dried everything off, and it still works fine.
