Default new trophy cam

broke down and bought a trophy cam since i have no idea when stealth will get my prowler to me. love the size and set up of the trophy cam but seems way to dark during low light times.
any one else noticing this with theirs or did i get a dud
bright daytime and night pics are ok at best

I haven't been able to set mine out yet. Used in the back yard only. Pics were pretty good. My camera and printer will not read the 2 gb card though.

If you are refering to the new Bushnell Trophy Cam I have two of them out and am NOT impressed so far. It seems to easily take pictures of me but fails to take many pictures of animals. I am currently baiting for bear and have gotten a total of ONE picture of the bear so far and a couple of a doe. I have sat and watched racoons walk right up to the bait and dig around and the camera does not trigger. My bait has gotten torn up nearly every other day and ZILCH for pictures. The camera is about 10-15 feet from the bait.
I will give it a little more time and if it continues the way it is.....well, they'll be returned.

Yep. Same problem here with the daytime pictures being to dark. That can be solved though using Picasa 3. I had to send mind back after only 3 weeks because it quit working.

I had 2 of them. One took several pictures before it completely stopped working. The second never took any pictures. They went back to Cabelas immediately. Loved the size of them. Too bad they have issues.

sounds like its a good thing they have that 2 year warranty !!!
of course if warranty is as slow as stealth its about useless

After issues with Bushnell many years ago and their "warrantee" I swore I would NEVER again buy another Bushnell product. I guess I was caught at a weak moment when I was in Cabela's and saw the camo model on sale for $200. I got two and maybe they both have issues.
I am not satisfied with either of them yet. But I will give it some time to see if maybe it is me.
