Spypoint IR-6
Semi compact.
Easy to navigate and set up.
46 IR illumination.
Tiggered in low light IR's befor the other two cameras.
Inside falls out everytime you open the door.

Videos is same as above, enter at 40 feet and circle around bush at 50 feet.

Don't forget low quality of YouTube.

OK, pulled the cameras.
Owner of archery shop needed the cameras for the weekend for display purposes at his vendor both.
He will return them for me to put back in the field for more test.

I will do the next few post about what I found for each camera in the 1st week they were out.

OK, 1st up is the Wildgame X6C.

I must have not hit enter to change it from video mode to picture mode when I was doing the 1st night testing, so I only have videos and no still pictures. ( Sorry ).
Camera held time and date perfectly.
It took 29 videos in the weeks time, my Bushnell is three trees over and took 429 pictures ( three picture burst with 2 second delay between burst ).
Battery life seemed untouched. ( using Duracell rechargeables 2650mah ).
Video quality is very good, day and night.
I am going to up load videos to photobucket hoping quality is better the Youtube.
Next time out I will put it right next to the Bushnell for speed and quality comparison.
I won't forget the picture mode this time.

Here are some videos from the Wildgame.

Predator Traileye IR up next.

Predator did not hold time or date. ( went to Jan. 2010 )
Reasons, I don't know, I'll reset and see what happens next time out.
Reaction time is slower them my Bushnells.
Deer were almost out of picture frame when picture was taken.
Seemed to be low on quantity of pictures, my Bushnell get 125+ pictures per week ( Predator had 9 picture in the week ).
Don't forget that the fastest the Predator will take pictures is one picture every ten seconds. ( my Bushnells are set at 3 picture burst with a 2 second delay in between burst )
Picture quality is EXCELLENT, very sharp and clear.
When camera was put out battery gauge was at 98%, after the week and only 9 pictures it was down to 60%. ( Duracell rechargeables 2650mah ).
I'll see what next time out brings.
Here are some pictures.

Last up, Spypoint IR6.

Spypoint did not hold time, Date was right, but it lost 5+ hours in the weeks time.
Battery level is done in 1/3rds on the Spypoins gauge.
When out at full charge and ended at the 2/3rds in the weeks time.
Took about the same weekly amount as my Bushnells in this location.
Reaction time is slower then the Bushnells.
Objects were further into the first picture then compared to the bushnells.
Picture quality is good, but seemed blurry on movement.
In the last picture, I approached from far away from the camera, walked in a fa fairly slow pace and this was the first picture of the four picture burst.
This may help you get an idea of reaction time from me walking in.

Maybe to do a little quality comparison.

These two pictures where at the same exact spot, just at different time.

Fawm picture on the Bushnell is set @ 5mp and in daylight the Predator is also 5mp.

Both picture have clouds in the sky, but I am not sure of how much bright light.

Colors and detail, the Predator has the edge.

Great reviews, thanks for going to all the trouble to do them. I really like the picture quality of the predator but it sounds like it may have alot of other issues.

About the Predator,
I am going to go through the manual again and see what I can find.
There is no picture burst mode, fastest is one picture with a 10 second delay. (one picture every 10 seconds ).
Longest and fastet video is 10 seconds long and with a 10 second delay.

I didn't like finding the batteries so low after a week alomg with the time and date being messed up.

Trigger speed needs to be faster, but the picture quality was excellent.
