Default Looky at what I got.........

My local archery shop has put some trail cameras in my hands for some testing.
I have been getting some great pictures with my existing trail camera and he wanted me to do some in the field testing with some camera that he is going to carry. I will post results and pictures over the next few weeks.
Boy it feels almost like Christmas.

The cameras are:

Wildgame X6C

Predator trailcams Traileye IR

Spypoint IR-6

Yeh, LOL.
They actually are not a gift, But I am getting to use them for a month or so.

I have four Bushnells that I own out now.
I may put some of these not far from the bushnells to see differences in picture quality and so on.

I'm curious to see what kind of pic quality you get out of the Predator, I know the wildview won't be the best, and I'v never heard of spypoint.

thats not a wildview, its wildgame innovations and the picture quality on that should be very good. cant wait to see pictures from the 3! what an awesome deal to get to test them.

whitetail fanatic: I have two Spy Point IRB trail cameras. I have been well satisfied with them. These cameras are manufactured in Quebec, Canada. For more information go to: www.SpyPoint.com The camera is fairly large, uses 6 "C" batteries. They have a gripper tooth system at the back of the camera so they won't slide on the tree. The strap has what I call a roll over buckle: just tighten the strap and lever over the buckle. The camera can be set for picture or video and accept up to an 8 GB SD card. I use Lexar and SanDisk cards, just format a used card in the computer and your set to go. I think the newer versions will accept up to 16 GB. Camera set up is very easy. Customer service has been excellent. Warranty is one year from the manufacture. The camera also has a 12 volt external port. Information on their site is a little hard to get into. It is listed in French and English. Being they are a French company, their priority is the French language, but bouncing around in the site one can usually find what one is looking for, or just email them. Good luck in your testing.

I did a quick video test of the Wildgame and Spypoint.
It was low light conditions, the Wildgame DID NOT use it's IR's where the Spypoint DID us it's IR's.
I am going outside now to do a video with each camera and compare quality and brightness.
Here are the low light condition videos of the two camera test.
Note these videos were taken at the exact time.

Starting with the Wildgame X6C.
It is small and compact.
Easy to navigate and set.
Easy to open and attach with included bungy cord straps.
18 IR's

Now about the night video test I just did, my path in front of each camera was 40 feet away. I could not trigger the Wildgame camera until I got about 35 feet away.
During each video from each camera I circled around the same bush for IR distance test of each camera.
The Wildgame also has a noticeable red light that flashes when movement is present. It will flash until the IR's glow red and the camera take the video.
When the video is finish the red blinking light now flashes green.
Compare this video to the others.

*** Note the quality after uploaded to YouTube is very, very poor. It is much better then what you see on Youtube, but you will see a difference between the different cameras videos ***
