Lots of good reviews on the Moultrie GameSpy M80. I have two of the M100 which is a higher version. There were no M80 in stock at the dealer when I bought mine. Moultrie offers a one year manufacture warranty. When set to video, the camera takes a picture first, then the video. Field of view in the video is narrower than in the picture. Moultrie said this is how it down loads. Moultrie cameras are limited to a 10 second night video. When I first bought my D55-IR, Moultrie said they had no plans to upgrade their software for extending night video and at that time no plans to lengthen the night video in future cameras. They said it would be harder on batteries. I have had very good customer service from them inregards to any required information. As a suggestion, whatever brand you decide on, a camera that uses AA batteries: 1) is easier to conceal due to its smaller size, 2)if you plan to use the camera in colder weather, one is able to use the Lithium Ultimate batteries. These are a high voltage battery testing 1.79 to 1.83 volt fresh out of the package.
I have seven of the 2009 model Bushnell Trophy Trail cameras. These have given excellent service. Bushnell offers a two year manufactures warranty. Again, another company with very good customer service. Good luck in your choice.

If I were going to buy a commercial cam, I would recommend three different ones. A Moultrie M80, a Bushnell Trophycam, or a Covert.
