    I am a Moultrie man myself. Not to say they are the best because most of the trail cameras on the market today are very similar. If I were to pick a camera today it would be one that held 10-12 AA only. The main reason is to maintain long term battery life. When the weather cools the battery life will fall off. I got all Moultrie’s and I can get about 3 months out the batteries...that is all. The new M-100’s look like the ticket..

    I also have one of the 55 IR cams. That thing does take great pictures and battery life is crazy. I got almost a year out of the last set. Only problem I have had is that thing has a slow slow slow trigger speed. Other than that great. I recently purchased the M-80 which is a step down from the M-100. I love that one even more. You can do all day plot and take IR night pics with it. You can configure it to take one to two hours of plot in mourn and evening or set it to do only motion detection pics. The clarity is great and the trigger speed is an improvement over the 55. Only issue I have had is sometimes the day and night sensors are either to early or to late. I might get an evening clip with 20 pictures taken after dark. The IR on the 80 is also very bright. Suprisingly though I have had a lot less pictures of spooked deer with the 80 than the 55. I think it may be the noise that the 55 makes when the shutter goes off. For the money I think that both of these are great cams. I am going to purchase another M-80 befor to much longer.

    Notice how wide the pic is of the turkey. That M-80 has a really wide capture area.

    Oh Moultrie....
    I have had a Moultrie 55 but mine is the white flash version and it has worked great since I got it. It takes great pictures Check out the one of the owl in flight below. But it seems lately Moultrie's quality and customer service has dropped or something. I ordered two things form them a month ago and they sent me the wrong camera and a feeder that didn't work. Finally sent me the right camera and the IR flash doesn't work. So $170 later I put my $89 55 back out lol
